JOE MCLAUGHLIN/Gannett New Jersey)

Members of the controversial Westboro Baptist Church, based in in Topeka, Kan., plan to protest at Cherry Hill High School East and the USCJ 2009 Biennial Convention on Monday, December 7.

The church has gained national notoriety in recent years for its picket lines at soldiers' funerals to present its message that their deaths are God's punishment for Americans' tolerance of homosexuality. According to a press release, the group will protest at Cherry Hill HS East from 7:30 a.m. to 8 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 7.

The group's picketing schedule also states that protestors will be outside of the Crowne Plaza Hotel from 8:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 7 to protest the International Biennial Convention for The United Synagogue for Conservative Judaism (USCJ).
