Dear Fred Phelps, Sr.,

I am grateful for crusaders like yourself and find your website “” to be both informative and a righteously riotous good time! But I think you are off base with your most recent fax.

In this fax you claim that the earthquake in China is due to their rebellion against God and you actually want more earthquakes to crush the “oriental ingrates.” Well, I just want to point out that without Chinese sweatshops great American companies like Wal-Mart would be forced to raise prices, thus hurting the American Christian Consumer. By putting Chinese children to work at an early age, we not only keep import prices low, but are also able to provide jobs to the needy, and take advantage of these children’s naturally small stature and tiny hands. Without this labor pool our textile costs would be such that many good Christians might no longer be able to afford clothes! (Imagine the shame if this were to happen.)

Remember, God gave us dominion over the lesser beasts!

I hope you don’t take offense with our disagreement over the Chinese, but if it makes you feel any better, I would totally be on your side if we were talking about the Dutch. Those wooden shoe wearing heathens all need to be held accountable.

By the way, it would make my day if I could get an autographed photo of you and your daughter Shirley Phelps-Roper.

Yours in Christ,

Christopher L. Jorgensen

p.s. I am praying you are called into the arms of Jesus soon.
