Westboro Baptist Church in the United States (where else) have vowed to picket “crotch-grabbing little perverts” One Direction’s concert.
The Westboro Baptist Church, who picket the funerals of dead soldiers in America, also slammed the “Christ-hating UK” for not allowing them to preach their hate. This was after the group was banned from entering the UK to picket a production of The Laramie Project, a play about the murder of gay student Matthew Shepherd at the University of Wyoming.
One Direction are set to play a gig in the church’s state of Kansas later this month, and they have vowed to mount a protest outside.
The a statement, the group said it believes the boy band are “a perfect representation of this filthy world and the sin-chasing, fag-enabling, Christ-rejecting UK who has banned WBC from preaching within her borders.”
They added: “These freaks and their fans think it’s funny for these five perverts to grab each other’s asses on stage. They glamorise sin and mock of God’s standards. Their one purpose is to encourage the youth of this generation to pursue every lust their evil hearts can imagine.”
And as if that wasn’t enough to convince you we are dealing with lunatics, they have made a cover of One Direction’s number one single “One Thing”.
The cover starts: “We’ll be playing it cool/ When God’s wrath is on you/ None of you will be brave/ When god ends this human race.”
Its chorus continues: “Get all those lies right out of your head/ Focus on obeying instead/ You know, you know, you know what it is/ Obeying that one thing.”
