The Westboro Baptist Church had announced it would protest at former First Lady Betty Ford’s funeral in California and Michigan; however, they did not show in California.
The Westboro Baptist Church is saying they are going to protest Betty’s Ford’s funeral because she had been divorced when she married Gerald Ford and supposedly promoted premarital sex, according to the Westboro Baptist Church on their website.
According to the Westboro Baptist Church
She couldn’t wait to have an audience with a reporter to titter about premarital sex, and how much she loved to teach it to her daughters.
Westboro did not show for their protest in California, so the people of Grand Rapids, Michigan are not too worried; however, if Westboro does show up, the people of Grand Rapids will block them with a “peaceful human chain.” It seems that Westboro just like the publicity of the fact that they MIGHT show up.
Some members of the Westboro Baptist Church showed up in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 2006 for President Ford’s funeral.
I wonder how the member of Westboro Baptist Church would feel if one of their loved ones died and half of the world showed up to protest their loved ones funeral?
