Biography

American social activist and autobiographer, a former member of the Westboro Baptist Church (WBC). She left the church with her sister Grace in November 2012. Her mother is Shirley Phelps-Roper, whose father was the church's founder Fred Phelps. Following her exit from the Westboro Baptist Church, she now lobbies to overcome divisions and hatred between religious and political divides.

Phelps-Roper is no longer a practising Christian, remarking on Twitter, "Jesus had some lovely ideas—but also others that aren’t so helpful. I don’t reject the good because of the bad, or accept the bad because of the good." She said she lost her faith: "Ultimately, it was looking at the texts themselves. I just don’t believe they’re divine."

In October 2019, Phelps-Roper released a book detailing her upbringing in the Westboro Baptist Church and her decision to leave her community and family behind, called Unfollow: A Journey from Hatred to Hope, leaving the Westboro Baptist Church.
