Westboro Baptist Church to Protest "Whore" Taylor Swift at Kansas City Concert

by at . Comments

Taylor Swift is beloved by millions, but to the Westboro Baptist Church, this is emblematic of the fact that our society is going straight to ... you know.

“This girl is a whore,” Ben Phelps, the leader of group said in announcing the WBC's plan to protest her August 3 concert in Kansas City, Missouri.

Taylor Swift Curves

The WBC called Taylor “the whorish face of doomed America” in a press release, and Phelps explains, “She’s widely loved. She’s got huge approval ratings.”

“What she’s famous for is hopping around from one bed from another. This girl is a whore. Who else is gonna say that if it’s not the church of the Lord Jesus?"

Imagine if this guy saw Miley Cyrus Twerking.

When Taylor Swift stops in Kansas City, not far from Westboro Baptist Church's Topeka, Ks., headquarters, they’re going to let her know how they feel.

“She’s coming into our backyard,” Phelps said. So we’re gonna go preach to her. Taylor tries to pretend that she’s a good Christian. But she’s not.

"When she has a huge platform like that, a huge influence on young women, she’s got a duty to tell about God’s standards. And she has absolutely failed.”

Citing her “immodest, vulgar appearance” and “serial fornication,” Phelps wants her to “promote the standards of God instead of whoredom, fornication … that filthy lifestyle.”

Immodest appearance? She has been showing off some curves lately (see above, who knew?!), but calling that vulgar may be a tiny bit of a stretch.

All depends on your perspective, we suppose. And Phelps' is that of disgust:

"Taylor Swift uses talent God gave her to warble about fornication,” he says.

“One simple tweet from her: ‘Stop fornicating ladies, and obey God’ would rock the house. But it would cost her millions she makes with her sin-coddling songs."

Until she changes her sinful ways, he says, expect backlash.

How big of a backlash? Phelps says Taylor Swift can expect at least 15 people, but he insists he’s not worried about the turnout, but the principle.

“It’s not about the numbers,” he says. “It’s about getting a message out."

"We’re concerned about putting the standard of God out there. Especially when you have a person like this who is inexplicably loved and revered."

"She’s a whore! I mean, come on.”

The irony is that while Swift has dated a lot, she's also rumored to be a chaste prude who is concerned about setting an example and does NOT fornicate much if at all.

Are we right? Or wrong? You tell us in the survey below:
