'God hates Lady Gaga' says Reverend Fred Phelps
KANSAS CITY, Kansas - A religious organization known for picketing the funerals of deceased American soldiers and vocally opposing rights for gays and lesbians have another target in sight: Lady Gaga.
The Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church, led by the Reverend Fred Phelps, issued a press release Tuesday in which they claimed Lady Gaga is a "proud whore" who was "going to Hell" for allegedly leading a "rebellion" against God.
The singer, who thanked "God and her gays" when receiving the Best New Artist award at the MTV Video Music Awards earlier this year, enslaves her fans to their own corruption, Phelps writes, "teaching them to glory in their shame. She hates you! ... Does the simple slut truly think that she can change God's standards by seducing a generation of rebels into joining her in fist-raised, stiff-necked, hard-hearted rebellion against Him? Get real!"
She also allegedly brings her fans into "slavery to their own corruption, teaching them to glory in their own shame."
The press release goes on to read the church intends to picket an upcoming concert of Lady Gaga's at the Fox Theatre in Missouri on January 7th, and it "genuinely" ends with "You're Going to Hell."
Westboro Baptist Church is known as an anti-gay hate group that abhors Italians and Catholics. But Lady Gaga need not fret, WBC doesn't just hate her, they hate everyone else, including Americans, the Irish, Swedish, Indians, the Jews, Hindus, and more.
