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

by at .  Updated 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:

Is Taylor Swift a whore, as the WBC contends?

This makes me really sad. Taylor is such a beautiful girl inside and out and she's a brilliant role model for young girls. I've listened to her music since I was 11 and I feel like she's helped raise me and made me a better person in the process. She only wants to do good on this earth and I don't understand how people get the wrong idea about that. I have so much respect and love for her. People should find out a bit more about her as a person before making such strong opinions.

The fact that the evil folks at Westboro Baptist Church hates someone means that they are probably decent people. I have never seen a more evil, unChristian like group than these creeps. Doubt if they will survive after the old man dies. Ms Swift keep living your life and singing your songs. Normal people support you!

It's really sad what this group of Christians do to other people. I hope non-believers out there do not see all Christians like this because most are not. As children of God we are suppose to love every one like God loves us, not say mean and vulgar things about people we do not know. This sickens me. I will be praying that the people of this group see the light on what they are doing wrong and hopefully find a better way to spread the gospel. And I will also be praying for Taylor in the hopes that people get off her back. The way I see it, she is a very successful and intelligent young lady with high standards and morals. And hopeful a strong relationship with the Savior. And to think I'm only 16 and can have more respect and manners than a whole group of adults...smh.

You consider the Westboro Baptist Church Christian? I think you need to reevaluate that. Evil maybe, Christ like, I do not think so.

To Mr. Phelps unless u had some from her you need to restrain your mouth. You must of had many of women and slept with them: you see not all woman are necessarly that way like perhapes the ones you dated. Then don't kiss and tell on your self either. Remember you can always change the channel. I am asinner too, saved by Grace I chanced the channel; but not on this person she is clean leave her alone.

Why is that "church" in the news again? The media needs to stop paying attention to that sick group of malcontents. That sorry bunch of poor excuses for human beings should just be ignored.

Yes,Taylor Swift is a sinner. Just like me, Mr. Phelps and every single member of the Westboro Baptist Church congregation.

Why is it when women date a lot of men they are a whore, but when men date a lot of women they are sowing their wild oats? Just because she is dating, and that is what young people do, does not mean she is sleeping with every one of them people!! Grow up and leave her alone. She is doing what every young person on this earth is doing, dating!!!!
