GLAAD, A&E and President Obama have all been named in a suit brought by Chris Sevier of Tennessee, claiming they used tactics similar to that if the Nazi SS.
As the drama surrounding fauxbilly Phil Robertson and his yuppie-turned-hilljack family begins to wind down, Sevier, a self-professed member of Sevier’s church, contends his suit is a preventative measure to keep his religious rights from being violated like Robertson’s were.
Sevier, whose license to practice law in the state of Tennessee is suspended due to disability, attempts to make a case of religious persecution under the Obama administration, citing its “gay agenda.” The poorly worded, badly punctuated, and incorrectly spelled complaint reads:
[box type=”shadow”]Like Mr. Roberson, I have a continuing economic expectation with the Defendants, and I now because of their reckless decision without due process, I myself directly have the reasonable apprehension of being discriminated against under the “chilling effect doctrine.” This fear of inevitable discrimination for being a Christian, who ardently opposes something as despicable as homosexual conduct gives rise to a claim under 28 U.S.C. 2201 against the Defendants, who are obviously furthering the “pro-gay” agenda through their “symbolic” and “joint” relationship with the Obama administration, which has reduced itself to the poster child of poor leadership. It was not by accident that President Obama felt “compelled” to inject himself in this controversy after the fact to try to reverse the damage caused by his backfiring social agenda that blatantly affronts the will of God.[/box]
Sevier includes Obama in the suit because he was “compelled to inject himself” into the Robertson controversy. He argues that Obama was a “state actor” in the reality-show star’s religious dogma-drama, and as such, his actions would be ruled unconstitutional.
The problem is that Sevier based his “evidence” of said injection on a satire piece which never happened in day-to-day life. The work of fictional comedy states “President Barack Obama today urged the Arts & Entertainment network to reinstate Robertson immediately, and to apologize for its “hypocrisy. ‘There are no bigger fans of Duck Dynasty than Michele and me,’ Obama said. ‘And while I have my disagreements with Mr. Robertson’s views on homosexuality, as expressed in GQ magazine, I’ll defend with my last breath Robertson’s right to express those views.’ ”
This is not the first time Sevier has brought about such entertaining lawsuits. In July of 2013 Sevier sued Apple, Inc. for the damage done to brick-and-mortar mom and pop porn shops, the damage done to his own marriage due to easy access via his iPhone to unregulated porn, and on behalf of his own wife who cannot compete with the myriad wiles of thousands of scantily-clad internet nymphs.
