The First Circuit Court of Appeals yesterday denied an attempt by anti-gay bigot Scott Lively to have a crimes against humanity suit against him dismissed
In 2012, an American group called the Center for Constitutional Rights, representing a Ugandan group called Sexual Minorities Uganda, sued Lively in federal court in Massachusetts for crimes against humanity.
Of the many anti-gay activists in the U.S., Lively is arguably the nastiest. Recently profiled in Human Rights Campaign’s Export of Hate report, Lively last week suggested that homosexuality is worse than murder.
In October, we reported that the nasty bigot – a driving force behind Uganda's "Kill the Gays" bill – appeared in a Russian state-funded "documentary" called Sodom.
Lively, the head of virulently homophobic listed hate group Abiding Truth Ministries, has been accused of helping play a part in the persecution, arrest and murder of gay people in Uganda, a charge which he has denied.
The First Circuit ruling means that Lively will now have to stand trial.
Watch the apocalyptic hate-filled "documentary" Sodom - no subtitles, but the tone gives it away – in full, AFTER THE JUMP…
