Old City Babylon: Christians and the Church of the Giant Golden Microphone, Joe Tarr, Metro Pulse
Head down to Knoxville where Southern Baptist street preachers will make sure everyone knows whether they can look forward to heaven or eternal damnation. As a response to the preachers, Knoxville youth founded the Church of the Giant Golden Microphone. Howie Johnson from the Lighthouse Baptist church stands on street corners shouting quotes from the Bible. As a response to the preachers, Knoxville youth founded the Church of the Giant Golden Microphone, mainly it seems, to heckle the Christians. 'Gleaming in a crisp white shirt and tie, Howie Johnson stands on the corner of Jackson and Central avenues surrounded by drunks. It is after 10 p.m. on a Friday night, and Johnson is telling them they're all going to hell, but he is not. Because he's been 'saved.'' -- SVB
