Daniel Sesker in Ogden, Iowa. A judge on Friday, June 19, 2009 set no timetable for his ruling after he accepted opposing arguments on Nebraska's flag-desecration law.

The Westboro Baptist Church, which usually protests military funerals with signs such as "God Hates America," will soon expand its hate message to the funeral of someone it calls a fallen "witch": Elizabeth Edwards.

The group announced on its website that it will picket Edwards's funeral for an hour-and-a-half on Saturday.

"WBC will picket a respectful distance from the funeral of Elizabeth Edwards who split hell wide open on December 7, 2010," the group says on its website. "This witch spent her life in defiance and disobedience to God, and blasphemed Him with her dying breath. She received multiple warnings and opportunties to repent. After God smacked her by killing her son, she thought she'd show Him, pumping herself full of hormones to have more kids. God gave her two more children, and she despised them like she did the first two, raising them to believe God is a liar."

"Our message is for the living," the group adds, "do not live like Elizabeth Edwards or you will die like her and spend eternity in Hell where the worm never dies and the fire is never quenched."
