OCT 14, 2013 – Laura Lush, punk rock bass player for the band "Get Shot" that mixes music and pornography, masturbated on the front lawn of the Westboro Baptist Church to protest their hatred and unhealthy attitudes towards sex by the Westboro Baptist Church. In a statement Laura said, "The Phelps family and Westboro Baptist Church are ridiculous and do nothing except spread hate and cause controversy. As a bisexual woman and a bass player of a ridiculous punk band, I want to spread my legs and cause controversy." If you are aged 18 or older, and are not a prude, watch the masturbation video below.

SEP 27, 2013 – They have been picketing pop star concerts like Lady Gaga recently, but now Westboro Baptist Church has been picketing the concerts of country music artists lately, over the issue of divorce and remarriage. In their sick and twisted logic, the reason why gay marriage is being legalized across the land is because both Vince Gill and Blake Shelton got divorced and then remarried, and that leads to Sodom and Gomorra, civilization crumbles, yadda yadda yadda. We have had legal gay marriage here in DC for years, and the sky has not fallen.
During a Kansas City, MO concert on September 11, 2013, Vince Gill confronted and talked to the protesters outside the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. The vile protesters were saying that "Jesus spoke against divorce…", but Gill responded by pointing out how Jesus also talked about "forgiveness, about grace. You guys have one of that."

Last Wednesday, when WBC announced they were going to picket Blake Shelton's concert because he divorced his first wife and remarried Miranda Lambert, he Tweeted back, "Blow Me".

AUG 22, 2012 – Responding to the hateful Westboro Baptist Church rally at her Lincoln, Nebraska concert back on August 18, 2013, popular artist Ke$ha sent her dancers to perform fabulous dance moves and love to counter the hate from WBC. Unfortunately, WBC had their awful parody of Ke$ha's song, "We R Who We R" in the background where they changed the lyrics. Listen to the real Ke$ha song here.

We blogged about this the other night, and now a full version of the whole event staged by the Foo Fighters to drown out the Westboro Baptist Church clowns from a flatbed truck is out.
In a statement the Foo Fighters said, "On Aug. 30th, 2011 Westboro Baptist Church called for a picket of the Foo Fighters show in Kansas City. We had a little something up our sleeve. God Bless America."
When the Foo Fighters were in town to play a show in Kansas City, Missouri, they decided to pay a visit to a Westboro Baptist Church protest and let their feelings known as to how they feel about them and their stances on homosexuality. They rented a flat-bed truck, set up amps, got into costume, and drove right up to the protest and played loud music and put on their little show. The protesters were obviously drowned out and flustered, some taking the time to check their text messages. Watch the video below:
