We’ve dealt with mad anti-gay bigots before, but even the most insane among them rarely venture to the rabid insanity of Scott Lively (well, Bryan Fischer does, not unexpectedly). Lively is a whacko Taliban fundamentalist who blames gays for virtually everything (terrorism, Islam, natural disaster, communism, Obama, oil prices, you name it). He is most famous for writing, with Kevin Abrams, the book “The Pink Swastika”, in which they “argue” that gays were behind the Nazi Party. Yes. The German Nazis were really gays, or at least swayed by the gay agenda. The evidence is, well, unclear (but Lively emphasizes that these were not the feminine “swish” gays, but the brutal, ultra-macho “butch” gays). The Nazi party was appealing to the gays because:
“[the gays] are all fundamentally social outcasts and consequently have a community of interests which tends to make them think and feel more or less alike. […] homosexuals, too, frequently regard themselves as a special form of creation or as chosen ones whose destiny it is to initiate a new order […] The fact that underneath they feel themselves to be different and ostracized from normal social contacts usually makes them easy converts to a new social philosophy which does not discriminate against them [like … the Nazi party?].”
In fact, the atrocities committed by the Nazis were driven by the immoral urges of the gay Nazi elite. The well-known anti-gay laws and mass murders of homosexuals in Nazi Germany were just a distraction to conceal the fact that Nazis were gay.
According to Lively “There is a war that is going on in the world. There is a war that is waging across the entire face of the globe. It's been waging in the United States for decades, and it's been waging in Europe for decades. It's a war between Christians and homosexuals.”
Lively, who is the former head of the California branch of the American Family Association has also written “7 Steps to Recruit-Proof Your Child” and “Redeeming the Rainbow”. He also runs the organization Watchman on the Walls, and has been involved in the infamous Ugandan anti-gay laws. In 2009 Lively, Don Schmierer (to be covered later) and Caleb Lee Brundidge gave a series of talks in Kampala on the gay agenda – “that whole hidden and dark agenda” – and the threat homosexuals posed to Bible-based values and the traditional African family. The talks (more on Lively’s actual talk can be found here) famously inspired the development of a private member's Anti-Homosexuality Bill in the Ugandan parliament. The bill called for the death penalty in some cases, and received international opprobrium. After Uganda was criticized for killing some homosexuals, Lively, in batshit insane angry mode, expressed his condemnation – of the criticism! Uganda is the victim here, of the international gay agenda.
Lively is also the president of the Abiding Truth Ministries, designated – unsurprisingly – by Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group. You can read Lively’s open letter to the gay community explaining his motives and history here.
Diagnosis: Completely corrupted, raging crackpot bigot whose main goal seems to be genocide, Lively is an utterly repugnant human being (and a complete madman) who is already morally if not legally partially responsible for several deaths and should be indicted for crimes against humanity. And a really frightening number of wingnuts actually listen to him. Extremely dangerous.
