According to the bigoted members of The Westboro Baptist Church, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik and company are only headed in one direction:

Straight up, to the fiery pits of Hell.

Yes, this warped religious institution has set its sights on One Direction, just days after labeling Taylor Swift a whore.

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.

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.

The Westboro Baptist Church has responded to a little girl's lemonade stand campaign to raise money for peace the only way they know how.

Over the weekend, the touching story of Jayden Sink and her lemonade stand for peace - across the street from the infamous WBC - went viral.

Setting up shop at the Equality House - a rainbow-colored dwelling owned by a nonprofit - Jayden set out to sell lemonade for love and understanding.

Members from the Topeka, Ks., church apparently attempted to call the local police and later stooped to yelling profanities at her lemonade customers.

When that failed, the WBC updated their sign out front:

Westboro Baptist Church Sign

Can't you just feel the warm embrace of the "church."

A five-year-old girl decided to set up a lemonade stand dedicated to peace on Earth - right outside the Westboro Baptist Church compound in Kansas.

Anti-WBC Girl

Jayden Sink is the daughter of Jon Sink, founder of the philanthropic arts group FRESHCASSETTE. They set up shop at the The Equality House.

That rainbow-colored building was recently purchased across the street from Westboro's Topeka HQ by Aaron Jackson, co-founder of Planting Peace.

Together, they're spreading goodwill, equality and peace - at what many might consider the epicenter of anything but. So what inspired young Jayden?

After being told that the church across the street had a message of hate, she set a goal of raising money to go towards a message of love and peace.

The Westboro Baptist Church is drawing a link between Monday's devastating Oklahoma tornado and NBA star Kevin Durant's support for Jason Collins.

After Collins came out as gay in SI this spring, Oklahoma City Thunder forward Durant was one of many players to praise his courage and offer support.

According to the WBC, OKC is now paying the price.

Fred Phelps Jr., the son of Westboro Baptist Church minister Fred Phelps and the brother of Shirley Phelps-Roper, tweeted the following messages:

The Westboro Baptist Church, in response to Jason Collins coming out as gay this week, says it plans to protest a couple of NBA Playoff games.

Because, apparently, God hates the NBA.

Or #GodH8sTheNBA in Twitter parlance.

The WBC concludes this, of course, because they really do not like homosexuality, and Collins just became the first openly gay player in major U.S. team sports.

Therefore, they will picket Wednesday’s Game 5 between Oklahoma City and Houston, and tomorrow night’s Game 6 between Chicago and Brooklyn.

Boston bombing victim Krystle Campbell, one of the three people who died in the blast, will have her funeral protected by a "human shield" today if necessary.

The Teamsters union said it will step in if protesters from the Westboro Baptist Church show up and protest her memorial service, as they have stated.

On Sunday, Sean O’Brien, head of Teamsters Local 25, asked his fellow union members to participate in protecting mourners at this morning's ceremony.

Local 25 represents 11,000 men and women from the Boston area. O'Brien told the Boston Globe that he expected about 350 people to show up.

"It's the right thing to do," he said of Krystle Campbell's funeral. "The family deserves a peaceful grieving process that's free from any coward-led group."

With gay marriage in the Supreme Court's hands during historic arguments this week, people from all sides of the spectrum have descended upon D.C.

That includes the Westboro Baptist Church.

The anti-gay activists from Kansas are at it again, this time picketing the SCOTUS and facing off with numerous citizens who couldn't disagree with them more.

Journalism student Trey Yingst went down to experience for himself the scene outside the nation's highest court as it debates the issue of gay marriage.

The Westboro Baptist Church is about to get a big surprise.

Aaron Jackson, one of the founders of Planting Peace, bought the house that sits directly across from the Kansas church's compound six months ago.

This week, he painted it to match the gay pride flag.

Equality House

The project, which the nonprofit is calling the "Equality House," is the first in a new campaign Planting Peace plans to wage against the group.

The multi-pronged charity has, in the past, concentrated on rainforest conservation, opening orphanages and deworming programs, not just human rights.

That's clearly the focus here, though, as Planting Peace is about to give Westboro Baptist Church a taste of its own medicine right in its back yard.

Westboro Baptist Church was overwhelmed at its own protest this week as hundreds of citizen turned its anti-gay protest into a celebration of love.
