Hatemongers to protest Lady Gaga Show in St. Louis next week

As first seen on Show Me No Hate

The Hatemongers--Westboro Baptist Church (www.godhatesfagsdotcom) in Topeka, Kansas are at it again, or at least threatening to protest another event. This time it's the sold out Lady Gaga concert in St. Louis next week. Last month this same group announced that they would be protesting outside of the Springfield (Illinois) Theatre Centre's live production of "The Laramie Project" . However, the group never showed up and there was no disruption. Will they really come to St. Louis?

KSDK - An outspoken pastor says he's coming to St. Louis to protest when pop star Lady Gaga comes to perform at the Fabulous Fox Theater. Lady Gaga is set to perform at the sold out show January 7th, and if you have tickets, expect to see plenty of police at the show.

Recently a heated cross-country online battle of words has ignited between fans of the eccentric music star and supporters of a minister that some say is "full of hate".

Reverend Fred Phelps of Topeka, Kansas' Westboro Baptist Church announced he and his supporters are coming to St. Louis to protest against Lady Gaga. Phelps describes Gaga as immoral and disagrees with her personal politics.

St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay has been quoted online talking about the protest. His office along with the Fox Theater management say there will be plenty of security the night of the show.

Mayor Slay's position is that more people that want to come to St. Louis and spend money, the merrier. There is no word on how many people will come to support Reverend Phelps, but as of yesterday no city paperwork had been filed to legally hold the demonstration.
