Is nothing sacred anymore? Can’t a family just bury a loved one in peace?

Even in death, it seems that Elizabeth Edwards is stirring controversy from some radical members of the infamously awful Westboro Baptist Church.

So, what sins did she commit?

Elizabeth Edwards, the recently deceased wife of North Carolina senator John Edwards is being criticized, even in DEATH, by a bunch of whack jobs from the Westboro Baptist Church, who claim that she didn’t recognize faith in God throughout the difficulties she’s faced in her life.

Um, that’s sort of none of your business.

According the Associated Press:

Elizabeth Edwards, 61, died Dec. 7 after battling cancer for six years. During that time, she accepted her condition, and talked about it openly, even writing letters to her children based on the letters from Aurora Greenway to her daughter in the 1983 film, “Terms of Endearment.”

The wife of North Carolina Senator John Edwards, Elizabeth wrote a note of farewell that was posted on Facebook in the days before her death. It began: “You all know that I have been sustained throughout my life by three saving graces—my family, my friends, and a faith in the power of resilience and hope.”

But that apparently wasn’t good enough, because members of the church, known for their anti-homosexual protests at funerals, are slated to protest 45 minutes before the funeral.

Why? You ask.

Her definance of God throughout her struggles, including the death of her son, Wade, who died in a car crash when he was 16, and her six-year battle with cancer.

Again, none of your business! Who do these people think they are?

Seriously, would you join in a protest at a funeral for a women you never knew personally because you believed she didn’t believe in God enough? Get a life!

Edwards’ funeral will take place Saturday at Edenton Street United Methodist Church in Raleigh.
