Nate Phelps- Henry H. Zumach Freedom From Religious Fundamentalism Award

A westboro baptist church rally-goer holding up offensive signsNate Phelps is the 2020 recipient of FFRF’s Henry Zumach Freedom From Religious Fundamentalism Award for his years of speaking out publicly for freethought and humanism as the son of Fred Phelps. Nate has received $10,000, thanks to FFRF Member Henry Zumach, who has so generously set up this annual award to reward individuals who are making a difference in fighting religious fundamentalism. Since the 2020 national convention had to be canceled  due to COVID-19, instead of delivering this speech in person, Nate submitted a moving article about leaving the Westboro Baptist Church, founded by his father Fred Phelps, known for its inflammatory hate speech.
