Southern Decadence protest leader booked with masturbating at Metai...

The Rev. Grant Storms, the Christian fundamentalist known for his bullhorn protests of theSouthern Decadence festival in the French Quarter, was arrested on a charge of masturbating at a Metairie park Friday afternoon.

Storms, 53, of 2304 Green Acres Road in Metairie, was taken into custody at Lafreniere Park after two women reported seeing him masturbating in the driver's seat of his van, which was parked near the carousel and playground, a Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office report said.


....

A self-styled "Christian patriot," Storms led a small West Bank congregation called The Reformer Church and for 10 years hosted "The Reformer Radio Show" on WSHO. Storms has railed against the Roman Catholic church, calling it "satanic" and "demonic."

He is especially known for arming followers with bullhorns, Bibles and picket signs to protest Southern Decadence, the three-day gay festival held in the French Quarter during Labor Day weekend. Storms grabbed national attention in 2003 with his failed attempts to shut down what Southern Decadence organizer Chuck Robinson called a peaceful festival that celebrates gay and alternative lifestyles.

A number of years ago, a sociologist did a study of convicts in Georgia prisons who had been convicted of anti-gay hate crimes. Seventy percent showed a positive response to gay porn when examined using a plethismograph (measures sexual arousal).

Maybe we should begin checking fundamentalist preachers, too, and out them if they test positive.

George, thank you for posting this story.

 

I think we all love it when fundamentalist hypocrites are shown to be who they are.  It's one more little bit of sunshine revealing to the world that the biggest condemners are sometimes that way because they are most aftaid of their own inclinations.
