ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Referring to the St. Louis Cardinals and Boston Red Sox as “titan perverts” playing “goofy sports,” anti-gay advocates with the Westboro Baptist Church have announced they will protest outside Busch Stadium this weekend.

“The worthless strutting peacocks of these two baseball teams…will wallow in a sea of blood-red as they pour their energy into glorifying themselves instead of God,” the protestors announced in a press release Sunday. “Very fitting that these two teams should be symbolized by red – for the blood of murdered unborn babies by the millions, thousands killed in unrighteous wars, and bloody fag filth.”

The protestors contend that baseball fans are worshiping false idols by watching baseball when they should instead be worshiping God and mourning their sin.

“Indeed, if you spent one tiny fraction of what you spend on your baseball-worship on learning what the Bible actually says, & teaching it to your children, this would be a blessed righteous nation,” the group states. “Instead, you have to look to nasty fornicating adulterous sodomitical punks-in-uniform, while you sit in a drunken stupor cheering, as a means of distracting yourself from the misery you’ve heaped on your head for your great sin.”

According to the protestors, God has already punished Red Sox and Cardinals fans by bringing about the Boston Marathon bombings earlier this year and the May 22, 2011 tornado in Joplin.

The Topeka, Kansas-based protestors will congregate outside Busch between 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Saturday and between 5:45 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. on Sunday.
