Wisc. Supremes Dismiss Anti-Gay Pastor’s Defamation Suit

horsesass2.jpg
Being unnecessarily litigiousness can cost you. Just ask Reverend Grant Storms.

The anti-gay preacher man filed a defamation lawsuit against gay rights group Action Wisconsin after they highlighted his homophobic sermons, which they claim advocated offing gays.

A court dismissed Storms’ suit back in 2005, but the tenacious pastor wouldn’t quit and took his case all the way to the state’s Supreme Court. The court, however, wasn’t having it and upheld the 2005 ruling.

Storms, who had preached about shooting gays, must now pay about $87,000 for what the court described as a “frivolous” lawsuit.

      Need to have the tail up, Foof, bangs cover up his finer points.
      I t seems to me that there should be criminal laws against attempting to induce violence, publicly.

      That madman, Fred Phelps of the Westboro Baptist Church advocates violence against homosexuals all the time. In fact, he advocates the criminalization of homosexuality and making it an offense punishable by death.

      Hm…wonder of that idiot ruling Gambia could use a man like this in his cabinet?
