Anti-Gay Pastor Grant Storms Convicted On Obscenity Charges

Want some piping hot Schadenfreude for breakfast? Well here it is...

Anti-gay activist and self-confessed hypocrite Grant Storms, made famous for his homophobic crusades during New Orleans' annual Southern Decadence event, has been convicted of obscenity after being caught masturbating in a public park.

From NOLA.com:

[Judge Ross LaDart] promptly found Storms guilty of the single count of obscenity. He sentenced Storms to three years of probation, citing no evidence of a criminal history.

LaDart also ordered Storms to be evaluated, apparently psychologically. The judge noted that in Storms' confession, he admitted that Feb. 25, 2011, the day he was arrested, was the third time that week that he masturbated in Lafreniere Park.

"Lafreniere Park is a public place," LaDart said in announcing the verdict. "Lafreniere Park is a place that was chosen by this defendant to engage in a history of masturbation."

Storms declined to testify. His attorneys, Brett Emmanuel and Donald Cashio, did not overtly deny their client masturbated in the park but argued he never exposed his penis. The exposure was a necessary element of the obscenity charge.

In his confession, Storms told Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office Sgt. Kevin Balser he had taken a break from his grass cutting business to sip a beer in the park, where he said he became "horny." He said he put his hands into his underwear, but he never exposed himself.

Storms said previously he was looking for a "thrill' by taking care of his business in public.

  4. His grass cutting business ? Wha Wha What ?!

    And the judge gives him 3 years probation, even though he ADMITTED he did it THREE TIMES ?

    I guess we know who else can be found jerking off in the park...

  5. Uh, it doesn't say what kind of, um, grass he was cutting. Maybe that had something to do with it?

    That damned Satan!

  6. I saw this "Reverend" and some of his followers protesting at Southern Decadence years ago. My first thought was "they all look gay to me."

  7. Is this a known park where gay men cruise?

  8. I do not suppose the pastor will be preaching on this text on Sunday:

    "Woe to those who devise iniquity,
    And work out evil on their beds!
    At morning light they practice it,
    Because it is in the power of their hand."
    Micah 2:1

  9. To borrow from "Frothy Mix" Santorum... You can call whacking off in public "getting horny". But the truth of the matter is, it's still whacking off in public.

  10. Ha ha ha ha. *snorts*. Ha ha ha. *guffaws*.

  11. Three years probation seems a bit extreme. A first offense would probably be a fine of $500-$1000 in most cases. That said, his obsession with sex is telling.

  12. So he was drinking alcohol in the park, too?

  15. @JackM: If the term "white trash" is acceptable, is the term "black trash" equally acceptable?

  16. He was born with a gay porn name.

    As a resident of New Orleans I can say that this city is one of the most gay-friendly (or at least gay-blase) cities in the South, if not the country. Jefferson Parish on the other hand is a hateful hellhole that people here don't really go to unless they have to (i.e. to fly somewhere, go to Target, or buy a car.)

  17. Sometimes, you want the designer look but you just can not afford such a designer price tag.

  18. "ANDREW,"

    AT LEAST, "white trash" AND "black trash" LIKE "RAW" SEX, THE WAY HOMOSEXUALS ARE SUPPOSED TO; YOU "PREPPY" AND "FRIGID" TYPES PLACE ALL HOPE IN A PIECE OF LATEX. HOW SAD! GET A PSYCHIATRIST!
