Steve Jobs' Sunday memorial service to be protested by the anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church.

The private event will be held at Stanford University's campus Sunday evening. Jobs was laid to rest last week. Expected to attend the invitation-only event are Silicon Valley luminaries and people close to Jobs, The Wall Street Journal reported.

In a tweet to his more than 1,400 followers, Steve Drain, a member of the Westboro Baptist Church, announced the group would picket the service. Drain, who is not related to church founder Fred Phelps, also posted on Facebook that the church would protest an upcoming celebration of Jobs' life to be held on Wednesday at Apple headquarters in Cupertino, California.

In an earlier tweet, Margie Phelps, daughter of Fred Phelps, messaged: “Westboro will picket his funeral. He had a huge platform; gave God no glory & taught sin.”

Tech visionary Jobs died on October 5. The 56-year-old father of four succumbed to pancreatic cancer after a long battle.

Jobs returned to helm Apple, the company he co-founded with Steve Wozniak, in 1997. He revolutionized the tech industry with the introduction of the iPod and later shook up the cellular phone market with the iPhone. He stepped down as CEO of Apple in August.

Westboro, which coined the phrase “God hates fags,” also protested the funerals of Elizabeth Edwards and the legendary actress Elizabeth Taylor.
