"Brother Jed" and "Sister Cindy" were at my college today
Among the things I was told after they learned I was lesbian are the following:
- “Have you thought about being cured?”
- “There’s a penis out there for you.”
- “God loves the Lesbos, I love the Lesbos— and that’s why I want to save you.”
- “How are you going to fulfill your usefulness if you aren’t going to have a kid?” (To which I said I’d like kids and one of them said…)
- “Turkey basters?!”
- “Women should obey their husbands”
- “Penises need to go in the vagina— you shouldn’t be a vagina-licker”
Siiiighhh. And these people use the Bible to “confirm” these beliefs. Come on, folks. -.- Though, I do appreciate that they said “We are not a part of the Westboro Baptist Church, we love all of you, we love the homos—we just want to save them”
Did you see Brother Jed today?
He’s back and crazier than ever! I know I already did a post about Jed this summer, but that is besides the point. Jed was ranting about everything from homosexuals to pink elephants. Following my Communications 1200 class I headed on over to Speakers Circle to listen to the rants. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Jed he is a radical Christian who lives by every word in the Bible. This man is so over the top and narcissistic (being that he believes he is a great preacher) that many fellow Christians and believers of God are humiliated by his representation.
No one ever goes to just listen to Jed, they go to question his beliefs.
Check it out sometimes if you want to fill some time in between classes. No one can be certain when Jed will show up to the circle. Your best chances of catching him are on days with nice weather.
#6. Protest Brother Jed (and all the other evangelical morons)
Occasionally you will see people like this hanging out in Bloomington, either on Kirkwood or outside of Woodburn Hall. They like to tell us that we are all going to hell for one reason or another. Whether you believe in women’s rights, practice another religion, or enjoy the occasional alcoholic beverage, Brother Jed would like to warn you that you’re doomed. These talks always attract a large angry mob of protestors, and it can be very fun to watch.
