Nate Phelps in Calgary [Update]

Nate Phelps will be in Calgary to give a talk on Sunday March 14th from 2-4:30 pm.

Nate is the atheist son of Fred Phelps. Fred is the head of the Westboro Baptist Church (hate group).  You know that God hates Canada (NSFW, or children).

There is likely a group of people from Saskatoon going to Calgary for the talk.  Leave a comment if you are interested.

Nate Phelps: An Atheist looks back on growing up in Westboro Baptist Church

“The Uncomfortable Grayness of Life”

Sunday, March 14, 2010
2:00pm – 4:30pm
UofC ICT102
880 Campus Place NW
Calgary, AB

Nate Phelps is one of the estranged children of Pastor Fred Phelps of the Westboro Baptist Church. Since Pastor Phelps began his latest assault on various segments of the world in 1991, Nate has been providing his perspective on the dark (or perhaps darker) side of Pastor Phelps.

Centre For Inquiry has invited Nate to Calgary to share his insights with the Calgary community. Knowing how groups like Westboro Baptist work is not only fascinating, but helpful in countering their message.

Westboro Baptist is famous for their “God Hates Fags” campaign and protesting of high profile funerals. Though based in the United States, WBC still attempts to influence Canadians, but they have been blocked at the border while traveling to protest funerals in our country.

Cost: $5, or free with CFI membership.
