Hate Church Targets Comic-Con

Westboro Baptist Church, the notorious "Gods Hates Fags" congregation out of Kansas, will be in San Diego next week to rain down 45 minutes of eternal and inconsequential damnation upon your idolatrous worship of Spider-Man and Green Lantern.


This appears to be an opportunistic double, as the same day the same group is scheduled to picket a San Diego hotel where Al Gore is, I guess, staying. The "action" is listed for July 22 on the group's schedule of events:

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.

Wait a minute, you mean Batman's not a legitimate deity?

After accomplishing nothing in San Diego, Westboro's back to ruining some military funerals in the greater Kansas-Oklahoma-Missouri area, before two dates on July 28 and Aug. 3 to bitch about Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga ... hmm ... the enemy of my enemies is my ... fuck it, they're all enemies.

On behalf of all sane Christians everywhere, I would like to say that the congregation of Westboro are horrible people who are giving us a bad name. Please don't associate us with them people; they're insane.

Also, does anyone else wonder what these high and mighty maniacs do on their time off from picketing?
