MOORE, Okla. (AP) - A Kansas church noted for picketing the funerals of soldiers and AIDS patients plans to protest outside a Moore liquor store that held a sale following the death of the church’s pastor.

Fred Phelps of the Westboro Baptist Church died March 19. The Moore Liquor Store offered 10 percent off champagne and erected a sign noting Phelps’ death and said the sale was “not a coincidence.”

Store owner Bryan Kerr told the Oklahoman newspaper (https://bit.ly/1rHtr7Z ) that while some people didn’t like the sign, “99 out of 100” people do support him.

The newspaper reported that church members plan to picket the store April 5 and sent a Twitter message Wednesday about the protest. The message was also sent to local media on Thursday.
