Christian Breakdancers at Flushing Meadows
We checked out opening night of the Billy Graham crusade last night with Cakehead. We may be sinners, but who can resist the evangelical freakshow of a self-proclaimed religious crusade. Highlights include us heckling a few teens holding “God Hates Fags” signs and seeing the Christian breakdancers pictured above. But Cakehead captures the crusade’s strangest moment best:
My favorite part of the evening was when they had the alter call. Billy said something along the lines of, “if you are open to making Jesus your personal Savior come forward towards me.” Then he said, “if you are in one of the satellite sections (where people could only watch Billy on the big screen monitors) walk towards the television screen.” The idea of these hungry christians walking towards a tv screen for salvation really cracked me up. Is this not perfect material for a zombie movie?
