From The Houstonian Online:
...a self-described "bible-believing preacher from Florida" has managed to cause disturbances at campuses across the country, and had sharp words for just about everyone present yesterday.
Bourgault, who has been escorted off campuses in the past by police, accused Sam Houston students of being "fornicators" and "masturbators," at one point unraveling a condom and waving it about as he spoke of AIDS.
"Brother Matt, are you saying that everyone in a frat is a filthy fornicating bum?" he asked himself. "No. Just most of them. Fifty-one percent or better. Ladies, if you are engaged in premarital sex, what does the bible call you? W-H-O-R-E. What does that spell? Whore!"
Students in the crowd initially brushed off Bourgault's claims by making jokes, however the mood quickly shifted as more people arrived and the situation became heated.
"This is not an accurate representation of Christianity," said Chi Alpha leader Kyle Volkmer.
"This man has not wept for this campus," he added.
Volkmer was among the most vocal of the protesters against Bourgault's message. He alternately read from a bible and refuted many of Bourgault's claims.
Other students broke into impromptu choruses of "Amazing Grace" and "Jesus Loves Me."
At one point, students, led by sophomore Eli Parker, formed a prayer circle (pictured left) in an attempt to drown out Bourgault.
"To everybody here, this is their new view of what Christianity is," said senior Duncan Chance. "This is not Christianity."
When asked why he and Bourgault had come to SHSU, James Bean replied simply, "To save souls."
The statement that most stands out in this article is "This is not Christianity." I can only imagine what terrible destruction Christainity could cause if Christians someday managed to acknowledge each others' Christianity! The mind reels.
But the funny thing is, this is precisely what Christianity is: a wacko in a public place shouting about fornicators. Any healthy college student should proudly proclaim his staus as a fornicator. But who was Jesus? One of the hundreds of Bourgalts on the dusty streets of Bibletown, shouting about fornicators.
These youth-group undergrads are covering their ears with their hands, singing "la la la la la," hoping no one notices the loud man reading from their own holy scripture. No amount of loud praying and praise songs can cover that up. Show some courage and honesty. Sure, you're all christians if you believe that Jesus was the son of god, was sanctified, was crucified, performed miracles, came back to life and flew up into the sky. But if you disagree with what he said, admit it and move on.
But thanks for listening, diary.
