Westboro vs. Foo Fighters

Posted by - 01:50 AM on 09/11/11
The Westboro Baptist Church plans to picket the Foo Fighters 9/16 show in Kansas City, in response to Foo Fighters' recently released "Hot Buns" promo video.
Quote"The entertainment industry is a microcosm of the people in this doomed nation: hard-hearted, hell-bound, and hedonistic. 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, f*gs." - Fred Phelps

They're pretty over-the-top people, no doubt, though I sort of agree with their message, that it's not a benefit to society to act like trashballs.

So stoked for this show. These guys are the worst, but all you can do is ignore them, or if you're Minus The Bear, drown them out with obnoxious drums.

Yep. This isn't even great press attention for them anyway. They already make themselves look like fools, so any attention given is just amusement at this point.

At least my old high school now has something in common with the Foos, hahaha.

When it's for a band I think it's hilarious because it's not going to hurt anyone.

My thoughts exactly. Stop giving them a platform.

I don't mind the press so much. It shows it's out there.

Yep. They thrive on making spectacles out of themselves, and I think most know it's a circus routine at this point.

Yeah cause protesting the funerals of soldiers is a really agreeable message...

So glad Scotland denied these assholes entry to the country.
