The Foo Fighters will likely have some unsolicited attention next week from some of the country’s most notorious protesters.  “NME” reports the Christian fundamentalist group Westboro Baptist Church has announced plans to picket the band’s Kansas City show on September 16th.  In a statement on the organization’s protest schedule, they explain they picked the Foo Fighters because the “entertainment industry is a microcosm of the people in this doomed nation.”  It goes on to call people like Dave Grohl and company “hard-hearted, hell-bound and hedonistic.”  The group also says musicians should be using their platform to “encourage obedience to God” rather than promoting fornication, adultery, idolatry and homosexuality.  But despite the promise of protests, the Foo Fighters are scheduled to kick off their U.S. tour on September 14th in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Members of the Westboro Baptist Church have made a name for themselves in recent years by picketing a number of high profile funerals, including those of Michael Jackson and Black Sabbath singer Ronnie James Dio.  They’ve also shown up at military funerals with signs that read “Thank God for dead soldiers.”
