Adding insult to injury, Westboro Baptist Church, led by anti-gay extremist Fred Phelps, is planning a protest at Coretta Scott King’s funeral at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church on Tuesday, February 7 at 12 noon.
WBC said “for more than 10 years that by endorsing the homosexual agenda she was brining down the wrath of God upon herself, her family and the black civil rights movement. She is an ingrate-unthankful and unholy.”
Ironically King’s funeral will take place at mega church pastor Bishop Eddie Long’s New Birth Baptist Missionary Church. Long is an outspoken critic of gays and led a march to Dr. King’s grave denouncing gay rights in 2004 with King’s youngest daughter Bernice.
