Homophobe chases gay man out of subway and through the streets of New York in shocking video

Adam Eli was minding his own business when he was chased out of a New York City subway station by an angry homophobe telling him to “stay in the closet!”

The man was angry that Eli, a gay Jewish man, was wearing a pink kippah. He stormed after him, following up up the stairs and out onto the street, and accusing him of desecrating the name of God.

“Any man that lies with another man, it’s an abomination!” he ranted. “You’ll be murdered for it! Take the kippah off!”

Eli caught the confrontation on video and uploaded it to Twitter, along with the caption: “Trigger Warning: violent speech, harassment. I got harassed, followed and threatened on the street today. Someone was upset that I was wearing a pink kippah, carrying a purse and had a pride patch sewn onto my jeans. I am sharing the encounter for three reasons.”

6. Oh No You Didn't

come after one of my LGBT brothers in one of our sanctuary cities with that pseudo-sanctified priggish dogma! Here's my 5 dollars to the one way air flight fund to send this self righteous radical homophobe to Topeka, Kansas to attend the 3701 SW 12th St Westboro hatefest, where 16 foot barbed wire and electrified fences should imprison these nutjobs, and another fiver to help "build THAT wall" to surround their obnoxious bullying. There's the closet in a closet behind a wall and armed guards anyone with the audacity to blather, incite and/or act in violence belong. There they could hate, hate, hate all they want without harassing and bullying anyone.
That preecher from years ago suggesting death-sentence starvation imprisonment of all the "queers" can go eat white bread baloney sandwiches with the rest of them along with all their ilk.
Sorry, this crap gets my PTSD feathers ruffled, that just came pouring out just like it would have if I'd been there to face that bully. Problem being I'd have gotten arrested for slamming that creep up the side of a store window to make him listen till his head hurt and he passed out from my hands strangling his neck.
But I loved the "kiss my rainbow flagged ass" at the end. You go, baby!
