Protestors Pick On Comic Book Nerds

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – God hates comic book nerds.

That’s the belief of the notorious Westboro Baptist Church, which plans on picketing this week’s San Diego Comic-Con (Jul. 22-25).

The staunch Christian group feels that comic book dweebs should spend their time reading the Bible and learning about Jesus instead of Superman, because Christ is the only hero who can truly save them.

However, Ed Fogerty of Galactic Comic in San Diego says the WBC has it all wrong.

He explains, “I love comic books, and I don’t see why I can’t be a good person and read comics as well.”

In fact, Fogerty sells comics that illustrate the life of Jesus called The Faith Series, which the WBC couldn’t possibly consider ungodly.

Since there’s “no winning” with the protestors, Fogerty thinks Comic-Con attendees should bring the WBC members a copy of his Jesus comic book to prove them wrong on their assumptions.
