Westboro Church Strikes Again, Will Picket Joe Paterno’s Funeral
Westboro Baptist Church can’t seem to let anyone have a funeral anymore. When they protest funerals, it isn’t the deceased who are hurt. It’s the people who are mourning.
Margie Phelps is the daughter of Westboro pastor Fred Phelps, and she made it official on Twitter on Sunday that Westboro will be picketing the funeral of former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno, who died Sunday at age 85 from lung cancer.
There was a lot of controversy involving Paterno recently, and everyone has a right to their own opinion. But, it just isn’t right to picket a funeral.
And in case you didn’t know, Westboro’s website name is www.godhatesfags.com.
