Coming hot off the heels of the death of his grandfather and Westboro Baptist Church founder, Fred Phelps, is the announcement that Zach Phelps-Roper has decided to follow in the footsteps of 3 of his 10 siblings by escaping the “Baptist Church” hate group. He’d actually escaped on February 20, nearly a month before Fred’s death on March 19, and admits that he’s still getting used to the real world as it is beyond Westboro’s walls. Still, though, remarkably, he’s said to the Topeka-Capital Journal that he has been “taken aback” by the kindness of gay individuals whom he’s met so far: “I met this guy at Olive Garden one night with my sister and he offered to pay for my entire dinner and I was so taken aback… I was like ‘I do not know what to say.’” He continued saying, "It was so funny because the very next day I saw him… I went out for a very moderate drinking [session] with my friends and family and … he just came up to me and just kindly got me one of these fruity kind of drinks that I like and he just said 'Here you go man,' and just walked off – he didn’t even expect a thank you." It’s stories like this that go to show that there’s hope for society yet, even in its darkest corners. Hopefully Zach’s other brothers and sisters will follow the example set by himself, Megan, Grace, and Nathan sooner than later! Keep Up With PopWrapped On The Web!
