Students Pressure Preacher off Campus

When a campus preacher comes to your school, you can always hold events to rebut his nonsense. It’s happened before a number of times.

But it’s not every day you see the campus newspaper cover the event like the Southern Illinois University Alestle did:

The full article is here:

Evangelist Keith Darrell made an appearance for the third time on campus despite the strong opposition he is used to seeing from SIU students.

Darrell reserved the free speech area in the Stratton Quadrangle from 12-5 p.m. Monday. However, he chose to leave an hour early after feeling unwelcomed by the students who surrounded him at the Rock.

While Darrell was preaching, sophomore mass communications major Meredith Wright, of Edwardsville, decided to show him what she thought about his message. Wright spray-painted “We are not sinners” on the Rock, beside which Darrell was standing.

How great is it to see students fighting back against a preacher’s madness?
