WATCH: Gay UT students make out in front of anti-gay preacher Jed Smock

Anti-gay preacher Jed Smock is apparently on a tour of universities in Texas, and we can only hope he’s headed to the Dallas area soon. The first video shows two gay University of Texas students locking lips in front of an outraged Smock, and the second one features Smock’s rendition of his infamous “It’s Not OK To Be Gay” song at Texas A&M. This guy is really a lot of fun.
