Meanwhile, on the Damascus Road…

Megan Phelps-Roper, 27, and her sister Grace are remarkably brave young women. They have walked away from the Westboro Baptist Church (which also meant walking away from their families and the only lives they’ve ever known) and are trying to sort out what it means to be in the world they once condemned hatefully and stridently, and trying to understand what they now believe — and don’t believe.

Jeff Chu has an interview with Megan, and the sisters have a statement of their own as well. If you pray, it wouldn’t be bad to keep them in mind.
