Well folks, Comic-Con is only a week away and I was denied a booth despite my promise to "only drink from a flask" and "sign the everliving-shit out of some f***in' autographs". So yeah, maybe next year. My Deku-Link costume going unworn aside, members of the gay-hating Westboro Baptist Church (best known for the confused looks on their faces when they find themselves burning in hell) plan to protest the convention for idol-worship. Per the "don't you have something better to do?" church itself:
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.
They, uh, do know Batman and Superman aren't real, right? And why isn't the church all over the parents who let their children worship the Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus? Oh, right, those are their people. AMERICAN IDOL IS DESTROYING THIS COUNTRY.
