Church Plans Protest At Elizabeth Edwards' Funeral

A church infamous for picketing at military funerals, saying the government supports a homosexual agenda, is bringing its members to the funeral of Elizabeth Edwards.

A press release titled "God Hates Elizabeth Edwards" on the church's website details their plans and reasons for the protest Saturday.

A public memorial service is planned for Saturday at 1 p.m. at Edenton Street United Methodist Church in Raleigh.

Westboro Baptist Church is based in Topeka, Kansas. It has made headlines for protesting outside military funerals. A handful of church members protested at a vigil for slain Camp Lejeune Marine Maria Lauterbach in 2008.
