Why were Fred Phelps and his group picketing the Willie Nelson concert at the Lied Center?

"Officially, we don't know why he was here," said Karen Christilles, director of public relations for the Lied Center. "We got a notification from him that we would be one of the places they were at on Saturday. As to why he decided Willie Nelson was a place they needed to be, we don't have a clue."

Phelps, minister of Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, is known for holding anti-homosexual demonstrations.
