In one of the more uplifting stories you most likely will like hear from Southern Decadence. Yes the thought of nine yelling,Â anti-gayÂ bigotsÂ getting arrested is music to our ears.
Nine street preachers using bullhorns to shoutÂ anti-gayÂ messages at participants in New Orleansâ€™s Southern Decadence festival were arrested Saturday evening.
Eight of them were arrested on suspicion of â€œaggressive solicitationâ€ under a New Orleans ordinance passed last year that prohibits â€œany 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,â€Â The Times-PicayuneÂ reports. The eight were identified as Patrick Oâ€™Connell, Rolando Igleasias, Cesar Chavez, Daniel Hoogerhuis, Danny Guevera, Larry Craft, Montes Diego, and Gary Brown.
A ninth man, Justin Craft, was arrested â€œon suspicion of battery, resisting an officer and interfering with a law enforcement investigation,â€ according to the newspaper. Craft is accused of striking an officer who tried to confiscate his bullhorn. To bad and sad and they think they are so Holy and above the law and can spread their hate.
