774. Where will Fred Phelps spend eternity?

My personal theology as to where Fred Phelps (and everyone else) will spend eternity. I, a Christian, do not believe in Hell. Historically (at least) four different words were used in place of our current English word Hell as it appears in Scripture, none of which adequately or absolutely describes the eternal fire often preached from the pulpit. I believe in the wide berth of God's Mercy. I believe Jesus when he said "in my father's house are many rooms." My belief is one of those rooms is reserved for Fred and others like him. Yes, he is vile and hateful. He is, like the rest of us, also a child of God. Thoughts (especially from other Christians)?

Never married, liberal Democrat, born in 1960, opinionated but generally pleasant, member of the Episcopal Church. Graduate of Prestonia Elementary, Durrett High, and Spalding University; the first two now-closed Jefferson County Public Schools, the latter a very small liberal arts college in downtown Louisville affiliated with the Roman Catholic Sisters of Charity of Nazareth. My vocation and avocation is politics. My favorite pastime is driving the backroads of Kentucky and southern Indiana, visiting small towns, political hangouts, courthouses, churches, and cemeteries. You are welcome to ride with me sometime.
