A former member of the Westboro Baptist Church--a fringe group based in Topeka, Kansas that pickets soldiers' funerals--apologized to the mother of a 21-year-old soldier killed in Afghanistan on a talk show Wednesday.
Libby Phelps Alvarez, the former Westboro member, apologized to Sherry and Randy Wyatt for picketing the funerals of fallen soldiers like their son on Anderson Live Wednesday. Alvarez is the granddaughter of Fred Phelps, the group's founder, and has recently left the group. (Other members of the shrinking group have recently publicly defected as well.)
"I just feel sad...and, I'm sorry," Alvarez said. "I thought I was doing the right thing...but I was just hurting people."

It seems to me that the grief that the parents felt at the time was so great that the asinine kooks seeking attention probably wouldn't make any difference to them.
And they probably aren't interested in whatever changes one of the kooks is going through.
No, a Satanic cult posing as a Baptist "fringe group".
It’s good to see the turn around in this girl and I thank God for it too. I pray the rest of the family changes as well.
Has she apologized to the Lord yet? Because He might want to talk to her about a few things she’s done in His Name....
I can’t believe they would pose with such disgusting people, what were the Phelps’ thinking?
I still think westboro is a mass suicide waiting to happen.
This proves God’s redeeming grace can touch and fix anyone.
That is true, also Saint Paul comes to mind
