(Newser) – Rev. Fred Phelps hates all things gay, and Lady Gaga certainly qualifies. So he’s launching a crusade against her, announcing today that his Westboro Baptist Church will picket an upcoming Gaga concert. In a charming press release titled “God Hates Lady Gaga,” he explains that Gaga is a “proud whore” who “teaches rebellion against God.”

“Does the simple slut truly think that she can change God's standards by seducing a generation of rebels into joining her in fist-raised, stiff-necked, hard-hearted rebellion against Him? Get real!” he continues. “She hates you! … YOU’RE GOING TO HELL.”
