Westboro_Baptist_ChurchThe famously anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas, promised last week to picket Whitney Houston’s funeral, claiming that the star died because she disobeyed God.

The church, who own websites such as godhatesfags.com, claim that every tragedy in the world can be linked to homosexuality.

Church leader Margie Phelps posted a picture on twitter which appeared to show the Westboro slogan ‘God hates fags’ on placards outside Houston’s funeral, claiming that the protest was ‘rocking the house’.

However according to various sources, the picture may have been photoshopped and the anti-gay church may have not been at the funeral at all.

The Star-Ledger, New Jersey’s biggest newspaper quickly denied the church’s claim by commenting that the area shown in the photo was completely blocked off by police and that their reporters had found no sign of protests in that area.
