God Hates Ska! Westboro Baptist Church Protests Less Than Jake

Why was Westboro Baptist Church picketing punk ska band Less Than Jake's show in Pensacola, Fla. last weekend? Does God, in fact, hate ska? In a statement, drummer Vinnie Fiorello says he has no idea why the notorious religious group came out to their show with "signs that talked about whore mongering, adultery, sin."

 He added, "Less Than Jake doesn't exactly send parents running for cover."

"It had to be a slow night at the bible study last night...Pop punk with a penchant for up stroke guitar and using the word 'f*ck' while drinking high-powered alcohol is not anywhere close to the headline grabbers on that list."

The band just wrapped up a handful of Florida dates and are preparing for the entire Vans Warped Tour this Summer.
