Westboro Church to protest Powell boys' funeral; Occupy Seattle to counter-protest

A notoriously anti-gay church plans to picket Saturday’s funeral for Charlie and Braden Powell and will be counter-protested by Occupy Seattle. Margie Phelps, daughter of the Topeka, Kan.-based Westboro Baptist Church’s founder, tweeted Wednesday night that the church will attend the boys' memorial service. The protest is to "remind" Gov. Chris Gregoire "they died because of her rebellion," a reference to her support of same-sex marriages.
