An article saying the “Westboro Asks Public Not to Picket Phelps Funeral” is just satire published by the Daily Current website. Unfortunately many people believe this is true and the piece has gone viral over the Internet.
In the end, there isn’t going to be a funeral for Westboro Baptist Church founder Fred Phelps, the church confirms. The church heavily picketed U.S. soldiers who died and other events.
Even if there were to be a funeral, picketing or protest the service would be a mistake. It would instead be the best time to practice what Jesus Christ says in Luke 6:13 (NIV): “Do unto others as you would have them do to you.”
Picketing a funeral is neither kind, nor Christ-like. And as we all know — two wrongs don’t make a right.
