So Fred Phelps and his Westboro Baptist group are planning to protest at the San Diego Comicon this weekend. What their problem with funnybooks is, I don't know. But comics writers Matt Fraction and Kelly Sue DeConnick are planning to donate 50 bucks to AIDS research if they show up, and an additional 10 dollars an hour for every hour they stay. The good Family Fraction are urging others to follow suit, as detailed on Kelly Sue's blog: http://kellysue.com/2010/07/19/lemons-and-lemonade/
And what are they calling their little peaceful counter-protest? God Loves Batman!
You're damn right He does! And so do I! We don't cotton to hate-mongerin' bastards out here on the Dork Forty. Especially not hate-mongerin' bastards who declare their hate in the name of a god that teaches love for your fellow man. This is the best, most positive "F-You" to Phelps I can imagine, and I think I'll be pledging my money out next week, too.
It's what Batman would want.
And any god I'd want to worship, for that matter.
