God hates fags If you know one thing about Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka Kansas it s that this slogan plastered their signs and was part of their armory of in your face chants at nationwide protests Megan Phelps Roper grew up in the Church which was founded by her grandfather Fred Phelps and made up mostly of her extended family Phelps had 13 children and Phelps Roper is one of 11 In 1989 Phelps learned that nearby Gage Park was a gay cruising spot and wrote in disgust to the mayor and other city officials In a sense he never got over it The anti homosexuality message would become Westboro s trademark at least until the church started its picketing of military funerals after the Ira War which like 911 was interpreted as being God s just punishment of American immoralityBy portraying it from the inside and recreating her shifting perspective from early childhood onwards Phelps Roper initially makes her extreme upbringing seem perfectly normal After all it s the only thing she knew and it never would have occurred to her that her family could be wrong The Phelpses were fiercely intelligent and also ran a law firm so it s impossible to just dismiss them as redneck idiots Freuent passages from the King James Bible appear in italics to echo the justifications the Church turned to for its beliefs and actionsOnly gradually did doubts start to creep in for the author as various uncles and brothers left the church Phelps Roper was even the voice of Westboro on Twitter but defending funeral protests became increasingly difficult for her Two things brought her to a breaking point First in something of a coup the Church appointed a new body of elders all male of course who instituted ever draconian rules such as a dress code for women and effectively removed her mother from leadership Ultimately they would kick a dying Fred Phelps himself out of the church Secondly the Church started to spread fake news via doctored photos For example they claimed to be protesting a royal wedding in London when in fact Westboro members never go where the First Amendment can t protect themAll along Phelps Roper had been corresponding with CG an online acuaintance with whom she played Words with Friends Chad gently encouraged her to ask why Westboro believed as it did and to unpick rather than ignore any doctrines that didn t make sense What if we re wrong What if this isn t The Place led by God Himself What if we re just people she wondered In November 2012 she and her sister Grace left the Church and the family home where she d lived until age 26 and retreated to a Deadwood South Dakota Airbnb to hike read and think about what they d left behind and what came next I d just about had enough of Westboro and its infighting by that point in the book the chapter about her leaving gets a little melodramatic so like the author I was glad to move on to another setting and this interlude ended up being my favorite sectionThere s much I could say about this memoir as the path out of fundamentalism is one I ve taken too and the process of rebuilding a life outside it is ongoing for me as it is for Phelps Roper who now lobbies for empathy across religious and political lines The sense of a family divided is reminiscent of Tara Westover s Educated whose readership Unfollow is keen to secure At points the book feels overlong the chapters certainly are but the good news for anyone who might feel reluctant to tackle it is that a film version is in the works with a screenplay by Nick Hornby and Reese Witherspoon producingNote Westboro was the subject of a Louis Theroux documentary in 2006 and in a nice full circle moment he s now interviewing Phelps Roper on some of her UK book tour spots And in another lovely aside she married CGOriginally published with images on my blog Bookish Beck
