The holiday season is a time to spread love, light and joy which means that for infamous religious group Westboro Baptist Church, 'tis the season to up the religiously fueled anti-LGBTQIA+ protests and pickets.
The Westboro Baptist Church took to Twitter in the late afternoon of November 28 to announce that they would be picketing pop star Kim Petras' show at The Truman in Kansas City, Missouri:

"You know when you’re having one of those days, when you realize that your knowledge of the levels that this generation has reached," the bulletin-like Twitter notice stated, "debasing themselves in every imaginable and unimaginable way, in departing from the pure standards of God? Well this is one of those days. Just read the Wikipedia page of this sad soul calling himself Kim Petras."
Petras, 27, is transgender and completed gender reassignment surgery in 2008 at the young age of 16.
The dark and grammatically incorrect notice by the WBC continued on to call Petras by the incorrect pronoun "him" and labeled her gender reassignment as 'nonsense' performed by "witch doctors."
The singer's initial response was a tweet sent out to all of her fans accompanied by an 11-second video clip of the singer in the video for her latest single, "Icy":
