Westboro Baptist Church Comes to San Diego Comic-Con

Bookmark and Share

The Westboro Baptist Church best known for protesting at the funerals of dead U.S. soldiers with signs such as “God Hates Fags” are coming to San Diego Comic-Con (they’ll be the one larping as assholes).  What’s the reason?  We’ll let them do the explaining:

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.

1:15pm till 2pm on the Thursday, 22nd July, they’ll be picketing outside the convention.

It’s been a busy month for these nutcases.  They’ve also been picketing Justin Bieber, Lady GaGa, the Jewish Holocaust Museum and Al Gore.  Should be a fun time as the unwashed geeks meet the unwashed crazies.

I’m thinking some of the cosplay alone will cause the church members to have a stroke.

  • Hey there! They just left Dallas, these WBC fools. We raised over ten grand for the Resource Center they were picketing — a center that is guilty of providing a Meals-On-Wheels style service to people housebound with AIDS! You guys, turn it into a fundraiser, too. They can’t stand that, and it’s a great way to turn an otherwise negative occasion into something beneficial.

    Someone on Bleeding Cool suggested donating to any money earned to Prism, which is, as I understand it, a non-profit GLBT comic company. That might irk the WBC, yeah? :)

    I understand NYC’s Suckadelic will be at the counter-protest. Go support him!
