[Ed. – One point left and right agree on is that these people are cretins.]

A Kansas church, known for its strident opposition to homosexuality and picketing of soldiers’ funerals, has promised to protest the funeral of Beau Biden on Saturday.

The Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kan., will picket outside Wilmington’s St. Anthony of PaduaRoman Catholic Church from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., according to its website. Biden’s funeral Mass starts at 10:30 a.m. at St. Anthony.

“As for Beau Biden, his life was cut short by the will of God to whom all glory is given and he has an eternity of answering to the Lord for his own words, thoughts, actions and sins,” the protest announcement said.

Biden, who died of brain cancer Saturday at age 46, served in Iraq for a year in 2008 and 2009 as a lawyer for the Delaware Army National Guard.

Wilmington officials said about noon Friday that the Westboro group has not sought the permit required to hold a demonstration.

The protest announcement also had harsh words for Biden’s father, Vice President Biden.
