Right-wing preacher Fred Phelps’s Westboro Baptist Church (WBC), an “anti-gay hate group,” is planning to picket former White House press secretary Tony Snow’s funeral. WBC members are upset because Snow was a “critic” of their operation and “a high-profile representative of godless Big Media and Big Government.” In the past, WBC has said that “war casualties are divine revenge for America tolerating gays and lesbians.”
