Professional hate-mongers the Westboro Baptist Church have released a bile-laden version of a Panic! At The Disco song ahead of its planned picket of the group.

The 2006 single I Write Sins, Not Tragedies has been turned into a vile parody named You Love Sin What A Tragedy.

While the original is about defending a bride against accusations of being a “whore” on her wedding day, WBC has turned this into a condemnation of gay marriage.

Panic! At The Disco's front man Brendon Urie

And it’s as grim and hateful as you can imagine, substituting lines like:

Oh! Well in fact/ Well I'll look at it this way/ I mean technically our marriage is saved/ Well this calls for a toast, so pour the champagne/ Pour the champagne

For this:

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.

According to WBC, Panic! front man Brendon Urie: “brags about his perversions and the fans just lap it up. If his followers really cared for him, they would warn Urie that his sins are taking him straight to hell.

“Never fear, WBC will kindly do that job of putting the only message of truth and salvation before his eyes and the eyes of his fans.

“God hates fags, fags doom nations, America is a fag nation, ergo Americans (including little fag perverts like Urie and his fans) are doomed.”

WBC plan to picket the band (and presumably its fans) at its gig in Kansas Missouri on 20 July.

While WBC’s “reasons” for the proposed picket are unclear, PinkNews writes its motivation may have been an interview Urie gave in which he described having a fluid sexuality as “natural” and that attempts to suppress it may lead to homophobia.

He told PrideSource: “I find myself being attracted to dudes all the time. I’m like, ‘Wow, that’s a beautiful man.’ There’s no shame in it; that’s how I feel. To stifle that would probably bring on stress and probably make somebody homophobic.

“I guess if I had to classify myself, I’d say I’m straight. But I have, in the past, experimented in other realms of homosexuality and bisexuality. Overall I’m more attracted to women.”

The WBC gained a repulsive notoriety for picketing the funerals of US servicemen killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

It claimed the deaths are God's punishment for American immorality and tolerance of homosexuality and abortion.

WBC has attempted to picket concerts by the Foo Fighters and One Direction in the past and has a vile library of other homophobic parody songs including Let It Go from Disney's Frozen and Royals by Lorde.
