Westboro Baptist Church plans to picket Elizabeth Edwards funeral just like the funeral of a soldier who died in Vietnam. The father of the dead soldier sued the church.
The Supreme Court ruled in that case that the church did not have a right to inflict hate speech on a private family gathering.
Now, the church, who opposes homosexuality and goes to funerals proclaiming hell for those who practice homosexuality, plans to protest at the funeral of the late Elizabeth Edwards, wife of John Edwards who died recently of breast cancer.
Elizabeth Edwards was not a homosexual, so it is not clear exactly why the hate group is trying to protest at her funeral.
