Old City Babylon: Christians and the Church of the Giant Golden Microphone

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
