Here is the transcript of one journalist, Bob Calhoun, with lead WBC Protester Maggie Phelps
BOB CALHOUN: So why are you out here at Comic Con today?
MARGIE PHELPS: well we're out here to say that if were to invest one fraction of the resources that you spend and invest in worshiping Batman, and the Ghostbusters and Buffy the Vampire Slayer and so fourth in reading the Bible and obeying God, this nation would not be (garbled).
BC: You seem to be pretty knowledgeable you threw out Buffy there.
MP: We read the news. It's not hard to track what's going on in this country. This kind of convention would draw a lot more people than, for instance, a convention about obeying God.
BC: What about the Promise Keepers though? The Promise Keepers fill arenas several times bigger than this.
MP: Promise Keepers. Promise Keepers, dot com, potato, po-tah-toe -- all worshiping false Gods.
BC: So the Promise Keepers are worshiping false gods as well...
MP: Of course they are. They are worshiping themselves, first and foremost. It's just another false religion.
BC: So who are the real Gods then?
MP: You mean who are the real servants? There's only one God and you know it and all mankind knows it. It's in your DNA. The Promise Keepers claim to worship the only true and living God, but instead they worship their works and self righteousness and that's every bit as wrong as these foolish people worshiping Batman and all.
BC: Okay, Batman I understand, but why picket the soldiers' funerals.
MP: Because the soldiers are dying for the sins of this nation and the whole world is looking over at those events. They are big, splashy, patriotic pep rallies. We've picketed over 500 of them. They're great, big, giant public events. Why not picket them?
BC: It's really tacky. These people are grieving. These families lost somebody.
MP: They're not grieving. They're angry with God and they're mugging for the cameras, and they're mugging for the cameras and they're bringing all their business outside... Let me finish. They're bringing all their business outside on Front Street and Main Street for everyone to talk about.
BC: At a cemetery? That's Main Street?
MP: Number one, we don't picket cemeteries. We picket on public sidewalks, 30 minutes before the funeral, and we leave when it starts. Have you ever been there picketing? I have. I see what goes on.
BC: But aren't you people just mugging for the cameras? You're here at Comic Con. You're at Ronnie James Dio's funeral. Aren't you just being fame whores just like the whores of Babylon you purport are in there (pointing to the San Diego Convention Center)?
MP: We're using any public forum available to get these words before the eyes and ears of doomed America. (Raising her voice) We are not claiming...
BC: I think you're just fame whores like the people in there (Note: Sylvester Stallone was in there somewhere).
MP: And I don't care. Now going back to what sprung you off onto that side trail, we don't claim that we're privately mourning for our dead son. They do.
BC: How are you supposed to know that though? How are you supposed to know whether they are mourning privately or not? What made you God? Does God speak to you?
MP: By their public actions. I don't care or know or care what they do in private. We don't speak to them in their private quarters. We speak to them when they come out on the public sidewalk. And that's what all of America is doing, bowing down to those dead bodies saying, "God Bless America" like a bunch of fools.
