The crazy Westboro Baptist Church has been laughed out of two protests recently by none other than Lady Gaga and the comic book “geeks” at San Diego Comic-Con. Props to Gaga and Daddycatcher’s fellow geeks!
On July 17th, the Church targeted Lady Gaga’s St. Louis concert. Gaga caught wind of the protest and wrote this on her Facebook page:
I would like to make my little monster fans aware of a protest being held outside the Monsterball in St.Louis tonight. Although we have had protesters before, as well as fundamentalists at the show, this group of protesters are hate criminals and preach using lewd and violent language and imagery that I wish I protect you all from. Their message is of hatred and divisiveness, but inside at the Monsterball we preach love and unity.
My request to all little monsters and public authorites is to pay these hate criminals no mind. Do not interact with them, or try to fight, Do not respond to any of their provocation. Don’t waste your words, or feelings, no matter what you hear or see you are more fortunate and blessed than they are, and in your heart just pray for them. Although I respect and do not judge anyone for their personal views on any politics or religion, this group in particular to me, is violent and dangerous I wanted to make my fans aware of my views on how to approach, or rather not approach, these kinds of hate activists.
Be inspired to ignore their ignorant message, and feel gratitude in your heart that you are not burdened or addicted to hate, as they are. X
And then yesterday, the Church took to San Diego’s Comic-Con and was met with by a group of counter protesters dressed as superheroes and sci-fi characters.
Daddycatcher is pretty proud that people are battling hate with a really powerful weapon…love!!!
