    i liked the one sign that said God loves everybody, cause it's true :) you cant say God hates, because there is no hate with God, only love.... yaaay love!
  • Virgil_theBadassPoet

    Yep, 1 John 4:8 "Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love." And I'm not a biblefag, that one verse so beautifully sums him up that I've memorized it.

    Wasn't that same God who told people to prove their fate by killing every one in their way, in their own camp? ;o

    :huh:
    Read that verse in context...trust me it makes more sense when you do.
  • Thammuz
    avatar
    It's inconsistent with all the orders, laws and punishments he supposedly supports (like killing a shitload of completely unrelated fistborn children just to make a point to a stubborn head of state who didn't want to free a big part of his free labour. If I did that I'd be flinged in prison so fast i'd splatter all over the walls, but he's god so nobody says anything apparently)

    But, hey, i'm sure that verse makes perfect sense as long as you pick what context it is "in context" in.

    There's also John 3:16 that says [i]"For god so[b] LOVED[/b] the world that he gave his only begotten son..."[/i]

    The Pharasees thought Jesus was blasphemous when he told a man that he was forgiven of his sins. See, only God has the power to forgive sins, and it's my theory that only God alone has the power to forgive, convict, and condemn. The next verse backs that up. John 3:17 "[i]For God did not come unto the world to [b]CONDEMN[/b] it, but that through him, it might be saved."[/i]

    The sad thing is that people are going to look at them and then me and say we are the same thing because I'm a Baptist. Yet, I want nothing to do with them.

    Oioi. I'm no fan of religon, but leave those that spread peace be.

    I don't care what a persons religouse views are. Hate is still hate and love is still love. That is what matters.

    And mild discomfort is still mild discomfort, indifference is still indifference, a kiss is still a kiss, a sigh is still a sigh; as time goes by.

    Ehm... Are we thinking of the same god? I'm thinking of the murdering, genocidal, jelous, judging god of the bible.
  • Gamer_Ely
    avatar
    then you apparently don't know God if you think he's out just to hurt people, even those who don't believe in him and at the same time insult him, he still loves you no matter what, and thanks to people that are showing even a little respect, thats all that matters is that we respect one another, insults help nobody and make us all worse for it.
  • JackBrimstone

    but that still doesn't explain why he destroyed the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. Is buttsecks really that bad that God needed to issue a unholy missle strike? and yes, the WBC based all their hatred towards homosexuality based on that portion of the bible. they confuse sodomy to being something that only homosexuals would do. Personally, I thing its wrong for anyone to truly judge anyone else. Especially based on something that looks like a work of fiction.
  • Gamer_Ely
    avatar
    well if you look at the old testament sure, that book is all about judgement and retribution, but christians try to live their life based on the new testament which is about Jesus, who is all about forgiveness and love. Thats why Jesus took all that punishment, so that God would never do that against man again.
  • Thammuz
    avatar
    Nevermind the fact that the new testament follows on from the old and that god said he's unchanging, therefore what he endorsed back then should still apply today.

    Laws such as, even accepting the corrections jesus made, stoning to death rape victims, if the rape occurred in the city, because they enjoyed it, seeing how nobody rescued them because they didn't ask for help hard enough, or victims of rape outside city walls forcibly sold to the rapist to be married.

    Such a loving god, huh? -_-
  • Mattevansc3
    That really is a case of "worshippers" not seeing the woods because of the trees. The men of those cities raped an Angel who was sent down to see if there was any good still left in those cities, God then sent the Angel of Death to wipe them from the face of the Earth.

    Any normal sane person, especially those that believe in God, would pick out that the rape was the crime they committed. The narrow-minded bigots though pick out that it was men having (non-consensual) sex with an angel of no defined gender (whom may not even have a gender) but is assumed is male and therefore it is the male on (unconfirmed) male sex that doomed Sodom and Gomorrah.
  • Thammuz
    avatar
    Yeah, and the one godly man in town suggested that they raped his daughters instead.

    He was then saved for his lovely thought. =D
  • Filby

    I'm no expert, but I believe the reason God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because its people were selfish and callous to those in need, not because of teh ghey.

    People, don't give this guy thumbs down. He's giving a link to one of their hate sites to show just how deplorable that group is.

    I will say this: They're probably the only thing in the U.S. that is able to bring both religious and nonreligious people together in that both hate them equally.

    But without WBC protesting at Comic Con of all places, the mecca of our proud nerdom, where else would we have...

    ...THE EPIC WAR OF THE SIGNS WITH SILLY THINGS ON THEM

    Each side trying to out-absurd the other--bringing DESTRUCITY--which one will persevere?

    1) Lidsay has balls of Adamantium to deal with this! Seriously!

    2) if people have THIS much free time to protest a F***ing convention, then do what the generation before us did: march your asses to WASHINGTON! cause GOD hates idiots, and a lot of idiots in power need to be reminded that THEY WORK FOR US!

    so, to quote Chris Tucker from Friday: DAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMNN!

    It's so good to see those WBC-tards mocked for the fools they are. I really liked the clip I saw of the Comic-con attendee dressed as Jesus putting the freaks down.

    If you really want to torment the WBC, someone should introduce them to Tommy Wiseau. That would be some amusing punishment. [b]YOU ARE TEARING ME [i]APART[/i], FRED PHELPS[/b]!

    Just play Plastic Jesus (The cover by Jello Biafra and Mojo Nixon) in front of them. They'll either get up and leave or deliberately kill you to death.
  • mr_rubino
    Yet again, just... why? If the WBC are just expanding their focus to hit absolutely anything they can find, just let me know, because this has nothing to do with dead gays or dead soldiers.
    It's a f***ing comic book convention. What in the name of Shirley's demon-spewing infernal gate is there for them to be protesting at this location, at this time?
  • GrouchoMarxist
    avatar
    They're protesting the idle worship of false idols.
  • MissAshley
    avatar
    Which I would understand if not for the words "worship," "false," and "idols" being very subjective and especially questionable in the context of an annual festival attended people from all walks of life.

    Their funeral protests make more sense than this, and those are downright disgusting.
  • adelinecappuccino
    Westborro Baptist is the IRL equivalent of trolls on 4chan: they throw a big screaming cursing hissy fit about anything and everything because it gets them attention, mostly from people they offend; and they think the best way to win an argument is by screaming obsenities and insults until their opponent gives up for lack of stupidity tolerance.

    Gotta say though, they've officially sacrificed what little bit of diginity they'd managed to hang on to here. There is no way anybody is ever going to take them seriously now that they've proclaimed that God hates [i]Nerds.[/i] It's almost as ridiculous as the day they claimed God hated Swedish vaccuum cleaners. :D
  • AndrewDeLong
    avatar
    I'm just waiting for the day they say God hates Pepsi. Because, on that day my friend, the shit will truly hit the proverbial fan.


    And perhaps the real fan too...if they are downwind of my location. :whistle: ;)
  • Rem
    avatar
    They're real life trolls! And scammers. They finance their Awesome Amazing Hate Tour 2010 by suing cities that won't let them protest and people who get into physical altercations with them. It's a bait and hook.

    The whole family's a bunch of lawyers, in fact that's where Fred Phelps got his start, before he decided religious cults were more lucrative.

    What depressing people, to stand outside a comic convention of all things, and say God hates you. Honestly, you think they would have something better to do.

    However, that's not important right now. We must band together to stop the true enemy to us all...

    That part about kittens trying to kill you by knocking you down the stairs is totally true.
  • hielnaraku
    couple of signs for the counter protester. "God hates those who hate!"

    Or

    "Don't say what God hates, Only God knows that."

    Just saying.
  • jream
    avatar
    There's a verse in the Bible about how God wants people to be either hot or cold, but He'll spit "lukewarm" people out of His mouth.

    Just mentioned that because, according to that, He doesn't actually hate those who hate. Though definitely people need to quit assuming who God hates and doesn't hate. Those who hate are just stressing themselves out.


    Someone needs to just give the WBC people some blunts.
  • Flynn
    avatar
    Sigh...Why is it that the most vocal Christians are the ones with the most obnoxious and insulting viewpoints?

    Just once I'd like one to go out in the streets with a bullhorn and proclaim "God loves each and every one of you, regardless of your race, sexual preferences, or specific religious denominations! You're all equal in his eyes, so be happy and gracious people!" so that people will realize that we Christians aren't all [i]that[/i] bad...

    Erp...sorry fat fingers.

    Matthew 10:34 was what I meant. "Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.". It was a response to Flynn who is a professing Christian yet seems to suggest that God is "cool" with whatever you do.

    But on the other hand what Flynn is saying could be correct that God feels that we are all sinners regardless of who we are and what we do. Which goes with Matthew 10:24 too, which means humans are all equal in God's eyes regardless of our worldly social status.

  • DWP102589  - Unbelievable
    Speaking as a devout follower of the Bahá'í Faith, if what the Westboro Baptist Church preaches was true, (to paraphrase Linkara), God would have to be the most unreasonable, self-righteous, vindictive, vengeful, sadistic, prejudiced, and hateful asshole that EVER existed.
  • blackswede
    Pretty off topic, but I figure the WBC doesn't deserve my time.

    "God would have to be the most unreasonable, self-righteous, vindictive, vengeful, sadistic, prejudiced, and hateful asshole that EVER existed."

    All the other things on that list aside, is 'self-righteous' really a problem when it's *God* you're talking about? It's kinda like the idea that "it's not bragging if it's true": a perfect being can be as self-righteous as he wants.
  • DWP102589
    No, the God I worship recognizes, acknowledges, and rewards the righteousness present in all his servants, however that righteousness may express itself.
  • AndrewDeLong
    avatar
    But indeed if you read the bible, God is QUITE self righteous, which, as the poster above you states, is alright in a perfect being.
  • Floweramon
    It's funny, because something similar happened at my college. People heard that WBC was coming to our campus, so they organized a counter-protest. I went to it since I'd never been part of a protest before, but WBC never showed up! But we ended up enjoying the now-pointless protest anyway.
  • Lotus Prince
    avatar
    I don't think we got the WBC, but we did have some anti-abortion group protesting in front of our dining hall a few years ago. There were some amusing counter protesters, but I couldn't stay, because I had work at that time. BOY, was I furious that I had to miss that.
  • Yabuturtle  - Awesome vid
    avatar
    But was that Buddy Christ? lol I think I remember seeing the same guy in I-Mockery too. I can't believe they're protesting, on Comic Con of all days. What downers eh? Also correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Tommy Wiseau supposed to be here in Comic Con? If so, he's probably gonna have so much booing and have shit thrown at him, because of NC's and Obscura Lupa's review disappearing from the site.
  • MissAshley
    avatar
    That was indeed the Buddy Christ. My face lit up at the sight of him.
  • tiff-tiff86
    Lol! My personal favorite image that came out of this counter-protest was the picture of a guy dressed up as Bender from Futurama holding up a sign that says "KILL ALL HUMANS". :D
  • KannaRougeV
    avatar
    If John DiMaggio (Bender's VA) appeared at the protests AND voiced his character's cosplayer in order to blast the protestors from the hated WBC, that would be epic.

    Anyway, as a Christian, I tend to cringe [i]whenever[/i] Westboro Baptist Church's members show up in order to promote "God's hatred" upon their intended targets. Also, their protests alone tarnish what Christians are and what they [i]truly[/i] believe in. Actually, we Christians aren't filled with haterade as we're perceived to non-believers and we do love others, but we dislike the sins that they commit.
  • BloodySharpie
    My favorite is the guy who dressed up as a TF2 BLU spy and held up a sign that said "GOD HATES SENTRIES" (It's not in the video, but it's here: http:// www.bleedingcool.com/ 2010/07/22/comic-con-vs- westboro-baptist-church/ ).
  • MyMapleStory
    Ah the WestBoro Baptist church an insult to humanity and Christ with the messages it spreads. But I think the problem with responding to them in such a way is that they will feel that they have been vindicated in their cause this year at comic con and think they are just the truth being persecuted. Speaking as someone who is vocal as to his opinions, I can tell you, simply ignoring or being ignored is the most annoying thing that irratates me. People need to ignore these guys, and not take them seriously.
  • Wolfram-And-Hart
    Ah, the Westboro Baptist Church, the only hate group that's so bad even the KKK hates their guts.

    You know it's bad when even these racist assholes think your crazy and evil.

    :angry: These nuts in Fred Phelps' little cult make me sick. They're an absolute disgrace to everything good and decent in this world. I have a feeling when they do finally meet their maker, it'll be a short meeting followed by a long drop into a magical land full of fire and brimstone and guys in red pajamas sticking pitchforks in their asses. :evil:

    Well Fred Phelp was a defender of civil rights at one point. He defended black peoples' rights and then grew old. Now he is fighting against gay rights.

    Why do I want to crank call that number. I really want to call them and say very bad things to them.

    I laughed when some guy randomly yelled out hypo toad.

    Yeah that's the thing. He thinks black people are fine. It's EVERYONE ELSE that's going to hell.

  • Virgil_theBadassPoet
    avatar
    If you read history, you'll see that the KKK love America. They are extremist rednecks. The fact that the Westboro Baptist Church also hates America means that even the hated and despised KKK hates the WestBoro Baptist Church. Which raises the question, where does that rank the church when everyone hates them INCLUDING the organization that everyone hates?
  • The Movie Bitch
    avatar
    Wow, they're so bad even the Klan hates them! Even the Klan is realizing that hating everyone except for their own kind is getting stupid or they think that the WBC is more crazy and evil than they are or most likely both.

    Anyway this is the sort of thing that makes me both ashamed to be and proud to be American at the same time. I am proud to be American because there is hope for humanity if there are sane people like those two protesters holding up signs saying that God loves everyone. On the other hand, the existence of WBC and groups like that make me ashamed to be American.

    Oh yes, HYPNOTOAD!!!
  • Father Cat

  • linkinpark670
    im a christian, and i dont understand the people who have signs saying god hates everyone. wouldnt that mean he hates them too, and that therefore their work is entirely pointless?
  • PLA
    No, WBC are actually cool with that part. They are also not trying to convert or save anyone. Everybody's going to hell, there's nothing anyone can do about it, and WBC just wants to rub it in people's faces. They do admit it in interviews.
  • diazepam
    But then why do they "protest"? I know they're calvinist, but doesn't that make their efforts futile?

    I wonder what would happen if somebody killed Fred Phelps. Would the Westboro Church protest that? Cause that'd be some meta shit right there.

    Also, Jesus cosplay is awesome. I dressed up as Jesus for high school one year, and everybody wanted to take pictures with me.

    Fred Phelps... why does he hate so much?

    How comic fans feel about Phelps is probably mild compared to the grieving families at military funerals where Westboro Baptist Church display their hate-mongering outside of the cemetery.

    I have no respect for a man who does things like that and continues to encourage that behavior.
  • dennett316
    avatar
    The guy is clearly the ultimate troll. He will do anything and say anything in order to get attention, he doesn't believe a damn thing he or his followers say...they just say stupid shit for the sake of it.

    Why? Because he's mentally ill and his followers are stupid as hell.
  • DeathsHead419  - re:

    [quote=Fluffyman]Fred Phelps... why does he hate so much?[/quote]

    I don't think he does. I think he is a sad, attension seeking man who has taken an indefencible and horrendious stance simply to provoke a response. I wouldn't be at all startled to discover he was the sort who acted out at a younger age for attension.

    He is a sad waste of a human life and perhaps worthy of pity, were it not for the depths to which he has sunk for his fifteen minutes of fame. He has decided if he cannot be famous, he will be infamous.
