#SDCC: Oh yeah, the Westboro Baptist Church… UPDATED
There is a line from C.S. Lewis’s The Screwtape Letters: “The devil cannot abide to be mocked.” For some reason, I thought of it today as I contemplated the scene outside the San Diego Convention Center.

UPDATE: Rich Johnston has even more pictures and a great T-shirt.
