Westboro Baptist Church targets Radiohead

Westboro Baptist Church targets Radiohead - MSN Music News

Quote:
According to the band's site At Ease Web, the ever-disgusting presence issued a mandate on their website justifying the protest, a screed that read:

"You have stolen the Word of God from your people and children, and as a sorry substitute, you prop up lightness and lies. You try to get the people to look at the nonsense and not at the wrath of God that abides upon them. "Look at the circus monkey over there and the fluffy setting, blah, blah..." Meanwhile, God is undoing this nation and effecting all of your lives, with the moth that quietly eats the very fabric of your national garment. Radiohead is just such an event. Freak monkeys with mediocre tunes keeps you busy and focused by lightness. It changes nothing, God is undoing and digging up and throwing down this nation."

They "target" everything.


That's not "targeting".


That's "everything ... ing."

Their main targets are news cameras and microphones.

The Westboro Baptist Church have expanded on the reasons behind a recent decision to picket Radiohead.

Radiohead are a band who have touched countless lives around the globe, with the band's ethical stance helping to promote liberal ideals. Which is perhaps why the Westboro Baptist Church singled them out recently.

Deciding to picket a performance by the group, the American organisation made their feelings known. To the general bemusement of everyone around Radiohead -especially Nigel Godrich - the Westboro Baptist Church launched a protest as the Oxford giants performed a show in Kansas City.

VICE tracked down Westboro Baptist Church member Steve Drain for a few thoughts on the protest.
