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. :)"

  3. To truly understand that the WBC is merely a particularly-pr-savvy family of hate mongers and by no means a church or even Christian, see the speech by estranged son, Nate Phelps here:
    They merely use Christianity as their toehold into legitimacy but are nothing more than a brainwashed group of abused children formed by their sick soiocpathic father into spewing his perversions.
    As far as I know, they make their money by suing people and property owners for "damages" when someone gets enragd and pops them or they "accidentally" fall down on someone's property. Note: Most of them are lawyers.

  5. These people are cowards. Homophobia and other prejudices stem from fear. They're just pathetic losers who cover up their fear of being unique with their stupid picket signs.

  7. Adam has numerous fans that follow his set live on the Idol Live tour (so far 40 concerts) via twitter, fan forums, and even live "cellcasts". Fans tweet mostly about whether he has Emo or Elvis hair, how many times he "microbates" the microphone during Whole Lotta Love, whether he hit certain glory notes, etc. But last night when they discovered that vid of the WBC they went beserk. Weeks ago on a previous WBC encounter, Adam was asked in an interview his feelings about seeing the sign "God Hates Fags", and he responded with "I think God hates Hate." So last night his fans on twitter and forums all got together to mass twitter him support and trend #Godhateshate at 10:30pm eastern (the time he finished his set), and sure enough it trended to #1 immediately. That's what Adam was responding to in his tweet. Go Adam!

  9. Oh MY God ! THEIR God is so hateful. Just can't believe there's such a god. And if there is, can't believe there are followers of such. No I take that back. There are and always will be stupid people. Just seriously hope that they are in the minority.

  10. Those people across the street last night are not God's people, they are cults and why can't it be stopped...Especially when we are there to see a wonderful entertainer...there is all kinds in the world and these nuts are the worst...I guess tho' it takes all kinds to make a world....The show was great and the singing of all was wonderful....I hope I can go to see Adam in concert one of these days...without signs outside....

  11. Ugh, let's stop giving these people even this much attention. According to their beliefs we are all going to hell anyway, so there is no real reason for them to protest, other than for the publicity.

  12. Obviously, the folks from WBC don't know how to love. I feel bad for them. Tolerance is something very beautiful that they do not have in their lives. They also will never know how many ways Adam has been gifted, touched and loved by God. He is precious and his talent renews my faith. Jesus was a Jew! These poor people are so ignorant. Hate destroys those that let it in their hearts. Please stop giving these people any press.

  13. While I give no credence to extremists such as these lost souls, it scares me to think of how they might "up the ante" once their familiar tactics no longer draw the media's attention. Typically these types of addictive personalities have "no boundaries"...pardon the pun.

  14. Wow, read the Bible, people.....God hates NO ONE!! He may not like the lifestyle, but God loves Adam and every other human being on this earth. Way to go, Adam, for being the down to earth, amazing person that you are. I can't wait to see you in concert. I'll be sure to scream extra loud for you. As far as those ridiculous losers go, maybe you should go to church more often and pray for yourselves. Stop the hate.

  15. I SWEAR TO FUCKING GOD I HATE THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. If God is a merciful being, then why do people believe that he HATES Gays? I thought he was the loveable force, and people are making him out to be hateful like Satan. GOD LOVES ALL HIS CHILDREN! Isn't that what they teach you in church? Sure, in the Bible it says that Homosexuality is wrong, but only God has the right to Judge. So, why do we against Adam? Fill your heart with love, people, not hatered.

    Love yall.

  17. Socially we are complex,and we always try to build systems and laws to make sense of it all.But there is always a paradox on!Me personally try to adopt,and except.Equal opportunity to all,live and let live! Please leave me alone with religion.....fact;Adam has to have a great security!It would be a greatest disgrace if anything would happened to him!His NOT a politician people!!He sings and entertains on a great level to make his fans happy

  21. There is no point in even trying to argue with these freaks. Every time they protest they actually help our cause. They are nothing more than a joke. Remember, they WANT you to be offended and shocked. People are just laughing instead.

  22. I like the comment questioning where these folks get their money..Hell they protested a local High School GSA. Yeah they may seem like the lunatic fringe, but I have to put them in the same category with the Roman Catholic Church, Church of Latter Day Saints and Focus on the Family etc. The latter mentioned groups' tactics are a bit more sophisticated and come from very deep pockets filled with lots of cash, the money they pour into defeating gay rights issues and the rhetoric they profess. Is it hate too?

  23. Who is the idiot reporter who laughed with this hate group. They invited him to join them,he sounded like he was thinking about it.. The press should not give these haters the attention ,that's what they want inorder to spread their message of hate.Reward the positive,ignore the negative. Reporters like this one we don't need.

  24. I don't believe in god, so I couldn't care less if he hates me or loves me.

    p.s. the guy with the jesus loves the gays sign is hot!
