Protesters: Adam Lambert is a "Rebel Against God"

by at . Comments

It's both incomprehensible and incredibly depressing that people like this exist.

But at last night's American Idol concert in Kansas City, awful, close-minded members of the Westboro Baptist Church stood outside and protested the mere existence of Adam Lambert.

They held signs that read "God Hates Fags" and, as heard on the video below, one of them referred to Lambert and other homosexuals as a "bunch of rebels against God... they're teaching rebellion against the standards and commandments of God."

Such ignorant, hateful morons make Jon Voight look sane and reasonable.

Rising above it all, Lambert Tweeted after the show:

Thank you all for the support. Love overcomes hate. Love has no color. Love has no orientation. All is love. :)

This is the second time this summer that a Church has sponsored this sort of protest. Other gay-haters picketed a concert in San Jose in July.

It's interesting to note how Lambert has handled these incidents of pure vitriol, compared to how the Carrie Prejean has handled her scandal-filled spotlight. Who do you think is a better Christian role model?

Please don't call these haters Christians. They give Christians a bad name. They are just being true to their religion by protesting because that's what they are PROTESTANTS who disobeyed the teaching of the true church and separated. Remember that God demands obedience. It was the first SIN - disobedience. So call them what they really are, they are the rebels against GOD - PROTESTANTS.

GOD IS LOVE. It's the Adversary, Satan, who is HATE.
Where can you find GOD or where are the godly? It's where there is LOVE.
Where can you find Satan or those who serve Satan? It's where there is division, confusion and dissension. Satan hates unity and harmony.
Satan must hate ADAM so much for he gets so much love from his fans.
Satan must hate ADAM because this creature has no evil bone in him.
ADAM generates so much love from his GOD given Gifts giving JOY to the world.
As long as loyal fans love ADAM and do charity because of him for the love of GOD, haters who serve Satan will never win.
For LOVE triumphs! ADAM wins!!!

This is the same kind of religious fundamentalism that spawns young terrorists who kill in the name of Allah. I agree with sarah that Westboro Baptist Church is a hate group like the KKK and neo-nazis. God is crying in heaven over such display of hatred, ignorance and moral depravity. Shame on any church that would teach that such a thing as this is right and any parent that trains a child to think this way. (To the women: Girls you have been brainwashed. This way of thinking is an illness. Break free. God is unconditional love. Your actions represent hatred and a severe lack of true education.) I would say that this group is not worth our time but the truth is that people like this are dangerous and need to be watched. I'm glad we live in a free society where things like this are expressed openly, videotaped, and put on Youtube for all to see and respond.

he may born into a jewish family or culturally jewish, but i read it somewhere he identifies as a secular agnostic btw, not that it makes any of these protests any less outrageous.

Those people who belive that god or Jesus hate gays etc, are the ones that give Christians a bad name, because it not true, and instead of showing love to all kinds of people, there the first ones to show hate. God loves all kinds of people and so does Jesus !!

Here's a translation of the hymn Ubi Caritas: Where charity and love are, God is there.
Christ's love has gathered us into one.
Let us rejoice and be pleased in Him.
Let us fear, and let us love the living God.
And may we love each other with a sincere heart.
Where charity and love are, God is there.
As we are gathered into one body,
Beware, lest we be divided in mind.
Let evil impulses stop, let controversy cease,
And may Christ our God be in our midst.
Where charity and love are, God is there.
And may we with the saints also,
See Thy face in glory, O Christ our God:
The joy that is immense and good,
Unto the ages through infinite ages. Amen. I think more people should be listening to this sort of message than to hateful, bigoted nonsense.

First of all, Adam is Jewish. Second, he does set a really good example, and he doesnt have to be Christian to do that. Adam is Jewish and hes said that many times. He's a wonderful person and we love him, people like this are just wasting their time.

Adam Lambert is amazing and it's ridiculous to protest against him. FYI: Adam is Jewish.

I am embarassed that my hometown, Kansas City, was chosen by an ignorant, hypocritcal, self-righteous, uneducated, unenlightened, bigoted group of hate-mongers like the members of the Westboro Baptist CHURCH (GIMME A BREAK)to protest a smart, educated, enlightened, kind and caring young man sharing his God given talent.
Adam: you are welcome in Kansas City anytime. Keep the faith.

Hate, hate, hate and Adam rises above it all as usual. A true talent and great person. These people have probably been brainwashed from birth. It's a cycle and it is sad. Go Adam! Your star shines bright!
