Father And Son Have Different Missions In Life!

I grew up in a very religious home as well so I thought this article was worth sharing.

Unlike his Bible-thumping dad, Nate Phelps likes Lady Gaga’s music and feels sorry for Mel Gibson.

Phelps has also been hired as the executive director of the Alberta branch of the Centre for Inquiry (CFI) Canada.

CFI is an atheist charity that promotes “skeptical, secular, rational and humanistic enquiry.”

In recent months, Phelps, 51, garnered international attention after speaking out against his father’s hatred and intolerance messages and in support of gays.

Last May, Phelps spoke with Xtra about growing up in a Christian fundamentalist household.
