Comic geeks Vs. Westboro Church (AMAZING)

Amplify’d from

god hates jedi sign at comic con protest

The notorious Westboro Baptist Church protestors -- the folks who normally picket soldiers' funerals and Lady Gaga concerts -- turned out to San Diego Comic-Con this year, but they ran into resistance from a bunch of clever geeks with costumes and counterprotest signs.

Westboro thinks that comic fans worship false idols, but these Comic-Con counterprotesters didn't seem to be taking themselves too seriously. They even organized on Twitter, using the hashtag #GodLovesBatman, and got photos of their signs to the top of Reddit and Digg. This is why the geeks shall inherit the earth, my friends.

Our pals at Comics Alliance picked out their favorite awesomely geeky protest signs, so we thought we'd get in on the action, too. Here are some of our favorites, gathered from around the web.
