Spotted on Prospect Avenue: old white dudes trying to convert drunken college students to the Way of the Lord. Holding signs proclaiming, “Atheism is a temporary condition,” they spend the night stopping Street stumblers for fruitless conversations of the ecclesiastical nature.
A group of girls—a Nass writer and her girlfriend amongst them—are eager to reach a club, and thus do not stop to chat. The couple realizes the opportunity for a political statement, doubles back, and proceeds to make out in front of the elderly men. For a few moments, this provokes smiling stares of arousal—not condemnation—from the fundamentalists.
As the couple disengages and goes on their merry way, a more pious protester snaps out of his titillation to shout after them, “THAT DOES NOT IMPRESS GOD.”
