Watch: Wonderful University of Texas Homosexuals Make Out For The Evangelist

What do you do when you find a homophobic evangelical preacher exercising his First Amendment rights at the University of Texas-Austin campus? Well if you’re friends Brett and Ben, you grab a camera and “show them how fun sinning can be.” It seems to have gotten some attention: “We got lots of approval from the crowd, and even ran into people a few blocks away who told us that we were awesome.” And now the whole Internet!

      This guy is not an actor, really! He was on the Cal State Chico campus (where I go to school) last September, or early October. He had about 4 other guys with him. He looked the same, even had the same stupid cross-stick. And a dumb black fedora type hat. I argued with him for about an hour, and won. Because I actually study the bible. He’s one of those ‘ministries’ that goes around to various colleges to ‘evengerrrlizze’. Total douchebag.

      It is sad that there are so many people with such worthless lives (or at least they feel their lives do not mean enough) that this what they have chosen to do with their time!

      Whether you follow religion or not, you should know that you only get judged based on your own actions, so the fact that there are homosexuals that do not deny themselves has no baring on whether you get into heaven or not.

      So they should mind their own fucking business!

      I saw someone above mentioned Brother Jed. You can’t forget about his sidekick Sister Cindy. The rumor was that U of F would invite them in to do their thing during dead week before finals to provide some entertainment around the libraries. Don’t know if that was true but it was definitely entertaining as they came across as the school jesters while calling everyone in site fornicators.

He claimed every guy that masturbated was gay because they had sex with themselves, and they are their own gender. I got some applause when I pointed at all the other guys and told him if all those frat boys were gay I’d have a lot easier time getting a date on Saturday night. ;)

Something like he was a-preachin’ one day, and she was the feminist-abortionist-fornicator- journalist on campus, and they talked and she had a magical change of heart. And they’ve been a-preachin’ and a-copulating da child’n ever since. Total nut.

      I think these evangelical ‘Christian’ hate preachers are the worst possible advertisement for their partilcular extremist sects. Imagine being sentenced to spend eternal life with them. Most sane people would be checking out of Heaven asap if that’s the sort of people they’re going to be stuck with for all time. Who wouldn’t rather spend time in ‘the other place’ with their gay-supportive families and friends? I know I would!

      There are more than 34,000 denominations of Christianity on the planet, so you can easily find a religion to suit your prejudices, and your budget. Go Google it and you will find out. Many nowadays ordain openly lesbian and gay clergy, and warmly welcome LGBT parishioners into their congregations with open hearts, open arms and open minds, clearly not something that sandwich board loony has been blessed with.

      But in our war against unreasoning hate, they’re kinda doing us a favour, because they remind us that “the price of freedom is eternal vigilance”.

      you girls do realize that by kissing in front of the rev guy you are shoving homosexuality down his throat right? Stop getting excited I didn’t say anything about shoving something down your throat.
      The rev doing a protest is shoving religion down your throat.
      so by kissing you are actually doing the same thing he’s doing.
      you’re actually lowering yourself to his level of idiocy by forcing your beliefs on him, which is exactly what he’s doing to you. So really you haven’t accomplished anything by doing what you did.
      Do you get it yet?

      Homosexuality was not shoved down the rev’s throat, which would require inserting a male tongue or penis into his mouth! Seriously, though, if a guy had kissed his girlfriend in the presence of the rev, would that mean heterosexuality was being shoved down his throat? I’m pointing it out because of the obvious double standard.

      Good ol’ Brother Jed Smock!!

      I remember him about ten years ago at Bowling Green State University here in Ohio (which he’s visited twice a year for decades!).

      As I was walking up, he had just sat down and one of his little acolytes was preaching that evolution was a lie and that the earth was only tens of thousands of years old. This was red meat to this unrepentant NASA nut!

      As I began to shred the boy’s myths by asking him if the Earth was as old as he claimed, how could the Apollo astronauts bring back rock from the Moon which were *billions* of years old? Why haven’t scientists found human bones at the same geologic level as the dinosaurs, and why have they found older, human-like ancestors?

      Well, ol’ Jed couldn’t stand for that, so he rear out of his chair and roared at me, “You’re a MAAAAAAN, aren’t you?”

      He then tried to berate and embarrass me, even claiming that I went to the womens’ restroom to hear them pee! I couldn’t believe that one!

      Suffice it to say, a ripped ol’ Jed a new one, telling him that there’s nothing he could say that would make me feel ashamed, and a few other choice words that ended up getting me an ovation from the students!

      Sadly, Jed and his family are just like Phreddy and his cult. Self-appointed moralists and bigots.

That’s the real definition of Love. It’s that truly acheives tolerance and understanding. Don’t spread hatred and bigotry. Don’t u want to coexist with the non-homos?

      You missed my point. Love is the ultimate retaliation for Hate. What you are now doing is Preaching to me, however you are preaching to the converted.

      Having said all that feel-good stuff, let me add that I believe there are times when a soft response is seen as weakness. It sure as hell did not achieve anythIng with Adolf Hitler. People who do not understand love, or gay love just laugh at this approach. Different situations sometimes call for different strategies.

      @J.Starr: Retaliation? Nope, it’s called protest and that’s how civil rights have been gained many times. It’s not illegal for two men or two women to kiss in public in the US. No punches were thrown. No laws got broken. No one got hurt.

      If you want to debate the topic, I suggest you do some serious thinking beforehand, because so far nothing you’ve said is persuasive. You’re still pretending to be “okay with the gays” but in reality you’re still think “ICK” when you think of 2 dudes having a little snog.

      #59 J Starr – “forcing your beliefs” on someone is engaging them when they are walking down the street and you just start talking to them. Extreme example – you would hold them and make them listen. Or non-physically – you own a company and you require the employees to listen to your brand of religion for 20 minutes each morning. Get the idea? The “reverend” invited a debate by making a statement by holding his poster – negative statements generally do that.

      PS you never did answer why guys kissing is “retaliation” but a straight couple would presumably not be.
