When a man with a rucksack began reading what appeared to be excerpts from the Old Testament, train passengers began to get frightened. This caused hundreds of thousands of commuters to experience major travel disruptions and delays during rush hour on Monday morning in London.
When the train stopped at a red light outside the south-west London rail station, a “doomsday preacher” began reading. The incident, which took place at about 8:30 am just outside Wimbledon station on a South Western Railway train running from Shepperton to Waterloo, forced Network Rail to switch off power in the area, causing long delays.
“He was quite well spoken and calm,” said Ian O’Sullivan, a witness, and fellow train passenger. “He said, ‘Ladies and gentlemen, I’d like to talk to you about something and that something is the word of the Lord, Jesus Christ. He’s here to heal your sins. The Bible tells you that homosexuality is a sin and sex before marriage is a sin. You need to repent.’” Other witnesses also said that the man talked about “doomsday” and the “afterlife.”

Although O’Sullivan didn’t find the “doomsday preacher” to be any sort of a threat, others apparently did. “It suddenly became a Chinese whisper and [there was] panic,” he said. “It was quite a full train, but the area around him was suddenly quite empty.”
“We could hear a woman [outside] saying there’s a man and he’s going to kill everybody,” he said. “But everybody in the carriage said he never said that.”
He said the guard came to the carriage, spoke to the now “sheepish” man and searched his bag, but found only a water flask and books.
“The guard did a brilliant job of trying to keep things under control,” O’Sullivan said. “He established pretty quickly that there wasn’t a threat.” -The Guardian
Many evacuated the train out of fear, after prying open the doors, and the guard had to allegedly tell people not to touch the rails while standing on the tracks or they could die.
What a journey – passengers on the front coach evacuated the train after mishearing someone and thinking he was a terrorist. #Wimbledon

No one knows what happened to the “doomsday preacher,” however. He seems to have vanished in the melee after causing hours long delays.
A very similar incident happened (I believe it was last week), they physically removed the man in Portland OR off the train. He was well dressed, had good manners and was very calm and friendly. It’s pretty messed up when people freak out because somebody is trying to tell them about God.
If he was reading from the New Testament, well….
People come out like this at times, thinking they are doing God’s work or answering a call from God.
God is not going to tell any person to put on a ruck sack, fill it with explosives and kill themselves by suicide and murder others.
The same type of evil as was in Las Vegas, except in this case, no violent activity. But look at what is caused. Fear and chaos.
What will it eventually do? The public will permit additional freedoms to be taken for safety and security.
Just my opinion…
American Thinker – Blacks, Crime, and the Bended Knee… blacks committed half of all homicides in the United States despite comprising only 13 percent of the population
Wasnt that OJ feller a football player too
In that there National Fellons League
Sweet Christ!!! There’s a guy here in my town that hits the stoplight intersections (and has done so for years) with the same spiel and what I’ve come to recognize as the same old signage he’s had for years. I’d dare say I’m not ready to run screaming to a corner due to his efforts. Time to grow a pair or put on your big-girl panties people. I mean, ‘c’mon people’ grow up.
Nailbanger, the last time I checked, the homicide rate for blacks is closer to 75% according to the FBI and DOJ statistics. At least 95% of their victims are other black people. It’ll be interesting to see how long OJ survives outside the big house. I heard the relatives of Kidman and Goldman will once again try to collect money from him. Lotsa luck with that one.
Nailbanger, wouldn’t it be some shit if that ‘doomsday preacher’ turned out to be HCKS? Now THAT’S a scary thought, LOL!
According to dude in the picture, rapture was on May 21, 2011.
Is he still working at the car wash?
“If the glove don’t fit you must acquit”. Everyone saw that verdict coming before it happened. Talk about getting away with murder legally. The fact that people feel super uncomfortable in the present climate of terrorism and doomsday outlooks speak loudly when street preachers read biblical end time accounts, religious speech is free speech. Scare and guilt tactics work, proof enough the government depends on them to remain in control.
It’s all a massive cluster fuck. . . .the entire world has become trash.
Ignoring the rights of a captive audience seems to be picking up speed. The broadway cast of Hancock stop the performance to deliver a message to the Vice President. The NFL players kneel during the playing of the national anthem. Taking over the microphone and forcing others to listen is in fashion. Imagine if the pilot of a transatlantic flight decided to deliver a lecture for the full flight? Imagine that he was suicidal? How about the idiots who bounce a ball in your neighborhood? Was the world ever so inconsiderate?
Considering the associations of the last, several, mass shooters, the fundie should probably running away from the Portlandians.
That being said, false prophets should really. be. shying. away. from strict, Old Testament Law. Really. Tell people not to go there. Probably, say something about grace, if you want to be a sheister.
Don’t tell the Tares anything . Anyone who hasn’t seen buy now is a Tare. Let them burn.
It is amazing to see what is said, and what athiests hear.
