Gay-Hating, Close-Minded Morons Bash Adam Lambert, Picket American Idol Concert

by at . Comments

In an incomprehensible, depressing state of human affairs, anti-gay demonstrators protested Adam Lambert at an American Idol concert in San Jose on Sunday.

Members of the hate-filled, close-minded, controversial Westboro Baptist Church were spotted outside the HP Pavilion, carrying signs that criticized homosexuals and chanting about Lambert's sexuality.

The season eight runner-up revealed his sexual preference in an interview with Rolling Stone last month, a few weeks after he finished second to Kris Allen on the Fox series.

Out and Proud

Keep smiling, Adam Lambert. You have far more fans than critics.

Fortunately, Lambert's fellow American Idol finalists have his back. Michael Sarver told fans inside the venue that his friend wasn't fazed by the idiots outside.

"Funny how people think it's a good idea to mess with a big Texan and his AI family," Sarver Twetted. "Adam is just fine, shakes it off and so should we.

"We are together in this thing. You mess with one you mess with all ten. We are strong and we are 1. For those outside protesting I say do not judge less ye be judged yourself. Guys don't mind these people, we are a strong family."

Seriously, who does such a thing?!? These protesters had just one goal in mind: to spread hate. We pity them and their sorry existence.

What the world needs now is LOVE: Love GOD above all. And love your fellowmen as yourself. But most of all, love your enemies. How? Just pray and ask GOD to bless all mankind, all sinners, families, friends and enemies. And in praying, do it behind close doors, not out preaching/protesting for all to see unless you're at the pulpit. Hate the sin but love the sinner. Let's all choose to love than hate. And pray it spreads and multiplies.

Spreading hate? The internet is doing that just fine, tq.

Good job Sarver! Thank you for being a man strong enough to step up for Adam! I don't expect Gokey to do it but I do expect Kris Allen to. I wasn't expecting Sarver to. I thought (and obviously I am wrong) that Sarver was a good ole boy with homophobia who would diss Adam first chance he got. I have read in several sites and bloggers that Adam came to his rescue once after an event. I was not ready to see Sarver do the same for Adam. Everyone knows that Adam has a huge pair and stands up for the little guy or I should say the guy who is getting picked on. Folks didn't know that Sarver was a stand up guy. For that I'll now buy his songs when they come out as well as my wife and friends. We all like Adam. We will support him and his friends. Peace out.

Sounds like Mr. Sarver has had a change of heart somewhere. I do recall reading about someone overhearing a conversation backstage between Danny Gokey and Michael Sarver themselves discussing gays and bashing. Mr. Sarver stated that "Where I come from they are either in the closet or dead". My my, sounds like someone had to educate Mr. Sarver and Mr. Gokey that that sort of talk doesn't play well. I am a 54 yr old grandmother and was shocked at the ignorance of these 2 contestants. So now, since Adam has had your back, now you are willing, for a little press attention, to have his back. That is being a hypocrite where I come from!

hopefully, this will not be a trend, I'm curious to see what will happen when the tour hits the midwest and the south. The fact is, there are a lot of hateful, narrowminded people in the world. BTW, for everyone who is really upset about this, may I recommend Lily Allen's wonderful song, "Fuck You." It's really funny and says it all!

There was this type of activity against Elvis, too, when he first began. Thank God it didn't deter him from going on with his career.

They were not protesting Adam - they protest any concerts, sporting events (they are there when the Devils play hockey) just normal everyday CA religious nutcases. You should've heard the guy in Union Square the day before in SF! OMG another story!

Let the haters rot in hell! Rock on Adam! Maybe news outlets should stop reporting on these narrow minded people and helping to spread their disgusting views.

Running around judging other people and spreading hate and intolerance while exalting yourself does NOT make you a Christian. It makes you a sad, sorry fanatic. The kind Christ tried to convert into somebody decent.

The Baptist are and have always been extremely small minded people. Glad to hear it did not bother Adam. Adam is so much more of a human being than those so-called religious types! Go Adam! Watching the youtube video's of all the Idol concerts of Adam has been a thrill. He is one heck of a singer and so good looking it is amazing to watch him.

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
