I just posted this on another question about this:
I live in NC just east of Raleigh. One of the teachers at my school was friends with the Edwards' son Wade who was killed at the age of 16 or 17 while in high school. She knew Elizabeth Edwards and thought a lot of her. She is going to the funeral. I told her this morning about the picketing. She started crying. I didn't know she would have that reaction, but I understand it. What did Elizabeth Edwards do that warrants the Westboro Baptist Church to come to town? If they have something to say about John Edwards......picket his funeral.

Every time I see a post like this I understand why Christians often get a bad rap. These people have no compassion and no heart. If they had any clue what Jesus taught and wanted us to do they would not be doing what they're doing.
Not all Christians lack compassion!!
I don't consider the Westboro freaks Christian, either!!

Somewhere, they forget that it says "Judge not, Lest You be judged." Matthew 7:1

I don't think they are Christians either. They use the name "Baptist" to gain entrance. I'm a Baptist. We cook meals for illness, deaths, babies being born. We submit names and concerns for the prayer closet. We go to bible study. We don't dance (well, we use to not dance), and we don't protest times of loss. These people are no more the normal, main-stream Baptist (or Christian) than the jihadists are the normal, main-stream Muslim.

I thought they just hated fags.. (their words)... what did Elizabeth do? Stayed with her lying cheating husband? Honor her marriage vows? What?
