"Laugh at me, laugh with me, it is all fine by me": Bishop Michael Curry on the giggles during his epic sermon at the Royal Wedding
Bishop Curry reveals what he really felt about the royals and celebrities who giggled while he gave his speech.
Bishop Michael Curry took everyone by surprise as he presented his speech. His energy was incomparable to any ever seen at the royal wedding and for that reason, he became the center of attention. While some of the faces that we saw expressed confusion, others could stop themselves from giggling.
Prince William was caught smirking while the newlyweds shared a smile. Meanwhile, David Beckham was also spotted grinning. Bishop Curry began by saying, "We're going to sit down, we gotta get Y'all married!"
While most of them tried their best to control their laughter, Bishop Carry did not seem to mind their response. "They were listening in their own way. Emotions should be expanded," he told The Sun.
He was open to the emotions people had to express. "Laugh at me, laugh with me, it is all fine by me. Any way I can steer the message about the love of God, I am glad to do that," he said. To make his speech more relatable, he also quoted Martin Luther King, saying, "We must discover the power of love, the redemptive power of love."
"And when we do that, we will be able to make of this old world a new world. Love is the only way," he continued. "There's power in love. Don't underestimate it. Don't even over-sentimentalize. There is power, power in love." People fell in love with how he chose to address the gathering.
Sky News journalist Mark Austin said, "Lovely moment as the preacher takes the Royals to the edge of their comfort zone."
While BBC presenter Jeremy Vine said, "The preacher is doing 50 in a 30 zone and it's brilliant."
The palace announced that Michael Bruce Curry, the 27th Presiding Bishop and Primate of The Episcopal Church, would be giving the address at the royal wedding on May 12.
Taking some of the references from his own life and using words to describe the power of love, he sure did manage to hold everyone's attention. At the same time, his enthusiasm set a different tone at the wedding which made them preach along with him easily.
