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?

I definitely think that she could improve her image. She says that she's been such a good role model, but I don't think that's exactly true. She's dated an average of 10 men so far, and to many people, that's called "getting around." I think the fact that she can't keep a relationship also makes her a bad influence, but then again, look at Rihanna. Or Miley Cyrus. The way they carry themselves is much worse; however, that doesn't erase the fact that Taylor can't seem to stop at one guy.

Whoever the Westboro Church hates, I know I'm going to like: so, in a way, any celebrity targeted by this bunch of clowns will find themselves becoming more popular with the public.

This church seems to be very far removed from reality. Taylor Swift does NOT sleep around! They need to check their information first. A real pastor does not speak in this way. Taylor Swift does not have an immodest, vulgar appearance at all. He must be thinking of a different young singer with an M. Pay no mind to this church. FOOLS they are!!!

Fake Christians!!! In the words of Jesus:
"Judge not lest ye be judged." "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone." You people are vicious, self-righteous sinners. You are not God-like in your behavior.

Caligirl, Please don't lump all Christians in with this terrible church. That's like saying ALL black people are a certain way or ALL mexicans act a certain way. I'm sorry you have had a bad experience with church. But I know many Christians who are the most loving, giving people I have ever known. Westboro Church is so far from what God is & their example is horrible. Please don't think ALL Christians are this way. We are as appalled by this crazy church as you are.

This is exactly why I choose NOT to go to church. "Christians" are some of the most judgmental, backstabbing, gossiping, and hating people I've ever known. If they truly believed in that which they claim to stand for... they would pray for her rather than ridicule her in public! A pastor is also considered to be a "role model" and from what I just read here, this one is not a good one... who is HE to judge???!!! What an idiot!
