Lauren Drain, daughter of Steve Drain, a Westboro Baptist church member featured in Hellbound?, is starting a fund to help those who have left or been kicked out of the Westboro Baptist Church. A brief snippet from her campaign site:
My name’s Lauren Danielle Drain and I’m one of several ex Westboro Baptist Church members that were forced to start a new life from scratch outside of the CULT. Some of us left by choice and others banished for questioning the doctrine. In both instances we’re forced to start life over after years of brainwashing, indoctrination and near isolation. When I was ostracized I was given a few hours to pack my life into a few suitcases, dropped off by my father at a motel and told to never return, never contact my siblings and that I was now disowned. Anyone that leaves or is kicked out is banished for life and all ties to your family, friends, community, life are severed and you are truly on your own.
Most of the cult is now made up of young children or those in their twenties. These are the people I plan to help, they were BORN into the cult or otherwise indoctrinated as children by their parents and their new community.
She’s a long ways from her $20,o00 goal, but perhaps you can help her reach it.
