“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.”
