USA, Massachusetts: Adding Insult to Injury, Parade Lets Scott Lively March

Monday, March 17th, 2014

Scott LivelyThe man at least partially responsible for stirring up homophobia in Russia and Uganda and encouraging both to pass harsh anti gay laws marched in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Boston yesterday, while gays were turned away.

Seriously.

On Top Magazine reports:

Scott Lively, an ardent opponent of gay rights and a Massachusetts gubernatorial candidate, marched in South Boston’s St. Patrick’s Day parade on Sunday. The parade’s policy banning gay organizations from participating has been widely criticized. Many politicians, including Mayor Marty J. Walsh and Congressman Stephen Lynch, skipped the parade over the policy.

Could the organizers of the Boston St. Patrick’s Day Parade be any more insultingly homophobic and anti-gay than this?

USA: Persecution of Gays is a Crime Against Humanity, Judge Rules

In a case against anti-gay activist Scott Lively, a US judge ruled that persecution on the basis of gender identity and sexual orientation is a crime against humanity. Joe.My.God reports:

Today, in a first-of-its kind case brought by a Ugandan LGBTI advocacy organization against a prominent U.S. anti-gay extremist, a federal judge ruled that persecution on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity is a crime against humanity and that the fundamental human rights of LGBTI people are protected under international law. The ruling means that the case brought by the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) on behalf of Sexual Minorities of Uganda (SMUG), a Uganda-based coalition of LGBTI rights and advocacy groups, can move forward over defendant Scott Lively’s request to dismiss the lawsuit.

In the end, will there be consequences for pushing extreme anti-gay policies that may result in the imprisonment or death of LGBT folks in other countries? We’ll have to wait and see.

Uganda: US “Christian” Scott Lively Approves of Anti Gay Bill

Saturday, November 24th, 2012

Hate group leader Scott Lively is super-pleased that Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has celebrated the 50th anniversary of independence from Britain by publicly repenting of his sins and the sins of his nation. Lively also “supports the nation’s strong stance against homosexual behavior” via its pending plan to inflict life imprisonment upon LGBT people and our allies. Via World Net Daily:

“The Museveni prayer is a model for all Christian leaders in the world. The leaders of the West have declined in proportion to their degree of rejection of God,” Lively said. Lively also believes Uganda will rise as a major African power as America continues to decline. He uses Britain as an example. “Britain was at its height as a world power when it honored God as the Ugandan president has just done. America’s greatness has similarly diminished as we have shifted from a Christian to a secular-humanist country. But watch now for Uganda to be blessed by God for their desire to be His,” Lively said. Lively added that Museveni is definitely drawing a contrast between Uganda and the West. “This incident is also important as a contrast to the picture being painted of Uganda by the godless left of a backwards, violent and savage culture intent on murdering homosexuals,” Lively said. “On the contrary, Museveni is calmly and confidently setting the course of his nation by the guidance of the Bible, in a way that also shows great courage and resolve,” Lively said.

The WND article links to yesterday’s BBC claim that the death penalty has been removed from Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Act. But as I noted yesterday, Ugandan politicians have repeatedly lied about the removal of the death sentence from the bill.

Lively: Gays Will Use Prop 8 Tapes for Intimidation of Christians

Thursday, September 1st, 2011

Prop 8 Trial Video TapesScott Lively, the infamous gay death penalty advocate and spokesman for God’s Gentle Love, says homo-terrorists will wreak revenge upon Christian witnesses should the Prop 8 trial tapes be released.

“We have seen all across the country that the gay activist movement attempts to intimidate anyone who stands up for family values, and this just seems to be another example,” decides Dr. Scott Lively of DefendtheFamily.com. “There’s really no good reason for this to be released, and I would hope that the decision would go against the release.”

Judge Ware has not made a ruling on the issue, but he is expected to provide a written decision at a later date. So far, he has said that “the integrity of the judicial process is affected” when one judge promises a videotape will be used only for limited purposes and a second judge decides to make the video public.

Anti Gay Bigot Scott Lively Stirring Up Fears in Maldova

Monday, March 14th, 2011

When the Moldovan government submitted a draft antidiscrimination law to parliament last month, conservative Orthodox Christian forces in the country treated it as a call to battle.

And that call was heeded by U.S. pastor and lawyer Scott Lively, who traveled to Chisinau to warn the country against adopting any measure that would bar discrimination against homosexuals.

The bill outlaws discrimination against anyone on the basis of religion, nationality, ethnic origin, language, religion, color, sex, age, disability, sexual orientation, political opinion, or social status. It was proposed as part of Moldova’s effort to gain an association agreement with the European Union.
