      Preacher on a college campus with multiple sign-holding church members for backup? Yeah, he'll let you try - he knows they can shout you down and if things get too out of hand there are police to handle that.

Not really the fundie pattern unless an individual gets irate enough to not think about it and doesn't have the experience in what can happen - which seemed to me to be the case here until the hoax was revealed.
