MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

So much for Elvis resting in peace.  Westboro Baptist Church members are planning on holding a protest at Graceland today but they won't be alone. There will be a counter protest. 

According to the church's website, they are picketing because they claim Elvis was a drug user and adulterer. They also refer to Graceland "hell".

These are the same church members who usually protest at soldier's funerals. They say they are headed to Ole Miss tomorrow where they will be protesting the sin of making idols out of sports figures.
