Damsel, Arise: A Westboro Scion Leaves Her Church

Long read just the beginning here check the link for the rest of the story:

Just after 11 last Sunday morning at Old First Reformed Church in Brooklyn, the Rev. Dr. Daniel Meeter is starting the Sunday service as he always does. He runs through the opening salutation and the collect for the day, and then he welcomes everyone to church as he always does, introducing Old First “as a community of Jesus in Park Slope where we welcome people of every race, ethnicity and orientation to love God and love our neighbors as ourselves.”

The congregation—some eighty strong on this sunny but cold February morning—is the usual mix of Park Slope churchgoing types: a smattering of journalists, a few artists, a handful of old ladies, some rambunctious children. But in the back row of the tin-ceilinged, wood-floored hall, there’s a visitor. It is Megan Phelps-Roper’s first time not only at Old First but also at any church not called Westboro Baptist. Yes, that Westboro Baptist, the Topeka, Kansas, congregation that has become famous (or infamous, depending on your viewpoint) for its strident views on sin (and the abundance of it in modern America), salvation (and the prospective lack of it), and sexuality (we’re bad, in far more colorful terms).

For nearly all of her twenty-seven years, Megan believed it: believed what her grandfather Fred Phelps preached from the pulpit; believed what her dad Brent and her mom Shirley taught during the family’s daily Bible studies; believed (mostly) what it said on those signs that have made Westboro disproportionately influential in American life—“God hates pillowbiters”; “God hates your idols”; “God hates America.”

Megan was the one who pioneered the use of social media at Westboro, becoming the first in her family to go on Twitter. Effervescent and effusive, she gave hundreds of interviews, charming journalists from all over the world. Organized and proactive, she, for a time, even had responsibility for keeping track of the congregation’s protest schedule. She was such a Westboro fixture that the Kansas City Star touted her—improbably, as it turns out, because a woman could never have such a role at the church—as a future leader of the congregation.

Then, in November, she left.

Stop being a douche. This isn't about liberals and it isn't about Obama.

I voted against Obama twice, so I am obviously neither a liberal nor an Obama fanboy. But idiocy such as what you are demonstrating in this thread gets tiresome.

So, you're good with lying now? I know plenty of liberals that are upset with various policies of the President and have been vocal about it. Hell, John Stewart takes shots at Obama.

are you really that simple minded dave(I know don't respond to that one), My views are very different from these dipshits. I'm sure you already knew that though.

Look at those people who took the time to read it, pretty highly recommended. Give it a try, I'm just a simple mind lad.

Hilarious. But seriously, back to reality here: Obama has an 87-10 (+77 for the math challenged) approval rating amongst Liberals. Who are the other 10%? I presume the 10% are those that are essentially communist. So yeah, the Left really takes on their High Priest don't they?



Put it this way: conservative approval is only 34-64 (-30). So by my math, the "mean nasty conservatives" who are "so hateful" towards Obama are far more divided in their opinion of him than his own flock of dutiful worshippers.

Good for her...hopefully she realizes that it is the Holy Spirit moving in her heart, and continues to grow in her faith, and not attribute/base it to/on her works.

God does hate, but not in the way that the twisted message she received growing up proclaims...
