The WBC protesting concerts

Alright, protests at concerts are nothing new. Any of us who have seen Dead To The World, Marilyn Manson's 1998 tour video, have seen that the crowds just take this in stride, some giving the protestors the finger shouting obscenities, others ignoring them, and still other shouting "Jesus loves you!" and waving. Now, from the WBC's point of view I could understand why they would protest a Marilyn Manson show.

I really don't understand what they were doing in April when they protested at a Less Than Jake show. LTJ aren't really the kinds of guys who get upset about naysayers and hatemongers. Ska fans are too famously nice to do any backlashing. Oh, maybe the WBC heard "All My Best Friends Are Metalheads" where LTJ talks about accepting people no matter what, and loving one another just because. That seems like the kind of thing the WBC would protest. When LTJ's drummer Vinnie Fiorello tweeted about the incident he included a hash tag that said "" So maybe that's it, too.

I checked the WBC's protest schedule, the next protest at a concert they're planning is in August at a Katy Perry concert. Yeah, Katy Perry made a fun pop song about experimenting with lesbianism. And I think Katy Perry experiments with lesbianism about as often as Clutch rides elephants. I'm amazed they don't protest Clutch because Hannibal rode elephants across the alps, and Hannibal killed himself.
