Westboro Baptist Church vs. Comics Fans

As stated previously on the Comics Cube!, Fred Phelps' Westboro Baptist Church (the God Hates Fags people) decided to protest San Diego Comic-Con, on the grounds that SDCC is a haven for idol worshippers and people who are going to hell. This is a damn hateful group of people, folks, and they're not cool. Here they are:

And how did the comics fans respond? The only way they can.

Courtesy of Bleeding Cool and the Comics Alliance, here are some pictures.

Superman's for everyone, after all!

To finish this off, here's an interview with Gail Simone!

The Westboro Baptist Church preaches a message of hate, folks. At SDCC, they ran across some folks connected by a genuine love for their hobby, and they disappeared and went away.

Sometimes (as in my previous post) I can get really angry at comic book fans, but times like these, I'm proud to be one, and I wish I could've been there.
