Street Preacher Gives Absurd Rant on Marriage

A street preacher named Cedric Hatcher delivered a really dumb, rambling screed in front of the city council in Birmingham, Alabama about same-sex marriage. It includes several false and bizarre claims and something about people marrying cockroaches.

“In two more years — in 2016, February the 9th — you won’t be able to marry your partner that you played football with no more,” Hatcher claimed. “You’re gonna be able to marry your dog, you’re gonna be able to marry your cat, you’re gonna be able to marry your snake, you’re gonna be able to marry your rat, the roaches. Some of you been with the roaches so long you might as well gonna marry the roach, he been around the house so long. You’re gonna be able to marry your broom, your mop. Ain’t we going crazy in this world, ya’ll?”…

“I can barely say ‘Praise the Lord’ in public now,” he said. “I might go to jail, I might threaten a lawsuit on the job. You can’t tell a person to have a blessed day. Ain’t it sad?”

Funny how people every do those things he thinks he can’t do. Stupidity and paranoia from a bigoted Christian preacher? How predictable.

    My aunt was an emergency room nurse for a while and based on some of the things she told me, I strongly advise against ‘marrying’ any household utensil.

    Hatcher is sliding down a slippery slope.

    Cedric Hatcher states:

    You can’t tell a person to have a blessed day.

    This is the most passive-aggressive phrase I currently encounter in meat world. The frequency I hear it is also increasing.

    I don’t respond.

    Sir, that could have something to do with your bullhorn. Please, once again, note that it has a volume control. It needs to be turned down. No, they do NOT have to hear you when they are inside their cars with the windows rolled up. You cannot interfere with traffic. This is your last warning.

    Sad thing is the likelihood that there were at least half a dozen nodding heads and random amen’s from the council chamber approaches <1 which is nominally the indirect proportion to the assembled IQ.

    i.e

    IQ goes up…the amen's go down…IQ goes down the amen's go up….simples!
