Church group targets Foo Fighters
Religious zealots are to picket outside an upcoming Foo Fighters concert after accusing the rockers of promoting “fornication, adultery and idolatry”.
Members of the Westboro Baptist Church, comprised mostly of Pastor Fred Phelps’ family members, are planning a stake-out when Dave Grohl and his bandmates play the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Kansas on September 16.
A statement from the anti-gay fundamentalists reads: “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**s…
“The people in this nation have sinned away their day of grace and have so enraged their God that you are seeing new outpourings of his wrath continually. 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.”
