Alright, Fred Phelps. We get it. You don’t like things. That’s kind of like your whole thing. In fact, when events happen we now just automatically assume you won’t like it. There’s no need for you to come out and protest anymore, so just stay home. Think of the gas money you’ll save.
But as bad as Fred Phelps is, there’s always somebody worse. Well, maybe in this case, there’s not. In order to find someone more loathsome than our boy Fred, we have to look to the world of fiction. So, we did. Here are seven other preachers and holy men from the world of cinema who are worse than Fred Phelps.
Eli Sunday is a little high on himself and his holy power, claiming that “God doesn’t save stupid people.” I guess he’s right in some ways. After all, he does stupidly provoke Daniel Plainview to steal from him and issue multiple beatings. He should have just been happy with his milkshake.
Anyone who has ever paid for a wedding knows that priests love free meals and being tipped out. So why Michael Corleone would hand over $600 million to the Vatican and expect a return on his investment is beyond me. All is really earns him is a lot of bloodshed. Including his own.
