"You're dressed like whores!" - Christians vs Comics in San Diego


#5

He’s obviously never seen real whores before.

Also, “Official” Street Preachers? They’re branding now?


#6

I think the Comic-con attendees should just call over to the barricade and smile and compliment the protesters, like “Wow, great costume! You totally nailed the “religious psycho” [or “creepy pedophile” or “angry moron”] character! Good work!” And walk away . . . smiling.


#7

I love how the sign ends with ‘and general heathens’. You know, just in case you weren’t already caught out by being a drunkard, masturbator, fornicator, atheist, abortionist, reveller, sodomite, hypocrite, blasphemer or liar at some point in your life.


#8

I’ve been trying to work out how many of those categories I fit into.


#9

hey preacher dude: We hate most in others that which we fail to see in ourselves.
In other words, you are judging yourself when you judge others.

Try not judging anyone, including yourself, and just try to be a kind and considerate person. It’s harder than
preaching, but produces better results for yourself and the rest of the world.

So, a bunch of people obsessed with an imaginary world brought to life in a canonical text with supernatural natural elements, obsessed with arcane rules, forgotten bloodlines vaguely defined mythical geographies blurring the lines between their own reality, priorities and goals, and those of the heroes and villains in the texts they obsess over…Sounds like they should just set up a booth…


Canon Jesus was way better than fandom Jesus
#11

I do believe that those are all now census categories.


#12

Is it bad that I see a sign like that and feel like using it as a checklist?


#13

Wait, you go straight to hell just for being a hypocrite? That seems way harsh, and perhaps a bit ironic for an institution that drips in hypocrisy.


#14

Judge not lest ye be judged, preacherman


#15

Jesus said go forth in the world and spread my message but he didn’t say be a dick about it.


#16

Is there an 11th commandment? Something along the lines of

Thou shalt not exercise the imagination that God gave you


#17

If one can’t get 7 out of 10 before they die - they must have missed some cool things.


#18

/runs down the checklist

Hmmm. 8 out of 10 (I’m assuming everyone counts as a “General Heathen”). 9 depending on how loosely one interprets “sodomite”.

I’m doing good so far.


#19

I’m no biblical scholar, but I’m pretty sure Jesus’ cross didn’t have a handle on it. That dude can’t even carry the cross without a shortcut. 3/10 would not attend eternity with him.


#20

Yeah-- if the cross can’t support your own weight for three days, it could end up killing someone, possibly you. Be safe.


#21

Does being pro-choice count for “abortionist”? If so, Bingo!
Though let’s face it, the sign holder has got to be hitting at least three of those checkmarks himself…


#22

Ironically, the pitch for the first appearance of Galactus in FF was famously “The Fantastic Four fight God.”


#23

I would call back, 'Yes, I’m going to meet Boaz on the threshing floor, and lie at his ‘feet’.


#24

So what is the best way to handle these jerks?

Engaging with them is useless. They just spout random bits of bible, and hate. You can’t reason with them. I hate ignoring them because I think poor judgmental crap should not go unmolested. I once saw a young man scream “What about the pancakes!” over and over until the street jerk was flabbergasted, but I don’t know if that is the best method.

I just hate judgmental hate being paraded around under the auspices of religion.
