Shirley Phelps-Roper admitted in an interview Monday that her father, the head of the Westboro Baptist Church, physically abused her and her siblings as a way to indoctrinate them to church dogma.

Phelps-Roper appeared on The David Pakman Show, talking about the group Anonymous, which is attempting to take down the online operations of the Westboro Baptist Church. During that interview, Pakman asked Phelps-Roper about claims made by her estranged brother Nathan Phelps, who said he and his siblings were abused as children.

According to a press release from the show, posted byPam's House Blend, Phelps-Roper said hitting children was part of "teaching children exactly like their creator told them to do it."
