Ex-member of the Westboro Baptist Church and professional hate monger Libby Phelps-Alvarez appeared on Anderson this morning to give an insider’s perspective on America’s most hated cult.
Phelps-Alvarez, the granddaughter of Westboro founder Fred Phelps left the church last month after dedicating 30 years of her life to shouting bigotry, perpetuating hate, and picketing the funerals of soldiers and children. She now plans on fighting for gay rights.
“In the moment, I thought I was doing the right thing,” she tells Anderson. “I thought the only way to love your neighbor was to tell them that their sins were taking them to hell.”
She also offered a tearful apology to the mother of a soldier whose funeral she picketed.
Are you buying her apology, or is this tear factory too little, too late?
