Nate Phelps Predicted the Death of the Westboro Baptist Church, And They Didn’t Even Bother Protesting

On Sunday in Topeka, Nate Phelps, the telling-all son of the Westboro Baptist Church’s founder Fred, told an audience his prediction about how the church will eventually die out, but in the meantime we should all feel sympathy for its members, “at least for the young children stuck in that situation.” And he’s right; the kids out there on street corners waving around “God Hates Fags” signs don’t know any better, and are just doing as they are taught by their families. Nate’s visit to Topeka, meanwhile, was his first in twenty years. His father didn’t send anyone to picket. [AP]
