Student gets bagpipe revenge on preacher who screamed homophobic abuse
A student at a Florida university got the best revenge against a street preacher who compared homosexuality to bestiality.
Brice Ehmig, a political science student at Florida Gulf Coast University, says she was repeatedly targeted by a regular on-campus preacher because of her gay relationship.
The preacher would often scream homophobic abuse at Ehmig, yelling at her as she held hands with her girlfriend.
However, one day she decided enough was enough – and after seeing the preacher had returned, decided to stage a brilliant musical protest.
The gay student pursued the preacher, who was wearing a ‘Jesus saves from hell’ t-shirt, playing music on her bagpipes to drown him out.
Though the preacher continues to shout about sodomy, he struggles to make his hate-filled words audible thanks to the music.
Ehmig told the Daily Record: “I have seen too much tragedy in the LGBTQ community to let a man in cargo pants tell me I am the embodiment of sin.
“I am a gay bagpiper and I’m proud.
“I decided since this is my last year at university that I should do things that make me feel brave.
“After years of dealing with the homophobic comments aimed at me by the preacher, I felt I needed to stand up against these false prophets spewing bigotry.
“I have fought hard for my rights.”
She added of his reaction: “He started going on more about homosexuality, and earned my relentless playing even more so.
“I then called over my girlfriend and gave her a big kiss right in front of the preacher and group of people watching.”
