One Twitter user responded with an ironic cartoon showing a person dressed as a woman, carrying a “pride” sign, and yelling into a megaphone at a nondescript man offering a Bible: “Stop pushing your beliefs on me.” New Testament, or religion in general.
PRIDE SEATTLE: Attendees surround a street preacher and bark like rabid dogs as music blares in the background to drown him out.Video by: @KatieDaviscourt pic.twitter.com/6AKU0I5esH — The Post Millennial (@TPostMillennial) June 26, 2023
Jesus kinda warned him this would happen. Hope he keeps his resolve.— Herman Hamburger (@LongLester) June 26, 2023
Yes he did , Matthew 10:15Jesus said , Truly I say to you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that town — D Lucky777 (@dluckyone777) June 26, 2023
Another user was less generous but no less outraged: “These people are dirt. Demand respect but give none, have no grace or regard for fellow man. A hideous display of narcissism and callousness.”
I’m not even religious and he looks strong and steady and they look like all the deadly sins wrapped up in grotesque packages.— HarmlessPirateRadio (@HarmlessRadio) June 26, 2023
It would be tempting to conclude that this “pride” event degenerated into narcissistic, exhibitionist intolerance, but that would not be true. No “pride” event can “degenerate” into the very things it exists to showcase. The music blared because the attendees would not or could not hear The Word of God. They used small flags to try to obscure the preacher’s view of his own Bible. Had the barking young man been possessed by a demon, would his behavior have differed? Whatever one believes about such things, it is impossible not to notice and ask. Meanwhile, in an inspiring display of love and forbearance, the preacher carried his cross with a dignity worthy of our Savior. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
