Members of the Westboro Baptist Church are a bunch of hate mongers. They picket things like soldiers’ funerals, court cases involving hate crimes, Lady Gaga, and really, anything they can give a half ass excuse of breaking the rules for whenever they see fit.
These guys are assholes with no respect for human life. Below are some pictures of the signs they carry to events, for real, I didn’t change anything. These are real signs the crazy douches use.
This time they are picketting Comic Con Why? read a quote from the WBC below
” 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.”
Does anyone else think this as crazy as I do? I know a ton of comic fans, and a lot are religious as well. There is no reason these two things can’t be appreciated by the same people. I hate these people, and I’m pretty sure if I ever gained super powers there would be a real problem on the WBC’s hands.
What do you think? Are they going too far, or are they just trying to gain some more fame by going to one of the largest gatherings in Hollywood?
