A Phelp’s No More or Megan Comes Out

February 10, 2013 Scooped By: Andre [No Comments]

It’s not much of a secret the the infamous Phelp’s family helped inspire the clan in Red State but perhaps even more surprising than twists in that film come this story torn from the headlines:

Westboro Baptist Church family member denounces parish, flees
It was a different kind of coming-out moment for two members of the Westboro Baptist Church. In a blog post published Wednesday, Megan Phelps-Roper and her younger sister Grace announced their exodus from the Westboro Baptist Church, a Kansas-based parish made infamous by its “God hates fags” campaign. “We know that we’ve done and said things that hurt people. Inflicting pain on others wasn’t the goal, but it was one of the outcomes,” wrote Megan Phelps-Roper. “What we can do is try to find a better way to live from here on. That’s our focus.”

Kevin took to the Twitter and Youtube commenting in Sloppy Seconds Episode #4. Listen how he explains how this is like Vader tossing the Emperor over the Death Star ledge or when Venom became a good, none head-eater, guy:
