Personal Quote:

The Lord is punishing this evil nation for abandoning all moral imperatives that are worth a dime.

Trivia:

Part of a failed mission to convert Mormons in Vernal, Utah, with fellow students from Bob Jones University in 1947. After delivering a sermon condeming the Mormon religion, the mission leader was asked a theological question he did not know the answer to; Phelps responded by attacking the man who'd asked the question, resulting in a near riot.
