You’ll Want to Support This Documentary About a Former Westboro Baptist Church Member

Nate Phelps is one of the children of Fred Phelps, the infamous founder of Westboro Baptist Church who died earlier this year. Unlike his father with his “God Hates Fags” signs, Phelps is now a strong supporter of LGBT rights. After his father’s death, he beautifully wrote, “I will mourn his passing, not for the man he was, but for the man he could have been.”

Brad Johnson, Jason Badgett, and Terrie Johnson are filmmakers who want to share Nate’s story with the world — and if the trailer for their upcoming documentary is any indication, the full movie will be incredible.

It’s called Not My Father’s Son:

Nate writes of the project:

When I watched the trailer they’ve created for “Not My Father’s Son,” I was reminded again… they get it. I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with them and the remarkable team they have assembled to get this message out… the cure for bigotry of the brain is to inoculate the heart with loving connections.

The filmmakers didn’t ask me to post this, but how could you not want to support the endeavor? Talk about a riveting story…

Check out their Kickstarter and chip in if you can.
