    It wasn"t until Libby Phelps was an adult, a twenty-five year old, that she escaped the Westboro Baptist Church. She is the granddaughter of its founder, Fred Phelps, and when she left, the church and its values were all she"d known. She didn"t tell her family she was leaving. It happened in just a few minutes; she ran into her house, grabbed a bag, and fled.
