The Shocking Story of Pastor Fred Phelps, The Westboro Baptist Church, Those Who Oppose It, and Those Who Choose To Leave It All Behind.

With the recitation of three provocative words - "God hates fags" - Reverend Fred Phelps ignited a firestorm of controversy in sleepy Topeka, Kansas, a maelstrom that has continued with his aggressively polarizing rhetoric on such heated issues as homosexuality and the war in Iraq.

This penetrating and thought-provoking documentary follows Phelps' transformation from an award-winning civil rights attorney to an incendiary preacher whose extreme interpretations of Bible scriptures have reached millions around the globe. Rev. Phelps issued his first sermon 50 years ago at Westboro Baptist Church, where his congregation was - and still is - largely comprised of his own family. Since then, the group has staged over 22,000 picket demonstrations at locations ranging from college campuses to funerals for American soldiers, enraging many with slogans such as "Thank God for 9/11" and "You're going to hell."

Replete with shocking interviews and rare Phelps footage, Fall From Grace paints a powerful portrait of hatred in America, one that forces viewers to reexamine the quintessentially American right of free speech.
