Geeks vs. Freaks

Filed under: General Interest — mikecgannon @ 12:42 AM

Apparently a contingent of the Fred Phelps cult known generally as the Westboro Baptist Church showed up at Comic-Con this weekend, and the convention goers were ready! Laura Hudson at Comics Alliance has some hysterical photos of the counter-protesters.

Now generally speaking, I would frown disapprovingly at the somewhat sacrilegious nature of some of the signs, but seeing as the intent is clearly, not to mock God, but to mock a collection of folks who, in any society with a basic respect for decency, are in absolute need of mockery, I’m willing to let it slide. Besides, how can you NOT smile at a demonstration that features signs bearing “God Loves EVERYBODY” and the beginning line of the Code of the Sith side by side, and united in purpose?

H/T Jason Boog at GalleyCat for the link.
