Westboro Baptist Church

Members of the Westboro Baptist Church, which is known for anti-homosexual protests at funerals, has announced on Thursday that they will picket Elizabeth Edwards‘ funeral on Saturday.

The anti-gay fundamentalist group, which is led by Rev. Fred Phelps, is most known for its protests at the funerals of military servicemen - though it has also picketed such events as theater productions and high school graduations.

In a statement released on the church's website -- the URL of which, www.godhatesfags.com, gives a pretty good sense of the group -- Westboro accused Edwards of "spewing blasphemy" and mounting a "smash-mouthed assault on His deity."

"Elizabeth Edwards & her faithless husband, John, lightly esteemed what they had. They coveted things that were not theirs - and presumptuously thought they could control God," the statement reads in part.

Edwards, an advocate of gay rights and same-sex marriage, died on Tuesday after a six-year battle with cancer.

According to the Washington Post, the Edenton Street United Methodist Church - which is hosting the services - said it was aware of the church's plan to protest but had not yet decided how to respond.
