For nearly all of her twenty-seven years, Meganbelieved it:believed what her grandfather Fred Phelps preached from the pulpit; believed what her dad Brent and her mom Shirley taught duringthe familys daily Biblestudies; believed (mostly) what it said on those signs that have made Westboro disproportionately influential in American lifeGod hates fags; God hates your idols; God hates America.
Megan was the one who pioneered the use of social media at Westboro, becoming the first in her family togo onTwitter. Effervescent andeffusive, she gave hundreds of interviews, charmingjournalists from all over the world. Organized and proactive, she, for a time, evenhad responsibilityfor keepingtrack of the congregations protest schedule. She was such a Westborofixture that the Kansas City Star toutedherimprobably, as it turns out, because awoman could never have such a roleat the churchas afuture leader of the congregation.
Then, in November, she left.

Very insightful, thanks. Sure sounds like the typical cult mentality.
One of these days, I predict, WBC is going to piss off someone who has nothing left to lose and that will be the end of Phelps and his ilk. I'm surprised it hasn't happened already.
Phelps and Westboro Cult still get cover from Liberals and Dems. Until that cover is broken...they will keep getting protection
Why haven’t the HomoRights Groups protested their “God Hates Fags” signage and slogans...when the HomoRights go all ballistic if you want to prevent Gay Marraige?
It is often said that the Devil looks after his own.
If this is true, then fred phelps and his demonic minions will be around long after those they choose to torment are dead and gone.
The Westboro bunch is anything but stupid. I’ll give this woman the benefit of a doubt but I’d keep her at arms length for a couple of years till she clearly proves herself.
There are very few members of this ‘church’ anyway, despite their coverage by the MSM. Losing two is a big blow!
this "unscaling" of the eyes always amazes me when it happens...
But the best thing anyone can do is ignore the Phelps clan. They only want attention and for someone to trample their rights to be a$$hats so they can file a lawsuit.
She is still nuts, she moved to Brooklyn!
She’ll continue to vote Democrat (note the feminist spin in the article). Thanks ExxonPatrolUs.
