God Hates Fags church protests Radiohead gig
The infamous Westboro Baptist Church picketed a Radiohead concert in Kansas City, Missouri yesterday with trademark placards reading ‘God Hates Fags’ and others questioning the band’s song-writing abilities.
The multiple Grammy-winning British outfit were labelled “freak monkeys with mediocre tunes” by the fundamentalist group, which commonly pickets memorials for deceased soldiers.
It said: “God is undoing this nation and effecting all of your lives, with the moth that quietly eats the very fabric of your national garment. Radiohead is just such an event.”
Members stood outside that venue holding signs that said “God hates Lady Gaga” in protest at her “promotion” of homosexuality.
Producer Nigel Godrich tweeted of the demonstration: “Highlight of the tour so far… Being picketed by westboro baptist church this evening.. Hoorah!”
Lampanelli was branded a “fag enabler” by the Church and said she would donate $1,000 to the Gay Mens Health Crisis charity for every member who attended a protest against her show in Topeka, Kansas.
48 people, many of them children, turned up to protest and after the show, Lampanelli tweeted that she’d round up the donation, writing: “I won’t quibble. I’ll make it an even $50,000!!!”
