Yep, everybody’s favorite hate-mongers, Fred Phelps and Co., will be seen tonight on Showtime.
The documentary “Fall From Grace” is really, really interesting. I saw it when it aired here in Topeka, after debuting in Lawrence, Kansas. It was also seen at a film and music festival in Austin Texas. Now it looks as if it will be getting a wider audience.
When I saw it in Topeka it was at a special showing, with the young filmmaker present afterwards to answer questions. I urge folks to watch, even if the subject is oogy. Sad to see young kids parroting the hatred and bigotry of their parents. Jones was granted access to the family compound, and had a personal interview with ol’ Phred himself.
The article mentions that there will be a DVD coming from Netflix. I plan on buying it if it does actually make it.
It won’t be a fun show, but it is a worm’s eye view of how the Phelps clan operates.
