Tony Miano, open air preacher, UK, contrast between “Angry man, loving child”
Tony Miano believes he is loving strangers when he tells them they are haters and murderers at heart. He typically speaks very loudly in a megaphone and singles out people to tell them they are haters and murderers. He doesn’t seem to ask if they are Believers. He just assumes they are on their way to hell.
Tony Miano is in UK right now and just today uploaded this YouTube. It’s only a few minutes long. Here is the YouTube description:
As Chuck Bosio preached the gospel, at the Tower of London, Tony found himself in a brief confrontation with an employee of the Tower of London who had been heckling the team throughout the day. After that brief exchange, a precious little two-year-old approached Chuck while he was preaching.
The contrast between the angry man and the loving child was both stark and beautiful.
Notice that Mr. Miano chooses to soften his posture and demeanor when a little child comes up to the other open air preacher, Mr. Bosio. Miano treats her kindly. His voice softens, he shows love to this mother and child. (This is normal behavior that we’d expect from Christians and unbelievers alike, right?)
And then as the mother and child walk away, as if a switch was flipped, Miano sees a gentleman he recognized earlier and accuses him of being a murderer and hater.
This is messed up, folks! But what it does show, and now we have record of it, is that Tony Miano is in full control of his behavior, his tone of voice, and the words he chooses.
So, if we follow Mr. Miano’s logic on evangelism, did he miss an opportunity and actually show hate towards this child and mother by not telling them they are murderers and haters? If he really loved them, wouldn’t he have told them about their hateful hearts?
Using Tony Miano logic, my conclusion is this: Tony Miano hates this mother and child. He must not care if they are going to hell.
