  1. I thought you folks might be interested in this interview with Megan Phelps, formerly of Westboro Baptist Church. It was on the radio as I was driving home from work today. I was pleased to hear this on a mainstream news programme here in the UK. http://bbc.in/1Tq38yZ
  2. http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2015/11/23/conversion-via-twitter-westboro-baptist-church-megan-phelps-roper All about Twitter...and her eventually leaving the church. Maybe social media can save other fundies too.
  3. not sure how he could do this legally. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/jin ... 3f9d18d240?
  4. but it was too little too late. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/05/2 ... 78433.html Pastor Fred Phelps, the infamous founder of the intolerant, quasi-religious Westboro Baptist Church, apparently had a change of heart before his death. On Thursday, Planting Peace, an anti-bullying, equal rights group that founded the Equality House directly across the street from WBC's headquarters in Topeka, Kansas, posted a message to Facebook allegedly from former WBC member Zacharias Phelps-Roper, son of Shirley Phelps-Roper. In the message, Phelps-Roper says his grandfather had an epiphany in front of the Equality House before he was voted out of the WBC. The message reads: Specifically, on the day that he was excommunicated, he stood outside of the front door of the church (but not within anyone's earshot but a few members of WBC who happened to be in the immediate vicinity)... I say, he spoke words to this effect to the Equality House: "You are good people." I feel like he had a change of heart after my grandmother nearly passed away, and he felt the pangs of loss ... he waited for news of her every day and night while she was in intensive care. I think this triggered a chain reaction whereby he developed great empathy for others... which would explain why he would support Planting Peace's anti-suicide and anti-bullying platforms, and their charities across the world.... I love my grandfather! And I believe people DO change, if they are inspired enough!
  5. Welcome to the real world, Zach Phelps-Roper! Mazal tov on your new freedom. http://cjonline.com/news/2014-05-05/fou ... ist-church
  6. As if America's most hated hate group wasn't busy enough picketing the Supreme Court, Westboro Baptist Church is taking a quick trip to ATL to take in the NCAA Final Four tournament and check out some sights. Given their history with Atlanta, I'm certain this little excursion has nothing to do with Kansas being one of the top teams eye-balling a spot in the Final Four. WBC claims that "the NCAA is a hot bed of God knows how many raping coaches, & a public relations outlet for fags and fag marriage." Rational as always, and apparently just another ploy to get their backwoods, closeted and sexually suppressed selves on Fox News. I only hope Atlanta's gay community is into college basketball. http://www.ajc.com/news/news/local/west ... sit/nW5fH/
  7. It appears our dear hate monger is on the edge of death. Also, and maybe more shockingly, he was ousted from the church: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyat ... -of-death/
  8. medium.com/turning-points/83d2ef8ba4f5 medium.com/reporters-notebook/d63ecca43e35 Megan & Grace Phelps-Roper leave the Westboro Baptist Church.
  9. sCan you imagine the foaming at the mouth reaction this may cause? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/07/1 ... 16642.html By now, everyone's just about had it with the Westboro Baptist Church, a group whose members use national tragedies as opportunities to forward anti-gay hate speech. Ironically, their planned protests often bring communities together in opposition to their message. Now, an unlikely group has mounted a gay offensive against the WBC. On Sunday, July 14, the Satanic Temple, a New York-based organization that seeks to foster "benevolence and empathy among all people" through Satan, performed a ritual called a "pink mass" at the Mississippi gravesite of Catherine Idalette Johnston, mother of WBC founder Fred Phelps Jr. The aim? To "turn" the WBC founder's mom gay for all eternity.
  10. This little girl is amazing She fully pissed off these misters and had them all riled up. I guess it is ok if you protest but if a 5 year old does it it does not feel as good. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/1 ... 44490.html What happens when a little girl decides to set up a lemonade stand for peace outside the Westboro Baptist Church headquarters in Kansas? Members of the community step out in droves to show support, even as the hate group tries to quash it. Five-year-old Jayden, the daughter of Jon Sink, founder of the philanthropic arts group FRESHCASSETTE - Creative Compassion, decided to set up a stand selling pink lemonade at The Equality House on Friday afternoon. The Equality House is a rainbow-colored building directly across the street from Westboro's Topeka compound. The house, which was painted the colors of the pride flag in March, was bought by Aaron Jackson, one of the founders of Planting Peace, a multi-pronged nonprofit set up in 2004 and aimed at spreading goodwill and equality around the globe. Jayden, who is from Kansas City, decided to set up her stand at the Equality House after her parents explained to her the significance of its construct. After being told that the church across the street had a message of hate, she set a goal of raising money to go towards a message of love and peace. So she painted a banner for the event reading, "Pink Lemonade for Peace: $1 Suggested Donation." She put the stand in the grass and waited. But the waiting didn't take long. Supporters came in by the droves and $1 turned into hundreds of dollars. During the day, Westboro sent representatives outside to try and find a way to stop the event. They apparently attempted to call the local police and stooped to yelling profanities when that didn't work, like calling a group of soldiers who rode out on their motorcycles to suport the event "bastards." Westboro's hate couldn't stop Jayden. She not only raised $400 during the day on Friday, but she has also collected over $1000 with an online campaign set up through Crowd Rise. Some people donated as little as $10 and as much as $230. One person gave $26, dedicating it to every person killed six months ago in the Newtown, Conn., massacre. "As we all know, the Westboro Baptist Church puts a lot of hate into the world," Jackson told HuffPost in an email Friday. "Since we cannot stop them, the next best thing is to smother it with love. That is what 5-year-old Jayden accomplished today! Jayden set up a lemonade stand in front of the church. Not only did she quench the thirst of a lot of loving supporters, the money she raised was donated to Planting Peace so she could help Planting Peace promote a more peaceful world." “Jayden represents the natural humanity we are born with," Davis Hammet, Director of Operations at Planting Peace, added. "We come into this world compassionate, caring beings and only become hateful if we are taught to be.â€
  11. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/05/2 ... 12712.html Apparently, coming out of the closet leads to tornados. Who knew? Seriously, though, I hate everything that comes out from that church. Blaming the death of dozens of people on Jason Collins coming out?!
  12. Westboro Baptist Church. The gift that keeps on giving. God Bless America and the freedom to practice one's spirituality and religion! No matter how corrupt and evil it is. PBS media coverage here. The fundamental Christian group urged the U.S. government to "reinstate" the death penalty for homosexuality and warned "violence will fully consume u [sic]" if that doesn't happen. Most of the church's tweets said same-sex marriage caused the bombing, but others mentioned abortion and supposed mistreatment of the church. A news release dated April 15 announced the church's intention to picket the funerals of the three bombing victims. The release says Massachusetts "invited this special wrath from God Almighty when it was the FIRST STATE to pass same-sex marriage" in 2004. Disturbing graphic Twitter here. Church pastor Fred Phelps: "God is busy punishing those who've mistreated His people for preaching." "Memo to Boston police: Is it time to re-think that mistreat and abuse WBC policy you implemented many years ago?!?!" The church also said that the death of 8-year-old Martin Richard was God's punishment. "His blood is on YOUR hands. Died for #SSM," tweeted church member Margie Phelps. ANONYMOUS promises retribution for Boston. Gotta love 'em for this. No photo, just Anonymous' Twitter text here. WBC Twitter here. Profanity, disturbing graphic. My barometer for monitoring potential religious oppression in the United States. As long as this CHURCH can do this, I can be sure that no one's religious rights have been infringed. Ironic how this wouldn't be tolerated for even a week in any other European country on the planet. This CHURCH would be responsible for its conduct and hate rhetoric. It certainly would not get faith-based non-profit subsidies and tax shelters.
  13. I just got a copy of it today and read about two chapters, I havn't reached the parts about her life inside the cult, yet. It is intersting so far. It is mostly detailing her father's personality at the start and you can see how he fell for that cult. Anyone read or intersted in reading it?
  14. I hadn't heard that more of Shirley Phelps-Roper's children had left the Westboro Baptist (not) Church (hardly), so if this is a repeat, I apologize and any mod may merge it. Part of SP-R's comments of record, as quoted in the HuffPo piece, amazes me for its candor: As I have always understood it from a mainstream Christian point of view, that is the work of Satan - to turn people from the saving grace of Jesus Christ. Kudos to SP-R for admitting as such, more kudos to NPR and especially to HuffPo for keeping it front-and-center in news about the incomprehensible group. source: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/02/0 ... 38436.html
  15. The Westboro Baptist Church is about to get a big surprise in the form of a new neighbor who plans to give the notoriously anti-gay group a taste of its own medicine. Aaron Jackson, one of the founders of Planting Peace, a multi-pronged charity that has in the past concentrated on rainforest conservation, opening orphanages and deworming programs, bought a house that sits directly across from the church's compound six months ago. On Tuesday, March 19, he and a team of volunteers are painting it to match the gay pride flag. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/03/19/westboro-equality-house-aaron-jackson-rainbow_n_2906337.html?ncid=edlinkusaolp00000009#slide=more286389

  17. It happened yesterday. She's promoting a book: http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/1 ... st_church/
  18. families in this Huffington post video, along with a gay teenager who left his Amish community. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/0 ... 41509.html I think this is wonderful, and I didn't know about the long-term rehabilitation centre for individuals leaving controlling and abusive families, cults, religions, etc. It's good to know that there is a safe place for someone like (Sarah Maxwell, et al.) to go if she ever escapes.
  19. https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petiti ... n=shorturl I didn't break the link, if I need to please let me know. Now, if only there was a way to declare the Pearls, and ATI anti-child hate groups....
  20. All I can say is that if there was ever a group that deserved the wrath of Anonymous it is these asshats.
  21. well we knew this was going to happen. the vultures are circling Show true godly love. http://www.examiner.com/article/connect ... -to-picket
  22. Not a fan of Russell Brand, but the video at http://www.towleroad.com/2012/11/brand.html showed a little bit of ... brain? on his part. He actually invited two members of the Westboro Baptist Church to his talk show. They presented him with a typical WBC protest sign, FAG PIMP BRAND, which Russell says that in England would simply mean he sells cigarettes. I was kinda hooked from there on in. Didn't watch the whole thing, though, since it became a little repetitious.
  23. we don't see violence too often against them but they sure pushed it too far. http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2012/10/15/s ... wd-cheers/
  24. http://gawker.com/5948086/a-westboro-ba ... -education He believes that public education is preparing students to be "liars, crooks, thieves, murderers, and perverts." He also believes "evolution is a satanic lie."
