Antigay preacher with a bullhorn, meet your match: A college student with bagpipes.

Brice Ehmig, a political science student at Florida Gulf Coast University, was sick of the preacher targeted her with hate speech over her same-sex relationship.

“After years of dealing with the homophobic comments aimed at me by the preacher, I felt I needed to stand up against these false prophets spewing bigotry,” Ehmig told The Daily Record. “I have fought hard for my rights.”

“I have seen too much tragedy in the LGBTQ community to let a man in cargo pants tell me I am the embodiment of sin,” she added.

The preacher carries on spewing hate but struggles to be heard over the music, attempting to shake her as she follows him. Another man follows with a sign bearing messages about Jesus dying for our sins.

She said she decided she wanted to be braver in her final year of college, motivating her to take a stand. At the end of her performance she called over her girlfriend and the two kissed in front of the men.

“Very few subjects are safe from his preaching,” Ehmig reported. “In the past I have heard him say ‘if you wear shorts like that you are asking to be raped,’ ‘porn leads to hell,’ and ‘If you study the sciences you are going against God.’

“These preachers have been on campus every year that I have been here at the University and they have all been part of the same group. They post videos on YouTube, which primarily record hostile situations, law enforcement interactions and close calls with angered citizens.”
