Westboro Baptist church to protest at Taylor’s funeral – “She should’ve obeyed God”

Two of Taylors best friends, Rock Hudson (who died of AIDS) and Montgomery Clift were gay.

From TMZ via Time Magazine today:

Friends and family of Elizabeth Taylor may get unexpected visitors at her funeral — picketers from the Westboro Baptist Church.

Margie Phelps, daughter of the hate group’s leader Fred Phelps, tweeted Wednesday that they would picket Taylor’s funeral, most likely because of Taylor’s gay friends and humanitarian work against AIDS. Phelps also tweeted several attacks on Taylor, including “RIP Elizabeth Taylor is in hell as sure as you’re reading this & getting mad as a wet hen. She should’ve obeyed God. Too late!”

Taylor was a prominent AIDS activist, starting the American Foundation for AIDS Research after the 1985 death of Rock Hudson. In 25 years, the foundation raised over $100 million. (via TMZ)

    Why are some people so full of hate?

      Most Americans and most Christians are not hateful and cruel. These few folks are an aberration and so they grab all the headlines.

      My God is loving and kind and as my friend Freedom says, like all of us, the Phelps family will have to answer for their acts.

      It’s Christian Karma. 😉

  • Freedom, by the way

    The irony of it is that these people will have to answer for their actions, as well.

    I can’t believe the courts have declared these hyenas can do this kind of thing. Goolish.

    • roxannadanna

      It’s incredible, isn’t it? But I’ve seen that in some places, the community actually surrounded these evil protesters and their signs with American flags and their own bodies and shield the mourners from seeing this.

      This church is so not Christian…
