Isaiah was right – ‘rogue’ judge, NY politicians prove it
Jeffrey Hurant, the owner and operator of a New York-based online brothel, could have gotten up to seven years under New York law – and up to five years under federal law – for running a brothel. But several homosexual New York City politicians and two members of Congress lobbied for leniency. U.S. District Judge Margo Brodie evidently listened, sending Hurant away for six months and imposing a $7,500 fine.
Jason McGuire, executive director of New Yorker’s Family Research Foundation, says the judge is certainly out of order.
“These are judges who just have gone rogue and are covering for people based on who they’re attracted to rather than keeping justice blind, as she’s supposed to be,” he says, referring to Judge Brodie.

The indictment asserts that Hurant did business with known traffickers, and that in several cases his employees posted ads of “super young escorts” with their faces cropped out.
“When it comes to prostitution, these are not consenting adults. These are people who are being coerced – oftentimes it’s people who are being victimized or trafficked,” McGuire asserts. “And now we’re sending the wrong message with this slap on the wrist; [that it’s okay] if [those being victimized] happen to be in a homosexual relationship rather than a heterosexual one.”
The family advocate says the world is now one where, as Isaiah 5:20 states, people call evil good and good evil, and are putting darkness for light and light for darkness.
“That’s the irony in the world in which we live today,” McGuire points out to OneNewsNow. “If you happen to be a cake-maker or a baker or run a wedding venue [and you take a biblical stand], somehow you’re driven out of business and you’re vilified. But if you’re a person who’s running some kind of an online brothel, you’re glorified because you’re doing something for the LGBT community.”
More than ten years ago, McGuire was warning that marriage was in trouble and homosexual activists were turning traditional morality upside down. What’s he warning about now to watch for in the coming years?
“One of the things we are watching is parental rights as it comes up against transgender rights,” he responds. “We foresee a future where there are parents who have a child who feels that they are trapped in the wrong body – [and] where those parents could lose those parental rights if they will not affirm that child in their confusion.”
That comports with earlier comments by family advocate Peter LaBarbera, who sees Hurant’s light sentence as the next step in a logical chain of events in a culture given over to a “revolutionary sin movement.”
