NEWS: Bands drive away Westboro Baptist Church protest at Vans Warped Tour!

The infamous Westboro Baptist Church, who are known for their hate speech and protest activities, seemed to have opted for the Bonner Springs, Kansas City date of this year’s Vans Warped Tour (July 27th 2017) as one of their latest choices for a protest spot, carrying their pickets and signs of their typical divisive nature.

However, they soon faced an unexpected crash of several bands from the festival line-up, coming along to drive away the protesters, wearing t-shirts and vests by Blackcraft Cult that read “Fuck The Westboro Baptist Church”, taking photos with them, and Eric Vanlerberghe (vocalist for I Prevail) deciding to have a quick make-out session with his friend Dominic Mackie right in front of Shirley Phelps-Roper, one of the Church’s more well-known members.

Along with members of I Prevail, other bands that were involved include Creeper, Sylar, and Alestorm.

You can see some video footage of what went on below.
