One Direction have come into the firing lines of a new enemy today, with the crazy protesting Westboro Baptist Church labeling them 'freaks' and 'perverts' with plans to picket their concerts in Kansas City on July 19th.

The demented religious group then went on to say that they're 'a perfect representation of this filthy world and the sin-chasing, fag-enabling, God-hating, Christ-rejecting UK' and 'These freaks and their fans think it's funny for these five perverts to grab each other's asses on stage. They glamorise sin and make a mock of God's standards. Their one purpose is to encourage the youth of this generation to pursue every lust their evil hearts can imagine.'

Lovely, right?

The WBC are no strangers to spouting hate, previously calling Taylor Swift a 'whore' and generally being awful to gain media attention. But are they making a big mistake crossing One Direction fans, who are probably just as crazed but in a completely different way?

They've even gotten creative and recorded their own version of One D's One Thing, except it's all about 'obeying' which is nothing short of terrifying.
