GamesRadar vs. Shirley Phelps-Roper

GR: I do. I was just wondering if you and your guild ever went online. Spread your message through anything like Second Life or World of Warcraft.

SPR: Well you know that we are online, right? We have the godhates****.com and

GR: I don’t think you have a lot of gamers heading to godhates****.com, but if you popped into a game with a virtual organization, you could speak to more people dynamically. The real-life protests you do are dangerous. I saw a documentary where a child in your group was hit with something.

SPR: You mean the cup?

GR: Someone threw a fountain drink at his head. Don’t you think an online scenario would be a little safer?

SPR: [Laughs] You’re cracking me up.

GR: Well what about music games?

SPR: I don’t know what you mean by that, but I do know we have music videos.

GR: No, I mean there are music games you can interact with-

SPR: Yeah, but we’ve got music videos. “God Hates the World” - awesome stuff! And we’ve also got other stuff at

GR: Okay. What are some of your music videos?

SPR: "God Hates the World." It’s awesome!

GR: Have you heard of Rock Band?

SPR: I do know that Rock Band. I know some of these kids play Rock Band. Whatever the mechanism is to get the words to the faith of a generation, that’s what we’re interested in doing.

GR: Do you think your songs would make a good transition to Rock Band as downloadable content.

SPR: Yeah, that’ll happen. The people that are running Rock Band will be interested in hearing “God Hates the World” or all those [anti-] military songs if you go to our site you can hear those.

GR: We’ll try and provide a link to those. [Ed. Note: We failed.] What are the choice cuts for Rock Band?

SPR: Of course “God Hates the World” is an excellent video. The there’s also “There Are No Heroes.” They’re parodies. “God Hates the World” is to “We Are the World.”

GR: Ah.

SPR: “There Are No Heroes” is a parody of the songs that are on the Shrek thing. Some are just the audio. They’re really cute little videos. Our latest sign movie that you will really, really love is “*** Soldier in Hell.”

GR: …

SPR: And the one that went up just before that one is “You Will Eat Your Children”.

GR: “You Will Eat Your Children”?

SPR: They’re good stuff! And the graphics, the guys [making them] are getting better all the time. There’s a bunch of little picket signs. With music and images and so forth. There’s some really powerful ones like “God Blew Up the Troops” that just explains what the picket signs are all about. Our signature sign was done by our pastor, the God Hates **** sign. It’s all good stuff.

    I'm Catholic and she is freaking insane. Insane!"Looks like there were two Christian Nuts on that podcast" said Chris. She belongs in a mental institute.

    As much as I don't want to sound violent, I hope the crazy lady goes through the pearly gates with some appendages missing
  • 4fromK - March 28, 2010 9:45 p.m.

    I kind of liked her. but then I admire someone who says what they really believe, even (maybe especially) if that beleif is as batshit insane as "heath ledger is in hell for portraying gay people". Oh and LOL I just googled the "biblical quote" she said about columbine, and it has ONE result. this article :P

    this woman seems a little sick in the head. i dont really think she's in her right mind because no one who has read ANY part of the Bible would think this way normally. anyway she is ridiculous to protest funerals. whats the point of making people feel worse when a loved one has already died. sick
  • Lolspamm0r - March 25, 2010 11:05 a.m.

    What a creepy person...
  • Kenzo - March 25, 2010 4:45 a.m.

    she's just dead wrong. the bible is all about how much God loves his people, not how everyone but some extremist is going to hell. God is Love, not hatred, and he loves everyone uncoditionally, EVERYONE. Even Mrs. psycho here. God hates sin and the devil, but he loves us, the sinners, because we are his children. The truly saddest part is that she is so dead-set on hating everyone that she has lost sight of what God's word really says, and takes little snippets of verses out of context so they fit her hate filled view of the world. I hope she comes to her senses before it's too late
  • cnote1239 - March 25, 2010 12:19 a.m.

    this lady's crazy but i'd wanna talk to her and try to understand how she forumulated her beliefs. it's psychologically interesting on so many levels.
  • GaryRedShoes - March 24, 2010 9:58 p.m.

    she is a bible noob.
  • ergreenday - March 24, 2010 9:42 p.m.

    Oh my god! This lady is the truest form of a oxi-moron! This is a fu@king insane woman!
  • Ded - March 24, 2010 9:24 p.m.

    Oh my god, did you manage to keep a straight face during that? The Phoenix Wright question lolled me up XD Wonder what she would make of a relgion-heavy game like Dante's Inferno, Darksiders or Bayonetta...

    well I was ex military and I saw the warning yet kept reading on. Don't worry...she'll get her just cause (HA!) one day.
  • AlexMercer1337 - February 7, 2010 7:22 a.m.

    She's so f-ing fascist, but what ticks me off is her blinding ignorance and petty beliefs. I think she thinks she's right, but she's just a bitch.
  • Thantos410 - February 1, 2010 10:57 p.m.

    That was far the most sick and twisted depiction of Christianity I've ever heard. Bravo Mrs. Crazy Woman!
  • hudiscapidicus - January 18, 2010 1:27 a.m.

    This is brilliant, I love how crazy religious Americans can be, this woman is a caricature of everything that's wrong with organised religion. I would love to spend a holiday in her mind (a very short one tho), it would be facinating, in a bizzare and terrifying sort of way... reCAPTCHA: handing negotiated. Sounds like haggling over the price of a happy-ending...
  • StupidFaceXD - November 12, 2008 3:38 a.m.

    I don't know if the people who said she needs to die are Christians or not, but the Bible says do not wish evil upon your enemies (sorry, I don't know the actual verse.) All I have to say is she isn't Christian. Her twisted mentality of what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ is so deluded it's as though they she was repeatedly beat up side the head with a bat. So I really think that she should go and read the ACTUAL Bible and not a cult's bible. By the way, I am a Christian. :D
  • katwood92 - November 7, 2008 12:34 a.m.

    As Christian, I can guarantee that she is not going where she thinks that she is. God is kind and merciful, and He spends a whole book saying so. She accuses others of corrupting the Word of God, but when you point a finger, four point back at you. She needs to reread the Bible, because she missed the main points. Her views on the Bible are so warped, the only reason that I could force myself to read it was because they were so illogical that I didn't really understand the "finer" points of what she was saying (and I'm no idiot. I had a 12th grade reading level, in the 6th grade. I'm now in 11th grade.). She professes hate and practices it herself, when the Bible clearly teaches love. She is the one who needs to get a clue! She misses concepts in the Bible that my six-year-old cousin clearly understands. I feel sorry for the 11 innocent children who were born to her, and all the others born into her wicked, corrupt "religion" that makes a mockery of Christian values, morals and even the God she claims to worship.
  • tarrow25 - November 5, 2008 9:31 p.m.

    John 3:16 says "for god so loved the world that he gave his own son that whoever believes in his shall never perish but have eternal life", not "For god so hated the world that he sent a crazy b*tch to damn us all to the firey bowels of hell". If your going to use the world of god to push forward your cult, then you should at least run the bible. I really do hope, for your sake, that god is merciful, because if he's not then I hope you enjoy hell.
