This same sub-group started protesting a comic book store because they realized how scantily-clad the women were in the comic books how how hidden on a 7-foot shelf behind the register was a completely hidden small stack of "skin magazines" that they sold to adults upon verification. But they also put up fliers about the comics themselves.
I don't know if it has anything to do with religion. It just seems that zany human beings feel they have to protest something, somewhere, sometime.
Comic books were a major item of protest back in the 1950's but then most people just felt that looked silly and moved onto something else while the more zealous among them went on to protest fluoride in the drinking water.
I read a story about a lady protesting some PBS penguin because it's name is Pingo, or something like that. Apparently "Pingo" (or something like that) is slang for the dangly bits of the male genitalia in some language. Yet nobody protested Dick Armey about his name, at least not that I can remember. Go figure.
Some people who read the bible protest comic books and some people who read comic books protest the bible. But I haven't heard about anybody protesting a comic book based on the bible, so maybe that's the way to go.
I remember when I was growing up, I was raised Catholic and I chose St. Francis for my confirmation saint after reading the Marvel Comics adaption of his life.
Still, other bible characters could make super heroes, like Elisha and Elijah, like with all that whirl wind stuff and the summoning of the bear.
Oh, and Joshua who stopped the sun and the moon. That would translate well, maybe. Maybe NBC makes it into episodes of Heroes, or maybe they already have. I don't know I couldn't get into that show.
