Religious Radicals Plan to Picket Sage Stallone's Funeral

Fred Phelps's daughter from the Westboro Baptist Church protest Sylvester Stallone's multiple marriages.

Members of the Westboro Baptist Church have been called to picket actor l on account of his "adulterous dad," Sylvester Stallone.

After it was announced that the 36-year-old actor had died on July 13, Margie Phelps, daughter of Westboro leader Fred Phelps, tweeted to her 5,600 followers, urging them to picket Stallone's funeral.

"Thrice-married rebel taught his son to mock God. ‪#picketfuneral‬," Phelps first tweeted on July 13.

The Westboro Baptist Church, infamous for its organized pickets at military funeralsas part of its anti-gay agenda, is apparently  targeting Sage because of his father's previous relationships.

In an article in The Huffington Post, it was reported that Phelps tweeted: "Adulterous dad brought wrath of God on son. ‪#BloodOnDadsHands‬ ‪#picketfuneral‬ ‪#woe‬," Phelps tweeted, adding, "Tell @TheSlyStallone to mourn for his sins, not pimp out son's dead body to more proud sin!"

Sylvester Stallone has been married three times and Sage was his first child with his first wife, Sasha Czack, to whom he was married from 1975 to 1985.

Sylvester has asked that his family's privacy be respected during this difficult time.

"When a parent loses a child there is no greater pain," he said in a statement released to TMZ. "Therefore I am imploring people to respect my talented son's memory and feel compassion for his loving mother Sasha."

Sage Stallone was found dead in his Studio City home on Friday, July 13. Toxicology results and a cause of death are still pending.

People really don't have anything better to do? Sins of the father aren't visited upon the son. This is the 21st century. Leave this boy and his family in peace. You'll gain nothing from your picketing except to show your intolerance and lack of respect.

I went to school with sage And I can tell you he was a very sweet and giving person. I don't understand how people who call themselves christians can be so brutally cruel to a family that is grieving so deeply.
