Former President Bill Clinton, Senator Hillary Clinton, Senator Barack Obama and President George W. Bush are among the political leaders planning to attend the funeral of former Ohio Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones. And Fred Phelps, too.

Fred Phelps is the pastor of the Topeka, Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church. He and his congregation of mostly family members are planning to protest the funeral of the former Congresswoman.

At the group's website, the group announced their Cleveland Convention Center protest: “We will be there at the funeral of this evil woman – Representative, Stephanie Tubbs Jones. This country stood by as she voted to criminalize the word of God!! ... She is in a HELLA TROUBLE as her sentence is just beginning, you know.”

Tubbs Jones, the first African-American woman to represent Ohio in Congress and an ally to the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community, died last week in a Cleveland, OH hospital after a brain hemorrhage.

The Westboro Baptist Church came to national attention when they started picketing the funeral processions of soldiers killed during the Iraq war. Phelps believes dead soldier returning from Iraq are God's punishment for American support of gays and lesbians.

The group also protested the first gay marriages held in California, saying: “WBC will picket the godless and blasphemous same-sex marriage farce scheduled to take place in God-forsaken, Hell-bound San Francisco ... God Hates Fags & Fag-Enables. ... GOD HATES CALIFORNIA.”

Gay groups, who were mourning the loss of Tubbs Jones, were in disbelief. “[Stephanie Tubbs Jones] always stood tall against hateful bigots like Fred Phelps and his ilk,” said Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays Executive Director Steve Ralls. “The deplorable depravity of Fred Phelps will never be a match for the transcendent spirit of Stephanie Tubbs Jones.”

The church also plans to protest Senator Barack Obama's acceptance speech in Denver.

Stephanie Tubbs Jones' funeral is scheduled for Saturday at the Cleveland Convention Center.
