The Westboro Baptist Church are a particularly nasty Christian extremist sect best known for picketing dead US soldier funerals with signs reading God Hates Fags, preaching that the death of American soldiers is a direct result of not stoning gay people, or something.
And they’ve got a busy month. Picketing Josh Bieber, Lady Ga Ga, the Jewish Holocaust Museum (to remind the Jews that God sent the Holocaust on them as a punishment) and the “adulterous” Al Gore at his healthcare summit in San Diego. Which is being held at the same time as the San Diego Comic Con 2010. So why not picket two birds with one placard?
From 1.15pm till 2pm on the Thursday, 22nd July, the Westboro Baptits Church will be picketing the San Diego Comic Con. Why you may ask? Well lets ask them.
Are you kidding?! If these people would spend even some of the energy that they spend on these comic books, reading the Bible, well no high hopes here. They have turned comic book characters into idols, and worship them they do! Isaiah 2:8 Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made: 9 And the mean man boweth down, and the great man humbleth himself: therefore forgive them not. It is time to put away the silly vanities and turn to God like you mean it. The destruction of this nation is imminent – so start calling on Batman and Superman now, see if they can pull you from the mess that you have created with all your silly idolatry.
So that’s the challenge. And I want to put one out to you. Let’s take it on, lets call on Batman and Superman. Anyone wearing a Batman or Superman-related costume should organise their own anti-protest. Any sign suggestions?
SUPERMAN LOVES FAGS maybe?
Or maybe have a bunch of Darth Vaders and Stormtroopers with placards reading I FIND YOUR LACK OF FAITH… DISTURBING.
Or how about Thor?
You know what San Diego? As a committed Christian deeply offended by these morons, I think this is the only excuse you need to reinstate the Suicide Girls at Con. With the proviso they take these protestors down…
