A magistrate is denying a request to dismiss charges against a religious activist who filmed himself burning L-G-B-T-Q books from the Orange City Public Library. 

Paul Dorr of Ocheyedan (oh-CHEE'-din) wanted the fifth-degree criminal mischief charged dropped, claiming the Sioux County attorney singled him out and others were not prosecuted for similar conduct.  But the magistrate ruled Door failed to prove it and said he did not engage in conduct similar to other library patrons. 

Dorr posted a video of himself burning four books last October during the city's pride festival.  His trial is set for August 6th.
