June 28 (UPI) -- Country pop princess Taylor Swift has a carefully cultivated image of the "girl next door" but the professional protesters of Westboro Baptist Church aren't buying her "schtick."

The Topeka, Kan. based church group is planning to picket Swift's August 3 concert in Kansas City, citing the singer's "serial fornicating" with her string of high-profile boyfriends.

"@TaylorSwift13 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," the group wrote.

“This girl is a whore,” said WBC leader Ben Phelps. “Who else is gonna say that if it’s not the church of the Lord Jesus?"

“She’s coming into our backyard,” Phelps said. “We’re gonna go preach to her. She claims she's a good Christian, but she's not.”

The group said Swift could easily turn form her devious ways and be what they would consider to be a good example -- her millions of Twitter followers ought to hear "one simple tweet form her -- 'Stop fornicating ladies, and obey God'" but that "would cost her millions she makes with her sin-coddling songs."

Swift has been publicly linked to Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Mayer, Owl City's Adam Young, One Direction's Harry Styles and Connor Kennedy.
