Panic At The Disco battle lunatic church fringe
added: 28 Jul 2014 // by: Music-News.com Newsdesk
Panic At The Disco turned a Westboro Baptist Church protest around to their advantage by using the church to help raise funds for the Human Rights Campaign.
The Human Rights Campaign works for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equal rights.
The lunatic fringe of Westboro Baptist Church announced that they would protest Panic At The Disco's appearance in Kansas City this week. The madcap and offensive Church went on the attack against Panic At The Disco over their song 'I Write Sins Not Tragedies'.
'Today @WBCSays is going to picket us. For every member of WBC that actually shows up we will donate $20 to @HRC', Panic At The Disco tweeted,
Maybe that scared Westboro Baptist Church off. Only 13 members turned up. 'Thank you @WBCSays for the update on the total amount you donated to @HRC today. $20X13= weak. We're going to make it an even $1000,' Panic At The Disco posted afterwards.
Panic At The Disco also donated 5% of proceeds from their merch stand to HRC causing Westboro Baptist Church to cause a sizeable cash donation go the way of a gay and lesbian rights group.
Westboro Baptist Church is the vile, hate fuelled ugly side of humanity. The obscene members of the organisation also recently protested outside a Paul McCartney concert because of the former Beatle 'a serial adultery'.
