These people need to have an " accident " is all I'm say'in......

Westboro Baptist Church, famous for protesting against gays and picketing at military funerals, has stated it plans to hold a protest at the public memorial of Elizabeth Edwards on Saturday. The service will be held at the Edenton Street United Methodist Church and begins at 1 p.m. in Raleigh, N.C.

USA Today reports the church plans on protesting for 90 minutes before the memorial starts. Edwards passed away Tuesday after a long battle with cancer in her home in Chapel Hill. Edwards was a supporter of gay marriage after a speech she gave in San Francisco in 2007.

Westboro continues to be in the news this year. Earlier in October a case before the United States Supreme Court heard oral arguments in favor and against free speech at a public funeral as to what should be appropriate.

In November, members of Westboro found their tires slashed when the protested at a funeral in Oklahoma for a dead soldier. When the church members couldn't find anyone who would repair their tires they were towed to the nearest Wal-Mart.

Westboro responded Dec. 2 saying there are "pretend worshippers" in Oklahoma and that there should be "woe unto Oklahoma." No one is sure if Westboro plans on returning to Oklahoma for more protests.

Elizabeth Edwards grew up a Methodist and often differed from her husband who was a southern Baptist on religious views. Westboro also claims Edwards thought she could control God which is another reason to protest at her funeral.

The Westboro Baptist Church website announces its picket locations beforehand so members know where to go should anyone wish to join them. A Facebook page has been created entitled "Protect Elizabeth Edwards funeral from Westboro Church" saying they would create a human wall to buffer funeral attendees from the protesters, according to WRAL.

The "Wall of Peace" has about 800 friends on Facebook so far agreeing to come out against Westboro at the funeral of Elizabeth Edwards. The Patriot Guard Riders may also be in attendance at the Edwards funeral as they have gone to military funerals before in order to shield families from the protesters at Westboro.

Hopefully, The Patriot Guard Riders will provide a sonic barrier for the funeral procession.

This makes me so angry!!! Idiots like this are the reason that people hate Christians who are truly trying to live the example Jesus set while here on Earth. He loved and accepted everyone, as we are supposed to. Unlike these religious fanatics with a few screws loose, he came to teach, love, comfort and save...... Ugh! I hope they all get arrested!!!!

She was a beautiful brave lady, may you Rest in Peace and may your family find comfort today despite the Westboro Jackasses!

These people are lunatics and cretins. I'd love to see a group of Hell's Angels show up the next time these whack jobs appear somewhere and properly motivate them. Oh well, one of the things we have to put up with to enjoy the freedoms that come with the First Ammendment. No different than having to put up with idiots in Nazi garb, or those spiffy white pointy hats, or Al Sharpton.

I get your point and I'm not an enormous fan of Al Sharpton, but I hardly think he deserves to be put in a basket with Nazis and Klanners.

Sorry Brendan, I respectfully disagree. The only difference between Al and the others is that he looks better in a suit.

Not much difference between them and the Islamo-zombie-death-cultists who believe the United States deserved what it got on 9/11.

Using someones sorrow and heartbreak as an opportunity to get their message of hate out in the name of what ... God? I believe in the First Ammendment and I also believe that people like this are scum. It's infuriating (and sad) knowing that they exercise these 1st ammendment rights under the guise of a tax exempt entity that doesn't support the government that gave them those rights and dishonors the men and women whose service keeps those rights intact.

I don't think sharpton ever burned a cross, lynched someone, or exterminated a group of 6 million people. thats a stupid statement.

I read the article in the link posted below and realized the Westboro people are going after Elizabeth Edwards because of what she said about her faith. Seems like those son of a bitches are all about freedom of speech for themselves but not for anyone else.

That would be a little too easy don't you think. Leprosy would be more "biblical"

The Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy about people like the Phelps in 2 Timothy.

2 Timothy, Chapter 3

1 You should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times.
2 For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred.
3 They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good.
4 They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God.
5 They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that!

9 But they won’t get away with this for long. Someday everyone will recognize what fools they are......

True Christians (and others whose faith is based on love, forgiveness and reconciliation) reject the vitriol of the Phelps. One day, the Phelps will have to face theior own judgment before God, and I'm sure they will have some explaining to do.
