    Crazy Preacher Day. . .

    Anyone seen these guys on campus?

    They come to my school every single year, and they piss me off to no end. I've been a Christian my whole life, and if that means I have to be like these guys, then I'm switching religions.

    To put thier message in a nutshell:

    "God is going to take all the homosexuals by the testicles and throw them into the firey rectum of Hell!"

    "...and he's gonna get rid of the lesbians lickity-split!"

    A woman's natural purpose is to be at home and having babies. Otherwise, she is a sinner and going to hell.

    If you have pre-maritial sex, look at pornography, masturbate, get an abortion, listen to rock music or have holes in your jeans (yes, they said that too) you're going to Hell.

    If you are not perfect, you're going to hell. These guys claimed that they havn't sinned once since the day they were "saved."

    If you are in a fraternity, you are a pervert. Period, end of story.

    If you're a woman and you dress in anything that shows more skin than jeans and a tshirt, you're a whore.

    Oh, and if you are married, any sexual act that cannot create a child is a sin. Therefore, no oral, no anal and no manual stimulation.

    These preachers even take thier kids to these colleges, and they seem to think it's OK to expose thier children to a crowd of pissed of college kids yelling obsenities to thier parents.

    Take a look around thier website. You'll find that about 1 in 12 comments on the site are positive, and that EVERY news article they post is negative. Hmm. . . shouldn't that mean that you're methodology is whacked out!?

    I could keep going on this, but I'm not going to, I'll see where the discussion goes. . .

    ive never actually met anyone that was like that, but they way you described them, they sound similar that family that shows up to Fallen Soldiers Funerals, and yells obcenities to their family.

    "they died because we allow Homosexuals to exist" and anyone who tries to talk to them "are perverts" etc...

    freedom of speech can suck sometimes...

    Yes it can. . . in fact, these guys even know the legal definition of harrassment. Anytime someone in the crowd accused them of harrassment, they quoted the law to prove that they were not. It's pretty pathetic.

    That's one of the things that really bothers me. You could have a bunch of Christians running around on campus screaming their views, but if it was some other group, be it Hindu, Atheist, Islam, etc, all the Christians (well not all) on campus would start complaining. Why does it seem that the Christians and the Muslims get all the crazies? When's the last time a *** showed up at a soldiers funeral and started hurling insults? When's the last time a Hindu blew himself up in a religious protest?

    at least when they come to the door you can slam it on their face. How about Four Jehova's Witnesses who come to the library everyday, sit around you, wont shut up, and act like they are five year olds...at Nine in the morning?

    The obvious question, what are you doing in a library at 9 in the morning?

    I don't know if they are necessarily the same group, but yeah, we get "Jesus screamers" a couple times a year. Guys that hand out little bibles to everyone too. I got a "Jews for Jesus" pamplett once too.

    I think if they tried that at an Australian university they'd torn to shreds by an angry mob.

    A tshirt!? What kind of jezebel would wear such flimsy clothing!?

    There are a lot of rumors that float around that all these preachers do is try to get students to attack them. . . be it a push/shove or throwing objects at them. . . whatever. Supposedly, anytime the students get physical, the preacher guys sue the school for damages. I have yet to see proof of this, however, every time the preachers are there, so is campus security.

    Bro Jed roXorZ, ur just angry that they speaka tha truth!

    I used to get a kick out of the students that would argue with them, as if they were going to prove something to these people. Always remember the quote, "Never argue with fools..."

    Nothing anyone says to these morons is going to change thier mind, that is for sure, but I always stand up to them because I don't want people like them giving real Christians a bad name. I know, it's almost a fruitless endeavor, since people give Christianity a bad name all over the place, but I figure I can at least do my part here.

    Seriously. Women shouldn't wear anything but dresses. Or skirts. Skirts are okay as long as they touch the woman's toes.

    Even if not for the lawsuits, people like that have a hard-on for self-martyrdom.

    also true. I find it hard to believe the a lot of the stuff they say doesn't constitute harrassment. I mean, for goodness sake, I was standing right there when some girl walked by on her way to class, she didn't even say a thing, then the preacher points at her and screams "That woman is dressed like a whore and she's on the fast track to Hell!!"

    Is that not harrassment? Defamation of character?

    Probably not. I'll tell you what though, you should start a counter-group that stands right next to them screaming at them that their interpretation of the scripture is wrong and they'll be going to hell for all the hate they spread.

    Oh I'm sure I could get enough people together to do it. . . I'm not sure what exactly would come of it though. . . unless we can scream louder and longer than they can. These guys turn more people away from Christianity than they make converts. . . just wait til thier Judgment Day when God says "Not so well done, bad and unfaithful servant. . . to the fire with you!"

    I really wish there was some overseeing group that licenses who can and cannot use the Christian name. I know it really isn't in the spirit of things, but these guys are slanderous in my eyes and are pulling stuff out of their ***. Jesus(who is the ONLY source of doctrine for Christians, not the OT) never said people with torn jeans are going to hell or that rock music is dangerous.
