The controversial Westboro Baptist Church has done it again---they picked a fight with the wrong funeral.
Outnumbered by a "human buffer" of people who sang Christmas carols and carried signs supporting Elizabeth Edwards at her funeral in Raleigh, N.C. on Saturday, Westboro was defeated.
The Christian Science Monitor reports that Westboro is an unaffiliated church in Kansas whose congregation consists of the Rev. Fred Phelps and his family members and their harsh views on homosexuality.
In a previous interview, Edwards said she was "completely fine with gay marriage", the catalyst to the picketers.
The service at the United Methodist Church was attended by nearly 2,000 people reported The Boston Herald.
