Westboro Baptist Church Promises to Picket Pete Seeger Funeral

So the Westboro Baptist Church has vowed that its members will picket the funeral of legendary folk singer Pete Seeger, who died at the age of 95.

Recently, we’ve seen them promise to picket but never follow through, but this time it might be different. Rather than offhandedly use their “#picketfunerals” hashtag, they’ve sent out a considered tweet stating that they’ll bring their hatred to Seeger’s funeral.

The “church,” which has made its name in protesting the funerals of victims of tragedies — somehow relating the deaths to acceptance of homosexuality in society — has proven time and again that no tragedy is safe from the group’s vile opinions.
