    Westboro church to picket at Edwards' funeral - USATODAY.com

    Westboro Baptist Church, known for its protests at servicemembers' funerals, plans to protest for 90 minutes until the service begins. The protests typically speak out against homosexuality. Westboro's announcement of the picket also claims that God hates Edwards and that she is dead because she thought she could control God.

    Again, they are doing this for the media attention, Fred Phelps knows this one will be a doozie. The best thing would have been for USA today, and other media outlets to ignore this. Of course, we are now going to talk about it here on this message board, but we are just a handful of people. If nobody reported about these idiots, they would eventually go away.


    Did you see this?

    The bible has a lot more impressive things to say about bearing false witness and blasphemy than it does about homosexuality.

    One of these days Gd will deal with Westboro with a few well directed bolts of lightning. That will get folks attention to what the message actually is.

    Didn't the Supreme court already ponder this matter? What's changed? It's a celebrity now being defiled?

    That is Why I am going with cremation.

    Come on and protest my "funeral"! In fact, I invite you into where my body is laying--after it begins to smoke!! No liquids please!

    She thought she could control God? From what I have heard her say it seems like she realized she couldn't. These people make pond scum look good.
