A monk has pleaded guilty to harassment after getting into a war of words with a pair of lesbian witches.
Damon Kelly, 53, from a Catholic group calling themselves the Black Hermits, delivers leaflets campaigning against homosexuality and other things he regards as sins.
When a lesbian couple living in Clarendon Park, Leicester, received his leaflet one of them stopped Kelly further down the street and confronted him and tried to hand him back the leaflet. ...
The woman's partner joined her outside and defended the couple's sexuality and pagan beliefs. The court heard both parties were quoting scripture at other.
Mr Chapman said an "aggressive and fanatical" Kelly told the women: "You know we used to burn people like you.
"I'm doing God's work."A fortnight later Kelly delivered a letter to the two women. It described "witches, gays, lesbians and sex-changers" as being part of the "devil's madness".
As Kelly has taken a vow of poverty he cannot be fined, so the court adjourned the case for three weeks to assess whether Kelly is fit for unpaid work.
I shall just add that should you want to look for lesbian witches in Leicester, then Clarendon Park is the place to start.
