It’s good to be back
Huge thanks to Paul Fidalgo for taking care of this site so I could go off the grid for a few days.
Turns out there was news of a big wedding while I was away: Lauren Drain, a former member of Westboro Baptist Church, was married early last month, something we found out about after she posted pictures of the ceremony on Reddit.
While her “God Hates Fags” church members weren’t there to support her (or, thankfully, protest), two of her “church sisters” who also escaped the cult were.
Check out this picture and try not to smile:
‘It was amazing having them by my side. Just a year ago I never thought i would see them again and here they were, during one of the most impotent days of my life,’ she told Mail Online.
‘They stepped in to make it even more special for me. We are extremely close now, and see each other as often as we can.’
While Drain is still a Christian, her husband “is not religious.” They say there’s mutual respect there, though, so hopefully it’s not problematic.
