Video – “Christian” Facist Invade Southern Decadence Sans Leader Who Was Busted For Jerking Off In Metairie Park

Southern Decadence is a week-long event held in New Orleans, Louisiana and its environs by the gay and lesbian community during Labor Day Weekend, climaxing with a parade through the French Quarter on the Sunday before Labor Day, sort of like a “gay mardi gras”

But the Rev. Grant Storms, a Christian fundamentalist known to lead these protests with a group called “The Official Street Preachers” at Southern Decadence couldn’t wait for the “official climax” of SD and was not in attendance this year but many of his followers carried on without him. Because you see the pious “Rev” Storms was arrested last February on a charges of  publically masturbating in the driver’s seat of his van, which was parked near the carousel and playground in Metairie park back in February.  Storms will  face fines up to $2500 and be imprisoned for up to three years.
