Heavy Metal Preacher Bradlee Dean Reportedly Ordered To Pay Rachel Maddow's Legal Fees

Last year we reported on anti-gay "heavy metal preacher" Bradlee Dean suing political commentator Rachel Maddow for defamation after she quoted Dean's views on homosexuality and Islamic Sharia law taken from a radio show.

Huffingtonpost.com is now reporting that the suit is being dropped and Bradlee Dean has been ordered to pay Maddow's legal fees. Dean's ministry website and his original statement about the lawsuit appear to currently be offline.

The original spot on Maddow's show prompting the lawsuit can be viewed below. Dean alleged the quote was taken out of context and that Maddow reported on it to purposefully harm the campaign of former Republican Presidential contender Michelle Bachmann, who eventually lost out to presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney. The quote in question from Dean was:

"Muslims are calling for the execution of homosexuals in America. They themselves are upholding the laws that are even in the Bible, the Judeo-Christian God, but they seem to be more moral than the American Christians do. Because these people are livid about enforcing their laws. They know homosexuality is an abomination. If America won't enforce the laws, God will raise up a foreign enemy to do just that."
