The Westboro Baptist Church announced Tuesday that it will be protesting outside Lady Gaga's St. Louis concert January 7.
"'Art' and 'fashion' are the euphemisms, the guise under which proud whore Lady Gaga teaches rebellion against God," reads a press release issued by the controversial Topeka, Kan.-based church.
The church, headed by Pastor Fred Phelps and infamous for its "God Hates Fags" placards, will demonstrate at Gaga's concert with "God Hates Lady Gaga" signs.
"We will be going to her concert with placards reading God Hates Lady Gaga to inform people that they will be going to hell too if they listen to her messages," said attorney and member Shirley Phelps-Roper, reports Radar Online. "According to the Bible homosexuality is an abomination and she has to shut her filthy mouth and stop promoting it."
Westboro has organized similar protests this year outside of an American Idol concert featuring Adam Lambert and at the Academy Awards in response to Sean Penn's nomination for Milk.
