The infamous religious extremists of Westboro Baptist Church have plans to spread their homophobic hate and racism once again this summer in Sin City. The group stated they have plans to picket at one of the biggest EDM festivals of the year, Electric Daisy Carnival.
For those of you fortunate enough to be unfamiliar with the group, the Westboro Baptist Church is a group of right-wing extremists based in Kansas. They are known for picketing the funerals of soldiers, their favored “God Hates Fags” slurs and signs, and their rampant racism. They have now apparently turned their attentions to dance music culture hedonism.
Westboro Baptist Church spokesperson Lisa Greer stated,
“[Electric Daisy Carnival] is just another trashy haven for inappropriate sexual activity and rampant drug use. In addition to the rampant drug use and inappropriate heterosexual sexual activity, this festival openly supports and welcomes gay attendees. We believe that same-sex marriages are being openly condoned and sanctioned on festival grounds, we hope to thwart these blatant sins against Jesus Christ – our mission is to educate.”
Greer says that the church has bought 78 three-day tickets and will be in “full protest mode”. The officially classified “Hate Group” seems to be operating in full-swing despite the death of its head-racist Fred Phelps in 2014.
Refusing to sleep in the city of sin, the members will be commuting to the festival from the nearby suburb of Henderson, Nevada.
