It’s Too Bad Westboro’s Megan Phelps Didn’t Get a Chance to Perform On Stage With Lady Gaga

So the stupids at the Westboro Baptist Church went to the Lady Gaga concert on Saturday in St. Louis. But they weren’t there to dance along to the choreography of “Bad Romance”; they were there to wave around their silly signs. And The Gags totally took their bait.

“There appears to be little to no hope for her, but who is to say what is doing with the souls of those who may be swarming to listen to your less-than-beautiful singing program?,” Westboro wrote of the singer on its website. Fired back Gaga: “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.” And: “Tonight love and hate met in St. Louis. And love outnumbered the hate, in poetic thousands. Hate left. But love stayed. + Together, we sang.”

Ooh, snap! Them’s be fighting words. Like these!

    Religion has Westboro and we have GetEquals. Everyone needs their own misfits.

    @Jason_Activist: Please just because you want to sit on the couch and let Democrats take your money while not doing adamn thing be my guest. It’s nice that GetEqual is actually trying to hold our supposed allies to their word.

    Hmm… Not that I’m the Church-going type, but if I were GOD I would have to think that Gaga and her fans are far more Christian than Fred Phelps atrocious, inbred, hateful… cult.

    @jason “activist” – I suppose your activism includes adding your name to an email list saying you support gay marriage. To compare getequal to westboro is simply ridiculous.

    Just curious, Both the White House and Gay Inc. said that were were not going to see any movement on DADT this year. Remember, earlier the head of HRC told us not to comment or judge Obamas progress on gay rights until 8 years from now. Get Equal on the other hand, goes on the warpath and pressures are supposed friends in Congress and Congress backs down to the pressure, introduces a bill and it passed, with reluctant support from the White House. HRC did NOTHING for that, until in the few weeks prior to the vote, they finally realized that this bill was going to be introduced and they tried to jump on the bandwagon. If everybody had listened to HRC, and not bothered our “Friends in Congress” because they had more important stuff to worry about, nothing would have happened. And now, that we have a bill that passed, HRC is having boggers, and it’s other folks attack Get Equal.

    HRC and their minions remind me of the person at your job, that never does anything, but tries to badmouth the worker who stays late to finish projects because they are afraid that people will notice that they themselves are useless.

    GetEQUAL is not Westboro – people support Westboro. GetEQUAL is already out of business.

    @Mark in Dallas: A.K.A AndrewW:
    You’re right: WBC has support: I agree that GE is slipping down a rung with every passing week. Who are they inspiring these days? Not me. The people counterdemming @ NOM tourstops are doing the better job — & most of them are volunteers……..
