Fred Phelps | Lady Gaga | News | Shirley Phelps-Roper

Listen: Megan Phelps-Roper and Westboro Baptist Church's Epic Cover of Lady Gaga's 'Telephone', Called 'Ever Burn'

Well, maybe "epic" is a bit of hyperbole.

You know, they had so much success with their version of "Poker Face" (it's here if you missed it) they had to get this one out quickly, because it's headed with a bullet to the top of the Evangelical Top 40.

Megan Here's a sample of the lyrical brilliance:

Shut up, shut up, Rebel
You talk; God don’t hear a thing.
All you got is lust, no will to just obey, obey
Wha-wha-what did you say?
You think God loves your praying?
He hates all you do
Cause you love fornicating
F-fornicating
F-fornicating
He hates all you do
Cause you love fornicating

No hesitation; you got more perversion to display
But there’s no part of you ya haven’t pimped already
You should’ve planned for curses from the God you disobey
Now he hates all you do cause you love fornicating (Ugh!)

Stop prayin’, stop prayin’, God will not hear you anymore
You taught the boys & the girls to be proud whores
Stop prayin’, stop prayin’, God will not hear you anymore
You taught the boys & the girls to be proud whores

Clip and lyrics, AFTER THE JUMP...

Shut up, shut up, Rebel
You talk; God don’t hear a thing.
All you got is lust, no will to just obey, obey
Wha-wha-what did you say?
You think God loves your praying?
He hates all you do
Cause you love fornicating
F-fornicating
F-fornicating
He hates all you do
Cause you love fornicating

No hesitation; you got more perversion to display
But there’s no part of you ya haven’t pimped already
You should’ve planned for curses from the God you disobey
Now he hates all you do cause you love fornicating (Ugh!)

Stop prayin’, stop prayin’, God will not hear you anymore
You taught the boys & the girls to be proud whores
Stop prayin’, stop prayin’, God will not hear you anymore
You taught the boys & the girls to be proud whores

Just stop prayin’ to Him; He’s busy!
Just stop prayin’ to Him.

Can pray if you want, but you got no hope
Only hell where you will forever burn
Go, devil spawn, you just keep pushin’ on
To the hell where you will forever burn

Can pray if you want, but you got no hope
Only hell where you will forever burn
Go, devil spawn, you just keep pushin’ on
To the hell where you will forever burn

Boy, the way you fake pray all the time
Will just kill soldiers faster
Spread that oil faster
Bring the fire faster
You should’ve listened to our words
Instead you brought disaster
Praying cuz this is dire
Sorry, He will not answer

Doesn’t just abhor you,
God’s now your enemy
Now you have got no hope
He’s deaf to your desperate pleas

Sometimes I feel like it is to myself I’m talkin’
But you will heed these words or get your own GodSmackin’
your own GodSmackin’
your own GodSmackin’
You will heed these words or get your own GodSmackin’

Stop prayin’, stop prayin’, God will not hear you anymore
You taught the boys & the girls to be proud whores
Stop prayin’, stop prayin’, God will not hear you anymore
You taught the boys & the girls to be proud whores

Stop prayin’, stop prayin’, God will not hear you anymore
You taught the boys & the girls to be proud whores
Stop prayin’, stop prayin’, God will not hear you anymore
You taught the boys & the girls to be proud whores

Just stop prayin’ to him; He’s busy!
Just stop prayin’ to him.

Can pray if you want, but you got no hope
Only hell where you will forever burn
Go, devil spawn, you just keep pushin’ on
To the hell where you will forever burn

Can pray if you want, but you got no hope
Only hell where you will forever burn
Go, devil spawn, you just keep pushin’ on
To the hell where you will forever burn

Forever burn
For- Forever burn
Go, devil spawn, you just keep pushin’ on
To the hell where you will forever burn
Forever burn
For- Forever burn
Go, devil spawn, you just keep pushin’ on
To the hell where you will forever burn

We’re sorry, the God you’re trying to reach won’t hear your crap at this time
Please shut your trap and never try again

  2. This is in desperate need of some Autotune. Just sayin'.

  3. I agree John.

  4. The most annoying thing about this girl's covers is that you can really hear how much she's GIVING IT ALL in those vocals, really pushing it and trying to mimic GaGa's great voice. It's obvious she's actually a fan of GaGa, but since her religious bullshit makes her feel bad for it she figures the only way she can "get away" with knowing (and liking) the songs is to cover them and change the words.

    Growing up in the South, anytime a pastor made the "not Adam & STEVE!" crack, the entire congregation howled with laughter and applause, every single time as if that level of wit and genius were groundbreaking. And the pastor would just beam and glow at all the adoration, really pleased with himself. It's the same type of thing I see with Megan Phelps, she's not trying to honor any words of God. She wants applause.

  5. The Phelps clan is a blight that needs to be muzzled, or just downright taken out. The hatred and ignorance they spread is pathetic and disgusting.

    If there is a hell, these monsters are in for a rude awakening.

  6. Oh John, lighten up.

  7. this cunt is such a media whore. she craves the spotlight even if is just for her brand of hate speech.these people are not newsworthy just pathetic and people must stop covering their every move. the only thing that should get widespread coverage is their funerals and the sooner the better.that will be a time for celebration.

  8. Dont pay attention to this whore and her family of whores.

  9. What do you suppose would happen to the small, unimportant group of misguided assholes if they simply got no publicity, no coverage, no press, no blog post, and no reaction from anyone?

    I'm guessing eventually, they'd just dry up and blow away.

    As long as they're getting the attention they'll continue to get support and perhaps money from like minded people. Take away their free publicity and make them pay for the coverage. Let's see how long they last.

  10. Someone needs a copy of Stephen Sondheim's upcoming book on lyrics.

    All those bad rhymes make Baby Jesus cry more than Lady Gaga ever will.

  11. Someone had way too much time on her hands...

    Posted by: S. | Jun 2, 2010 10:26:25 AM


  12. why do we even call them a church? just call them a cult.

    Posted by: dattexas | Jun 2, 2010 10:27:06 AM


  13. I didn't realize they still had those karaoke recording studios in shopping malls anymore.

  14. I really wish you would stop posting crap about the Phelps clan. They are old news, they will never stop what they're doing, they have nothing new to say (even this shit), and learning about their antics first thing in the morning over coffee does absolutely nothing to enrich our lives, our knowledge or our psyche except to create thoughts of murder and dismemberment. I read this and all I want to do is put a bullet through her brain, and I would prefer not to have those thoughts at all. Please, Andy, cease and desist with anything Phelps.

  15. Why are you giving this person attention at all? I suppose we're supposed to laugh at it, right? I find it very upsetting.

  16. WBC is full of closeted 'mos and closeted Lady Gaga fans.

  17. Seeing as Lady Gaga is on the abstinence bandwagon, I think they're missing their mark.

    Posted by: Dusty | Jun 2, 2010 11:00:02 AM


  18. I agree with Jim. Andy, please stop reporting on these people. I'm not trying to censor the site. I love it. But I don't see why we need to ehar about every single thing a group of people who will always hate us do. It just gives them a bigger presence in our lives...whereas if we don't hear about them and nobody talks about them, they lose a lot of the power and influence they crave. By posting anything they have to say, you're actually working for them and furthering their message and their hate.

  19. Whatever it takes!

    Posted by: Bruce in Tampa | Jun 2, 2010 11:50:13 AM


  20. I agree with Jim, Brian and everyone who is wondering why the Phelps Cult is constantly supplied with the attention they crave. They are some of the most successful media baiters out there. Every article written about them, every camera pointed at them, every protest against them empowers them further, confirming their martyr complex.

  21. Please take this off this site. You're giving these people attention and making them think it's ok just by giving them viewers.

    I find it irresponsible of a gay news group to show this at all and think it's disturbing you thought of this as news instead of the rantings of a horrific family.

    SHAME ON YOU TOWLEROAD!

  22. Hmm, killing soldiers faster? That's infuriating.

    Posted by: Reno | Jun 2, 2010 12:26:02 PM


  23. I absolutely LOVE the Westboro clan -- they are camp in the truest sense, because true camp requires that, at some level, you really believe in the thing you are a cruel parody of.

    Anybody have a link to the song that still works?

    Posted by: Distingue Traces | Jun 2, 2010 12:31:43 PM


  24. There's nothing these clowns can do or say that I would consider 'newsworthy' (short of an apology or mass suicide).

    Let them test the limits of free speech all they want. Just *PLEASE* stop helping them with free press.

    When something happens *TO* them... sure, please let us know... but enough of echoing their publicity stunts already. =(

  25. Andy, keep reporting on this cult. They do more to make the less vehement anti-gay religionists uncomfortable. When my anti-gay aunt voiced her disdain for their funeral protests, I told her that now she knows how gays feel.

    Haven't heard a peep out of her since.
