I was reading an article about the WBC picketing victims of the Boston Bombings.  Everything they've been spouting bore a striking resemblence to the rhetoric of Zachary Comstock (Bioshock: Infinite).  I guess you could say that Comstock represents religious zealotry in all its forms, but I feel as if the WBC would be right at home in Colombia.  Thoughts?

I really don't think so. There have been many religious extremists throughout human history, and I don't think the WBC had anything to do with the creation of Comstock's character.

No. He's representative of a variety of historical figures and attitudes relative to the time period, as seen in the Columbia setting.

I think he just represents religious extremesists through time and not any particular religion and church
