…because the idiots from Westboro Baptist Church of Crazy are coming!
From their website (I hated giving them the traffic, but I wanted to verify the crazy):
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.
Ok, wow. These kooks get their knickers in a twist about comic books and claim that people have turned comic book characters into idols. Are they that upset about the last Iron Man movie? I mean, I know it wasn’t a masterpiece, but there’s really no reason to picket the San Diego Comic-Con. As it is, have they considered that they pay fealty and obeisance to a superhero, too?
Let’s compare, shall we?
Superman: comes from a distant realm/planet, has super-hearing, super-vision, can defy gravity, was revived after “dying”
Jesus: comes from a distant realm/planet, has super-hearing, super-vision, can defy gravity, was revived after “dying”…and can transmute natural substances—hey, Superman can’t do that!
Fig. 1: Looks like cosplay to me. Just sayin’.
By the way, hasn’t it ever occurred to these numbnuts that the law of diminishing returns applies to their incessant picketing?
