Westboro Baptist Church to Protest Joe Paterno Funeral

The Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas, notorious for its anti-gay and funeral picketing, plans to picket Joe Paterno’s funeral.

Margie Phelps (pictured), the wife of church leader Fred Phelps, sent several tweets Sunday making her stance on Paterno quite clear:

Keep in mind this is the same woman who calls President Barack Obama the “Antichrist” and the same group that picketed the funeral of Michael Jackson and Steve Jobs. Some states have enacted laws preventing protests at funerals, but the Supreme Court ruled that they have the right to protest at funerals.
