Elizabeth Edwards’ funeral will be held in Raleigh, N.C. on Saturday, where she will be laid to rest next to her son, Wade Edwards. At a time when Elizabeth Edwards’ family should be granted respect to grieve the loss of their mother and friend, Westboro Baptist Church plans on protesting Elizabeth Edwards’ funeral by picketing near where the funeral will take place.
One question: What in the world is wrong with these people and how can they call themselves Christians?
They are monsters…pure and simple.
I will not stoop so low as to quote the statement that they made regarding Elizabeth Edwards’ funeral, but you can read it here if you so choose. Be prepared to be appalled and completely disgusted.
No matter how you feel about another person or their beliefs, a funeral deserves a certain level of respect and privacy out of compassion for the family of the deceased. The fact that this “church”, if you can even call it that, would protest Elizabeth Edwards’ funeral is one of the most hateful and malicious things I have ever heard.
