It seems like an eternity since we have heard from the God-fearing folks at Westboro Baptist Church. I am sure they have been busy picketing funerals, and putting their hateful ideology to surprisingly sweet-sounding music – it is just that it has gotten old and as a result hasn’t made the news for a while… until now.
A shift of focus has gotten pastor pastor (and disbarred lawyer) Fred Waldron Phelps, Sr and congregation back into the spotlight. This time they are not targeting soldiers or gay people, they are targeting nerds. More precisely, they have taken issue with Comic Con attendees and their worship of two-dimensional idols – so they are packing their bags, painting their signs and heading for 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!
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.
For those interested in seeing how events unfold, the demonstration is scheduled for 1:15 -2:00 pm, which may be just enough time for them to get from their first engagement of the afternoon where they will:
…picket adulterous Al Gore at the Manchester Grand Hyatt. He built his house on sand and great is his fall!
