Earlier this month, a preacher delivering a homophobic sermon set up camp outside the Carrier Library at James Madison University in Virginia. According to reports, the radical preacher was telling gay individuals they were going to hell, in addition to telling students who identified as Christians they too were headed “straight to hell” for living a life of sin. Instead of reciprocating with hateful rhetoric, however, JMU students responded in an admirable way.
As the preacher rages on, one student began to play the guitar while others sang the hymn “How He Loves.”
Watch the situation unfold below:
“This is the way you handle it,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “This is the perfect example of: You do not defeat hate with hate. You defeat it with love. You don't defeat it with anger. You defeat it with joy.”
