    LA - Anti-Gay Christian Minister Charged w/Masturbating Near Playground

    Southern Decadence protest leader booked with masturbating at Metairie park

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

    (Storms) 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...
    The first woman was a mom taking her kids to the playground. She noticed a man sitting in a van with the windows down "looking at the playground area that contained children playing, with his zipper down..." She then told a second woman who took a look and agreed that the man was masturbating.

    Storms told deputies he was having lunch at the park when he decided to urinate using a bottle instead of the restroom, the report said..."

    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.

    The Southern Decadence festival is a good, fun time for the participants, many of whom are well-heeled visitors from around the world, and brings a boost to the local economy at the end of the long, hot summer when tourism takes a nosedive. For years, this guy and his Reformer Church stormtroopers have raised a ruckus with their bullhorns and offensive picket signs. I have zero tolerance for hypocrisy and pedophilia, and this is a prime example of both.

    Hi bessie--Just alert on it and the mods will fix it. I'd also ask that it be moved to Spotlight on Children.

    Well, it looks like Rev. Storms has a buddy up in the Sacramento area. Pastor Tom Daniels of the First Baptist Church of Rio Linda, CA was charged recently with child molestation. At first his church came out in defense of him but it looks as if there's a good deal of evidence. Seems that Pastor Daniels is also quite a vocal opponent of equal rights and especially harsh on gay marriage. You know, some comments about hell and all for those who sin. Yep. We have a thread but I didn't post the articles about his stance on gay rights. I'll rectify that:

    And then there's always Bishop Eddie Long who thinks the death penalty for gay people might be the way to go, while he's seducing and harassing 16 and 17 year old boys he holds authority over.

    Hypocrisy is an ugly beast, isn't it?

    Just yuck. I have a strong feeling that two adult women know the difference between urination and masturbation. And near the carousel. Jesus would NOT be pleased.

    Ain't this always the way with these right winged nutters who scream fire and brimstone?

    Some of the gay forums have posted this and the comments are classic yet not over the top.

    Tsk, tsk, tsk, Reverend Storm. Even peeing in a bottle is wrong when kids are around. Heck even when other adults are around. Makes me wonder how much peep was found at the scene.

    Good for those women. Admittedly I've observed such behavior going waaaaaay back because I attended an all girls High School. These creepers would do that on a daily basis. As young girls we used to shout at them. However, once I became a parent and would see it that was a different story. These men exhibiting such behavior are dangerous.

    This guy was already dangerous. Bullhorn and all. Now what's going to happen to his soul? Are the heavens going to open up and send locusts down upon him because he masturbated publicly with children nearby?

    O/T Bessie I am well heeled. I so want to go to this festival. I've never heard of it. No doubt it has to be fun and exciting. Hoping the attending folks get a bullhorn of their own and blast the Reverend.

    Thankfully no children were hurt and the women called the cops.

    No, Believe. No connection that I know of. I just thought it was intriguing how many vocal opponents of gay rights have been arrested (or sued) lately concerning crimes against children.

    Pastor Daniels sexually molested special needs little girls in his care. Looks like Rev. Storms was just "thinking about it". Sorry I didn't make that clear.

    It's high time for the locusts at certain houses, IMO.

    So, he claims the ladies had it all wrong. No, no, he wasn't masturbating, he was just peeing in a bottle. He's no pedophile.

    Read the four-page arrest report.

    Storms said he tends the lawns of several customers near the park and stopped there to relax...

    "In the lawn care business, you carry a pee bottle and I did urinate in the pee bottle and my pants were open and I put my hands in my pants," he said.
    Later, however, he admits that he's a porn addict.
    To his credit (maybe), he did apologize for his past behavior.

    "When I look back, there's a lot of things I would have done differently. I was so proudful(sic). I was very arrogant. I was very mean-spirited at times and I apologize," he said, adding later, "I'll fess up to my shortcomings, and whatever they say against me, they can say it. They have every right now to say it."

    He also asked for forgiveness from his wife and four children, admitting that he has a problem with sexually explicit material. Storms said he has surrounded himself with pastors who are helping him.

    Sometimes I wonder how the good clergy have any time left over to pastor to their congregations as they're so busy trying to help out the sick pastors and manage damage control.

    Yes, this tidies up everything.
