    Huh, and they didn't manage to connect her with the gay agenda? Something is happening...

    Also, good luck getting past the Taylor Swift fans. :p

    Jamesy wins the thread! :D

    Seriously, is there anything or anybody they HAVEN'T yet picketed? At this point I think they're just drawing random names out of a hat.

    ...Maybe if we ignore them, they'll go away.

    I think ignoring them is a marvelous idea. Wish we could get the press on board with that.

    Why'd they have to be so mean?

    Sure, she sings about all the guys who supposedly have wronged her, but she doesn't sing about sex and is hardly the pop star that most people think of as being a "whore."

    I'm guessing they chose her because she's so popular and will get them the most attention.

    I'm betting that Taylor's publicist is secretly please about this because this will reinforce the idea that everyone is so mean to Tayor. I'm sick of Taylor playing victim, but even I am disgusted by this.

    The WBC are in Omaha quite a bit since we are relatively close to them. Our local press doesn't cover them anymore. :)

    I think this is their desperate way of getting attention and being relevant again. Their usual procedures are failing to capture the public's attention anymore, so why not protest a mega star like Taylor Swift who has a devoted fanbase and is extensively covered by the media. They're just media whores like any other fame monger.

    I wish they would find important issues to protest about - like Justin Biebers tour. Just because he is annoying little twat.

    Don't blame us for that little twat. I think that goes to Usher for signing him to his company and in turn...

    I keep hoping his 15 mins to be up, but alas not yet.

    Good for the Omaha press!

    They are not so much a "church" as an extended-family group of crazies. :rolleyes:

    "Cereal Fornicator"? Does that mean Miss Swift did the nasty with Snap, Crackle and Pop?

    THAT is something I'd pay to see. :watch:

    For once I'm on Taylor's side. Maybe she'll sing to them and they'll all blow up?

    I have never understood why Taylor Swift inspires such venom in a world where Miley Cyrus exists?

    Taylor Swift can't sing (at least not without a lot of help in the studio) but at least she participates in writing her own songs and seems to have some smarts about the business.

    Miley Cyrus....not so much.

    They picketed one of the 9/11 Freedom Walks from the Washington Monument to the Pentagon that I did with members of my DAR Chapter. The police kept them well away from the walkers but they were close enough that we could hear their ugly chants and read their signs. According to them, 9/11 happened because God wanted to punish gays. I tried to organize the people around me to grab another marcher of the same sex and give them a kiss as we passed these idiots.
