A second Phelps brother estranged from Westboro Baptist Church confirmed Sunday morning that Fred Waldron Phelps Sr. is in poor health and has been excommunicated from the church.

"Just a quick note to assure you the information you wrote and published this morning is accurate," Mark Phelps emailed to The Topeka Capital-Journal at 10:30 a.m.

"I do not know anything more than you know, at this time, but what you wrote I know to be true, personally, just as Nathan (Phelps, a brother of Mark Phelps) knows to be true also."

A spokesman for Westboro Baptist Church confirmed Sunday that Pastor Fred Waldron Phelps Sr. is a patient in the Midland Care Hospice in Topeka.
