Teenager Clubs Homophobic Preacher with Baseball Bat
Ay batta, batta! Swing, batta batta!
Dean Saxton, a street preacher, was shouting all kinds of homophobic stuff outside of Apollo High School in Glendale, Arizona. When he began yelling “The Bible says it’s not okay to be gay ... You need to stop doing naught, nasty things, Apollo High School. You need to stop looking up naughty, nasty things on the Internet ...” he was confronted by students and teachers of Apollo to go away, but he refused. After some back and forth with various bystanders, Saxton was swiftly hit with a baseball bat.
According to news source ABC15, Saxton often stands outside local schools yelling like this and holding a sign reading: you deserve to be raped. 19-year-old Tabitha Brubaker is facing felony charges for assault, and marijuana possession following the incident. SMDH.
Update as of Tuesday, May 31 at 8 PM: There is a fundraiser circulating for Tabitha's defense fund.
