“You have absolutely no right sir. Get off this train!’ DeLaria shouted. ‘Other people believe other things and everybody has the right to believe in other things on this planet and in this world,” Lea told the Bible preacher, according to TMZ.
The man then started speaking about a message from Jesus before she cut him off.
“Jesus never sent for you to do this never, not anywhere in the Bible. Show me anywhere in the Bible where Jesus says it is OK for you to do this. Don’t come at me because I went to f***ing Catholic school for 12 years and I know every lie,” she said.
