This is the sixty-first installment in The Sounds of Fundamentalism series. This is a series that I would like readers to help me with. If you know of a video clip that shows the crazy, cantankerous, or contradictory side of Evangelical Christianity, please send me an email with the name or link to the video. Please do not leave suggestions in the comment section. Let’s have some fun!
Today’s Sound of Fundamentalism is a clip from a sermon preached by Arizona street preacher Dean Saxton. This video is a good example of how street preachers deliberately inflame passions by hurling insults and slurs at their audience. In this video, Dean got more than he bargained for when a student clocked him in the head with a baseball bat. While Saxton does have a constitutional right to do what he does, I do not feel one bit sorry for him. Sometimes, what asshole preachers like Saxton need is an ass-whooping. Sadly, the girl who smacked Saxton up the side of his head now faces felony assault charges.
I don’t think that inciting riots is legally protected speech. I hope someday that this guy gets what is coming to him, legally speaking. Carrying around signs that say “you deserve to be raped” isn’t the smartest move.
I see this loser on campus hurling slut shaming insults at women all the time. Luckily studentss at The University of Arizona are a smart bunch and the crowds he draws do nothing more than laugh at and ridicule this bozo.
BTW thanks for the sight Bruce
