Sources with Westboro Baptist Church say the church plans to picket Maya Angelou’s funeral.
A series of twitter messages were published to the Westboro Baptist Church’s social media page recently. The church attempted to desecrate Angelou’s legacy by publishing infammatory tweets about the literary great.
“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 extremist, anti-gay church blasted Angelou by calling her a “Gay rights champ,” “God defier,” Sin enabler” and “Fresh inhabitant of Hell” — and in doing so, mentioned that they plan to picket her funeral.
KFOR-TV reports that a memorial service 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 announced
