The North Carolina Values Coalition — which is listed as a “hate group” by GLAAD and the Southern Poverty Law Center (Mission Statement: “It takes one to know one.”) — has successfully forced the president of the Charlotte North Carolina LGBT Chamber of Commerce to resign.
Sevearance-Turner was arrested in 1998, when he was 20, and charged in Cherokee County, S.C., with a “lewd act, committing or attempting a lewd act upon a child under 16.”
A 2000 story in the Spartanburg Herald-Journal said Sevearance-Turner had been a youth minister at a church in Gaffney. A jury there found him guilty of fondling a 15-year-old teenage church member while the boy slept.
Before he stepped down as chamber president, Sevearance-Turner said the N.C. Values Coalition’s criticism “did not surprise him.”He said his conviction had not stopped him from achieving success, such as being chamber president.
Of course it didn’t. An this is, like, totally not fair because straight people never get marked for life when convicted of sex offenses with minors.
So, he’s out of a job, but on the plus side, the “community” still supports him and Hillary’s going to need a Safe School Czar at some point.
