@ soakya- wrong. he wanted to make fun of her for being an idiot. You and people like you are a big problem for Christians, Republicans, and Conservatives. You obviously never hear great Christian speakers. And most likely you are not very educated. Otherwise you wouldn't be so quick to defend this lady. Instead of being attractive to others by following Christ's principles and being "Christ Like"- you are repellent and drive people away. That preacher drives people away. And then you have to insult liberals, the students and Muslims? Why? Because like the preacher, you are just looking for a fight. And ironically this comment section has turned into extension of the original joke. Thanks everybody for proving that many can't practice what they preach
@ soakya and the rest- How is he against free speech? By making a cartoon about the hypocrisy of street preachers? If there was a Muslim acting like a jerk, liberals wouldn't appreciate that either. I think what you don't understand the concept of appropriateness. Why should the university have anyone with that kind of attitude, that is intentionally annoying the students, on campus? I went to UTK and we had droves of street preachers. People would carry crosses and scream in our faces. But they were never given a special area from where they could preach. They were free to say what they wanted as long as they didn't break any laws. And the students were free to say what they wanted too. When the crowds grew large, the police would come observe. But they never had to arrest any students because AGAIN- everyone was free to speak, yell or whatever. It was truly free speech.
Where to even begin....the cross is gaudy, tacky and completely counter productive. Get this through your head- the people that the church has trouble reaching...oftentimes the ones that have trouble with being overly intellectual or pessimistic- they think your huge crosses are idiotic. The best way to teach people about Christ is through his teachings.
It doesn't take courage to build a huge cross in the middle of the bible belt. It only takes money and a group of people that love big huge showy displays.
So if you think the cross will reach someone who wouldn't have been reached- you're wrong. Because that person already has plenty of loud showy symbols and teachers available.
