article imageWestboro Baptist Church Plans To Picket Tim McLean's Funeral

By KJ Mullins     Aug 8, 2008 in World
The Westboro Church has announced that it plans to picket Tim McLean's funeral in Winnipeg. Mr. McLean died in a grisly attack on a Greyhound bus last week.
The church has picketed funerals and held other protests across Canada and the United States.
In 1999 they burned a Canadian flag in Ottawa during a protest when the Supreme Court ordered Ontario to allow same-sex couples to be included in the definition of spouse.
The church is led by pastor Fred Phelps, issued a PDF press release (sort of) stating:
"God is punishing Canada, for passing laws against WBC - by exposing Canadians as cannibals and highway decapitaters. WBC prays for more and worse calamities from God. We'll picket their funerals."
The press release is concluded with "The Headless Canadian, Time McLean Jr."
Seven church members are expected to go to Winnipeg to picket. The hate-filled church group claims that God hates Canada and that God is punishing Canada.
Update: Border guards in Canada are under orders to block the group from entering the country to picket the funeral.
