EXCERPT FROM ABSOLUTE INTOLERANCE
FOLLOWING A POSTPONEMENT OF A COURT TO RENDER A DECISION ON A CASE INVOLVING THE LEGALITY OF GAY MARRIAGE, ATTORNEY BRENT MARKS ATTEMPTS TO LEAVE THE COURT BUILDING BUT, ON THE WAY OUT, ENCOUNTERS AN EAGER- AND LOUD- GROUP OF REPORTERS….
The judge went on to call her next case, and Brent packed up his briefcase and joined his clients as they left the courtroom, dejected. Brent waved off questions being shouted by a crowd of reporters who had congregated in the corridor outside the courtroom. Losers make lousy press conferences. Penner, however, eagerly jumped into the fray like he was falling off the stage into a mosh pit. As Brent and his clients trudged away, before he could even have the chance to console them, Joshua Banks, a bible-thumping, homophobic, religious fanatic, blocked their path. Brent had had run-ins with Banks several times, to the point where he had been forced to obtain a restraining order against him because of death threats. But he was mainly a zealot and a windbag who was always preaching
“Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure!” Banks proclaimed, lifting his finger in front of them as if he was giving a sermon.
“Step aside, Mr. Banks. Do I have to get another restraining order against you?”
“Men committed acts with other men, and received in themselves due penalty for their perversion!”
“Who is this guy?”
“He’s just a nut job, James. I’ve dealt with him before.”
Banks stepped out of the way and the three proceeded down the escalator to the lobby of the courthouse.
“He’s a religious fanatic. Part of the group opposing gay marriage.”
As they descended, they could hear the echoes of Banks yelling verses from the Bible.
“These dreamers pollute their own bodies, reject authority and slander celestial beings!” “He’s really harmless. Just ignore him.”
“Sounds like he’s got a screw loose,” said Jim.
Brent nodded. “More than one screw, I think.”
The bellowing began to fade from their ears as they descended.
“Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders, nor thieves, nor the greedy or drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God!”
“I guess it’s official, Jim. We’re both going to hell.”
“At least we’ll be there together.”
