*Even though Fred Phelps, the founder of the infamous Westboro Baptist Church is gone and is probably spending time with Lucifer these days, the church he left behind is still carrying on just like when he was still here.
Yep, the “church” and we use the term loosely is still doing what’s its become infamous for: muck raking and picketing funerals of high profile people. Next on their list is the legendary Maya Angelou.
The world got wind of what they have planned because they made it known via social media. This past week they posted this nasty message:
“No RIP Maya Angelou. She was a staunch devil child who esteemed the love of the world more than the honor of God,” one tweet read.
The over-the-top organization disrespected the late Angelou by calling her “God defier,” Sin enabler” and “Fresh inhabitant of Hell” — and in doing so, mentioned that they plan to picket her funeral.
They also tweeted a picture of Angelou with messages that read: “Honor God! Not the dead” and “F*g enabler in Hell” (see it below).
A church that spreads hate is an oxymoron, but that’s what they do. Remember, they also picketed Whitney Houston’s funeral in 2012 and film reviewer/columnist Roger Ebert’s in 2013.
As we reported, Maya Angelou died this past Wednesday in her Winston-Salem home. She was 86.
Other than a memorial service that was held on Thursday at the Mount Zion Baptist Church in Winston-Salem where Angelou was a member of for over 30 years, official funeral arrangements have not yet been made public.
