Elizabeth Edwards funeral to draw protestors

RALEIGH, N.C. - December 11, 2010

One group planning to be in Raleigh is from the controversial Westboro Baptist Church out of Kansas.

They are known for picketing funerals for American soldiers.

They're planning to speak out against Edwards for allegedly doubting her faith and supporting gay rights.

Another group is forming to block them and they're being creative about it.

A multi-media firm came up with the idea for people to block the Edwards family from the protestors. by wearing Tar Heel Blue.

That's the color of Edwards' alma-mate, U-N-C.
