Baptist Church To Protest Funeral Of Maya Angelou

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.
