This is FANTASTIC news to wake up to. The main thing now, is for those who come into contact with these two recently liberated individuals give them
the chance, that they have earned by leaving Westboro, to be forgiven for the damage they have contributed to, during thier time there.
The WBC has been responsible for many moral outrages, this we know. But we have to understand that this near cult, and even worse, the family that
runs the church there, use all the psychological tools in the bag, to ensure that thier members remain part of its cancerous body. By constant
concentration on the negative effects of life outside thier circle, and by treating those outside it with scorn and hate, the church makes plain to
those within what treatment they can expect from its members should they leave. Furthermore, because there are families in this church, one part of a
given family is unlikely to leave, lest they risk thier relationship with thier nearest and dearest, and I have no doubt that family is taken VERY
seriously by church leadership, because it makes it easier to control large numbers of people.
I have enormous respect for those who have pulled themselves from the pit that the WBC represents, and I hope and pray that those who come into
contact with those who have escaped, treat the liberated with dignity and love. Finding love and support outside of the WBC will be important for
thier mental and spiritual health, but also it will embolden those still within that horrid organisation, to leave in the knowledge that they will
find people prepared to help them. Members within the church should remember the story of the good Samaritan, and not fear to leave purely on the
basis that they will be alone.
Love being central to the belief of any genuine believer in Christ, it is the only tool by which people in the WBC might be levered from that
spiritual cleft in the rock. My prayers are with the liberated, and for the souls of those who remain ensnared.
