Photos: The Westboro Baptist Church's Lady Gaga Protest -- And the Counter-Protesters

Categories: Snapshots

Well, round two between Lady Gaga and the Westboro Baptist Church has come and gone. For the most part, it was anticlimactic: Only about six members of the Phelps clan showed up, and most of Gaga's fans ignored them.

Additionally, the police did an excellent job partitioning the two groups, with each side having its own corner of 14th Street at Clark, across the street from the main entrance of the Scottrade Center. That severely limited interaction between the two and stifled any real contentiousness.

However, the protest had its moments and photographer Erin Kinsella was there to capture it all.

Mmm, those congregation members' organs look good enough to make into my next cup of organ tea.

This is heartwarming! I was wondering when Gaga would fire back at the cult (and especially @meganphelps who redid the Lady's and Beyonce's "Telephone" - which i recommend watching, as it shows just how bat-sht crazy this "church" is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v... ). Way to be, St. Louis!

It is, of course, primarily fat ugly sows of girls holding the anti-Gaga posters. Not surprising.

I will never understand why the media continues to give these people all the free press that they seek. If you just ignore the fact the God Hates Fags people exist then do they ever matter? I think not.
