A homophobic preacher spreading hate “in the name of God” on the James Madison University campus in Virginia got more than he bargained for when faced with a group of students that fought back with a pretty powerful weapon: love.
According to social media reports the preacher began his “sermon” by telling a gay couple holding hands on campus that they were going to hell.
Thankfully, that message was drowned out by the students who gathered around to spread their own message of love and tolerance via a Christian song by John Mark McMillon called “How He Loves.”
Led by a guitarist, it’s pretty comical–and powerful–to see hear that the preacher’s hate was so resoundingly drowned out by college students that want to share love.
When the song concluded, the teacher told the students that they are headed “straight to hell.”
Their response–meant for everyone listening? “Jesus loves you all!”
Nice job, guys!
