God Hates Comic-Con?

Apparently.  Westboro Baptist Church is at it again…this time they are going to be protesting Comic-Con in San Diego:

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.

I feel dirty enough posting something from there web site on my blog…posting a link is out of the question.  Needless to say you can find it under their Pickets section, just scroll down to July 22.

Seriously, people of Westboro Baptist Church, I implore you, stop making Christians look like hatemongers.  Really, reading comic books equals idolatry?  As someone who used to read comic books on a regular basis, I can tell you that for the most part, that’s not true.

Jeremy over at Hacking Christianity has the best quote on this:

But while we’re talking about misplaced devotion, I’m calling pot and  kettle here.  If Westboro spent as much energy on reading the bible as  they do making God look ugly, they’d be rockin’ scholars instead of the  surface-level enforcers that they are.

  1. Yeah, when my pastor mentioned this to me after chruch yesterday (I belong to a small church, so everyone knows I’m a comic geek)) I couldn’t believe it! Maybe, these guys should pull the log out of their own eyes (so to speak). Just sayin; 🙂
