Elizabeth Edwards memorial Saturday in Raleigh: Folks planning to protect it against anti-gay pickets

The memorial service for Elizabeth Edwards is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Edenton Street United Methodist Church in Raleigh. Anti-gay people from Kansas (a church, supposedly) who make it their custom to picket the funerals of prominent people who supported gay rights have announced they'll be outside from 12:15 to 1. A Facebook group is forming to get there first and protect the church and the Edwards service from these zealots. Good idea.

The Facebook group writes:

The Westboro Baptist Church plans to protest for 45 minutes before the funeral set for 1 p.m. at Edenton Street United Methodist Church in downtown Raleigh, according to the church's website.

Lets come together as a community and block off the streets around the church. Peaceful...we have to be respectful its about Elizabeth Edwards not us and not gay rights...its about showing respect to a great North Carolina Lady. (no signs no yelling)

Lets block Westboro Baptist Church from even getting near the church with their hateful signs! We should show up by 11 a.m. the sooner the better to start blocking sidewalk space.
