LOUISVILLE, KY (AP) - A small Kansas church known for protesting at the funerals of dead servicemen and women is planning a trip to Kentucky this weekend.
Westboro Baptist Church members say they plan demonstrations at three Kentucky churches in Owensboro on Saturday: the Blessed Mother Catholic Church, Owensboro Christian Church and Bellevue Baptist Church.
They also announced plans to protest at Saint Lawrence Catholic Church in Louisville on Sunday.
One of the Owensboro churches was the site of a suicide of a man who said in a note he had been sexually abused.
The Diocese of Owensboro has so far declined to comment.
The Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that the church's incendiary rhetoric was protected by the First Amendment.
The controversial church has been known to back out of protests at the last minute.
