God Hates ... Ska Bands?
(Left) The members of Less Than Jake ponder the mysteries of life
There must not have been any soldier funerals or gay events last weekend, since members of the hatemongering Westboro Baptist Church made a surprise appearance in Pensacola, Florida to protest outside a show by the altogether inoffensive ska/pop/punk band Less Than Jake. Asked why he thinks his band would be targeted by the controversial religious group, drummer Vinnie Fiorello replied, “I have no idea. I mean, let's face the facts: Less Than Jake doesn’t exactly send parents running for cover. The fact that we do have a certain amount of obscenity and are fairly liberal could and obviously did ruffle some Christian feathers.”
