One particularly hapless member of the Westboro Baptist Church -- which is known for its extreme stance against homosexuality -- was recently snapped wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the logo for "Glee," arguably the most gay-friendly show currently on television.

As Buzzfeed has noted, she "told [the photographer] she didn't know anything about the shirt, but that her sister gave it to her when they headed out this morning."

Known for carrying placards reading "God hates fags," "God hates Jews" and "God hates America," the Westboro Baptist Church's congregation has staged a number of large scale protests at the funerals of Elizabeth Edwards, Michael Jackson and Matthew Shepard, as well as a number of lesser-known U.S. military figures.

Take a look at photos of some of their protests below:

The Westboro Baptist Church first gained national notice at the funeral of Matthew Shepard who had been robbed, brutally beaten and left to die in Laramie, Wyoming.
