Westboro Baptist Church: Fags Hate God


Now I don't care about you, but Fagburn can't get enough of Westboro Baptist Church and their "God Hates Fags" protests.
Some American journalists argue that as all they seek is publicity for their beyond warped world view, the best thing to do is ignore them.
Fagburn begs to differ. Each time these evil evangelical fuckwits turn up to noisily picket another funeral of a US soldier killed in Iraq or Afghanistan ("Thank God For Dead Soldiers"), they make thousands of people want to distance themselves from any kind of homophobia.
The latent conspiracy theorist in me sometimes wonders if this is actually the intention of Rev Fred Phelps and his family - and that they're really gay liberationists working deep undercover.
They were up to their old sick tricks again this weekend, announcing a protest outside a - get this - Lada Gaga concert in St Louis, Missouri.
It's not clear if they actually turned up - they often don't these days, they know they can make their point and the papers without carrying through with any action. (EDIT: They did! About six WBCs were outnumbered maybe 10 to one by counter protesters - there's a quite moving video shot by a fan here).
They declared on their website they wanted to "warn this little false prophetess and all of her over-indulged sycophants that they are each one, individually heading straight to hell in a gender-confused, self-loathing, tone-deaf hand basket and that a gift from the God they hate."
Which was nice of them.
The good lady tweeted; “At the risk of drawing attention to a hateful organization, I would like to make my little monster fan aware of a protest being held outside... the Monsterball in St.Louis tonight. Although we have had protesters before, as well as fundamentalists at the show... this group of protesters are hate criminals and preach using lude and violent language and imagery that I wish I protect you all from... Their message is of hatred and divisiveness, but inside at the Monsterball we preach love and unity... My request to all little monsters and public authority is to pay these hate criminals no mind. Do not interact with them, or try to fight... Do not respond to any of their provocation. Don't waste your words, or feelings, no matter what you hear or see... you are more fortunate and blessed than they are, and in your heart just pray for them. Although I respect and do not judge anyone... for their personal views on any politics or religion, this group in particular to me, is violent and dangerous... I wanted to make my fans aware of my views on how to approach, or rather not approach, these kinds of hate activists... Be inspired to ignore their ignorant message, and feel gratitude in your heart that you are not burdened or addicted to hate, as they are. X"
Good for her.
As ever Fagburn was secretly pleased - it's also finally given me an excuse to post the WBC's awesome version of Gaga's Telephone, Ever Burn.
All together now; "Stop praying, stop praying, God will not hear you anymore, You got the boys and the girls to be proud whores... Fornicating, Fuh fuh fornicating! Fuh fuh fornicating!"
See you all in hell.
