(CNN) — An estranged son of anti-gay Kansas pastor Fred Phelps said Wednesday that the spiritual leader of Westboro Baptist Church hit his wife and beat his children with a mattock handle until they bled.

“I think what he does out there is evil,” said Nathan “Nate” Phelps, during an appearance on HLN’s “Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell.”

Nate Phelps is the seventh of the Westboro Baptist minister’s 13 children. The younger Phelps severed ties with his family on his 18th birthday and said he hasn’t had contact with his father in three decades. Nate Phelps is currently writing a book about his family.
