Is that the preacher who was all on board for supporting the Republican party's more asshat policies? Or am I thinking of another black preacher? His name is familiar, but I'm running out the door and apparently too lazy to Google ...

You're thinking about Ken Hutcherson of Watchmen On The Walls.

Thanks - I'd hate to think ill of the wrong guy.

(Though I do like how the obit is written. Hallelujah for creativity in death.)

I know, right?

I was expecting you had signed the guest book...LOL.

I don't know who he is, but he reminds me of the street preacher I see on Peachtree Street, downtown, who often dresses in pink, purple, orange, and all other solid color, ethnic-type suits, waving his Bible in the air as he condemns just about everything and everyone.

Yes...that's the one. I've seen him get into arguments with people walking by. I really wish people like him would go do their thing in their churches, and not yelling at people on the street. It's very annoying.

We have one here that hangs out on Broadway, only it's an old lady and she's quite loud. When I used to live there on Broadway, I'd offer to buy her lunch or bring her something cool to drink in exchange for letting me get a nap. When it stopped working, I put my stereo speakers out the window of my loft and blasted Judas Priest's Turbo and Metallica's Master Of Puppets albums.

I bet that was hilarious. Drown her out with loud music. I would have loved to have seen that.

We had a guy like that in Knoxville, too - he would just pick random days to stand out on a corner in the middle of Market Square. He wouldn't really grab passersby - he just preached and railed and hopped up and down for all and sundry to try to avoid.

I haven't seen him there in a while, either. However, I figure like the flowers in the Spring, he'll return to that street corner dawning his colorful garb...pissing people off with his hate filled speeches. :-)

OMG I want to go too... that hat is FIERCE!!!!!!

He was beat for Jesus in that hat, gurl!

he has a daughter named "Shantel".. that is what my mother was going to name me, but my Nanny talked her out of it.. didn't want me getting the nickname "Shanni"

Better than "Sheeny"!

as he reposes amidst the silken draperies of his mirrored onyx couch

Damn. Now I'm going to have to change my own plans. Can't copy-cat like that, that's cheap.

Ain't that it?

I was STUNNED that nobody mentioned that up until this point.
9th-Mar-2008 11:03 pm (UTC) - Glory, Glory Hallelujah!
Since I first read the obit, I keep hearing an endless loop in my mind of "he reposes 'midst the silk drapes of his mirrored onyx couch" to the tune of The Battle Hymn Of The Republic...

(BTW, major major Icon Love)
