I think many of us were taken by surprise to learn that Elizabeth died the day after the announcement that she was gravely ill. A whole community of breast cancer survivors were hoping for some kind of miracle. Perhaps from her death the miracle of a cure will soon come.
And now comes the news that Fred Phelps and his so called "Christian" Westboro Baptist Church followers will picket her funeral because she was a supporter of gay rights. What a disgraceful act of hatred! If you believe in God, who is supposedly all loving and all merciful, how can you even think like this?
Perhaps this is the final unforgiveable act that will drive a stake into the heart of this hateful group. I can only wish.
