WATCH: 'God Hates Fags' Gals Protest Adam Lambert at Idol Concert


The Westboro Baptist Church hit up an American Idol concert in Kansas City yesterday to protest the existence of Adam Lambert. They were met by at least a couple of counterprotesters, who got them on record.

Said Megan Phelps-Roper, while a few others sang some of their own tunes about how "Brokeback Mountain" has ruined America: "These are a bunch of rebels against God and they're teaching rebellion against the standards and commandments of God."

Tweeted Lambert in response late last night: "Thank you all for the support. Love overcomes hate. Love has no color. Love has no orientation. All is love. :)"

  1. Interesting how the camera pans right past the "Jews Killed Jesus" poster--twice. Seems the easiest way to discredit these wackos is to show how much they hate everyone

  2. These people must spend big $$ on travel. They're coming to VT tomorrow for the first day of legal marriage -- protesting at statehouse, schools, and a synagogue. Certainly they are equal opportunity haters! Most people plan to just ignore them or give money for however long they're here.

  3. When gay men are famous, these psychos flip out. That's a win/win for me.

  4. WHERE does the money come from?
    Does anyone have a link to a serious investigative piece rather than all this side-show silliness? (But thanks Towleroad for keeping us informed)
    Operation Rescue took millions from the private finds of the former Domino heirs. Jesse Helms took cash from beer distributors. That led to boycotts and dragging the "Silent Right" haters out into the open. I would love to learn where the Westboro Wacko's get their *mad* money.

  6. Great news, actually. Finally, Generation Z...or whoever his primary demographic is...might finally get that homohate is real and get off their More Liberated Than Thou asses, stop Twittering their lives away, and help do something about it.

  7. This is just heart breaking to think that God could hate anything. I just don't get this kind of bias. These people need psychological help. They are really warped. I love what Adam said. Love overcomes!! Peace to all.

  9. You must read their website to get a full understanding. It is rambling hate with bible passages thrown in as if that would legitimize them. I agree with other posters: where do they get the money, that would tell a lot.. I think this goes beyond free speech and goes into hate crime.

  10. OK I know god loves me gay or not but I think he hates that girls hair the WBC youngster what is going with her hair line freaky

  11. I find the protesters from Westboro Baptist Church to be obscenely rude. Judgments come in all shapes and sizes. When I was young, a girl who would wear "short-shorts" while representing her church would be a scandal. Leave Adam alone. If you want to influence the world with your faith, be a person who lives an exemplary life to be admired, not as a person who wants her 15 minutes of fame by degrading another human being who has never done anything to her. Shame on you!

  12. If God hated fags, why would they keep winning or nearly winning Idol competitions??

  13. As KEVINVT noted, those busy traveling crazies are coming to VT tomorrow (when VT's marriage equality law becomes reality) and are targeting Montpelier High School. Since the Phelps clan likes nothing better than to engage (as if it's possible to engage with lunatics), the high school kids are engaging in a different way, one that does not benefit the haters:

  14. JESUS instituted a religion of LOVE excluding no one, even includes loving our enemies and loving all especially the littlest brethren.
    And JESUS Himself said whoever has no sin cast the first stone and to forgive 70 times 7.
    And JESUS said do not judge lest you shall be judge by the same measure
    These protesters/haters are followers of their man made religion's own FALSE PROPHET.
    They proclaim they're religious but have no spirituality at all.
    GOD looks only at the heart where LOVE resides and where MOTIVATION originates.
    He sees only the motivation of everything we do.
    It should only be LOVE, MERCY, COMPASSION and CHARITY for ALL.

  15. The WBC have become anti-semites in recent years too.

    Like others have said, Adam Lambert is both gay and Jewish and that is why they brought their anti-semitic posters too.

    It was the XXX Church that was counter-protesting the Phelps clan.

    Not really

    1st u must prove that jesus ever existed in the 1st place as vs just being a myth

    2nd....jesus myth called all non Jews DOGS unworthy of the gifts brought for the chosen children and only when the gentile woman accepted and admited she was a DOG "don't even the dogs eat the crumbs from the table...." flat out admits jesus myth is right in calling her a dog that he laughs and grants a boon of healing her daughter

    Sorry, Jesus myth if by some chance you can prove even existed...the teachings ascribed to it do not include loving gentiles. Gentiles becoming xtians and included in the myth's love wasn't till decades later when Paul was around and paul if also a real person was DECADES!!!!!!!!!!! after the fact of the supposed jesus myth

  19. Well, to be ugly & stupid is one thing, but deliberately hateful . . . I have to say, God is probly not goin' to be happy w/dat!

  20. Maybe Iran's recent selected president Ahmadinejad gives them money to hate. I don't see any difference between these haters and haters in middle-east. One thing these religious fanatics do is to make others to turn away from God!

  21. Don't use religion to hate gays.

    Just hate gays because they are gay!

  22. "Do not judge, or you will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." -Matthew 7: 2

  23. At this point those CHINOs (Christian In Name Only) have reduced themselves to comic relief.

    We should have posters saying:

    God detests HATE.

    God detests CHINOs.

    God detests bad hair.

  25. you people who protest are hypocrites of the smarmiest have no clue about christianity which promotes LOVE as jesus loved everyone..god does not GET MAD! you are deluded and a bunch of addicts to a ridiculous cause hiding from your own true selves and problems...if you want a cause how about starvation and disease? you ARE a disease...go away!
