Westboro Baptist Church planning to protest Robin Williams' funeral
Aug. 15, 2014, 6:41 PM EST

Members of the controversial Westboro Baptist Church are planning an ill-advised protest at tragic actor Robin Williams' funeral over his portrayal of a gay man in "The Birdcage."

The "Good Will Hunting" star passed away on Monday and while details of his funeral have not been made public, members of the church have already announced plans to picket the memorial.

A message posted on the group's official Twitter page reads: "Westboro Baptist Church Hopes To Preach In Lawful Proximity To Robin Williams' Funeral - To Warn The Living: Repent Or Likewise Perish."

However, organizers at Planting Peace have launched a fundraiser to counter the church's plans.

A message from co-founder Aaron Jackson reads: "Robin Williams played many different roles in so many people's lives, and giving back to others was at the top of that list. His appeal crossed generational boundaries. I was personally impacted when I heard of his passing. This is a small gesture to honor his legacy and the difference he made to so many.

"When the WBC announced they were protesting Robin's funeral, we felt like launching a fundraiser for a charity Robin loved would be the perfect way to honor him and counteract the message of hate and intolerance that the WBC continues to convey."

The proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit St. Jude Children's Hospital, which Williams supported during his life.

why hasn't anyone burned down the WBC's facilities yet? It was a joyful day when Phelps died, but his cancer spawned followers still do his work.
