WASHINGTON — Bible-believing street evangelists warning against all sin, including abortion and homosexuality, were shouted down, spat on and had water thrown on them by participants of the Women’s March on Washington on Saturday afternoon.
As hundreds of thousands of Americans descended to the nation’s capital to stand for “women’s rights” and protest President Donald Trump in the demonstration organized by pro-choice groups like Planned Parenthood, various groups of Christian believers also took the streets to warn the predominantly-liberal crowd about what the Bible has to say about sin.
Along Pennsylvania Avenue, a group of over 10 street preachers from various states branched off into two different huddles — each with a megaphone and signs warning that “hell awaits” those who sin and calling for people to repent.
Some did not take kindly to what the street preachers were saying.
Kerrigan Skelly, a street evangelist from Kentucky, told The Christian Post that he was spit on while speaking over the megaphone. Skelly and witnesses tell CP that the person who spat on him was a lesbian woman.
“I don’t remember exactly what she said but she spat in his face,” Joseph Neigh, an Army veteran and D.C.-based evangelist affiliated with the group, told CP. “That has happened to me before. People are convicted and they’re are just operating according to their flesh. We expect that to happen because they are living according to the flesh and we shouldn’t expect anything less because people killed Jesus because He preached righteousness and called people to repent. There have been a lot of people who have done dirty dancing around us, flicked us off, cursed at us but we are not going return evil for evil. We say, ‘God bless you.’ We are not out here casting stones, we are throwing life preservers.” (Click to Article)
