Liquor Store Owner Offers Champagne Discount To Celebrate Death Of Fred Phelps
Liquor store owner Bryan Kerr put up this provocative sign (pictured above) in the wake of Fred Phelps Sr.'s death. Funny move or inappropriate?
Oklahoma City's KOCO 5 News reports:
“People have really responded positively to it,” Moore Liquor owner Bryan Kerr said.
The sign reads in block letters: “Fred Phelps 1929-2014, Champagne 10% off! Not a coincidence.”
The leader of one of the most controversial congregations in the country died March 19. Kerr said Phelps’ death is cause for celebration.
“Champagne is a celebratory drink and so that’s why we gave 10 percent off,” he said. “If they choose to celebrate the passing of a little hate from this world, they can do so and we’re happy to oblige here at Moore Liquor.”
“I think it’s awesome. I think it’s a great sign,” said Roth Antonich, a customer.
