It's never taken much to incur the wrath of the notoriously bigoted Westboro Baptist Church, but they must have lost their damn minds recently (maybe DOMA sent them over the edge?) because in an interview with Radar Online, they called Taylor Swift a whore.

Now, let's just remember who we're talking about—this is a woman who has built a career on being the sweet, squeaky-clean girl next door. This isn't Courtney Love (not that Courtney Love's a whore, love you Courtney). This isn't even bad-girl-of-late Miley Cyrus. This is Taylor. Fucking. Swift.

In a press release that is, frankly, a gift, the church calls Swift "the whorish face of doomed America," adding that:

@TaylorSwift13 works her “girl next door” country-singer shtick, while hopping from one young man to the next and strutting across the world stage like a proud whore.

But they don't stop with Taylor. They go on to vilify her dad, saying that while he cares a lot about the money she makes, he doesn't give a shit that her soul is going to rot in hell for all eternity because she is a vulgar tramp:

With a hating hypocrite for a dad-who will jealously guard her income,while not giving a thought for her never-dying soul-no wonder she grew up to be the poster child for the young whores of doomed-america.

In protest of her Jezebelian ways, the group will protest Swift's upcoming concert in Kansas City on Saturday, August 3. Should be a party.
