Westboro Baptist Church’s Megan Phelps-Roper Defects: “Inflicting pain on others wasn’t the goal”

Megan Phelps Roper

Megan Phelps-Roper of the Westboro Baptist Chruch clan and perhaps best know recently for being Shirley Phelps Ropers second in command and  her hateful musical parodies mocking Lady Gaga and other pop stars has left the Westboro Baptist Church.

Megan writes on Medium:

“We know that we’ve done and said things that hurt people. Inflicting pain on others wasn’t the goal, but it was one of the outcomes. We wish it weren’t so, and regret that hurt. We know that we dearly love our family. They now consider us betrayers, and we are cut off from their lives, but we know they are well-intentioned. We will never not love them. We know that we can’t undo our whole lives. We can’t even say we’d want to if we could; we are who we are because of all the experiences that brought us to this point. What we can do is try to find a better way to live from here on. That’s our focus. Up until now, our names have been synonymous with “God Hates Fags.” Any twelve-year-old with a cell phone could find out what we did. We hope Ms. Kyle was right about the other part, too, though – that everything sticks – and that the changes we make in our lives will speak for themselves”

Megan I wish you luck on recovery and doing your penance.  But first you must start by being honest.

“Inflicting pain on others wasn’t the goal.” is a a bullshit cop-out.  I was EXACTLY the goal.  And until you owe up to it and make up for it there will be no forgiveness and no true repentance.

Below is a clip of Shirley and Megan Phelps-Roper media whoring on the Ricki Lake Show talking about gay teens.
