Westboro Baptist Church Versus Foo Fighters!
WHILE the Foo Fighters have yet to kill or paste a single ‘Foo’, they’ve got a battle pressing. After they released their ‘Hot Buns’ video, they horsed around in the showers of a gas station, dressed like truckers and playing the whole homo-erotic thing for laughs.
And it is funny.
However, profoundly not-laughing are the pickled foetuses that make up the numbers at the Westboro Baptist Church who are going after The Nicest Band In Rock.
Naturally, WBC go after lots of high-profile people, mainly because they clearly don’t mean what they say and would rather have lots of attention, rather than doing some good charitable work in the field, rather than shouting ‘GOD HATES FAGS’ at rock stars.
The video which has got their absolutely straight, god-fearing goat, is the ‘Hot Buns’ viral designed to promote Grohl & Co’s forthcoming North American tour. Here’s what the WBC think about it all, in their own words:
WBC to picket the Foo Fighters at the Sprint Center. The entertainment industry is a microcosm of the people in this doomed nation: hard-hearted, Hell-bound, and hedonistic. These people have a platform and should be using it to encourage obedience to God; instead they teach every person who will listen all things contrary to Him: fornication, adultery, idolatry, fags. The people in this nation have sinned away their day of grace and have so enraged their God that you are seeing new outpourings of His wrath continually. We will be there to remind you that the day of your destruction is upon you, even as you vainly seek comfort in the frivolities of this life.
The LORD hath rejected and forsaken the generation of his wrath. [They] have done evil in my sight, saith the LORD…And the carcasses of this people shall be meat for the fowls of the heaven, & for the beasts of the earth…Then will I cause to cease from the cities of Judah, and from the streets of Jerusalem, the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride: for the land shall be desolate. Jeremiah 7:29-34
Your doom is coming, america! Repent or Perish!
Let us all perish in the doom of an imagined God while we all have a chuckle at this video. Warning: Contains some sweet, sweet ass.
