Westboro Baptist Church calls One Direction 'perverted, sin-chasing freaks'
According to multiple reports, the church -- and that term is being used very lightly here -- released a statement entitled "God hates f** enablers," saying of One Direction:
"WBC will picket this perverted pop boy band from the UK who claim to be the world's #1 band. Indeed, they are a perfect representation of this filthy world and the sin-chasing, f**-enabling, God-hating, Christ-rejecting UK who has banned WBC from preaching within her borders. These freaks and their fans think it's funny for these five perverts to grab each other's a**es on stage. They glamorize sin and make a mock of God's standards. Their one purpose is to encourage the youth of this generation to pursue every lust their evil hearts can imagine."
Also credited to Westboro Baptist is a cringe-worthy audio file being passed around online that parodies One Direction's 2012 hit, "One Thing." The lyrics include:
"Get all those lies right out of your head
Focus on obeying instead
You know, you know, you know what it is
You need to do that one thing
Obeying that one thing
Something's gonna give soon
You didn't care to know his name
We need our picket signs now
Because you forgot that one thing"
Yikes ... Taylor Swift, the queen of country pop and ex-girlfriend to 1D's Harry Styles was recently singled out by Westboro for being a "proud whore." Apparently the group is not a fan of Swifty's "fornicating." But not to worrym Styles and company: At this point, it's probably safe to say, if Westboro Baptist Church is picketing you, you must have really made it.
