Birdsong silenced in RaleighPaul, · Categories: Alumni and other friends, Amusements, General
“And no birds sang” as Keats ended his poem, “La Belle Dame Sans Merci.” But in this case, the silence befell our favorite pitpreacher, Gary Birdsong as he tried to take his redemption show on the road to the general public.
Gary has been preaching hell fire and damnation at UNC and other campuses or well over a decade that I can recall. But once he started up on Raleigh’s Fayetteville Street in front of the Wake County Courthouse, he upset the gentile dinners at Yancey’s Juke Joint who called the police.
Ryan Teague Beckwith has the story on his News and Observer blog.
The people at UNC-Asheville aren’t nice to Gary either.[YouTube]
We ibiblians have some nice pictures of a slightly younger and less hairy Gary in classic poses.
