Rev. Storm Schadenfreude

I know I shouldn’t take pleasure in this, but after years of having Rev. Storm and his church harass me and my friends during Mardi Gras and Southern Decadence (shouting at us, holding signs telling us we’re going to hell, video taping inside bars, etc.) this article from the Times Picayune fills me with pure sweet joy.

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, 53, of 2304 Green Acres Road in Metairie, 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, a Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office report said.

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. The woman noted that he was masturbating and quickly ushered her children out of her car.
