In a video quickly going viral, a gay man confronts a so-called “preacher” spewing hatred on a New York City subway, and has the amazing clip.

During his rant before the crowded subway car, the preacher compared gay men to pedophiles and claimed “Michael Jackson died because he was gay,” among other crazy things.

Usually when someone starts yelling on a subway, most people ignore it, fearing the lunatic could be dangerous – but not this rider.

“You teach hate,” the man, wearing a khaki coat and an oversized fuzzy hat, shouted back, while never getting aggressive with the preacher. “You are false. You are a false prophet. Do not listen to this man. He’s scared. He’s full of hatred.”

As the preacher continued his anti-gay rant, the man kept standing his ground and revealed that he is in fact gay, and yes, God still loves him. “I’m a man. And I’m a good man,” he said. “And I’m a gay man and Jesus loves me! Jesus loves me!”
