Homo Sex Hating “Official Street Preacher” Arrested at Southern Decadence in NOLA – VIDEO

This year as thousands of revelers descended on Southern Decadence the annual six-day event held in New Orleans, Louisiana held by the lesbian and gay community so did the anti-gay hate group the “Official Street Preachers”  who believe that 39 books of the Old Testament and the 27 books of the New Testament were directed and inspired by God. It contains no errors, and is the final and only authority in all matters of faith and doctrine. That it authoritatively speaks to questions of
creation, chronology, existence, law, history and life styles.

In other words they are fucking insane.

The group came to New Orleans to disrupt Southern Decadence carrying Westboro Baptist inspired signs harassing party goers on Royal St. who was  waiting for the Decadence parade.

Right before the parade kicked off a New Orleans state trooper arrested one of the “godly” men for harassing and physically assaulting a female parade bystander.

Exact details of the arrest were unavailable at the time of this posting,

Nine Anti-Gay Preachers Arrested at New Orleans Southern Decadence – VIDEO

The Times Picayune is reporting that nine men have been arrested for anti-gay street preaching against celebrants at  New Orleans’ annual Southern Decadence this weekend and one other “preacher” was arrested for attempting to assault an officer.

Patrick O’Connell, 45, Rolando Igleasias, 31,  Cesar Chavez, 22, Daniel Hoogerhuis, 26, Danny Guevera, 20, Larry Craft, 52,  Montes Diego, 32 and Gary Brown, 33 were arrested on suspicion of aggressive  solicitation, a city law passed last October.

The ordinance prohibits “any person or group of  persons to loiter or congregate on Bourbon Street for the purpose of  disseminating any social, political or religious message between the hours of  sunset and sunrise.”

Another man was arrested for attempting to assault an officer.

New Orleans police spokesman Frank Robertson said  the men were previously warned not to use bullhorns, but did not comply. Casey  Kolosky, a bouncer at Tropical Isle, said the preachers were making slurs  against gays and also mentioned Hurricane Katrina victims

Note to the guy in orange carrying the sign: Your outfit is a sin.

“Pastor” Blames Hurricane Isaac On New Orleans Gay Festival

Hurricane Issac made landfall off the Gulf of Mexico several days ago, yet some are blaming a local New Orleans fesitval on the storm. Each year, New Orleans has a fesitivity called Southern Decadence which to locals is commonly called “Gay Mardi Gras”. The nearly week long festivity is now being blamed as the reason the strom made landfall by “religious leaders”.

“Pastor ” Jon McTernan.wrote in his blog that there are asinine  comparisons between  Hurricane Isaac and Hurricane Katrina happening exactly seven years apart because it took God seven days to create everything. Here’s more of his absurd proclamation:

The hurricane is scheduled to hit the New Orleans area on Wednesday, August 29 which is the beginning of an annual homosexual event in New Orleans called “Southern Decadence.” 

The church, city and nation have not repented and the homosexual agenda is far worse than it was in 2005. New Orleans is still hosting Southern Decadence with open homosexuality manifesting in the streets of the city. It could be that God is putting an end to this city and its wickedness. The timing of Hurricane Isaac with Southern Decadence is a sign that God’s patience with America’s sin is coming to an end.”

This coincides with the Disturbed and hypocritical rantings of Rush Limbaugh, who made similar jests saying that President Obama somehow controlled the weather:

“What could be better for the Democrats than the Republicans to cancel a day of this?..I’m alleging no conspiracy. I’m just telling you, folks, when you put this all together in this timeline, I’m telling you, it’s unbelievable!”

Despite the “pastor’s” religious claims, the Southern Decadence festivity is still on schedule going from August 29 to September 3. Is this how the religious right explain all acts of nature because of us gays? Ridiculous.

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.
