Bilerico is reporting on a video interview with Nate Phelps, one of Phelps’ 13 children and one of the few to escape from the cult. He speaks about what life was like living in his father’s compound in Kansas, where he was beaten, starved, and psychologically tortured by his father.

The sad thing is that, contrary to what Bilerico reports, this isn’t the first time he’s spoken out. As long ago as 1994, Nate and Mark Phelps spoke to a reporter about the physical and emotional abuse their father inflicted on them. Sadly, the paper the reporter was writing for refused to run the article. Happily, the reporter sued to get paid for his work, and his article ended up as Exhibit A – now a public document.
