“We got the joy of the Holy Ghost!” Chanted a group of Jesus lovers as they made their way up and down Santa Monica Boulevard in the heart of West Hollywood’s LGBT Rainbow District as part of a Jesus March pop-up lead by Sean Feucht.
The Jesus Marchers gathered at West Hollywood Park at roughly 7:30pm. There was a small performance by a band and speakers acknowledged that they were about to embark upon an area occupied by LGBT people.
One speaker said he was artificially inseminated by a lesbian couple and he complained that he never heard the word Jesus for the first 16 years of his life. “There is hope for these people,” he said while pointing towards Santa Monica Boulevard.
The crowd, which also included small children, waved flags bearing Jesus’ name, they danced on the street, pounded on drums, and chanted, “Jesus! Jesus! Jesus loves you California,” while they passed Rocco’s WeHo, Mother lode, The Abbey, and made their way past Stache WeHo, towards Micky’s WeHo and then headed back to West Hollywood park.
For the most part West Hollywood nightlife patrons look amused. A video posted on Sean Feucht’s Twitter account captured some highlight’s from the West Hollywood Jesus March. The reception seemed to be jovial but some were not impressed and gave the Jesus marchers the middle finger.
