Rev. Grant Storms Called ‘Sex In The Middle Of The Street’ Immoral. He Was Just Cuffed For Park Jerking

Smooth move, Rev. Grant Storms. The Louisiana pastor who has railed against the gays and your disgusting Southern Decadence festival just earned himself a rap sheet — for masturbating in a public park in the New Orleans suburb of Metairie. While allegedly watching little kids.

The Friday arrest came after two witnesses reported to police they saw Storms touching himself “while watching children on the playground at Lafreniere Park.”

And what awesome excuse did he have for police when they showed up? That he was having lunch at the park and had to relieve himself, so he used a bottle. The women who saw him insist he was doing something much more obscene.

Yes, this is the same guy who says Southern Decadence is “nasty” and “depraved” and celebrates “perversion” … which is part of the fun. And most ironically, back in 2003 he argued “having oral sex in the middle of the street or masturbating is illegal and immoral.” How about in an open field?

Maybe Storms will learn a little something about what the law actually says: He’s been booked on obscenity charges. He was released yesterday because of overcrowding in the jails. If convicted he faces a fine of $1,000-$2,500 and and/or a prison sentence of six months to three years.

    Is anybody surprised? I love when these spooky, depraved fuckers get caught in their own web of hupocricy. They always seem to oppose something they eventually get caught involved with. I am a proud gay man, but in no way am I a pervert. This guy and those like him (Huckabee? Barbour?) are just sad pathetic creatures.

    There needs to be a billboard posted in his home town for public to see what happens to hypocrites.

    I’m so tired of these hypocritical religious freak.

    Somethings wrong with this story. The claims are (1) “The Friday arrest came after two witnesses reported to police they saw Storms touching himself in the bathroom ‘while watching children on the playground at Lafreniere Park,'” and (2) “The women who saw him insist he was doing something much more obscene [than peeing into a bottle]”.

    If he was in a bathroom, why were the women watching (and why weren’t they arrested), and why would he have to pee into a bottle when bathrooms have toilettes and/or urinals?

    The answer of course is that QUEERTY got the story wrong – according to the article QUEERTY linked to, “Storms told the attending officer he wasn’t masturbating, but had simply opted to urinate in a bottle in his van rather than find a park restroom.” Storms’ best chance for a defense: a high PSA reading and/or medical evidence of a greatly enlarged prostate plus a testosterone level so low that you’d wonder how he could get it up at all.

    If you can’t beat em, join em?

    I think he just mixed up the order a bit.

    If you can’t beat ’em… join ’em?

    oops double… now triple post… it timed out on me y’all, very sorry

    I am SHOCKED!

    OK, not really.

    I’ve come to expect it from folks like this, from street corner screamers like Storms to the more polished gay haters from the various Religious Right “family” orgs. George Rekers, anyone? If you could look inside the minds of those clean, upstanding figures like Tony Perkins and Peter Labarbera it would probably send the attendees of Southern Decadence and the Dore Alley Street Fair screaming in horror.

    As always, the biggest homophobes are the gayest of them all. If we, the fine commenters of Queerty, were to make it our collective personal mission to out every active homophobe, I bet it could be done by the end of the year….at at least the major ones.

  • Mack Robertson

    Why,why, why is this not surprising? Has anyone kept a list of right wing Christian conservatives who are hypocrites and have been caught in the act of doing exactly the ‘deviant’ behavior/s they have preached against? I am sure the list is too lone.

  • scott ny'er

    that was a good excuse he made up. quick thinker.

    i love hearing hypocrites get caught red-handed. (see what i did there :) )

  • Jeffree

    The guy was wànking in his van in the parking lot, as B said & reported elsewhere. This slimebucket deserves to have the full lawbook tossed at him.

    The scary thing is that his parishioners will still prolly stand up for him, like what happened when Pastor Eddy Long got accused of inapprop. contact w/ young men in his congregation.

    As Shannon1981 said wisely, we really could get more of these hypocrites cornered & exposed, They want to push their Christianist moral agenda on to everyone else, but can’t obey their own dang rulebook !

  • Cam

    Gee, another anti-gay pastor who turns out to be a sick perv.

    Can the narrative on the news shows now just automatically assume that any anti-gay pastor is either a closet case, or trying to hide their own perversions by attacking gays?

  • Bonnie

    @B: I don’t see where “in the bathroom” is written in the article…a search on google didn’t find anything like that either…is it possible you misread the article?

  • Jeffree

    @Bonnie: The article must have been changed since B commented, because I remember the mention of the “bathroom” as well. Since the reports were clear he was in his van when spotted, the writer/editor may have @corrected it.

  • B

    Re 14 and 15: Jeffree is right – it was in the original article but QUEERTY corrected it after my comment (No. 4) appeared. In No. 4, I had QUEERTY’s incorrect statements in quotes. They were definitely in the original: I’m too lazy to type all that in when I could simply scroll up and cut and paste it.
