DARK HORSE: Best Street Character: Prophet Love

Staff Pick

When the economy sucks, gas prices blow and the Atlanta summer heat makes you sweat bullets, nothing brightens your day like a man in a purple suit telling you you’re going to hell. PROPHET LOVE, an 82-year-old former handyman, is how Prince would look if you saw him on the River Styx. Giant sign in hand, the fire-and-brimstone orator often can be found at one of metro Atlanta’s many gridlocked intersections – most frequently at North Avenue and Spring Street, near the Varsity – preaching about our imminent doom. Prophet Love says God spoke to him some years ago in a “low” voice (in English, of course) and told him to carry the message of repentance to his flock. We’ve yet to see Prophet Love successfully convert any wayward pedestrians, but we’re praying that happens someday soon. You know, like before we go to hell.
