Shocking Discovery - Anti-Gay Pastor Arrested for Masturbating At Children's Playground
Grant Storms Arrested: Anti-Gay Christian Pastor Charged With Public Masturbation
New Orleans, LA
Rev. Grant Storms, a well known anti-gay, Christian pastor from Louisiana, was arrested last week for masturbating at a public park, in the vicinity of a carousel and playground where children were present.
According to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, one woman saw Storms parked in his van "looking at the playground area that contained children playing, with his zipper down...," the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office report read. After judging that Storms was masturbating, the woman and another mother who witnessed the event both alerted deputies.
When apprehended by police, Storms claimed he had been urinating into a bottle. He was booked for obscenity -- charges that he denied -- and then released due to overcrowding in the jail.
At a bizarre press conference on Tuesday Storms blamed "pornography" for the incident. It wasn't his fault. Pornography made him do it.
"Pornography is destructive and it can ruin a person's life, and it ruined my life," Storms said at the press conference, admitting that he had his hands in his pants, but insisting that he wasn't masturbating. "Do I have problems? Yes. Did I do something wrong? Yes."
Despite his "apology," which he also extended to the gay community, of which he has been a virulent critic and prominent opponent, Storms also denied claims that he had been "looking at the children" in the area.
All the time he was seated in his van with both his hands inside his pants he never looked at any of those children, according to Reverend Storms.
Reverend Storms has been a very vocal critic of the gay community and tried to get the gay pride festival, Southern Decadence, shut down after he videotaped men participating in sex acts and masturbating in the street. "It's pretty clear now what he used those videotapes for," according to another, pedophile minister in Baton Rouge.
