It’s safe to say that Nate Phelps, the son of the founder of the Westboro Baptist Church, does not share his father’s views on same-sex marriage.

Nate is the sixth of 13 children of Fred Phelps, the now deceased leader of the WBC – the infamous hate spewing, homophobic church which regularly pickets soldiers’ and celebrities’ funerals.

Nate actually fled the church in 1980 and has since become one of the most outspoken critics of the WBC and a campaigner for gay rights.

And, after the U.S Supreme Court legalised same-sex marriage across the nation, Nate had this inspiring message:

A special thank you to my family of birth for relentlessly and colourfully demonstrating the cruelty of anti-gay sentiment, thus driving decent people away from hatred and into the arms of justice and equality.

Nicely done, Nate!
