Westboro Baptist Church Picket Foo Fighters

After 'Hot Buns' video

Westboro Baptist Church are set to picket Foo Fighters in response to their recent ‘Hot Buns’ video.

Achieving infamy thanks to some high profile public appearances, the Westboro Baptist Church have reached a level of prominence far beyond their meagre funds. Even British audiences have taken notice of their often extreme actions, with Louis Theroux being dispatched (twice) to investigate.

Picking high profile targets, the Westboro Baptist Church set up often quite prominent pickets. Now the Christian group have chosen to turn their attention to Foo Fighters after a recent video.

‘Hot Buns’ was a viral designed to promote the band’s upcoming North American tour. Dressed as truckers, Foo Fighters engage in some saucy activities in the shower as they seemingly aim to re-create a gay porn film.

Westboro Baptist Church are outraged, and have organised a picket against Foo Fighters at the Spirit Center in Kansas City on September 16th. Taken from their official website…

WBC to picket the Foo Fighters at the Sprint Center. 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, fags. 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.

The LORD hath rejected and forsaken the generation of his wrath. [They] have done evil in my sight, saith the LORD…And the carcasses of this people shall be meat for the fowls of the heaven, & for the beasts of the earth…Then will I cause to cease from the cities of Judah, and from the streets of Jerusalem, the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride: for the land shall be desolate. Jeremiah 7:29-34

Your doom is coming, america! Repent or Perish!
