Transcript HOUSTON VOICE /AUGUST 23, 1996 13 Gay Paper sued by American Indian Ministries Baltimore, MD—"On behalf of religious persons who oppose homosexuality," Ellis Hadey Barber of the South Carolina-based International American Indian Ministries (IAIM) has filed a lawsuit in Howard County District Court against the Baltimore Gay Paper (BGP) for slander and defamation. In a two page statement filed with the lawsuit. Barber alleges that the BGP has denied him the free exercise of religion by slandering and defaming persons who oppose homosexuality. Despite that declaration. Barber does not detail any specific instance in which the paper has defamed or slandered him. The IAIM maintains a local chapter office in Columbia, Maryland, according to Barber, who says the local group has approximately 1000 members. In his petition. Barber writes, "The act of homosexuality is still criminal in its action and violates state laws and federal laws. These actors (sic) are forbidden by partners of the opposite sex, and forbidden with same sex. The idea thai homosexuals can slander and defamed (sic) persons opposing what is criminal is slanderous and denies many constitutional rights." Among the rights Barber lists that (he BGP is denying him are: "free exercise of religion, freedom of choice, and freedom of speech." He goes on to slate that "homosexuality requires a death penalty from God for all concerned parlies ... many of ihese homosexuals are under hundreds and thousands of death penalties." "We are not executing homosexuals we are separating from them, if they choose to repent and pray, they have homosexual churches and ministries they can go to, we do not want to associate with their kinds." Barber is seeking $9,999.99 for each instance of slander. He also is demanding an "open apology and no further straight bashing by these homosexual beings." During a brief telephone conversation on July 30, Barber called (he IAIM "a scientific Christian, civil rights organization." "We will vigorously defend ourselves against this lawsuit." commented BGP Managing Editor Mike Chase. "We fully believe Mr. Barbers suit is without merit and i waste of the court's time.' A Sept. 30 trial has been set and the BGP will be represented on a pro bono basis by attorney Randy Knepper. Mr. Knepper has filed a motion asking (he court to dismiss the suit. One ground is that Mr. Barber has no standing to sue on behalf of religious people who oppose homosexuality. The second basis is the failure of Barber to state a claim. The third is the absence of any specific example of defamation. The BGP is Maryland's largest gay newspaper with a readership exceeding 35.000. Published by the Newspaper Committee of the Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Baltimore, the paper has served the state's lesbian and gay community for more than 17 years.
