The most hated family in America

Colm Flynn asks a senior church member why Fred Phelps, the church’s founder and lead pastor for many years, was excommunicated on his deathbed.

Colm Flynn talks to Westboro Baptist Church member Jeal Phelps about their justification for celebrating Sept. 11th.


The Westboro Baptist Church is a small but very loud church located in the city of Topeka, Kansas. They have become infamous worldwide for their anti-homosexual agenda and the picketing of US soldier’s funerals. As part of a documentary about one family member’s journey leaving the church, Colm Flynn traveled to Topeka to meet the family to talk to them about their beliefs.
