The infamous Westboro Baptist Church is planning on picketing at Whitney Houston’s funeral. The extremist, anti-gay church says that Houston should have used her voice to spread the word of God and that they plan on making that fact known on the day of the singer’s funeral. The Digital Journal reports that the church claims that Houston used her talent to teach sin and is seen as an icon and role model for the LGBT community.
Westfield – The Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church, known for its radical demonstrations at the funerals of soldiers, celebrities, and homosexuals, has announced their plans to picket outside the funeral of music superstar Whitney Houston.
The church group believes that God is punishing the United States with death, disease, war and destruction because of America’s acceptance of homosexuality, and has gained support for its cause by protesting at high-profile public and private funerals around the country.
In a prepared statement they said, “God gave Whitney Houston a beautiful singing voice and a world-wide platform, which she should have used to encourage obedience to His Word and warn the wicked that their rebellion brings destruction from the hand of God. Westboro will picket her funeral to warn the living: “except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”
