British boyband member Harry Styles has spoken out against the Westboro Baptist Church who protested at a One Direction concert this weekend.

On Saturday (20 July), the ‘God Hates Fags’ church travelled to Kansas City, Missouri to hold up their anti-gay signs.

They accuse the ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ singers for being ‘fag enabling perverts’.

Before the protest, they even tweeted a Gay Star News article about One Direction alongside a poster.

‘These freaks glamorize 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,’ they said.

The curly-haired member spoke out against the church, who had spent their Saturday night yelling obscenities at 12-year-old girls behind police barricades in the parking lot.

Styles tweeted: ‘Despite the company outside, I believe in equal rights for everyone. I think God loves all. Thanks for coming to the show though.’
