Unfortunately, the hatemongers of Westboro Baptist Church have decided to picket the Sueppel family’s funeral. You’ve probably heard of them. Apparently protesting at events that honor gays and lesbians– even soldiers’ funerals — has become passe for Fred Phelps and his sheep.
See the church’s flier advertising the picket here. I’ll warn you right now, it’s disgusting. But it’s typical of their asinine propaganda.
I went to talk to some of the picketers from the Topeka, Kan., church when I was a junior at Iowa State. You can read my column about the experience here.
I’m not going to waste any more space in my blog on these morons.
UPDATE: They decided not to show. Good for them.
