“A woman who has rejected her family — infamous for its hateful fundamentalism — is interviewed on the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s “Freethought Matters” TV show this Sunday.
Megan Phelps-Roper is author of the book “Unfollow: A Memoir of Loving and Leaving the Westboro Baptist Church.” She bade goodbye to the church, founded by her grandfather Fred Phelps, in 2012 and now educates on topics related to extremism, religious extremism and how to communicate across ideological divides.
“I’d spent more than two decades of my life on this Earth, targeting people and antagonizing people, believing that it was the right thing to do — and believing that I was showing love to people in doing so,” she tells “Freethought Matters” co-hosts Dan Barker and Annie Laurie Gaylor about her “epiphany.” “Suddenly, it felt impossible to come to terms with the harm that we had wrought. It was like, and I’ve used this analogy before, like cradling a beautiful jewel in your hand, and then suddenly it turns to ash and dust, and realizing that you have dedicated your life to this thing.”

I’ve spent at least two hours trying to upload an MWF event I recorded on the fifteenth…
Microsoft sent through another mother fucking update [but no fix to WinBLOWS 10]…and, of course, it’s another wretched kick in the balls.
Twice over, my web browser kept freezing up, in a really super fucked up way…It wont come back, and my whole PC freezes…
I cant get the fucking file to upload to YouTube…
…and every goddamn time I have to reboot this piece of shit, it takes forever for me to even be able to access any mother fucking thing on the internet…This night has been shot, merely trying to get to the point where I can make this post, and vent my pure frustration.
I think Microsoft has been taken over by sadists…This is fucking bullshit.
Even my USB 3.0 flash drive is working more like a 2.0 or worse…What the fucking hell?!
Am I even going to be able to salvage my fucking files?!
I don’t know how long I can keep dealing with this…It’s been six mother fucking months!
I think I’m going to be forced to buy a new PC…and over my dead body, will it be another Windows PC…
…But it is so fucking soul crushing, not knowing what software I’m even going to be able to bring along with me…I have a huge fucking investment into so many things…and all the content I’m going to have to copy over [whatever I don’t fucking lose in the move…most of which I never figure out]
…all the software and files I’m going to have to download and install again…and all the accounts I’ll have to log into again…
…Fucking horse shit!…
This is Still my new mother fucking PC!
Incompetent Ass Holes!
What the fuck am I going to do?…I’m so pissed off.
I’m going to bed.
