This one’s from a Portland, Oregon based group called Portland Street Preachers.
This video is far more interesting than the last one because the customers and staff aren’t afraid to talk back.
CHRISTIAN PREACHER: Target, this is your wake-up call. The Bible says that from the beginning, God made the male and female. He didn’t make transvestites. He made them male and female.
SOMEONE ELSE: Hey bro, you gotta go.
PREACHER: Jesus said, “He that justify the wicked, and condemneth the just, both are an abomination.”
SOMEONE ELSE: You gotta go.
PREACHER: Both are an abomination. Target, this is your warning, you will be judged according to God’s standards.SOMEONE ELSE: Shut up.
PREACHER: Not man, but God.
SOMEONE ELSE: Shut up.
PREACHER: The Bible says to fear God. The Bible says, “Choose this day, whom you will serve.”
SOMEONE ELSE: Shut up and leave.
PREACHER: “Choose this day, whom you will serve.”
SOMEONE ELSE: Paying customers only.
PREACHER: You need to repent, or you’re going to see the lake of fire on Judgment Day.
SOMEONE ELSE: Leave, leave, leave.
PREACHER: You will see the lake of fire on Judgement Day.
[He’s told 911 has been called.]
PREACHER: You will be judged. And if there’s Christians in here supporting this abomination, shame on you!
SOMEONE ELSE: You’re not a true Christian, you’re an asshole. You’re an asshole.
It goes on like that for a while as a security officer tells him he’s being fined for criminal trespassing.
It all seems futile, kind of like yelling at a Chick-fil-A cashier because you don’t like the company owner’s politics. The Target shoppers and employees at this particular store didn’t create the trans-inclusive restroom policy, but they’re the ones who ultimately have to listen to his yelling. It’s completely misdirected anger.
I can’t help but suspect this guy and others like him are being this aggressive only because they know they’re on the losing side of history.
