In an interesting twist considering the church’s loud antipathy against homosexuals, it’s been suggested by Laura Drain, former and excommunicated member, that Westboro Baptist Church founder, Fred Phelps, may be gay.
Drain is currently doing interviews for her new book, Banished, a Memoir: Surviving My Years in the Westboro Baptist Church, and when an interviewer from The Advocate asked her about Phelps’ extreme anti-gay attitudes, she said she’d heard he had an experience as a young man which might have been the seed of his gay-hate.
David reads part of the interview in which she speaks to witnessing Phelps’ over-reaction anytime anyone would ask about his extreme views on homosexuality, a reaction much larger than to any other question, which led her to believe he might have something behind his hate to hide.
