But another wildly popular New Orleans celebration, the annual Southern Decadence festival, or "gay Mardi Gras," is making some people wonder whether the city's "anything goes" attitude should just plain go away.

The Rev. Grant Storms, who calls himself a fundamentalist Christian patriot on a mission from God, is at the forefront of this effort.

Storms says he became interested in Southern Decadence in 2001, when a fellow preacher described lewd sexual acts he'd seen at the festival.

The following year, Storms went to the festival with a video camera, and taped men exposing themselves, having oral sex in public, and barrooms showing homosexual pornography visible from the streets with the doors open.

Storms took his tape to the police, the media and to lawmakers, including state Rep. Danny Martiny, a Republican, who reacted by helping pass a bill that toughens the penalty for public sex.

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.




And, of course:

Storms explained that he's battling sex addiction and is now estranged from his wife and four children because of it. In addition to apologizing to his friends and family for his behavior, Storms requested the forgiveness of the gay men and women he's spent years tormenting. "I was very proudful, arrogant," he said. "I have been vicious at times in my condemnation of others."
