    Megan Phelps-Roper and her younger sister, Grace, left Westboro Baptist Church last year, joining other former members in a life no longer consumed by inflammatory anti-gay demonstrations and praying for people to die.

    On Wednesday, the granddaughters of Westboro founder and pastor Fred Phelps Sr. made their decision public for the first time. In an online statement, they expressed regret for their past actions, but also admitted that it was difficult to leave the only life they had ever known behind.

    "We know that we’ve done and said things that hurt people," read the post, signed by both sisters. "Inflicting pain on others wasn’t the goal, but it was one of the outcomes. We wish it weren’t so, and regret that hurt."

    Something tells me that the loss of these family members will do absolutely nothing to deter Shirley and her father. In fact, they've probably excommunicated the kids.

    They're batshit crazy.

    i saw one of the kids being interviewed on news 4. shes now married to a very nice guy and has a normal life. she basically said she was a prisoner. i believe it. just like the neo nazi's raising their lil haters from birth. she said her family now declares her dead.

    A couple of the daughters were actually attractive, and would be considered kinda hot if they actually worked at it. Glad to see they're being freed to go whore it up, would've been such a waste. The documentary about that cult is fascinating, but the parts with the kids was just plain sad, I don't see how you overcome that sort of brainwashing from birth.

    It's hard to tell who is more filled with hate, rage, intolerance and stupidity. The militant homosexuals or members of WBC. They are like mirror images of each other.

    the only way for them to pay penance is to dike it out with each other. video proof will be needed.

    Hmmm. Let's suppose I'll concede, as part of your argument, that we are militant.

    How did we get that way? :bigthink
