Westboro Baptist Church to Protest Elizabeth Taylor’s Funeral

Truth rating: 10
Elizabeth Taylor

The Westboro Baptist Church plans to protest Elizabeth Taylor‘s funeral.

Margie Phelps, the WBC’s lawyer and daughter of leader Fred Phelps, announced the group’s intention on Twitter.

Known for their vile message of “God Hates F*gs” and policy of disturbing the bereaved, the “Church” now intends to disrupt Taylor’s ceremony due to her ardent HIV/AIDS activism and “enabling” of gays.

We’re at a loss for words.

Taylor died early today at 79.
