Maybe it’s his haircut?
Here’s his report:
Dateline: Monday, 07.14.08: Today I had two hecklers, a male and female in their late fifties. They began yelling at me as they were walking to the end of the line. I’m not sure what they were saying, but they actually made it a point to stop and yell. I raised my voice and continued to preach. Afterward I walked to the end of the line to hand out Gospel tracts. No one wanted them now, thanks to the hecklers.
Both turned on me and started hollaring again.
“You have no right forcing your religion on people!” the woman shouted.
The man chimed in: “You have a captive audience and you’re yelling at them!”
“You have no right to force your poison and psychological brain washing
expletive on people!” the woman screamed.
“You’re yelling at people!” the man bellowed.
“We don’t want to hear it,” the woman howled.
“I have a permit,” I gently explained, pulling it out of my pocket and flashing it to them.
“I have a First Amendment right to do what I’m doing. Why are you yelling at me now?” Finally I said, (not for their benefit, but for those who heard my preaching), “God loves you.”
The hecklers turned away and I continued to pass out tracts.
