Members of the controversial Westboro Baptist Church are planning to protest Taylor Swift’s upcoming concert in Kansas after branding her a “dirty, pirate hooker” because of her busy dating life.

The “Love Story” hitmaker’s personal life has come under much media scrutiny after a string of failed romances with the likes of John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal, Joe Jonas and Harry Styles, and now religious extremists are taking a stand against the 23-year-old’s “sin-coddling songs” by vowing to disrupt her Kansas City show on Aug. 3.

In a series of posts on Twitter, a group representative writes, “Westboro to picket the whorish face of america: Taylor Swift…”

“(Swift) works her ‘girl next door’ country-singer shtick, while hopping from one young man to the next and strutting across the world stage like a proud whore… Taylor Swift in three words: lascivious, foolish, proud, dirty, pirate hooker!”

Swift has yet to respond to the outrageous tweets, but the extremists are well-known for their controversial protests – in 2011 followers picketed a Foo Fighters concert in Missouri in response to the band’s lyrics, which contained homosexual references, and they staged a demonstration outside a Radiohead gig in Kansas City last year.
