Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church will be dispatching members of its congregation to protest the funeral of Elizabeth Edwards this Saturday, CNN reports.
The church has generated controversy with its confrontational and offensive demonstrations. "God Hate Fags" has become an unofficial calling card of the group, a phrase they say the world "needs to hear more than it needs oxygen, water and bread." Another Westboro sign, "Thank God For Dead Soldiers," is frequently displayed at military funerals and has created its own share of outrage.
The church goes on to claim that she is now a "resident of hell, where her rebellion and rage will take full flower."
