'I'm a Good Man! I'm a Gay Man!' - Watch Inspiring Subway Car Speak Out

Often it seems as though subway preachers are mostly about preaching hate. That was the case last week when a man stood up and began railing against homosexuality. It was the usual riff, you know: God hates the gays; the gays are destroying the earth; Michael Jackson died because he was gay, etc. Per usual, the rest of the train averted their eyes and shifted uncomfortably in their seats, hoping the man would stop but reluctant to interfere lest they also look like a raving lunatic.


Except one man recently decided to take a stand, rising to his feat and declaring: “I’m a good man! And I’m a gay man, and Jesus loves me! Jesus loves me!”

The subway car filled with applause as the man continued: “You are a false prophet. Do not listen to this man. He’s scared. He’s full of hatred.”

This story is even more inspiring when compared with the recent beating of a gay man on New York Citys subway, during which no one else on the train intervened, or stuck around to bear witness. 

Here is the truthtelling gay man who stood up to the preacher. Watch and be inspired:
