VIDEO: Fed up little girl tells Christian street preacher to ‘shut it!’

In a video posted to LiveLeak this week, a little girl who was obviously fed up with street corner preachers lets her thoughts be heard.

Here’s something that you don’t see often. In a video posted to LiveLeak this week, a little girl who was obviously fed up with street corner preachers lets her thoughts be heard.

According to the poster of the video, the outburst seems to be something that has been brewing for some time:

Every year Salem is inundated with street preachers during out Halloween celebrations. They spend most every weekend during October telling us to “Turn or Burn.” I’ve been recording their interactions with people for a couple of years now for a long running art project, and while this young guy was preaching, a little girl just ran up and started laying into him. I never even saw who her parents were or where she was from. She just sort of showed up and then ran off again.

    People should not be allowed to stand on street corners to preach using blaring amplifiers – keep it in the church where it belongs and off our public streets!

    yes indeed. that guy needs to stfu ! Plus, nothing of what he is saying is about love. It’s all about punishment, shame, and duality. With preachers like him who needs the devil. Listening to that crap IS hell.

    While I support their right to say what they like. Your blaring amplifiers point gets an “amen” from me. Especially considering the location this was filmed is a rather small area usually with many people, using amplification is just rude.

    Too bad she did not have a similarly powerful megaphone.

    I had to tolerate this same sort of rhetoric when I was in college. The nuts always seemed to come out mid day on nice days and spew their nonsense at the top of their lungs. Damn Freedom of Speech thing!

    Just to clarify the missing context here:

    This took place in Salem MA on Halloween. Now, aside from the fact that New Englanders tend to be violently supportive of minding one’s own business, you need to understand that Salem is a Mecca for Pagans, Wiccans, Thelemites, and other people of distinctly non-Christian persuasion. Halloween coincides with, and is largely derived from Samhain, one of the highest Pagan holy days. What this guy is doing is not just standing around preaching- it’s more like deliberately doing it in front of a Mosque or Synagogue during Eid or Passover.

    Yes, he has a right to do so, but doing so at that particular place and time is at best a dick move, and at worst, borders on criminal threatening or inciting a riot.

    AGAIN- It’s not about what he’s saying, it’s about when and where.

    “People should not be allowed to stand on street corners to preach using blaring amplifiers – keep it in the church where it belongs and off our public streets!”

    I guess you like Dubya’s “free speech zones”. Ah freedom…but only freedom I like.

    In the church, we can’t keep it in a building. The people are the church. And we have every right to speak out. When someone would be on the street playing music..would you yell at him…or begging for money…a man must do what a man must do!

    And in America, we have the right to tell you to shut your pie hole, and keep it in your church. Don’t like it? Feel oppressed? Join the club, only you enjoy a 70-80% majority in this country, so your cries of being oppressed are infintile and baseless.

    Junius how about disturbing the peace? The man doesn’t need big ass microphones to get his point across to like 20 people. Its just loud and annoying

    I used to live in an apartment where some guy used to pull up in a pick up truck full of pineapples and a megaphone and proceed to chant “Pineapples! Pearl Pineapples! Get your pineapples!” Over and over. ALL. DAY. LONG… This kind of disturbing the peace should be outlawed. Not just because it’s annoying, but mainly because no one thinks of those who work night shift, but we are half the work force, and we get no consideration. Plus, if ppl are interested, they’ll seek out what they want. Preaching is rude no matter how you look at it. But sure, you have a right to be rude, if you have no self-respect, have at it.

    Occupy Protestors weren’t allowed to have bullhorns, but these jackasses get to scream their message of arrogance through loud speakers.

    And then they claim they are ‘persecuted’.

    The people asking for money are doing so because they are poor. Music is pleasurable to most people. Screaming you religion at the top of your lungs and trying to force other people into your faith is MOLESTATION. Everyone is entitled to their own belief system or lack their of. You want to preach, you are free to do so, but using amplifiers and screaming your message just pisses people off. If we want your message, we’ll attend your church.

    You know, they only do it because it makes them feel superior to the people in the street. Their sins are going to be forgiven because they are “preaching the word” It is a subtle arrogance. The loudspeakers should be aginst the law for disturbing the peace. they have the legal right to preach but to be that loud is wrong. If they were playing rap music or head banger..I’ll bet there would be official complaints and the police. I have quit being nice to them. Now I say things like..”If I;m going to hell..so are you.” This is “Not what Jesus would do” or “My God loves me but he doesn’t love you is not Christian doctrine”.

    BS.. if someone was on the street with an amplified boombox playing music, you can be sure that he’d be yelled at and shut down by the police within minutes. But yelling about some imaginary abusive creep named Jesus is OK…

    Right, Nancy. Nothing stirs the devil up more than hearing the Word of God being preached. Especially about the Blood of the Lamb and His redeeming power!

    No one was ‘forced’ to listen, especially not this little witch. Poor kid. Hope she escapes the clan, soon.

    Not forced to listen? You do understand the part about “blaring amplifiers” right?? As for your “the little witch” snipe, what makes you so sure she is Wiccan?? Maybe she was just tired of a nice quiet evening probably with her family being disrupted by “blaring amplifiers”, and an arrogant bible thumping dolt who was ruining a nice QUIET walk…. I see your “words of god” and can only think Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah… Shut your pie-hole.. That little girl is not a “little witch” but an avenging Goddess…

    Ugh…can’t he read his precious book a bit more carefully? (Matthew 6:5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.) JESUS SAYS HE DOESN’T LIKE WHEN YOU PRAY IN PUBLIC.

    You have your rights and so do the rest of us. Something that gets forgotten. Your 1st Amendment Rights do not trump mine, nor mine yours. You need to be willing to accept the consequences of hollering and carrying on in public like some drunken vagrant.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
