What the hell is wrong with people?? There has been reports Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, KS is planning to protest the funeral of deceased Poet/Laureate Maya Angelou. It would seem that their reasoning for the protest would be because of her stance on gay relations. I am all for speaking your peace but to picket at a person’s funeral is just as bad as gangs shooting up the funeral of a rival gang member.
