Megan Phelps-Roper, the granddaughter of Westboro Baptist Church's Fred Phelps, and her sister Grace have split from the anti-gay church known for picketing the funerals of deceased U.S. servicemembers and other events with signs that read “God Hates Fags” and “Fags Doom Nations.”

The announcement came via Medium.com, where Megan offered an explanation of how she came to disagree with her family's ministry and apologized for her past anti-gay statements and actions.
