Elizabeth Edwards’ funeral to get unwanted visit from Westboro Baptist Church
The Westboro Baptist Church never lets an opportunity to grab headlines go by. So when Elizabeth Edwards died after a six-year battle with breast cancer, Fred Phelps‘ flock pounced, announcing that they’ll picket Edwards funeral.
Why exactly would they picket Edwards? Uh, if you can decode their flier tagged with Westboro’s copyrighted “God hates …Elizabeth Edwards” line, you’re a better person than me. But I’ll take a stab at it.
