Despite our jaded whining earlier this week about the St. Patrick's Day Parade, we fully admit that it's a great people watching opportunity. Among the many human interest stories of the day, the First Baptist Bible Church of Plainville made an appearance at the event. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Church, they're the ones who typically show up at parks and sporting events to engage in "street preaching." (SIDE NOTE: One man's street preaching is another man's annoying and gross.) Nothing screams "salvation" quite like acrylic paintings of human torture.
We caught up with the Church for an exclusive video interview.
We get that people can be jerks to these guys. We also happily recognize that they are acting well within their first amendment rights. But do they have to be so annoying about it? The drunk people peeing all over the place might be gross, but if I had kids, I would be more bothered by this guy.
If you ask us, we'll take the Park Street variation of crazy street preaching.
