They’ve faced down humans time and time again, but Fred Phelps and his minions from the Westboro Baptist Church were not ready for the cosplay action that awaited them today at Comic-Con.
For those of you who were either not at SDCC or didn’t hear about the spectacle, the Westboro Baptist Church tried protesting the annual event in their usual ways. However, this time they were zerged with the geekiest counter protest imaginable. Signs of various geek nature were flashed by participants in all of their cosplay glory. My only regret is that I was not there to share in the moment. Leave it to the geeks to find a humorous, peaceful way to fight such hate.
