Westboro Baptist Church, the infamous church/hate group from Topeka, Kansas, is making an addition to its notorious "God Hates..." picket agenda. In addition to "Fags", "Jews", and "America", WBC is now asserting that "God Hates Nerds". The congregation will be in San Diego next week to rain down 45 minutes of eternal damnation upon the idolatrous worship of Spider-Man and Green Lantern.1
The congregation's July 22 schedule of events is listed as follows:
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.
