Win of the Day: Australian Busker Battles Homophobic Preacher With Music

Australian musician Axel Winter was getting ready to perform at Sydney Mardi Gras last weekend, when he noticed a man with a Bible spewing anti-gay rhetoric on the street.

“He was saying hateful things towards gay people themselves. He said at one point ‘today is the day that god hates you most,'” he told Gay Star News.

So he decided to fight back, by drowning out the man’s words with music.

Axel and some other musicians near the Pitt Street Mall set up their things and started playing Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” as the crowd cheered them on.

At one point he even took some liberties with the lyrics singing “some boys take a beautiful boy and they hide her away from the rest of the world.”

The plan worked, and eventually the preacher left.

Winter says he was raised a Christian, but he thinks everyone should be treated with respect.

“Thank you Sydney for taking a stand for equality,” he wrote on Facebook. “Whether you’re homosexual or transgender or even just confused, you’re still my friend.”

“You know I love you both,” he says. “That’ll never change.”

The brothers said afterwards that they had never been so nervous in their life, but now feel a huge weight has been lifted off of their shoulders.

Forget hurricanes and earthquakes, a gay avalanche is coming and we need to be prepared!

A writer for The Christian Post wrote an op-ed last week called “Are You Aware of the Avalanche of Gay Programming Assaulting Your Home?”

In his piece, he criticizes a number of gay celebrities as well as gay-themed TV shows and films including Michael Sam, Anderson Cooper “Glee,” “Modern Family” and “Foxcatcher.”

“The indoctrination and propaganda coming from those advocating a gay lifestyle in our country, classrooms and culture are increasing,” he writes. “We are being bombarded!”

His suggestion is that we only watch shows like “Little House on the Prairie,” and “I Love Lucy” to combat this “tidal wave of unprecedented evil.”

He also targets Ellen in particular saying:

“Ellen DeGeneres” celebrates her lesbianism and “marriage” in between appearances of guests like Taylor Swift to attract young girls.

So on her show this week, Ellen responded to the online criticism, which she says she usually just ignores.

“If you ask me, Larry’s watching a lot of gay TV,” she joked, proceeding to discuss her real agenda.

“Larry the only way I’m trying to influence people is to be more kind and compassionate with one another. That is the message I’m sending out.”
