The conservative Christian hate group that tried to bully Marvel into abandoning the gay wedding in Astonishing X-Men #51 has been chased off Facebook. By us.
I was very pleased today to be notified of this story. One Million Moms, the group that was attempting to organize a protest and letter-writing campaign against Marvel Comics in order to prevent Marvel from showing a same sex wedding in Astonishing X-Men #51 has "disappeared off facebook" after comic book fans rallied to ridicule the group. The New Civil Rights Movement reports:
Earlier today administrators of the One Million Moms Facebook site posted a "warning" about Green Lantern being rebooted as gay, which they quickly pulled when over one hundred pro-gay comments flooded the post. Subsequently, they wrote a Facebook post stating they would be away for a week, possibly next week, for bible camp.
Then, sometime on the past two hours, the One Million Moms Facebook page disappeared.
It is unclear if the page was taken down by One Million Moms, or by their parent organization, the certified anti-gay hate group, American Family Association, or by Facebook.
This reporter is proud to have contributed to the shaming of a bigoted hate group that tries to oppress others under the guise of morality.
The lesson here: comic book fans are a snarky and vindictive lot. Don't fuck with us. BOOYAH! Jude Terror, out. (drops microphone)
