Westboro Baptist Church to Protest Elizabeth Edwards Funeral

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.
