Twin Towers Attack Was ‘Sign of God’

Four years ago, Megan Phelps-Roper, 30, (l) and her sister Grace, 23, left the infamous Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas and its crusade of hate against Jews, the LGBT community, members of the military and others. Tonight they told a Westport Country Playhouse audience why. In her opening remarks, Megan said: “[On 9/11] someone in school told me ’two planes just hit the twin towers’ and I said ’that’s great.’ I saw it as a sign from God.” Later, she said her mission now is to show that people can change and really have compassion for even the most bigoted of people. The sisters, who spoke earlier today at Harvard University, are on an ADL-sponsored speaking tour. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Jaime Bairaktaris for WestportNow.com
