Musician Takes Down Hate Preacher With Bagpipes


What comes to mind when you talk Scotland? Kilts? Religion? How about bagpipes? The latter two came into a confrontation over the weekend, in the town of St Andrews. In the town square, a loud preacher was using his microphone and an amp, shouting homophobic slants and preaching about hate instead of love, all while being ignored by the folks around the square.

Apparently sick of this nonsense, a teenage musician decided to take action and silence the hateful preacher in the most Scottish way possible, by playing his bagpipes. First he played from afar, then serenading the man as the police arrive, with the crowd cheering the boy on. Simply genius!
