After losing their ferocious leader Fred Phelps, the Westboro Baptist Church have resorted to extreme measures to maintain interest in their radical organization. One of which is recording rather hateful covers of dated songs.

The group’s latest target: Panic! at the Disco.

The Westboro Baptist Church is not only picketing the group’s Kansas City, Missouri concert on July 20, they’ve also written a parody of the band’s 2006 single “I Write Sins Not Tragedies,” renamed “You Love Sin What a Tragedy.” As Rolling Stone points out, they made the comma mistake, not us.

The parody is a condemnation of gay marriage with the Church singing, “Oh! You all say it’s okay to be gay/ The way to fag marriage has been paved/ Well this calls for some truth, now/ You’re all insane.”

Their main issue with Panic! at the Disco? Frontman Brendon Urie’s fluid sexuality.

In the past, Urie has talked about sexually experimenting and finding other men attractive. “I guess if I had to classify myself, I’d say I’m straight,” he told PrideSource last year. “But I have, in the past, experimented in other realms of homosexuality and bisexuality. Overall I’m more attracted to women.”

Panic! At The Disco put out their fourth album, Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die!, last year.
