Westboro Babtist Church Crazies Get Conned – Comic Conned

The loons of the Kansas cult called the Westboro Baptist Church (you know the folks, the Fred Phelps clan that pickets soldiers' funerals claiming the soldiers were punished by god for America's leniency toward gays?) went to San Diego to protest the annual Comic Con convention. Of course.

But may the Lords of Kobol bless the science fiction and comics fans at the event, who staged a grand counter-protest. According to this report on Comics Alliance, the SF/comics crowd included many people dressed in genre costumes, and they chanted "'WHAT DO WE WANT?' 'GAY SEX!' 'WHEN DO WE WANT IT?' 'NOW!' while brandishing ironic (and some sincere) signs."

Go read the report; the photos are priceless, and they confirm in me the belief that SF/comics folks will one day save this planet!
