Christian sues gay man who broke his signed Babe Ruth bat during religious freedom attack.
BIRMINGHAM, AL. An old law on the books allows attackers of religious freedom to be sued for the damage to the property they were beaten with.
Nigel Danberry, 34, a software engineer from Essex, UK, is being sued for $25,000 after his head splintered a prized Babe Ruth Baseball bat during a religious freedom beating.
According to police, Gus Travis Guster, 40, was exercising his religious freedoms by attacking the flamboyantly gay activist Nigel Danberry for driving a Prius.
Mr. Guster was escorted by Birmingham Police to the back of his car and questioned over a few cold ones and some barbecue. Mr. Guster yelled, "There is nothing more anti-Jesus than a f**king f****t driving a Prius." At which point he told Police that he was feeling 'prostituted' [sic] and grabbed the bat from his car and beat Mr. Danberry and destroyed his car and beat him over the head.
Mr. Danberry was then arrested for violating the Religious Freedom Act.
When asked what kind of activism Mr. Danberry was doing, he responded, " Just look at him!" Then he slurred some anti-LGBT rhetoric.
"I don't know what this is about. I am not homosexual, I'm English," said Mr. Danberry. "And it's a rental car. Now get me to a hospital, please."
When Mr. Danberry said he wanted to press charges for the damages and a hate crime, the Police officer said, "You don't understand that law, c***sucker, it was you that incited this gentleman to attack you with his prized, expensive baseball bat."
Guster then looked at his now ruined baseball bat and started to cry. 'You might as well be pissing on Jesus' grave."
George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935.
