“We know that we’ve done and said things that hurt people. Inflicting pain on others wasn’t the goal, but it was one of the outcomes. We wish it weren’t so, and regret that hurt.”
– Grace and Megan Phelps-Roper, granddaughters of Westboro Baptist Church founder Fred Phelps, in a statement announcing their departure from the church that’s best known for picketing soldier’s funerals and railing against homosexuality. They were quoted by The Washington Post.
