Eh, every major college campus has a crazy preacher on the quad saying the same things.
Really? I don't recall that at all. Militant lesbians, yes. People demonstrating because the janitors only made $12/hr, yes. That girl who was "a poet" who everyone laughed at who just won a Pulitzer. The slackers who are now members of Congress, not to mention those who are in real positions of power now.
The university I went to (University of Delaware)? Yes. We called him "Kirkbride Jesus Guy" because he stayed outside the Kirkbride building and listed various groups going to hell; Catholics, liberals, unsubmissive women, the "pimps and sluts" who partied all weekend, etc.
The universities I've worked at (UF and USF?). Yep. The guy outside Turlington Plaza at UF was toned down a bit compared to Kirkbride Jesus Guy, but still had his crazy days. We also had random other preachers show up: Brother Micah, for example, and his "It's Not OK to be gay" song
. And let's not forget Gainesville is the base of operations of Terry Jones
- he might not hate women, but he sure hates Muslims. In Tampa I've only seen one preacher on campus so far, but I usually walk by with my headphones on so I didn't hear what he says clearly. Seems to hate parties too, though. I'm sensing a common theme.
From personal experience, only the first guy echoed the comments in the OP; but the others are certainly arguing along the same lines. Edited, Apr 26th 2013 8:17am by LockeColeMA
