Quotes

Louis Theroux: [attending a picket with the church at a funeral] I mean, I've only been out here 25 minutes or so, but so far the reaction has been, I'd say, a 100% negative. Would you agree?
Bekah Phelps-Roper: Uh huh. Yeah, I would agree.
Louis Theroux: Do you think maybe there's another way of delivering the message, maybe like a letter of consolation to the family of the soldier?
Bekah Phelps-Roper: Oh, we send letters all the time, but not consolations.
[dictating]
Bekah Phelps-Roper: "You anger the Lord, your God and now he's cursed your family." There's no consolation there. ...

Oh My Lord
5 December 2012 | by (California) – See all my reviews

The Phelps family protested across the street from my daughter's high school and the students responded with hundreds of kids on the other side of the street. The Phelps family was restricted by police, the students were respectful and didn't engage in name calling or violence and it all dissipated in the news. This was three years before I saw this documentary. I had been aware of the Phelps family for 15 years before that but this documentary really brought their lunacy front and center. "What's Wrong With Kansas" -- Indeed. These people, and many more like them in the Midwest (my roots) are what is wrong with America. I don't doubt for an instant that they believe in the purity of their cause. But they are dead wrong. From a religious standpoint, an ethical position, a moral position, and a political position. These people and their supporters are what is making America a laughingstock to the rest of the world. I pity them.
