I actually haven't written about Westboro Baptist in quite some time, as I find the "church" pretty darn boring these days. The only compelling story of recent involves the growing number of young members (Megan, Libby, Grace, Sara, Lauren, Josh, etc.) who have left Phelps way of life in order to seize dreams that don't involve protesting funerals or recording mean-spirited pop parodies. That's been fascinating to watch, and I've truly enjoyed talking to some of these former members. Their insights tend to confirm my suspicions.
