Reviews

“The Most Hated Family in America” (2007) IMDb

Creators

Louis Theroux (writer).

Extent

Seen in 2018.

Subject

The Mosaic fidelity and moral behaviour of Westboro Baptist Church.

Commentary

Old man Phelps, while clearly a hateful and horrible person, is surprisingly uncharismatic for a fringe cult leader. Aside from the family aspect it isn’t clear what keeps the church together, and as usual, that is not Theroux’s subject.
