The crazies from Westboro Baptist Church are at it again, this time taking to New York City where they plan to protest NYC Fashion Week.
According to church members the event is “Slutwalk extraordinaire” with one representative from the church proclaiming:
“The whole idea (of the) fashion industry is to make women look as whorish as possible and men look as effeminate as possible.”
The group will protest outside of the Lincoln Center’s tents on Saturday and that same rep tells the New York Post:
“All you are doing is teaching girls to be proud whores.” while adding, “Put some jeans on and fear God.”
Lincoln Center officials are already planning extra security to ensure that the Westboro crazies do not “upset” or “offend” the fashion friendly crowd.
Apparently journalists aren’t too worried about Westboro, with one fashion journalist notied:
“I would probably attack them if they said anything to me.”
While a model added:
“If they’re looking homely, they won’t fit in.”
Also on the roster for the Westboro Baptist Church this month, picketing a Foo Fighters concert in Kansas on September 16 and the New York Jets-Dallas Cowboys game.
I hope the Westboro people hold up a sign at the Foo Fighters contest that reads “God Hates Foo” or something just as ridiculous.
In the meantime why wasn’t the group protesting the Victoria Secret Fashion Show, I’m pretty sure most of those women were wearing far less clothing than what will be witnessed at New York City Fashion Week.
