A kiss between two male students
upstaged an anti-gay preacher earlier this week at California
Polytechnic State University in San Louis Obispo.
According to Mashable.com, the students
are Kyle Murray and Anthony Lopez. The
Huffington Post lists the preacher as Angela Cummings of
Highways and Hedges Ministries.
A video of the incident, which occurred
Tuesday, was first featured on Gawker.
In the video, Cummings is preaching in
an outside space when Murray and Lopez approach and begin to make
out. They receive a loud ovation from the crowd, which downs out
Cummings' preaching. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit

Cummings “was just beginning a rant
on traditional marriage and why gay people are evil when this
happened. Highlight of my week,” wrote the YouTube user who posted
Murray told Mashable that the preaching
was really “aggravating” him.
“People were yelling back and trying
to reason with her, which didn't work because there was no logic
behind what she was saying,” Murray
“She was spreading so much hate. And
we wanted to show her love. Show her that we disagree. Show her
that we weren't going to argue with her. We wanted to say, 'There
are gay people here and we are not okay with what you're saying.'”
a Facebook update, Cummings acknowledged her role in the
incident, then added: “Today is Israel gay pride. That saddens me.
