Apparently Satan roams about soldier's funerals and country music concerts seeking to devour someone a lot, because the Westboro Baptist Church picketed the Brad Paisley concert on Sunday with their purple and bedazzled signs.
Though Brad Paisley's fans came out in droves to his Kansas City, Missouri show on Sunday, June 3, the country crooner decided to take a selfie with a group of people who didn't attend the Cricket Wireless Amphitheater to celebrate his music. Protestors from the Westboro Baptist Church stood outside the concert venue with signs reading "God Hates Drunks," "Sin Breeds Violence," and "God H8s Your Stars." Paisley made his way out there and rounded up the protestors for an unusual selfie. "Westboro Baptist Selfie!! Or west-Burro(ass) selfie. Hopefully they can hear the show out here. We'll play loud," Paisley captioned the photo.
I could take this opportunity to make fun of the Westboro Baptist Church and Christianity in general, but I'm starting to feel sorry for these people. I mean, because when you have to cram your moral, religious, and scientific beliefs into a 1,600 page book that hasn't been updated in a while, I can see how you could paint yourself into a corner and miss a few things. Things like women, basic human biology, and carbon dating. The Bible doesn't allow any room for interpretation, you know, except for when you really want it to, so it's great they can have the best-selling fantasy novel of all time to point at when they expand it's figurative universe to fit their own narrative and agenda. But back to the point, why would you protest a Brad Paisley concert? There's no shitty music in hell, bruh. C'mon, now.
