From Westboro Baptist Church to The Jewlicious Festival, Refugees from Hate Speak

Last time these two women were at the Jewlicious Festival, it was in 2010 and they were picketing the Festival with signs and shirts that read  "Jews Killed Jesus", "Your Rabbi is a Whore" and "God Hates Fags"!

Last November Megan and Grace left behind the only life and family that they knew and quietly broke away from the Westboro Baptist Church, the most hated organization in the United states.

Their doubts with the church began with a conversation they had with David Abitbol at the Jewlicious Festival.

Find out about their amazing journey.
