Shirley Phelps-Roper said that 102.1 The Edge in Toronto, Canada and the KXXT-AM in Phoenix, Arizona offered an airtime for an interview and to discuss the church views in exchange for its members not to protest the girl’s funeral.

Meanwhile, reports said that the group will show up on Friday‘s funeral of U.S. District Judge John Roll, one of the six people shot dead on Saturday‘s shooting incident.
