GTA Event: CFI hosts Nate Phelps, June 18

Nate Phelps, estranged son of “God Hates Fags” Pastor Fred  Phelps, to Speak in Toronto. The event will take place at the University of Toronto Macleod Auditorium on Friday, June 18th at 7:30 pm.

The newly turned atheist and estranged son of "God Hates Fags" pastor Fred Phelps will speak about his experiences growing up in the Westboro Baptist church, the  most controversial family in the US. The Centre for Inquiry Canada (CFI) will host the event as Nate denounces the violent and discriminatory rhetoric of his family.

Nate will outline his family's anti-gay campaign and share his experiences growing up with the indoctrination and violence of his father. He will recount the journey since he left home at 18, from fundamentalism to mainstream Christianity to finally letting go of any notion of God.

This is an official Pride Toronto Affiliated Event.
