Brave First Grader Stands Up to Anti-Gay Preacher Perfectly

Pin It
Zea Bowling, an Ohio first grader, knows that sometimes, silence speaks louder than words. The adorable girl was attending ComFest music festival and celebrating pride on Saturday just one day after same-sex marriage was made legal in 50 states when she was approached by a ranting preacher and religious protestors.

Undeterred by his yelling, Zea stands calmy with her rainbow flag in his face as he continues yelling. Impressed adults ran over to high five her as she stared him down in this video that her dad took and posted on Facebook. It quickly went viral, and one Ohio retailer was so inspired by Zea that they created a t-shirt with the powerful image.
Zea BowlingZea's awesomeness combined with the kids' wit and widsom explaining same-sex marriage to Jimmy Kimmel is starting to make us think they should lower the minimum age required to be president. Bravo, kiddos!
