The “church” of Westboro protests Lady Gaga’s concert in St. Louis AGAIN…
Excuse my language but Fred Phelps is a fucking idiot and he makes my skin crawl. Fred and his band of turds rallied together to protest Lady Gaga’s concert in St. Louis last night. This was the second time they have protested one of her concerts in St. Louis. Funny how they never try in protest in NYC or Philly…..Anyways, Gaga reached out to little monsters via twitter to let them know everything was fine and not to stoop to their level.
“At the risk of drawing attention to a hateful organization, I would like to make my little monster fan aware of a protest being held outside the Monsterball in St.Louis tonight. Although we have had protesters before, as well as fundamentalists at the show this group of protesters are hate criminals and preach using lude and violent language and imagery that I wish I protect you all from. Their message is of hatred and divisiveness, but inside at the Monsterball we preach love and unity. My request to all little monsters and public authority is to pay these hate criminals no mind. Do not interact with them, or try to fight. Do not respond to any of their provocation. Don’t waste your words, or feelings, no matter what you hear or see. You are more fortunate and blessed than they are, and in your heart just pray for them. Although I respect and do not judge anyone for their personal views on any politics or religion, this group in particular to me, is violent and dangerous. I wanted to make my fans aware of my views on how to approach, or rather not approach, these kinds of hate activists. Be inspired to ignore their ignorant message, and feel gratitude in your heart that you are not burdened or addicted to hate, as they are. X
Tonight love and hate met in St. Louis. And love outnumbered the hate, in poetic thousands. Hate left. But love stayed. + Together, we sang.”
