Storyline

Documentary tracking the exploits of aging Calvinist preacher Fred Phelps, a convicted felon who leads his cult (primarily composed of his wife, nine of their children, and his fifty-two grandchildren) on their "love crusades" across America, which include calling for gays to be killed, praising terrorist attacks, mocking mourners at the funerals of AIDS patients and murder victims, and literally dancing and spitting on the graves of his enemies. Written by Jojo Mac

Trivia

This was originally supposed to be a movie about people's ignorance of their own religion. When Steve Drain came across Fred Phelps he decided that Phelps had the most airtight theology of anyone he'd interviewed, and not only changed the course of the movie to focus entirely on Phelps, but he and his wife also joined Phelps's church/cult and made their daughters join as well.

Quotes

Fred Phelps: No intelligent, patriotic American will fly the flag any way but upside down. Bunch of heathens that are making an incestuous, idolatrous orgy of so called phony patriotism. Needs to be denounced. Needs to be squarely and roundly denounced from the scriptures as a great sin. God hates America: have a nice day!
