Tonight on 360°, a look at the church preaching hate that plans to picket Elizabeth Edwards' funeral. Edwards, 61, died Tuesday of breast cancer. Her funeral tomorrow in Raleigh, North Carolina, is open to the public.
You'd expect words of comfort at a funeral, not words of hate. But tomorrow members of the controversial Westboro Baptist Church plan to demonstrate at the Edwards' funeral. The Kansas church is known for its protests at funerals for troops killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, where it speaks out against homosexuality.
Now the church is taking aim at Elizabeth Edwards and her family.
The church explains why in a disturbing post on its website.
"This witch spent her life in defiance and disobedience to God, and blasphemed Him with her dying breath."
The church goes on and on, calling the cancer that killed her God's punishment.
Again, these are the words of Westboro Church.
Several groups plan counter-protests against the church tomorrow. Anderson will talk with two of those counter-protestors tonight.
We'll also have an update from Haiti where people have been taking to the streets protesting the disputed presidential election.
The violence began Tuesday night after Haitians learned a popular candidate did not qualify for January's runoff election. Many Haitians call the election a fraud.
We'll check in with actor and activist Sean Penn who is back in Port-au-Prince.
