SURPRISE. Convicted Sex Offender Was Behind Charlotte, NC’s Boys-In-the-Girls Bathroom Law
If you need to be convinced of the real purpose this law was pushed, you need look no further than the person who was instrumental in having it passed.
The former president of Charlotte’s LGBT Chamber of Commerce has resigned after he came under fire from a conservative group, which noted that he is on a sex offender list and questioned his role in supporting the city’s expanded nondiscrimination ordinance.
Chad Sevearance-Turner had been the president of the chamber, which supported the newly expanded ordinance that gives legal protection for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals.
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.
Last Wednesday, the governor of North Carolina signed a bill that makes it illegal for Charlotte and other cities to pass these pedophile-friendly laws. But naturally, the sexual deviant lobby has filed a lawsuit apparently seeking a Constitutional right to be a pervert.
