Lady Gaga claimed victory Sunday against an anti-gay church protesting the singer's support for gay rights.

“Tonight love and hate met in St. Louis,” Lady Gaga tweeted to her millions of followers. “And love outnumbered the hate, in poetic thousands.”

“Hate left. But love stayed. + Together, we sang,” she added.

The anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church picketed the St. Louis leg of the rock star's Monster Ball tour on Saturday night with signs that read “God hates Lady Gaga.”

“Some people in this world are addicted to hate and they preach messages of divisiveness,” Gaga told her fans inside the Scottrade Center. “But here at the monsterball you are free and we preach love and we preach truth. And we preach unity and togetherness.”

“I'm going to have a drink with you after the show,” Gaga said, looking down from her piano. “Except you can't drink because you're 19. So, we'll have apple juice.”

Earlier, Gaga had pleaded with fans to ignore the protesters.

“My request to all little monsters and public authority is to pay these hate criminals no mind,” she posted on her official website and tweeted. “Do not interact with them, or try to fight.”

Lady Gaga's outspoken support for gay rights has turned the rocker into a gay icon. Speaking to CNN's Larry King, Gaga said her new single Alejandro “is a celebration of my love and appreciation for the gay community. My admiration of their bravery and their love for one another. Their courage in their relationships.”
