As I waited to cross busy Harbor Drive, I struck up a conversation with Joshua. He told me that most people ignored him as they walked by and some shouted slurs and insults at him. He mentioned that "many were mad that some churches are against homosexuals being able to marry."
He seemed to be at peace with the fact that most were not really interested in what he was doing there. I offered to help him more assertively pass out some pamphlets directly into the hands of passersby and he declined my aid.
Eventually, the light to cross was green and I went on my merry way but I was pleased that this young man from Korea, who should have been a Buddhist, was a Christian and a (somewhat) proselytizing one at that!
