Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Earlier today outside of Houstoned World Headquarters there was one of the nicest proselytizers we’ve ever met (not to mention the first we’ve seen on horseback).

His name was Couy Griffin, and he’s riding around the country, praising Jesus. (No, not that Jesus. This one.)

Griffin said he started out in San Fran and made it all the way to Utah on horseback, but since then he’s been trucking his animals from city to city and passing out copies of the Gospel of John.

He said riding around downtown on horseback is an inoffensive way to get people’s attention, and we have to agree.

Hell, here we are writing about him, and he doesn’t even have a machine gun. – Keith Plocek

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
