A US organisation, Recovering From Religion, has just issued a statement on behalf of Nathan Phelps, who, at the age of 18, escaped the clutches of the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas, and his abusive father who founded the “God Hates Gays” church.
This is Nathan Phelps’ statement in full:
Fred Phelps is now the past. The present and the future are for the living. Unfortunately, Fred’s ideas have not died with him, but live on, not just among the members of Westboro Baptist Church, but among the many communities and small minds that refuse to recognize the equality and humanity of our brothers and sisters on this small planet we share.
