Westboro Baptist Church Protests At Comic Con: ‘God Hates Nerds’

God_Hates_Fags_12-25-2002-copy-300x225I have got to get one of those “God Hates Nerds” signs for the front door of my fraternity house. One of the new arrivals at this year’s Comic-Con is Kansas’s Westboro Baptist Church. The group arrived in San Diego yesterday and held a protest against nerds, and their gay-for-Batman ways:

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…

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'm betting prayers to batman get answered just as often as prayers to yvhv

  • DeepCough

    It's nice to know that Westboro is always ready to update everyone on what “God” hates today.

    • Andrew

      God hates me and has always hated me. That's all I need to know.

  • understatement

    I agree, deepcough. ridiculous. these people make me sick.

  • WestboroBaptistChurchIsGarbage

    Fuck these people. Anyone who protests at a soldier's funeral is human garbage. If I see one of these bastards in San Diego I will punch them in the face.

    • tonyviner

      I don't necessarily mind that so much, they are just doing it for the wrong reasons.

  • Earstoseeyestohear

    they must be fucking retarded

  • justagirl

    so, westboro baptist church is where all the “cool” people congregate? … i'd walk away from that sign if i were you dude.

  • A Bad Joke

    I didn't realize I worshipped Green Lantern, but if the big book of rolling papers says I do…

  • Brian1587

    These people are dumb. Do they realize that God hates people who judge others? You would think they'd have learned..oh wait..their dumb..my bad

  • razzlebathbone

    And here's the nerds' response:


    Nerds: eleventy-zillion, Westboro: zero.

  • Haystack

    It sounds like this God fellow is kind of a jerk.

    • neurolux

      God is a jock.

  • Hadrian999

    i feel so bad for the kids in this church when they finally grow up and get out on their own

  • mcgibbo

    These guys are insane, I saw them on tv once when Louis Theroux spent a weekend with them. They are just full of hatred for everyone else, one of the daughters even said it made her feel good knowing that Louis would go to hell! Crazy bitch. It's very vain to think you are somehow above all other humans, I'm sure God hates vanity. Love the sinner hate the sin, isn't that a phrase that was inspired by God? I suppose in a way they are doing God's work y'know feed the hungry, clothe the poor, heal the sick, defend the weak, love, be compassionate, share freely, forgive and tell everyone that God hates them. Yeah.
    I feel sorry for the kids born into their weird religion. Fred Phelps has definitely earned a place at the right hand of ……
    …Satan. What a dick!

  • Rohatsu

    God hates?

  • tonyviner

    God Hates Us All

  • APR

    What part of “Judge not, lest ye be judged” don't they understand? Matthew 7 is pretty interesting.

  • J Piatt

    This was a new level of ridiculous from the Phelps bunch. Trolls trolling trolls.

  • Gerald_schiller

    Maybe the Baptist just hate how people are stealing story-lines from the bible and using them in other stories. Original ideas are hard to come by.

    If you throw holy water on them, perhaps they will melt like the witches in the wizard of oz….
    Just a thought…..
