Westboro Baptist Church to protest Carrie Underwood in Kansas City, Missouri

The always controversial, Topeka-based Westboro Baptist Church (WBC)  has put a target on former American Idol winner and country superstar Carrie Underwood and plan to picket her May 1 concert at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, according to the church’s website.

They say the Checotah, Oklahoma native “claims christianity and at the same time openly supports fag-marriage.”

They base their protest on some recent Carrie quotes concerning marriage:

“As a married person myself, I don’t know what it’s like to be told I can’t marry somebody I love, and want to marry. I can’t imagine how that must feel,” Underwood says. “I definitely think we should all have the right to love, and love publicly, the people that we want to love.”

“Above all, God wanted us to love others,” she adds. “It’s not about setting rules, or [saying] “everyone has to be like me”. No. We’re all different. That’s what makes us special. We have to love each other and get on with each other.”

In addition, they criticize her dress as a “Christian” woman and even take a jab at her for performing with country legend, Vince Gill, calling him an “adulterer”.

They say, “Carrie is an oxymoron – singing about God while blatantly disregarding every one of his commandments.”

This is not the first time

Carrie has been given a platform that should be used to glorify her God. Instead, she abuses this position by promoting sin and shame.

This is not the first time WBC went after the country music singer. Last December, they blamed  Underwood for the shootings at Sandy Hook elementary school in Connecticut. The group’s spokesperson claimed via Twitter that Underwood’s support of equal rights for same-sex marriage helped bring down God’s wrath upon the innocent victims.
