In their latest homophobic march, the Westboro Baptist Church plan to record and picket Panic! At The Disco's July 20th concert in Kansas City, Missouri. The anti-gay group that brought you the homophobic Frozen parody have decided to once again try their hand at song writing. Sadly, they have chosen to do it to someone else's tune. From Panic! at the Disco's A Fever You Can't Sweat Out album's "I Write Sins Not Tragedies," comes "You Love Sin What A Tragedy." Original, right? WBC members recorded this track this past Thursday after the group decided to picket the band's event over concerns that the P@TD frontman, Brendon Urie, brags about "his perversions." The new song strays from its parent's defense of a bride, and instead uses it to condemn gay marriage and the acts therein. One of the lyrics includes: "Oh! You all say it's okay to be gay/ The way to fag marriage has been paved/ Well this calls for some truth, now/ You're all insane."

Wow! Keep 'em coming, WBC! Don't let our own desire for freedom stop you from doing what you're doing. These posts have garnered quite the following, with many fans showing unwavering support for the band's cause. You can read the complete conversation on their Facebook page. Love is love! What do you guys think? Is the Westboro Baptist Church just digging an even deeper hole? How did you feel about their Frozen parody compared to this one?
