 May God have mercy on our souls.
According to Westboro Baptist Church, comics are a bad thing! Forgive me Father for I have sinned.  They say:
 

 Are you kidding?! 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.


So what do you sinners think? Are we damned?

Westburo Baptist Church is just crazy. But that is hilarious! I mean their "God Hates Fags" campaign is just disgusting to see but "god hates nerds" is hilarious! If Kitty Pryde is wrong then I don't want to be right!

Call Jim Gordon and tell him to light up the Bat-Signal it seems like some inmates have escaped from Arkham again.

Pretty much the best nerd response that could've been posted here.

i think they are hilarious 
half of their creeds and beliefs are wrong religion wise 
they constantly contradict themselves 
and their campaigns are deplorable  
they should be locked up

that is just wrong
God is a loving presence not someone who is mad at anything. He will let good people in heaven.
And then almost everyone is baned in hell people who love Eminem or other stars or actors

People get funny ideas about what God likes and doesn't like.  I used to pass a Baptist church every day, that always had funny sayings on its sign.  Spotting the pastor changing the sign one day, I stopped to tell him how much I liked the signs (I was on a bike, so I had plenty of time).  We talked for a long while, and he started telling me that no music was acceptable, except hymn music.  So I sang a song about something silly - probably praising myself, or something - to the tune of "Amazing Grace," then did a rap for him that was straight from Scripture.  He invited me in to talk to his youth pastor, who I kid you not, had just finished teaching his youth group about the bad influences of rock music. 
 
He proceeded to tell me how music takes you over, and makes you want to dance in lude ways.  I cut him off and told him God gave him free will and a brain in order to use it.  I consider myself a Christian, but unfortunately, like any other religion or cause, Christianity has its share of Granola - the fruits, nuts and flakes.

Oh great,those guys... 
Whatever Church is breeding that sort of stupidty needs to get the axe,'cause there's no way they're more for God than they are there own self-rightousness.

Actually I think that's the exact quote from the bible :)
 
There is only one problem with that, it goes against everything else Christ taught, with his "The meek shall inherit the Earth" stuff.. because I mean comic nerds as a rule are pretty meek.
