At this point, the Westboro Baptish Church has protested nearly everyone on the face of the planet for not agreeing with their hardliner view of the modern-day world.

Most famously (or infamously), they protest outside military funerals with signs that say thing such as “God bless IEDs,”  an activity that will soon be considered in front of the U.S. Supreme Court for its constitutionality. But the small, family-run church from Topeka, Kan., also has ripped everyone from Lada Gaga to the late U.S. Sen. Robert Byrd (D.-W.V.) this summer alone.

Last week, the comic book lovers as the Comic-Con International conference in San Diego learned that the Westboro church would be protesting outside their event with their fervor. The wiseacre response: Protest back. Loudly, ridiculously and hysterically.

Take this video, which shows some of the mayhem:

There’s much, much more on this available on the blog Comics Alliance.
