Honestly, if you want to feel good about New York, there are worse things you could do than to watch the above 2:31 clip. Listen in as the gentleman in the khaki coat and big hat systematically not only talks down an awful "preacher" ("Michael Jackson died because he was gay.") but does so to straight up applause from his fellow straphangers. "I'm a man," he says. "And I'm a good man. And I'm a gay man and Jesus loves me! Jesus loves me!"

We love you too, guy in the big hat (though we really wish people would learn to turn their damn phones over already).
