Megan Phelps-Roper of Westboro Baptist Church: An heir to hate
Kansas City Star ^ | 11/20/2011 | Dugan Arnett

Posted on 11/20/2011 5:08:56 PM PST by SoJoCo

In an ordinary town, in a quiet neighborhood, in a beige two-story house, a girl named Megan lives with her parents and eight siblings.

She is 25, with a cheeky smile. Tall and tan and athletic, she has long, curly hair that tumbles down her shoulders in thick locks. Her voice is bubbly, with a pinch of country twang, and when she is talking about something she likes, she leans forward in her seat and says “Ohmygosh!” before unleashing a stream of syllables that come pouring out on top of each other. She is polite. If you were to stop by the house some afternoon, she would probably ask if you wanted to stay for pizza that night.

She loves her iPhone and the band Mumford & Sons and the Showtime series “Dexter,” which is about a blood-splatter specialist for the Miami Metro Police Department who also happens to be a serial killer — a complex character both good and evil. She went to high school at Topeka West and got straight A’s. She went to college at Washburn University and got straight A’s. She thought about going to law school, sat down to write her admissions essay and decided she wasn’t all that keen on becoming a lawyer. So she joined the family business.

She is peppy, goofy and, by all accounts, happy.

Oh, and one other thing about Megan: She wants to make it perfectly clear that you and the rest of this filthy, perverted nation will be spending a long, fiery eternity burning in hell.

I grew up in the South, as a Southern Baptist, so I used to hearing how I’m going to burn in hell. It doesn’t phase me in the least, and if it bothers anyone else they should probably get a hobby.

A family of deeply disturbed nutcases. Every one hates them and they have made no converts.

I really wish they wouldn’t call themselves Baptists. It gives us all a bad name. Most Baptist churches aren’t anything like Westboro.

Sounds like the KC Star hates God’s word rather intensely.

Megan is largely correct. The US is in deep doo-doo spiritually.

These folks preach hate and not the love of God.

True religion aims to not to scare us but to teach us to become something more than ourselves and to serve others and to serve God and to live a life that is an example to those around us.

How many member of the church are not members of the clan? Time will catch up to them in short order.

I truly feel sorry for her, she has no life and has never experienced any other life.............

Since she could walk, Megan was taught that the world beyond the family’s backyard was an inherently evil place.

She has no real friends. Few acquaintances

I don't know if it's legal or not but she needs to be kidnapped and "deprogrammed" like we read about years ago of people caught up in cults........

I can’t see how what Fred Phelps has done to children is any better than what Jerry Sandusky has allegedly done.

It’s Westboro that hates God’s word.

Its an in-bred family cult. They’re the spawn of all that’s wrong with the world.

That "church" has nothing to do with God. As a freeper, you can't really be that obtuse about the Westboro creeps, can you?

The KC Star is no doubt a leftwing, anti-Christian rag, but they cannot defile the Word of God as the Phelps family has done by taking His Word and His Name in vain. Their bastardization of Scripture and audacity in calling their blood family a “Church” of any denomination to achieve their money grubbing and publicity seeking goals is nothing any Christian should defend.

The cultural and spiritual condition of the US is not advanced in any meaningful way, not one iota, by the Phelps tribe and their “Westboro Baptist Church.”

This Westboro group is as far removed from Christianity as the Nazis are from American style conservatism.

They advance the anti-Christ leftist agenda and do the work of God’s enemy.

Megan’s testimony, as the paper exposed it is pure Bible.

I’m going only by what was in the article.

If you condemn what Megan is said to have stated, you condemn God’s word.

I wasn’t there, just taking the article as written.

When old man Phelps kicks it, I wonder if they’ll picket themselves.

Someday this bunch of loons is going to piss off the wrong grieving father of some poor kid who gave his life following the orders of his nation and he is going to mow them down like a scythe through new hay.

This is not a REAL CHURCH

It is a group of Obama supporters trying to ACT like a church, in order to give real churches a bad name.

Everything they do makes NO SENSE AT ALL except when viewed in that context.

FOLLOW THE MONEY

The leader was/is a high paid dem operative

If these people were real they would be protesting HOLLYWOOD and their never ending promotion of the homosexual agenda, not military funerals.

THEY ARE A FRONT GROUP trying to make churches look bad.

Certainly not. Even Satan quotes Scripture, in his temptation of Jesus in Luke 4.

Hate is hate. The leftists at Westboro Baptist Church preach it in spades.

The leader is six kinds of senile and they make their money from the family law firm, Phelps Chartered.

You need to put the article into context of who was speaking the words. She's the freak who is condemning God's word.
