The Most Awesome Response to Westboro Baptist Church, Ever

Written by scott on July 22nd, 2014

Panic at the DiscoThe band Panic! At the Disco turned a WBC protest into an HRC fundraiser in a brilliant response to the homophobic group’s pathetic rally outside the band’s concert in Kansas City.

Queerty reports:

The Bible-thumping gang that just loves to hate recently put out the most nails-on-a-chalk-board version of Panic At The Disco’s pop-punk anthem “I Write Sins Not Tragedies,” which they call “You Love Sin What a Tragedy.”… They also announced plans to picket Panic’s show in Kansas City, Mo this past weekend. Because apparently there weren’t any bigger sinners to harass that day. Well the band fired back in just about the prefect way imaginable. Frontman Brendon Urie (who is married to a woman but doesn’t shy away from talking about past experiences sleeping with men) and co. posted this message to Twitter, pledging a $20 donation to HRC for every Westboro protester.

Only 13 showed up, so the band upped their donation from $260 to an even grand. How awesome is that? They also donated 5% of their merchandise sales for the show. Love these guys!
