The Westboro Baptist Church, who recently protested a Less Than Jake concert in Pensacola, Florida, have announced on their website that they will be protesting Taking Back Sunday’s June 18th concert in Seattle, Washington.
The radical group posted their reasoning on their website:
“WBC will picket Taking Back Sunday at The Showbox Concert with a message for those in attendance, to wit: God Hates Fags, and God Hates Fag-Enablers; ergo, God Hates america and america is Doomed! This nation is awash in filthy sin and idolatry, including your pop stars like Taking Back Sunday who have the ear of millions and refuse to use that platform God gave them to teach obedience to God’s standards. If they opened their mouths to warn you that your sins are taking you to hell, their concerts would be empty, as would their pockets and bank accounts. They will give an account to God for their failure to do their duty.”
In other news, Taking Back Sunday released the newest song, “This Is All Now,” from their upcoming self-titled album, which will be released June 28th.
