Who Is That Seemingly Unhinged Local Carrying The Crazy Protest Sign?

Posted By on Tue, Mar 4, 2008 at 8:30 AM


It's a match made in blog heaven: locals SFist and whatimseeing have managed to tag-team their way to answers in the second installment of a hopefully continuing series that I've lovingly named "who the hell is that seemingly unhinged local carrying the crazy protest sign?"

Back in January after SFist raised questions about the ubiquitous dude who hangs out around Market holding the big, yellow "JESUS CHRIST LOVES YOU" sign, whatimseeing hit the pavement and came back with answers.

This time it's another Market Street regular bearing a more esoteric message -- albeit, on a much cooler sign. It's the "No Unlawful Sex" guy. If you've seen him, you already know who I'm talking about. Here's some of the vital stats about The Reverend Dr. Owens Bias:

  • Age: 71

  • Length of protest: 22 years

  • Purpose of campaign: "To teach the hell-bound masses to practice fresh and clean sex. No leftovers, no sloppy-seconds. In order to get right with God, they must abstain from sex for the rest of their lives. Or God will cast his fury upon thee!! Repent, quit the whoring, and turn to Jesus!!"

    Ooookay. If you need more convincing this this is indeed the way to heaven, here's some video:

    • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
      Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
