This is just bizarre. And so wrong.
Westboro Baptist Church announced that they will picket the funeral of Elizabeth Edwards on Saturday.
That one has a First Amendment right does not mean the common sense button gets pushed off.
Why the anti-gay zealots from Westboro Baptist Church, out of Topeka, Kansas want to make a mess of the funeral for Elizabeth Edwards is a mystery. But then when it comes to this group of genetically deformed misfits there is no logic to any of their antics.
That the huffing and puffing from the Westboro Baptist Church might not even be noticed due to a counter-movement at the funeral is the reason this post goes up tonight.
In the meantime, Raleigh residents are organizing their own protective measures, with at least two counterprotests planned to put a human buffer between Westboro Baptist picketers and the mourners. “Regardless of your politics, it’s just downright rude to bring a protest of this sort to disrupt the mourning process,” a group called Line of Love wrote on its Facebook page to organize volunteers.
