In the eyes of teenage girls around the globe, Justin Bieber is a heartthrob who can do nothing wrong.
But in the eyes of a specific sect of mentally unbalanced church goers, this 16-year old is a shaggy-haired example of all that's wrong with the world.
At last night's concert in Kansas City, members of the infamous Westboro Baptist Church protested Justin "to remind all of those in attendance that America's destruction is imminent."
What's their specific beef with Bieber? The group says he "has a platform given to him by God to speak to this world; he has a duty to teach obedience by his actions and words. He refuses to do that because he knows his concert halls would be empty! So, he teaches you to sin and rebel against God's commandments."
Well, sure... but just look at that adorable face!
Earlier this month, the church also protested Lady Gaga concerts in St. Louis and Oklahoma City. They did the same to Adam Lambert last summer, rallying against his homosexuality.
Members have been known to show up at funerals of soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan with signs reading "Thank God for Dead Soldiers" and "God Hates Fags." They criticized Bieber for performing last Christmas in Washington where "he got to pose with Anti-Christ Beast Obama," adding:
"He and Obama are of one mind and they are leading this nation to hell! Justin will answer to God!"
That's possible. But when he does, God will likely give the dude props for setting a new YouTube record.
