Kirk Franklin has invited the Topeka Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church to picket one of his concerts after accusing the group of being godless for protesting the funerals of Orlando terror attack victims.

“So a church from Kansas called Westboro is planning on picketing the funerals of two men killed in the Orlando massacre. … Let me address,” Franklin tweeted to his 1 million followers on Friday. “Whoever your pastor is, he is the dumbest, most hateful ignorant man to ever lead ANY church. There is NO form of Godliness in this act … and a continuing issue of why the world sees us as hateful and judgmental.”

“You fill it with hate and disease. PLEAS PLEASE respond! Please show up to one of my concerts protesting, PLEASE! We love Jesus, but … Just pleas come. This is a sad day for the faith I love. … Read the ENTIRE Bible, and let those parents bury their children. #WackChurch,” he added in follow-up tweets.

The Westboro Baptist Church protest group, which isn’t affiliated with any Baptist denomination, is known for protesting outside churches that provide counsling for people who are divorced, American soldiers’ funerals, and even relaity TV stars from “Duck Dynasty.”
