Nathan Phelps: Escaping Westboro Baptist Church
Hey guys,

I just listened to the most recent podcast when TAA interviewed Nathan Phelps. I must say, I did not grow up in the WBC, but a lot of what the WBC I use to believe when I was a fundamentalist Christian.

I am glad to be gay and am glad to finally be an atheist. The abuse when I was a Christian was enormous. I had a fear of hell and was not directly and physically absued by my parents (don't get me wrong, I love them and I am not estranged from them), but the religion has caused me a lot of emotional harm.

One of the Phelps/WBC girls also cut her ties with them, 1 or 2 years ago. They kept harrassing her. Probably still do if she hasn't caved. So she, and this Nathan need all the help they can get.

Yeah, I can imagine. I can''t imagine what they had to go through -- what I had to go through was nothing compared to what they are going through. I wish the government could shut them down, but I know they can't.
