CBS News:

Yes, the Westboro Baptist Church – the Kansas-based organization with a history of holding controversial and politically inflammatory protests – has announced that its members plan to picket the star’s funeral, according to reports.

TMZ reports that Margie Phelps, daughter of Westboro leader Fred Phelps, sounded off on Twitter Wednesday about the planned protest:

“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!”

Hey, Fred: if you want to follow Christ, I recommend you start by picketing precisely as many funerals as the Carpenter did.
Should those knuckleheads ever protest in Arlington, and I am home to do anything about it, I should like to muster a bunch of Christians for a flash choir to maybe breath a little love at these folks.
As for Liz: God rest the lady. I wasn’t a tremendous fan, but there’s no denying she was lovely.
