Birthday: January 31, 1986 (Aquarius)
Born In: Topeka, Kansas, United States
Megan Phelps-Roper is an American writer and activist who is a former member of the Westboro Baptist Church, an extremist congregation that is particularly homophobic and anti-Semitic. She was previously the spokesperson of the church, which was founded by her grandfather and infamous religious zealot, Fred Phelps, in 1955. She participated in pickets opposing the LGBT community, Jews, the military, among others. However, her communications with people on Twitter, such as David Abitbol, founder of the blog 'Jewlicious', Chad Fjelland, who later became her husband, and film-maker and actor Kevin Smith, convinced her to leave the church in 2012. Since then, she has presented a TED talk in 2017, appeared on several television and radio shows, and has published her memoir, 'Unfollow: A Journey from Hatred to Hope, leaving the Westboro Baptist Church', in October 2019. She is not a practicing Christian anymore.
