On Thursday night, Adam Lambert was giving a performance for his Glam Nation Tour in Kansas City, rocking the house and giving his fans plenty to cheer about. The message of his music? Acceptance — just as he says in “If I Had You”, love is really all someone needs.
It is with those words that makes what happened outside the “American Idol” singer’s concert all the more sad. The Westboro Baptist Church — the same group that protests the memorials of fallen soldiers — decided they were going to take their message of hate to Adam’s concert.
All it took for Adam to respond to this group’s protests was “God doesn’t hate”. He also posted a picture of the protesters and their extremely offensive signs. There are only five people standing out there in protest, and one of them is a child.
Is it horrifying? More than anything, it just shows how little progress the world has made in some respects. However, commendation must go to Adam for handling the situation with grace and not stooping to the level witnessed in these pictures.
Do you think Adam Lambert handled these protests well, and how horrified are you about this? Feel free to share your thoughts with a comment and stay tuned for more “American Idol” news. To view recent photos of Adam, follow the link here.
