Chris Sevier, an anti-gay bigot and attorney with a history of filing ludicrous lawsuits against same-sex marriage, is now suing a group of legislators on the grounds that they display rainbow flags in their offices. Rainbow flags, he argues, are a religious symbol and this is a violation of the Establishment Clause.
Rep. Susan Davis and three other House members have been sued for displaying a rainbow flag in the hallways outside of their Capitol Hill offices.
The plaintiff: Chris Sevier, an attorney who has an ongoing campaign against same-sex marriage and has also unsuccessfully sued states for the right to marry a laptop computer, to make a point about rulings on same-sex marriage.
Besides Davis of San Diego, Sevier also sued Reps. Alan Lowenthal of Long Beach, Don Beyer of Virginia and Earl Blumenauer of Oregon. All are Democrats.
Sevier’s 38-page complaint asks the federal District Court in the District of Columbia to determine that “‘homosexuality’ and other forms of self-asserted sex-based identity narratives are a ‘religion,’” and that the colorful banners are a religious symbol for the “homosexual denomination.” He is seeking to force the members of Congress to remove the flags…Besides demanding that the flags be removed from the hallways, Sevier also asked the court to overturn Supreme Court rulings that ended a prohibition against sodomy and federal policies that only recognized opposite-sex marriages, as well as Obergefell V. Hodges, the 2015 ruling that found that same-sex couples have a fundamental right to marry.
Further, he said the members who displayed the flag should be removed from office.
“The Defendants know or should know that they are advancing a threat to Democracy…to the point that they are unfit to hold office and should be removed for cause for representing an internalized danger to National Security interests,” he said.
Sevier previously filed a suit seeking the right to marry his laptop. This suit might well break Larry Klayman’s land speed record for the quickest dismissal on record.
