There are so many levels of fkery in this story that it’s hard to decide where to begin. The Westboro Baptist Church, notorious for spreading hate in the name of “God”, plans to send members to Elizabeth Edwards funeral, to do what exactly we don’t know.
In a promotional flier for the upcoming protest, the church references John and Elizabeth Edwards’s son Wade, who died in a car crash in 1996:
“When they were visited from the Most High God with the death of their 16-year-old son, they did not humble themselves before His mighty hand. They reared up in rage, decided they would show God who is boss, and meddled in matters of the womb, resulting in 2 more children — now motherless.”
The church goes on to claim that she is now a “resident of hell, where her rebellion and rage will take full flower.”
First off, how the hell do you boycott a FUNERAL!?!? Do you want her to un-die? Do you not want the people who loved her to mourn and get closure?
Peep the memo that these crazy muhfuggas wrote about their protest:
