Westboro Baptist Church, the same hate-filled group that made headlines with its screeds against gay people and Jews and their bizarre picketing of the funerals of American soldiers, will be out in force apparently during San Diego Comic-Con later this week.
Here’s a statement from the wackos’ website, which I won’t dignify with a link because it’s, well, frankly disgusting:
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!
Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made: 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.
Oh boy … these hatemongers have no idea what they’re in for.
