    pretty small -- mostly Phelps' offspring and their families. And it's getting smaller as the younger generation wakes up and leaves, often with difficulty because it really is a family. (A notable departure recently was Megan Phelps-Roper, daughter of Shirley and rumored to be the one being groomed to take over once the older generation passed; she was the group's "social media" expert.)

    As for the money, comes for the most part from lawsuits; they go protest, someone takes offense and it leads to physical violence, then they sue and win.
