Rev. Samuel Chambers, 68
Washington and State Streets
How long have you been preaching out on this corner?
Up and down the street for 36 years. Do you have a donation?
Why do you always hate on homosexuality?
Because God condemns it in the Bible. God told his people, “Go with the proper nation.” God don’t want anybody to be a homosexual.
You have a CeaseFire button on—do you think it’s more constructive to tell people to stop killing?
If you go to bed with someone of the same sex, it doesn’t make a baby, so it’s killing.
Are you involved in CeaseFire?
No, not really, I’m just wearing this button.
Are you an actual minister?
Oh yeah, Church of God in Christ.
Does that church require you to preach in public?
Well no, God told me to do it. I don’t know what He told them.
Where did you grow up?
On the South Side…I’ve been married 44 years.
Last good movie you saw?
All of it’s evil.
Do you believe in Superman?
I don’t believe in no man that calls himself a Superman. The only Superman that I know is the one who died.—Leah Pietrusiak
