Watch: Gay biker confronts bigoted preacher in Glasgow

A Glasgow cyclist gives a homophobic ranter his due.


“I love me, I don’t need a god to do it.”

— A cyclist in Glasgow, Scotland, responding to the rants of a bible-toting anti-gay protester in full rant mode.

The preacher was spouting such vitriol as gays are going to hell. A passing cyclist says “I’m gay, so say it to me.” To which the preacher responds, “God still loves you.” The cyclist then shoots back the above response.
