Anti-Gay Activist Scott Lively Marches In Boston St. Patrick's Day Parade

Yesterday anti-gay activist and long-shot gubernatorial candidate Scott Lively — a man currently on trial for crimes against humanity for his role in helping pass Uganda’s odious “Kill the Gays” law — marched in Boston’s St. Patrick’s Day parade.

Scott_livelyHe also released a press statement praising the parade’s organizers for “keeping the parade a family-friendly event” by refusing the participation of LGBT Irish groups.

Part of Lively’s statement read:

“The LGBT bullies, including Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, are giving the St. Paddy’s Day Parade organizers a hard time for keeping the parade a family-friendly event, but they are standing strong for family values and not bowing to intimidation…

The media is predictably crying ’discrimination,’ but thank God the United States Supreme Court has ruled that the parade organizers have the constitutional right to exclude anyone they please.”

Boston brewer Sam Adams pulled its sponsorship from the march over its LGBT-exclusion.

Little did Lively know that the parade had a secretly gay float in it.

  1. It gets surreal when bullies like lively accuse their targets of being "bullies" for standing up to them.

  4. Wow, Boston St. Patrick's Parade! You stood firm on excluding gay groups, then actually allowed a man who travels the world advocating discrimination and pushing for pogroms and genocide?

  5. These parades are often about which groups "control" or "are in control of" the Irish population locally. All the big names are there, like the Catholic Church. Do they really have a lot of pull with the group? Probably not, but they have pull with local politicians.

  6. Weird that gay Irish groups can't march, but a guy who advocates violence through the law for gay people - is.

  7. Did he identified himself as "hater" in the parade?

  8. Keep in mind, this is the insane nutjob who holds that the Nazi Party and the Holocaust were all perpetrated by gay people. Seriously. He even wrote a book about it in 1995 called The Pink Swastika (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Pink_Swastika)

    He is one SERIOUSLY disturbed person. The fact that he is seen as "moral enough" and "family friendly enough" to be allowed into the parade shows just how deranged the parade organizers really are.

  9. The family-friendly Scott Lively has today confirmed the family-friendly St. Pat's parade in Boston to be clearly anti-gay, for why else would they allow the family-friendly Scott Lively to speak in their stead on the exclusion of the gay community from the parade (an inconspicuous little quiet float does not count).

    Please remember though how the family-friendly Scott Lively has been promoting not only the exclusion from society specific groups of HUMAN BEINGS, but has also promoted violence against human beings, violence against governments supporting human beings, and has helped along now US-Sanctioned governments to persecute human beings.

    The family-friendly Scott Lively is also against parents who embrace diversity in their children, and has encouraged parents to persecute and torture their children into becoming something they are not.

    Ladies and Gents, the apparent change in definition to "Family-Friendly".

    *Nauseated.

  10. The idea that someone of Mr. Lively's background of hatred, homophobia, etc that is allowed to march in the parade and gay people are banned......there is something wrong with this picture........

  11. Lively should deservedly be prosecuted and subsequently imprisoned by the U.S. government for spreading his deadly anti-gay sickness to other countries worldwide. Instead he was in the Boston St. Patrick's Day Parade yesterday.

    I thought that BOSTON STRONG meant something. Then again I thought that U.S. STRONG meant something too.

    Is he to get off "Scott free"?

  12. From PaganCentric:

    "It wasn’t arbitrary that the day honoring Saint Patrick was placed on the 17th of March. The festival was designed to coincide, and, it was hoped, to replace the Pagan holiday known as Ostara; the second spring festival which occurs each year, which celebrates the rebirth of nature, the balance of the universe when the day and night are equal in length, and which takes place at the Spring Equinox (March 22nd this year). In other words, Saint Patrick’s Day is yet another Christian replacement for a much older, ancient Pagan holiday; although generally speaking Ostara was most prominently replaced by the Christian celebration of Easter (the eggs and the bunny come from Ostara traditions, and the name “Easter” comes from the Pagan goddess Eostre)."

  13. So, to sum up, gay Irish guys and gals can't march in the St. Patrick's Day parade, but some guy named "Lively" can?

    I hate to question a man's heritage (this being America, home of 350% of the world's Irishmen--myself allegedly included), but that's a mighty Anglo name... is this even his parade?

  14. Its not that gays couldn't march. The organizers said they didn't want any pro-gay groups or individuals brandishing banners splashing their sexual orientation all over the parade. Most straight people are still unsure why non-heterosexual people must feel the need to publicize their non-straightness every chance they get. The organizers simply said that they did not want that in their parade. Not sure what is so wrong with that.

  15. I'm not sure that "family-friendly" means what he thinks it means. I wouldn't want kids anywhere near a noxious hate monger like him.
