Todays issue of Things Westboro Baptist Church Hates Now features a bubbly, blonde sprite with a powerful voice: Oklahoma native and Broadway icon Kristin Chenoweth.
The church/hate group well, less than 10 of them anyway protested at Chenoweths Oct. 2 concert at Kansas State University.
In a press release shared on BroadwayWorld.com, Westboro quoted the Bible and accused Chenoweth of teaching fornication because not one of [her] 10 uber-public relationships was with [her] husband apparently its now a sin to have boyfriends.
Thats not the way you will probably find someone you might want to marry, after all.
The press release also said that its the entertainment industrys fault that America bows down to the fags and same-sex marriage is legal.
Someday, maybe Westboro will learn that its almost impossible to humiliate people who are better at writing insults than you are.
BroadwayWorld.com writer Michael Dale stood up for Chenoweth and responded to Westboros attack by quoting musical greats Fred Ebb, Cole Porter and the prophet Ira Gershwin who preached about communication, understanding and using a critical eye when reading.
You write, God Hates Proud Sinners, so why does God allow Gypsy to get revived so often? he asked.
Dale also said the Westboro members should go see The Christians, a play by Lucas Hnath about a megachurch and its pastors malleable mind.
Its all about good people having contrasting views of what The Bible means. Youll hate it, he wrote.
The followers of Westboro obviously dont know that Chenoweth rose to stardom after originating the role of goody-two-shoes Glinda and singing No One Mourns the Wicked on Broadway for nearly a year.
