Dove Linkhorn on a True Religious Calling

[From the movie, Walk on the Wild Side.]

PREACHER
Jezebel! That's right, I mean you! Now both of you sinners are hurrying past.
 
DOVE LINKHORN
You got no business with us mister.
 
PREACHER
Oh, sinners is my business. You and that hip-slinging daughter of Satan. You know there's the smell of sulfur and brimstone about you. The smell of hellfire.
 
DOVE LINKHORN
Who ordained preacher?
 
PREACHER
I am self-ordained son; I had the call.
 
DOVE LINKHORN
You were called by the wrong voice mister.
 
PREACHER
Lord strike this sinner down. Send a bolt down to smite and consume the blasphemer now!
 
DOVE LINKHORN
He won't hear you. Cause you no friend of God or man - standing there hollering hate to the world. God is love. God is mercy and forgiveness. Try preaching that sometime Mr. Preacher. Teach people to forgive, not to crawl in fear. Teach people to love, not hate. preach the good book - preach the truth.
