Outlaws Alarm Preacher

The war on Outlaws clubhouses continues – against all reason; this time because a good way to get your name in the paper is to present yourself as a crusader in the increasingly ridiculous war on  bikers.

In Illinois, a crackpot Methodist minister named Leona Tichenor, who has been the pastor of the Ingalls Park United Methodist Church on East Washington Street for 34 months, wants the city of Joliet to take the American Outlaws Association’s Joliet chapter clubhouse – and the Outlaws have had a clubhouse on East Washington Street for at least 20 years – by eminent domain.

Tichenor got her name in the Chicago Tribune last week. She told a guy named Gregory Tejeda that “the motorcycle club scares parents away from bringing their young children” to an adjacent park. “It’s not that there’s a record of (the Outlaws) engaging in bad behavior,” Tichenor told the Tribune. “It’s more that it’s an intimidating presence that people have to walk past when they enter the park.”

According to Glen Marcum, a spokesman for the Joliet Park District, the clubhouse has been in its present location, next to Barr Park for about as long as Tichenor has been assign to her church.

Oh No Charlie

The Tribune also notices that “The Outlaws’ logo of a skull and crossed pistons, along with the slogan ‘God forgives, Outlaws don’t,’ are posted on the exterior of the clubhouse.”

Tichenor graciously acknowledges that in the United States, at least for the time being, the motorcycle club enjoys “the freedom of speech to post their logo on the clubhouse, no matter how ominous it is.”

Tichenor is crashing her cymbols now because the city recently announced plans to renovate Barr Park. Upgrades would include new equipment and playground mats. Tichenor wants to deny the neighborhood those improvements until the Outlaws go away.

The clubhouse and the park are both five blocks from the church.

According to Marcum, there have been no incidents between neighborhood residents and club members.

One anonymous resident interviewed by Tejeda told the reporter club members “mind their own business.”

Marcum told the Tribune the city does not have the money to buy the clubhouse and that the Reverend Tichenor’s concerns “are not shared by the neighborhood.”

But the Tribune spelled Tichenor’s name right, anyway.

    Ms tichenors views dont seem to jive with the love and accept all message Jesus was putting out. Maybe she needs to move .

  2. Potmetal Says:

    I would love to see a proportionally scaled comparison of the volume of arrests of military members within a mile of their military base versus the volume of bikers arrested within a mile of their clubhouse.

    Crackpots like this pastor only serve to poison people’s minds with the the bullshit they spew. Yet the lemmings follow them blindly.

    “the Reverend Tichenor’s concerns “are not shared by the neighborhood.”

    Joliet is such a breeding-ground of good taste and cultural acceptance.

    Or something.

    How about the other side of the coin ! It could be argued that if people want to take their children to a park that is free of drug pushers and other nefarious activities that the safest place they could go would be a park near a MC clubhouse because unlawful activity is not permitted there ! MCs are persecuted enough for deeds that they have nothing to do with, to allow anyone with “ill will or unlawful behavior” to do so near their well known premises would just be stupid !

  5. Ziocles Says:

    Jesus fucking Christ.

    No record of crime in or around the club house but the phrase on the buidling is “ominous”

    adjective: ominous

    giving the impression that something bad or unpleasant is going to happen; threatening; inauspicious.
    “there were ominous dark clouds gathering overhead”

    Is or society so sissified that knowing that you will be held accountable for your actions is scary?

    Don’t shit on people and you wouldn’t need their forgiveness in the first place.

    A Methodist pointing fingers?…. they must have ran off the Southern Baptists all ready.

    This “Christian,” ?????……

  7. The Great One Says:

    I’m thinking .. the neighborhood kids are safer there than anywhere else in the city.

  8. NCRider Says:

    Mrs. Tichenor: I hope you are reading this. You are in the wrong profession. It is “Christians” like you that turn people away from God. I only hope the congregation and other Church leaders are not like you. I am a Methodist. I ride a motorcycle. And I am not a self righteous hypocrite that judges people. The Outlaws MC have not done anything to endanger the park. You recognize that, right?? Wonder what you would do if a club member visited your Church. I thought all were welcomed, right??

    So the Outlaws Club House is 5 blocks from the church? Tichenor is claiming the presence of the bikers and their club house is keeping people from coming to her church. So the people who live close to the Outlaws clubhouse say the bikers mind their own business and dont cause them any trouble.

    This sounds to me much like Ms.Tichenor’s church isn’t having the worshiper’s maybe due to the person running the show there. Could it be that Ms.Tichenor views and what she preaches about in her sermons along with her views of what the community wants don’t quite line up with the people in the community and her parishioners.

    Tichenor wants the City to withhold monies that are projected to be granted to the community to help revitalize the area in the neighborhood via upgraded playground equipment, etc for the kids that live in the area now and to attract families to the community but wouldn’t do anything for her church 5 blocks away?

    So punishing the community and the kids in the neighborhood with upgraded playground equipment and space because a clubhouse is nearby (which the neighbors where the clubhouse is located say there is no issues of concern with the Outlaw members or their members and they mind their own business) because someone wants to make something out of nothing

    This sounds to me like Ms.Tichenor agenda has nothing to do with the Outlaws at all or the community. I would be of the opinion that Ms.Tichenor is looking to drum up publicity to get people into her church and get the collection plate full to support her wage along with maybe getting the city to pay for upgrades to her church thru the way of these grants.

    Ms.Tichenor may be hoping that by jumping on the soap box and proclaiming how the Outlaw’s and their clubhouse are preventing children from going to the park and maybe even her church she will save her church’s dwindling membership and collection plate coffers.

    I imagine that the city grant is only partial and the community has to match a certain portion of funds. If there was a community effort where the city would contribute a grant towards the park and the community had to do the other portion thru some funds and sweat equity, it would not surprise me at all if the outlaws and it’s members contribute to that effort thru funds and sweat equity in helping get the playground grounds ready and equipment installed, it would not be unheard of.

    Sorry Ms.Tichenor but your quest to make the Outlaws the devil and you the savior falls on it’s face when the community and the members in it say the bikers mind their own business and cause them no problems. Looks like you will have to figure out another way to boost your dwindling membership and collection plate revenues

    Right cause the drunk heroin addict mumbling on a bench and pissing himself doesnt make them leave.

  11. Brad H Says:

    I wonder if one of the alphabet gangs keep statistics on how many children, boys and girls, have been molested and raped by religious organizations compared to motorcycle clubs? My guess would be clubs 0, bible thumpers 10,000 and counting. See ya in hell Bitch!

  12. russell1946 Says:

    As a long time hangaround (32 years), I can attest to the fact that these men love and cherish every child and teenager they encounter, including my son and my daughter when they were in elementary and high school.

  13. Road Whore Says:

    Hmmm…walk past a church (and I’ve had more than considerable experience with churches) to get to a park, or walk past an Outlaws Clubhouse to get to a park…

    I would ask some Outlaws members to safely escort me past the church so that I could then enjoy the park.

  14. L-Frame S&W Says:

    How about we do a per capita comparison of how many church members have molested children vs how many Outlaws have molested children?

    I’d trust the Outlaws with my kid’s life and well being before I’d ever trust a church of any kind. Heck just google a bit and look at all the cases of childhood sexual abuse perpetrated by church staff of all denominations. I’ve personally known a few of these church goers that ended up in prison because they were fucking their daughters while preaching on Sundays.

  16. Bone Head Says:

    Religion was created by man; an imperfect being. Created in a way to justify man’s own wants and greed. This “minister” is a perfect example. She condemns the Outlaws very existence. For personal reasons of gain. If the city ever does try and shutdown that clubhouse, you can be sure the good minister and/or some of her congregation will jump right in to gain ownership. Here’s wishing the Outlaws a long and quiet stay at that clubhouse.

    @Sieg “Joliet is such a breeding-ground of good taste and cultural acceptance.”… Lmao…. Twain’s got nothing on you with that statement.. I lived there for a while back in the 70s…


  18. JIM666 Says:

    Fact anyplace where there’s a clubhouse of any 1% club is the safest street in that city unless its an io clubhouse

  19. oldskewl Says:

    I googled the church and it’s surrounded by about at least 10 other churches in a 10 block radius. Also, the church has negative reviews from the search, showing a 1 star rating from three different websites and a 4 star rating from facebook.

    Most of the negative reports are about how nasty possible church attendees are treated when asking about the church by telephone or email.

    The Tribunes article has a picture of the little clubhouse and the neighboring park. The park closes at dusk…

    What a farce.
    some people are so narrow minded they peep through a key hole using both eyes simultaneously.
    Ms Tichnor needs a check-up from her neck-up


  21. Burt Says:

    I bet the safest place in Joliet is next to the Outlaw’s club house.


  22. The Kraut Says:

    WTF? Yet another cardboard christian with a toenail in its twat…

    Religion…still a lame reason to be intolerant and greedy.

    fuckabuncha religous cunts!

    Respects to those who warrant respect

  23. Drifter Says:

    Crazy, I can’t help but think of the Missionaries of Charity Nuns (think Mother Teresa, those Women are gallant imo), and them working in the highly desperate and impoverished throes of places like Calcutta and Tijuana. Makes her sound like a sniveling self interested hypocrite.

    Tichenor these Women make you look like well, a pussy!


    Missionaries care for those who include refugees, ex-prostitutes, the mentally ill, sick children, abandoned children, lepers, people with AIDS, the aged, and convalescent. They have schools run by volunteers to educate street children, they run soup kitchens, as many other services as per the communities’ needs. They have 19 homes in Kolkata (Calcutta) alone which include homes for women, for orphaned children, and for the dying; an AIDS hospice, a school for street children, and a leper colony. These services are provided, without charge, to people regardless of their religion or social caste.

  24. BMW Says:

    True Christians know that Christianity has only two commandments, straight from the words of Jesus (who these so-called Christians supposedly follow): Love G*d, and love thy neighbor as yourself. Looks like Rev T’s training didn’t include the Christian Bible! I have lived for years in inner city neighborhoods, and would have been happy to have ANY true 1%club as a neighbor. The churches that were neighbors were sometimes cool, but more often arrogant neighbors!

  25. Candyman1340 Says:

    I think the Church need some new membership……..maybe some bikers can go class up the church’s parking lot by parking their bikes out front as they confess their sins inside. When they see bikers are just humans who have their shit together without hang ups they will feel bad for being so judgmental.

  26. Christina Says:

    Isn’t there something better she could do, with her time like; feed & clothed the poor, work on a beautification project for the area, help elderly get transportation (if needed), you know that sort if thing. I’ve heard about ppl being thirsty, but this bitch is dehydrated. N does she know about some of the wonderful work the club does, for toys for tots, n visiting children’s hospitals, so they can have toys for their bdays & Xmas? Sounds like the 1%ers r more Christ like, than the minister

  27. RtC Says:

    My O-L was never around bikers till she met me. Then after about a yr together,
    she told our local pig/cop that”She never felt safer than when she was in the
    midst of about 1000 1%er’s.” We have done most of the mid-west parties & I’m
    not the only one who misses doing that! Have good PH friends who are welcome
    in our home ANY time!
    Organized RELIGION is FANATASISM IMHO so fuck this bitch “preacher”! Bet she is
    related to that bastard Phelps here in Ks.!

    RESPECTS to the REAL REGULARS & especially REBEL!

  28. Ol'Goat Says:

    Dont Lump this Slightly arrogant and uptight preacher woman in with the rest of the Christians. Most Christians are not like her. To the outlaw patch holders: Drop by sometime and Visit. My guess is you will be well received by everyone except her

  29. Base Says:

    Seems preacher lady needs to get laid real bad. In many cases where people are wound tight some intimate attention from another person is a good way to loosen up. She should attend a couple gatherings at the MC’s Club house, she may find Mr. Right, or Mr. Right now, or a Ms. what ever her personal preference is.

    Her follow up sermon could be about how she braved the lions den and came out a changed person!

    Matthew 7:1-5
    1 “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. 3 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
