Guy freaks out after not being thanked for opening a door.

Some folks apparently like to share the Good News by standing outside fast food restaurants (on private property) and holding the door open for people while holding the Bibles ready to share the Gospel at the drop of a hat.

After hours of this activity at an In-N-Out Burger in Redding, CA managers finally asked the man to buy something or leave. His reaction? To throw this SCARY expletive-filled screaming temper tantrum that had families nervously leaving the building before he started pulling up one of the fake plants in the restaurant in the midst of his rage.

9. This video

provided a neat opportunity in the YouTube comments for people to start bashing religion again and generalize everybody of faith. Yes, this guy in the video is a Christian, and yes, he was acting like a fool, but still--why do some people feel the need to group all of us in a box just because of a handful of idiots like this man? Those commenters come off as close-minded and as ignorant as the man in the video, frankly.

10. And it makes one wonder just what do they value, themselves. That being said, that guy is OTT.

I feel bad for the restaurant staff having to clean up after him tearing things up. They are maintaining their cool as they try to keep order in a peaceful way. As usual, the workers get no respect from those who are too big for their pants. Just as many women and POC are treated, just trying to make the world a better place. No respect. And that's not my view of Christian, but a person who is using identity to win an argument. And yes, the bashing gets old and says more about the bashers than peaceful peeps.

14. In and Out burgers (very good product, I must say--efficient operation and the people are

nice; you can get your burger wrapped in lettuce--wish they were on the east coast) has a "Christian" association, but they don't shove it down people's throats. There are very tiny Bible verses (the numbers pointing to them, anyway) printed on the paper wrappers of their products.

This guy probably had the idea that he was in their "club" or something.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In-N-Out_Burger#Bible_verses

Bible verses[edit]
In-N-Out prints discreet references to Bible verses on their paper containers. These consist of the book, chapter, and number of the verse, not the text of the passage, in small print on an inconspicuous area of the item. The practice began in the 1980s during Rich Snyder's presidency,[39] a reflection of the Christian beliefs held by the Snyder family:

Burger and cheeseburger wrappers
Revelation 3:20"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will dine with him, and he with me."
Beverage cups and replicas
John 3:16"For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
Milkshake cups
Proverbs 3:5"Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding."
Double-Double wrapper
Nahum 1: 7 "The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him."
Paper water cups (no longer in use for customers, they are now used by employees only)
John 14:6"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me."
License plate keychain
1 Corinthians 13:13"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."
Fry Boat
Proverbs 24:16"For though a righteous man falls seven times, he rises again, but the wicked are brought down by calamity."


None of the workers have anything to say about this, that I've seen, anyway. I've only been there a couple of times, admittedly.

23. "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, and tell me to

'buy something or leave' I will come in and screameth loudly for all of YouTube to behold. I will go ape shit and teareth up thy fake plants and make of your dining room a desert." -Revelations 10:29

One had stigmata. Two of them got into a fist fight over who was Jesus.

27. There should be a law for verbal assault.

Name it after that guy. He should go to jail for interfering with a business and public safety that way. If not terrorism charges, then at least some kind of assault charges. That is atrocious.

31. This is a direct result of Republican misinformation.

 

Talk radio, False News, every single Repug parroting the same lies. They have created a monster. I hope they can control it. I doubt it.

This guy needs some therapy, he has some issues, obviously. But with all the crazy shit being put forth as truth these days, it is no wonder.
