Life as an “open air” preacher: “Although I have never had pieces of dead cat thrown at me, I have had people spit at me, and spit on me, I’ve had people threaten me, gay people try to give me a hug, I’ve had people curse at me, laugh at me, yell and scream, I’ve had Feminists protest me in their underwear, a Lesbian group join hands and surround me while shouting shame!, shame!, shame!, I’ve had Atheists oppose me, I’ve had Atheists applaud and support me, I’ve seen people weep over their sin in front of me,
I’ve had Muslims take pictures of me, I’ve had Satanist try and offend me with blasphemy, Agnostics follow me out to my car seeking answers, I’ve had unbelievers mock me and “Christians” want to crucify me, I’ve even had a Buddhist bake me a cake (chocolate), and I’ve had people convert under my preaching… because of the latter I would not trade the former in a million years”
