Westboro church members target Elizabeth Edwards' funeral

Westboro church members threatened to picket Elizabeth Edwards' funeral Saturday, according to an article by The Boston Herald.

The article says that five church members, infamous for their anti-homosexual beliefs, showed up to Edwards' funeral.

Dozens of people who were opposed to these church members disrupting the funeral showed up as well, according to an article by Time.

The Westboro Baptist Church is most known for picketing American soldiers' funerals.

Edwards, 61, was the wife of formal presidential candidate John Edwards.

She passed away from cancer earlier in the week, which, according to The Boston Herald's Margery Eagan, has nothing to do with the Westboro church besides a chance for attention from the media.
