Rock group Foo Fighters pokes fun at Westboro Baptist Church
« on: September 19, 2011, 07:17:55 PM »
This past Friday in Kansas City, Missouri, the rock band Foo Fighters were all set to play a scheduled concert. The Westboro Baptist Church, led by Fred Phelps and known for their provocative anti-gay placards, held a protest. The Foo Fighters, in turn, protested right back.

From the article:
Quote
Band members jumped onto a flatbed truck, sporting costumes they wore in a recent video parody, parked across the street from the protest, and sang "Hot Buns," CNN affiliate KSHB reported.

It might not make them better as a band (though their rendition of Down in the Park wasn't half bad), but nonetheless, good show, boys.  Good show.

I live in the KC metro area, Westboro-they so get my gander up!    While I don't like the Foo Fighters style of music, they get a thumbs up from me. Kind of wished I had been down there in the Power and Light district to see it !(And I hate that entertainment district)

This was incredible!!!

Love the Foo.
Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.

— Chrysostom

 ;D I know.  Way to take on a tiny and almost universally despised group.  That takes some gumption.  I wonder if they're anti-cancer as well. Heroes they are.
