Foo Fighters To Be Picketed By Westboro Baptist Church


Radical Christian Group the Westboro Baptist Church has announced that it plans to picket the Foo Fighters at their upcoming September 16 performance in Kansas City, Missouri according to NME.

"The entertainment industry is a microcosm of the people in this doomed nation: hard-hearted, hell-bound, and hedonistic," Church leader Fred Phelps said on the church's website. "These people have a platform and should be using it to encourage obedience to God; instead they teach every person who will listen all things contrary to him: fornication, adultery, idolatry, fags."

The protest was announced days after the Foos released their video for "Hot Buns," a video featuring a fake gay pornographic theme.

The church concluded its statement by saying: "We will be there to remind you that the day of your destruction is upon you, even as you vainly seek comfort in the frivolities of this life. Your doom is coming, america! Repent or Perish!"
