Busybody organization One Million Moms, they of the failed anti-Ellen Degeneres JC Penney protests, the failed anti-gay moms in catalogs JC Penney protests, and failing anti-GAP Two Dudes Being Gay on a Billboard in LA protests, is predictably up in arms over the re-launch of the Green Lantern as a gay super hero. But when they posted a link to a news story on their Facebook wall along with a "Can you believe these sinning homos?" type comment, response wasn't what they expected; in fact, it was downright supportive. OMM removed the post in an attempt to scrub the evidence, but not before their blunder was forever preserved in .jpeg.

The good guys are winning! And they didn't even need the Green Lantern's help.
