3 Weeks in Jail for Man Who Disrupted Gay Marriage Arguments

Left-wing ABC News is reporting:

A protester who disrupted historic arguments over gay marriage at the U.S. Supreme Court was sentenced Thursday to 21 days in jail.

Rives Miller Grogan, 50, of Mansfield, Texas, had previously pleaded guilty to illegally demonstrating inside the court. Lawyers were about 30 minutes into oral arguments April 28 when, during a break in speakers, Grogan yelled that the Bible says gay marriage supporters "could burn in hell for eternity" and that "homosexuality is an abomination to god." He was removed from the courtroom and arrested.

The justices announced their decision in the case in June, ruling 5-4 that same-sex couples have a right to marry nationwide.

On Thursday, Grogan told Judge Randolph D. Moss during a hearing that his Christian faith compelled him to speak out in the courtroom as a "warning" to the justices.
