“Banished” author and former Westboro Baptist Church member, Lauren Drain, appeared on Piers Morgan Tonight on Monday.
In a revealing interview, Drain spoke of the Westboro Baptist Church which is well-known for its anti-gay messages and protests at funeral services for fallen soldiers. In the interview, Drain revealed th tight control the Westboro Baptist Church maintains over its members:
“It’s very controlling,” said Drain, regarding her experience as a church member. “They control what you believe, what you say, what you do, what friends you have. They say everyone on the outside’s evil. And they don’t allow any outside influence at all.”
