+ - The BBC Explains the Phelps Family

Submitted by yls07
yls07 (885856) writes "Remember the Fred Phelps clan? The ones who picket soldiers' funderals? The BBC calls them "the most hated family in America" — possibly true, and a good reason to wonder what keeps them ticking. An interview with documentarian Louis Theroux, who spent three weeks with them, elicits some observations that help us understand religion, group dynamics, and a piece of the strange milieu that is America. Too bad the streaming video will only be available in the United Kingdom."
