Lively3

The Boston Globe is reporting that evangelical hatemonger Scott Lively has gathered the necessary signatures to qualify for the November ballot as an independent candidate for governor. 

The Secretary of the Commonwealth's office confirmed Wednesday that Lively's campaign submitted 11,494 valid signatures, far above the 10,000 needed to secure ballot access as an independent this fall.

Lively joins the future Republican and Democratic nominees as well as independent candidate Evan Falchuk as candidates certified for the November ballot.

Back in March, Britain's Channel 4 looked at Lively's involvement with Uganda's anti-gay law and his long-shot candidacy in Massachusetts. You can check out that video, AFTER THE JUMP...

Scott Lively Takes Aim At The 'Dangerous Heresy' Of Gay-Affirming Christians - VIDEO

Lively2

Vile homophobe Scott Lively has taken to promoting a brochure attacking gay-affirming Christians, even those who disagree with the religious right’s odd obsession with homosexuality but believe it to be a sin, reports Right Wing Watch.

Lively is known for helping to spread anti-gay laws in Africa (an allegation he denies) and for his book The Pink Swastika, which blamed gay people for the rise of Nazi Germany.

The brochure, A Biblical answer to the question of homosexuality and the rise of “gay theology” in today’s church, is being promoted by Lively on BarbWire, the virulently homophobic website belonging to anti-gay wingnut Matt Barber.

LivelyIt includes 18 short interpretations of Bible passages that Lively says make his point that homosexuality is “the harbinger of God’s wrath.” It also states that:

  • “Not a single Biblical passage portrays homosexuality positively.”

  • “Condemnation of homosexuality predates the Mosaic code and is reaffirmed in the New Testament, so it bears no relation to the ban on ‘eating oysters’ or other supposedly ‘repealed laws of the Bible.”

  • “Jesus unequivocally condemned ALL sexual sin including homosexuality by affirming the ‘one flesh’ paradigm of Genesis.”

In the BarbWire post, Lively says the LGBT equality movement is pursuing a long-term “blueprint for supplanting Biblical morality with sexual anarchy — in essence, the overthrow of family-centered Christian civilization.”

He argues that the “one last barrier to ‘gay’ cultural hegemony remains: the Christian church. All of the battle-hardened ‘gay rights’ activists with all of their formidable resources are mobilized for an assault on Christianity itself under the hijacked rainbow banner of ‘Gay Theology. Indeed, the process has already begun, like the retreat of the tide before the tsunami.”

Lively also takes the time to sell his hatred for hard cash, referring to himself as “one of a small group of highly educated and experienced pro-family advocates available on a limited basis for speaking, seminars and Christian media interviews at sdllaw@gmail.com.”

And in case you missed it earlier this month, watch Lively's 'debate' with newly out Christian singer Vicky Beeching, AFTER THE JUMP... (the debate starts at the 5-minute mark, following a profile of Beeching.

Scott Lively Says He's 'Not Unhappy' Uganda's Anti-gay Law Was Overturned

Lively

Scott Lively, the American evangelical hatemonger who helped Uganda pass its brutal anti-gay law, has written a column claiming he's "not unhappy" the law was struck down in its present form and says he's now waiting for calls of apology from media outlets who "for years have insinuated (or outright insisted) that the Ugandans were merely my puppets in a nefarious scheme to persecute homosexuals there"

Writes Lively:

The maliciously deceitful attempt by the global “gay” movement and its media allies to paint Uganda as a pariah state filled with hateful bigots (as in the propaganda film “God Loves Uganda”), is simply a disgusting modern example of the same “blood libel” used against the Jews by the Nazis.

I am not unhappy that the Ugandan law as written has been nullified. I have always said it was too harsh and did not emphasize prevention and therapy for homosexual disorder. The law’s enactment and quick repeal conclusively demonstrate that Ugandans can think for themselves, are capable of self-governance, and do not need “enlightened” Marxists and homosexual militants from the West to shape their public policy and uphold the rule of law.

Lively, who is set to stand trial for "crimes against humanity" for his role in helping pass Uganda's bill, has been steadfast in his denial of having any role in drumming up anti-gay hysteria in Uganda...despite video showing Lively 'educating' Ugandan lawmakers on how gays are "evil," "serial killers" and "Nazis"

Anti-Gay American Evangelicals Depicted as the Hateful Cartoon Characters They Are: VIDEO

Homophobes

Political cartoonist Mark Fiore calls out anti-gay hatemongers Bryan FischerScott Lively, Tony Perkins and Rick Warren for playing ignorant after encouraging Uganda to pass its horrendous law which penalizes LGBT people with life imprisonment. 

Fiore writes:

"Since Uganda's anti-gay law was signed recently, it's been amusing (and maddening) to watch various religious right characters scurry for cover. When nobody was watching, the holier-than-thou set have been visiting Uganda preaching their extreme anti-gay views. Now that people are appalled at Uganda's life-in-prison-for-homosexuals law, the "evangelical" right-wing preachers are laying low or rewriting history."

And if you enjoy this video, you'll love Fiore's takes on Arizona’s discrimination licenseRepublicans love gay marriage and straights who have been injured by gay marriage.

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.
