Buddy B's Weekly News Report for the Week of 3/24/14: Everything That Fits!

As Tina Charles sang, "I Love to Love." But some people love to hate! Go figure. Yes, the world would be a better place without them. And that brings us to the death of the virulently anti-gay hate monger, Fred Waldren (rhymes with cauldron) Phelps, founder of the Westboro Baptist Church, who died late last week.

Huffington Post reported: Under Phelps' leadership, Westboro members have preached that every calamity, from natural disasters to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, is God's punishment for the country's acceptance of homosexuality. Phelps had advocated for gays and lesbians to be put to death.

"Fred Phelps will not be missed by the LGBT community, people with HIV/AIDS and the millions of decent people across the world who found what he and his followers do deeply hurtful and offensive," the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force said in a statement.

Freddie's son, Nathan, insisted his dad was excommunicated from WBC. His daughter insisted there would be no funeral because "we do not worship the dead." They only dishonor them. Of course, I think Westboro Baptists ~ largely a bunch of inbred Phelps fucktards if I must say so (and I must) ~ were basically making these pronouncements to the press because they didn't want to have... well, you know, any sort of nasty, hateful protests at the funeral.

Reaction by the LGBT community was restrained.

And on Sunday, June 23, when the reverential WBC lot showed up with erudite and sophisticated signs that read "God Hates Sluts" and their ever-popular "God Hates Fags" at a Lorde concert in Kansas City, fans of the New Zealand pop star "met them with a new tactic: killing them with kindness," wrote the New York Daily News. "From the opposite side of the street, the rival protesters sent their condolences to the followers of Fred Phelps, the longtime pastor of the Church who died on Wednesday of natural causes. Megan Coleman helped make the sign for the Friday night protest with the simple words: 'Sorry for your loss.'"

As in "Fuck off, losers!" In my most humble opinion.

The UK's Guardian described Phelps as "an angry, bigoted man who thrived on conflict." R.I.H. (Roast in Hell), Fred Cauldron Phelps.

Meanwhile, such bile has been expressed toward the cover of the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair featuring Kanye and Kim. (Posted at top.)  I mean, it's like they're the most hated couple in America
or something! Oh..., wait a minute!

"I'd like to nominate honey boo boo for the cover of next year's age issue," Tweeted a reader.

"If you think you're upset about Kim K's Vogue cover imagine how Paris Hilton feels! 'That big butt girl used to arrange my closet'," wrote another.

Rumor has it Kanye paid off editor Anna Wintour for this month's cover. Most likely true. And, besides, controversy sells!

Until next week, signing off on my latest news report. And remember, dahlings, it's all love, it really is!
