Louis Theroux: The Most Hated Family in America

Louis Theroux struggles to come to terms with the infamous Phelps family from Topeka, Kansas who picket the funerals of dead soldiers killed in Iraq as a protest against an America that tolerates homosexuality. As representatives of the Westboro Baptist Church, founded by Fred Phelps, the family members - some as young as 6 years old - wave slogans with messages such as 'God Hates Fags', 'Thank God for 9/11' and 'God Hates You' at pickets all over the States. The last documentary film maker to enter their world was so enamoured by The Phelps he joined their ranks. So what does the future hold for Louis as he meets America's Most Hated Family?
