[2012-Jun-23] God Hates Figs.

So, this comic was stupid.

The votey, though? That's something I laughed at. I'd love to do that at a protest.

Actually happened.

Also I saw a video where someone set up a charity booth by a WBC protest, and each donation would be made to an LGBT support group in the name of WBC, and they'd write thank-you letters to Fred Phelps for making it possible.

How can God hate signs? In the bible he loves signs, he puts them in loads of things.

I figured that it had happened before, actually. Which is to say the votey, not the actual comic. The sign on the actual comic isn't funny and doesn't make sense.

Maybe 'God hates placards' would be more appropriate.

No? I thought it was a clever turn on the anti-gay mantra.

I think this comic would have been much better if he'd left off the caption.
Police said they spent some time working out if they could charge the man with being armed with a weapon, as technically he was armed with part of a fish.

Yeah, I was going to come on say the same thing. On the top of the ones you linked, I've also seen the votey (here and here), and pics of people infiltrating other people's protests before (here, here and here). I'm not sure how funny I'd rate them, but they still did a better job than the comic, I think, which made no sense to me.

These are all signs I saw ages ago on Tumblr, but a quick google search of 'funny protest signs' brought them up again pretty quickly.

I don't see a lot of placards in my day to day life. Probably because I'm so wise.

Seconded. I thought it was pretty clever, and rather obvious.

I think you've made your point, Mister Anus.

Spreading the misconception that anti-homosexuality is solely in the realm of religion? Check.
Soapboxing about his anti-religious views? Check.
Complete lack of anything actually funny? Check.

Of the two readable signs and the votey, all refer to religion in some way. One specifically to Christianity. So clearly Zach intended the message that anti-homosexuality was solely the realm of religion. If he hadn't intended that, then he would have definitely put a sign in there that read something like, "Homosexuality is wrong for completely secular reasons!"

Otherwise you would have to conclude that people were criticizing the comic based on inferences they made to fit their own preconceived notions.

Hahahaha, yes that must be it. I certainly didn't ask that because I couldn't think of any secular anti-homosexual groups. No, I can think of thousands.
