Westboro Baptist Church, the independent church whose members take pride in celebrating the deaths of fallen soldiers, said Thursday it would take its anti-social campaign to Apple co-founder Steve Jobs' funeral.
Somewhat ironically, Westboro founder Fred Phelps' daughter Margie used an iPhone application to tweet that the church would picket.
"Westboro will picket his funeral. He had a huge platform; gave God no glory & taught sin," she wrote.
"No peace for man who served self, not God," she added later.
The Topeka, Kansas-based church, made up almost entirely of members of the Phelps family, is known for its extreme stance against homosexuality and its anti-social protest activities. It is widely described as a hate group.
The death Wednesday of Jobs, Apple's 56-year-old co-founder and former CEO, touched off a wave of international tributes. No date has yet been set for his funeral.
