Okay I know I haven't in a while, but I'm a college student with 2 jobs... give me a break! I'm actually in the middle of writing 4 new hubs. One of which is on Brother Micah.
If you don't know who he is, google him. I'm just wondering what your opinions are of him. I already have the opinions of college students (the demographic he aims his work on). But I would like yours!
He is completely deluded with himself, and uses sensationalism to get attention, whether positive or negative. He is essentially a publicity vampire who sucks anything he can get out of a crowd, the media, etc. He'll never be able to get enough of himself in that way. The sheep who follow him are looking for something a bit radical, and so temporarily, they jump on board till the party gets boring.
Thank you Daniel! Very descriptive, I like it! Do you feel he is accomplishing anything with his "work"?
The only thing he's "accomplishing" is the further polarization of our already divided youth, which isn't something of which to be proud.
Stomping on the "Agree Button" rill, rill hard, Maddy!
Thank you Maddie. For the crowd today they seemed to all be against him. Even the Christians, who felt as if he was just giving them a bad name.
Personally, I think his ego is ruling everything he does. He is too calculating to get the next big effect to really have any value. However, those who follow him are probably on the ultra-conservative bandwagon, and so they see him as a savior for their cause—twisted as it may be.
If he is accomplishing anything, it would be to divide the masses, not unite them. He is stratifying one part against the other to promote his hate talk, and those who are angry about him are responding (very ironically) in kind, which doesn't solve any problem at all. Just perpetuates more of the same.
My personal feeling for these dudes is that they need to be completely ignored. Any attention will just spur them on. If no one ever gave a shat [hehehe] about them, they would be so depressed they'd have to rethink their strategies.
So in summary, I think what he's accomplishing is division, not unity. So how "god-like" is that?
Exactly opposite of this guy is Zakir Naik, who preaches islam and hates United states to the core. He did few stunts with bible preachers as well. Many of his audience are now convinced that US citizens and US is evil against islam. There is lot of junk videos of his public stunt which was aired on Peace TV (Ironic isn't it ?).
It seems that hate will always make a lot more money than peace, for those who perpetrate hate. Look at all the hate commentators on TV and radio and see how much they make. So this guy, Zakir, is just one little nut in the big bowl of nuts.
How many peace advocates do you suppose became wealthy for advocating peace and unity? How many gave their lives? More often the case is that those who advocate peace and unity live simple lives with little in material things of the world.
Look at Ghandi, Mother Teresa. Even Count Leo Tolstoy wasn't interested in his title and money in the end. Only his wife, and the division was great between them and he basically lived a celebate life after a period of time.
Sensationalism does not lead to peace or unity.
sorry cole, I could only get through 52 seconds of his youtube video... it's an insult to the intelligence of those college students who were taught to think on their own and make sound choices.
Thank you everyone for your comments. He was on campus recently and so I was just thinking about his logic and whether he is really spreading the word of God and love.

Do you write every day?I find that now that I'm writing hubs I want to write everyday. Even if its just a personal blog post I come up with an idea to write about and put at least 500 words on the screen. I find that it keeps my mind active and allows me ponder matters other than my classes....

Hello.I am working on my first hub and I hit save to take a break, when I came back to edit it, it says, "this hub is incomplete and in danger of being deleted". It gave me the option to "unpublish" it, and so I hit that, but I didn't hit "publish" it in the...
