#2584: Don Boyd

A self-described “musician and psalmist”, Don Boyd is primarily an absolutely insane, South Carolina-based anti-gay activist. In 2014, Boyd, who also claims to have been “anointed and assigned as a watchman for the souls,” filed a federal motion to intervene in a South Carolina same-sex marriage case on the grounds that same-sex marriage would interrupt his ability to worship, lamenting that the state was inadequately defending his interests. According to the filing, “people errantly identifying and calling themselves lesbian and gay WOULD PURSUE DISMISSAL of what is in essence and in truth a RELIGIOUS matter couched of late as a secular deprivation of constitutional rights by the Gay Agenda [… insert lots of pseudo-Biblical ranting here …]”; gay people “have now of late by hellish Plot turned to the World for circumvention of authority by the Church”, and they are aided and abetted by journalists and others who are also aligned “with the Black Agenda”, which also having tasted blood and agreed to cry ‘racism’ in all else remaining, themselves still wicked Egyptians… And so on. You may read extended excerpts here. Grammar and spelling are not his strong suits, but he tends to get the general character of his thinking across.


In any case, “Any Court decision ratifying – thus proliferating – gay marriages would deprive Don Boyd of a personal life and other equal liberties and protections guaranteed by Amendment Fourteen of the Constitution of the United States, and if same-sex couples were allowed to marry, Boyd would be forced to “assume a life of a protester and wedding crasher.” He’s even got “exhibits”, including photocopied pages from the Bible and wedding announcements by random straight couples from local newspapers with the word married circled. The motion failed.


Diagnosis: Probably fun at parties for a while, but you’d quickly tire of him. Hopefully he gets the love and attention he needs.


  1. This one made me laugh! It's refreshing that not all your entries are about dangerous people.

  2. I wonder what his male boyfriends think about him...
