The Subway Preacher
Anyone who rides the subways with any regularity in NYC has undoubtedly encountered a subway preacher at some point. There are many subway preachers of all nationalities both men and women. The least obnoxious of the group are the ones that just walk through spouting supposedly biblical quotes (personally I think most of them make that shit up to suit their needs) and then move on to annoy the next car load of straphangers. The most obnoxious are the ones that plant themselves in the middle of the car and spout their religious crap non-stop. This BOTS was unfortunate enough to have the latter on my train this morning. No one pays any attention to them and yet they continue on telling us how we're all sinners and are going to hell because of our godless ways! All the while making up bible quotes.
I am all for free speech and freedom of expression but seriously at 8AM no one wants to hear this shit. Do they honestly think they are going to convert people with their obnoxious ramblings?! I just wanted to read my book in peace in quiet but instead I had to listen to that crap for 20 minutes. So to the Subway Preachers of NYC I say "SHUT THE FVCK UP!" You have been bitch slapped!
I swear I'm really going to snap one of these mornings and actually bitch slap one of them and it won't be my fault. I am being driven to violence. Is that a viable defense in court?
