Self-Called “Christian Patriot”; Protestor Of Gay Festival, Arrested For Public Masturbation
Rev. Grant Storms, an anti-gay activist known for his protests of the New Orleans Southern Decadence Festival, was arrested for masturbating in a public park near a chldren’s playground. Two women reported the incident to a park employee. (Pictured is Storms from a 2003 Southern Decadence protest).
The first woman told deputies she was taking her children to the playground and parked next to the van at about noon. As she was walking around her own vehicle, she noticed the van windows were down and the occupant was “looking at the playground area that contained children playing, with his zipper down…,” the report said.
Storms, who calls himself a “Christian patriot,” claims he was urinating using a bottle rather than a restroom.
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.Click here for reuse options!
