Westboro Baptist To Picket Elizabeth Edwards' Funeral

Members of the Westboro Baptist Church announced Thursday plans to picket Saturday's funeral for Elizabeth Edwards in Raleigh, North Carolina.

The Kansas-based Church - monitored by anti-hate groups such as the Anti-Defamation league and the Southern Poverty Law Center - is known for its extremist opposition to homosexuals, Jews and other groups.

According to the church's website, members will hold a protest from 12:15 p.m. to 1 p.m.
