Apple founder and CEO Steve Jobs has passe away at the age of 56. The innovator in technology battled pancreatic cancer since 2004 and received a liver transplant in 2009. He held his post as CEO of Apple until January when he stepped down citing medical issues with no set date of return. In his lifetime, not only did Jobs help make Apple one of the largest and most successful technology corporations in the world, launching initiatives like the iTunes store, he also helped Pixar become a viable production company before he sold it to Disney in 2006.

Fringe religious organization Westboro Baptist Church plans to picket former Apple CEO Steve Jobs’ funeral, according to a tweet by top member Margie J Phelps
Westboro, known by most as the “God Hates Fags” people, travel around the country protesting high profile funerals of celebrities and fallen American soldiers. Their message is predominantly anti-gay and they claim that soldiers’ deaths are punishment from an angry God. They commonly sport signs that read “God hates you,” “America is doomed,” and “You’re going to hell.”
Consensus leans toward strong disapproval of the group, and they are commonly referred to as one of the most despised groups around. But the Supreme Court has upheld their right to protest at these events, saying that their free speech rights cannot be restricted simply because their speech is unpopular or even despicable.
Phelps tweeted this just a few hours ago. Note how the tweet was sent:
Yes, this tweet was sent via Twitter for iPhone. The irony here is almost unbelievable. What are your feelings and thoughts on this matter. Am disgusted by this church’s actions.
