Scott Lively...scheduled to spew his quasi religious anti-Gay poison again!
¨Scott Lively is going to be in Temecula next week at the invitation of the Murrietta Temecula Republican Assembly. They were going to hold their meeting at the Temeku Hills Country Club, but had to change venues due to threats of protests. When I find out where they WILL be, I will blog the time/location. I will be there.
Scott Lively is the author of a book called The Pink Swastika, in which he revises the history of the holocaust to say that gays were the motivating force behind the Shoah.
Scott Lively is the leader of the Abiding Truth ministries, and the California chapter of the American Family Association (remember Don Wildmon?).
Scott Lively attacked a lesbian woman in 1992 while she was filming a documentary. He dragged her by the hair. She sued him for damages and won.
Scott Lively is the founder of the hate group The Watchmen on the Walls, which he founded in Latvia during his missionary work in that country. The Christian evangelical group is radically anti-gay and active in California and other West Coast areas where there is a large Russian immigrant community. Several young men affiliated with this group are responsible for the murder of a Sacramento area gay man.¨
Fundamentalist ¨Christianazis¨ Plan anti-LGBT ¨task force¨ in Uganda
¨Scott Lively just recently returned from Uganda where he completed a speaking tour in which he taught about "the gay agenda" in this country where homophobia is so rampant that it is a crime punishable by imprisonment. He was acutely aware of international criticism of his visit.
´I’m writing from Kampala, Uganda where I am teaching about the “gay” agenda in churches, schools colleges, community groups and in Parliament. My visit here is being treated as an international crisis by the “gay” activists and their media toadies, who are spinning lies in their usual manner, but the Ugandan response has been resoundingly positive.´
So he offered his "positive" suggestion to the people of Uganda.
´... the law against homosexuality should be liberalized to give arrestees the choice of therapy instead of imprisonment¨
This news report came out two days ago - prior to the one we reported today. In it, newly ex-gay George Oundo presented some rather strong claims in Uganda:
A man shocked parents on Sunday when he confessed to recruiting school children into homosexuality as part of a programme to promote the practice in Ugandan schools.
George Oundo said funders gave them “much money” and training abroad and that he would target mostly the needy children who had problems of tuition and pocket money and “others who like outings.”
Oundo describes a rather structured effort
Oundo said he got seriously involved in promoting homosexuality in 2003. “I was taken to Nairobi for training,” he said. “I used to supply pornographic materials in form of books and compact discs showing homosexuality to young boys in many schools,” he explained.
And Oundo identifies the culprits
The training, he said, was facilitated by Gay and Lesbian Coalition. “I also got the pupils’ telephone contacts. We used to meet with both girls and boys in schools during ceremonial parties,” he asserted.
Oundo said homosexuality was spread by international human rights organisations.
In the West most readers would recognize this as rather outlandish and not be quick to believe Oundo’s statements. Uganda, however, is fertile ground for these statements and it is almost certain that this seed will grow vines.
It is difficult to know the motivation for Oundo’s actions and statements. But perhaps it helps to know that Oundo was a gay activist who in September was arrested for “recruiting homosexuals”, beaten, denied food and medication, and held for several days until international pressure from human rights organization led to their release. I think that it is likely not coincidental that Oundo’s statements now vindicate the police claim and vilify the human rights groups.
The Christian community in Uganda has now declared war on the lives of gay men and women in that county. And they have been abetted by American leaders in the anti-gay and ex-gay ministries.
AMERICAN, Scott Lively suddenly appeared as a Ugandan ¨ethics consultant¨ and ¨authority¨ on LGBT people for the Ugandan ¨government and church officials.¨ Lively participanted at the recent Ugandan anti-LGBT Conference, last week. Scott had co-authored the book "The Pink Swastika." Scott Lively writes in "The Pink Swastika": ¨Like their Nazi predecessors, today's homosexualists lack any scruples.¨
IMPORTANT WARNING and a NOTE from respected author/historian Michelle Goldberg regarding Scott Lively´s anti-gay Holocaust revisionism:
Sadly, these Americans wish to pretend that their actions have no consequences, that they were just presenting “a compassionate, biblical view of homosexuality” to the world and that they bear no responsibility for any blood shed as a direct result of their anti-gay missionary efforts.And make no mistake, there will be blood shed.¨
It is impossible, irresponsible and near fully-demented to PRETEND that anti-LGBT instigators are not responsible for the consequences of their fear and hate-mongering at Church and beyond.
¨Other pastors yesterday told journalists in Kampala the war against sodomy would be long and challenging but must be fought.¨
Anglican Archbishops Akinola/Nigeria and Orombi/Uganda are amongst the leaders of the deadly ¨Witch Hunt¨ against LGBT Christians and others at all levels of everyday and religious life.
¨In Uganda, “war” is not engaged by polite discourse and ballot box propositions.
It is not often in life that we experience real evil. But I do not hesitate to state that the participation of Exodus International in this conference and the justification of this anti-gay incitement by its president, Alan Chambers, is truly evil.¨
The ¨two faced¨ evil passive/aggressive instigators
NOW A REMINDER/ALARMING and DOUBLE MEANING MESSAGE DIRECTLY BROUGHT TO US FROM DANGEROUS decendents of the ¨HYPOCRITES OF THE BIBLE¨ WHO THEMSELVES PARTICIPATED IN THE ANTI-LGBT CONFERENCE AND REAFFIRMED THE CONFERENCE CONCLUSIONS
AMERICAN Alan Chambers, of American Exodus, says ¨we strongly oppose acts of aggression against any individual or group individuals...¨
EXODUS INTERNATION OPPOSES NAME CALLING OR ACTS OF AGGRESSION AGAINST SAME-SEX ATTRACTED CHRISTIANS and OTHERS?Exodus International affirms that gay-identified individuals and those who struggle with same-sex attraction are persons for whom Jesus Christ died and loves equally. Therefore, we strongly oppose bullying, name calling and acts of aggression against any individual or group of individuals for any reason.¨
NOW, A CREDIBLE VOICE OF RELIGIOUS TRUTH at THE ANGLICAN COMMUNION:
THANKS BE TO GOD FOR AN AUTHENTIC, HUMBLE and BELIEVABLE STATEMENT OF GOOD-WILL, RELIGIOUS SANITY AND GODS LOVE FOR ALL IN THE STATEMENT OF UNIVERSAL APOLOGY TO LESBIAN, GAY, BI-SEXUAL AND TRANSGENDER CHRISTIANS AND OTHERS FROM DESMOND TUTU, THE ANGLICAN ARCHBISHOP EMERITUS OF CAPE TOWN, WINNER OF THE NOBEL PRIZE FOR PEACE
¨May I wholly inadequately apologize to my sisters and brothers who are gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered for the cruelty and injustice that you have suffered and continue to suffer at the hands of us, your fellow Anglicans; I am sorry. Forgive us for all the pain we have caused you and which we continue to inflict on you."
ARCHBISHOP DESMOND, HELP US, PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY and PREACH FOR US AS EXTREMISTS, AT CHURCH, ARE ¨CONTINUING TO INFLICT PAIN¨ ON LESBIAN, GAY, BI-SEXUAL and TRANSGENDER CHRISTIANS AND OTHER MEMBERS OF HUMANITY. IT´S NOW BECOME A EVEN MORE URGENT MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH IN UGANDA, NIGERIA and beyond.

NOTE: Bishop Henri Orombi of Uganda is actively supporting the Government sponsored anti-LGBT ¨witch hunt¨ that is currently underway in Uganda at all levels of society. Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgender Anglican Christians, Muslims and others are being persecuted, demoralized, beaten, raped, jailed, murdered and fully abused by extremist fundamentalist ¨Christians¨ and their accomplices. By promoting the feardriven Christian Fundamentalist ¨anti-Gay¨ agenda, Orombi is not serving as a ¨God loving, neighbor loving¨ Christian servant Commanded by God at The Body of Christ...anti-Gay fundamentalists recently held a conference in Kampala and you can read all about it, details on the fear tactics, view the lies, and understand the fear and hate at the following ALERT!
ARE YOU A CHRISTIAN? PLEASE STOP THE PERPETUATING OF DANGEROUS LIES THAT ARE BEING GENERATED AGAINST LGBT UGANDANS and OTHERS. EVERYDAY LIVES OF UGANDANS ARE AT RISK OF BEING RUINED BY MARGINALIZING, DEMONIZING and THE INCITING OF FEAR AND HATE

STATE DEPARTMENT REPORT ON JAMAICA'S LGBT'S REVEAL "ARBITRARY DETENTIONS, MOB ATTACKS, STABBINGS, HARASSMENT AND TARGETED SHOOTINGS"
Jim Burroway March 17th, 2009
Two weeks ago, the U.S. State Department issued its annual Human Rights Report for 2008. Jamaica, a favorite holiday destination for millions of Americans, was singled out for extensive official and unofficial abuse of LGBT citizens of that country.
Other Societal Abuses and Discrimination The law prohibits “acts of gross indecency” (generally interpreted as any kind of physical intimacy) between men, in public or in private, which are punishable by 10 years in prison.
The Jamaica Forum for Lesbians, All Sexuals, and Gays (J-FLAG) continued to report human rights abuses, including arbitrary detention, mob attacks, stabbings, harassment of homosexual patients by hospital and prison staff, and targeted shootings of homosexuals. Police often did not investigate such incidents.
J-FLAG members also suffered attacks on their property, home intrusions as people demanded to know the number of persons and beds in a home, and in one instance, a fire bombing at the home of two men that left one of them with burns on more than 60 percent of his body. In addition homosexuals faced death and arson threats, with some of these directed at the J-FLAG offices. J-FLAG did not publicize its location due to such threats, and its officials reported feeling unsafe having meetings with clients at the organization’s office.
In February a mob broke into the home of four presumed homosexual men, killing three of them. The fourth was missing and presumed dead. The men had reported being harassed for their perceived sexual orientation prior to the fatal attack. Police made some inquiries in the case but did not conduct a full investigation or make any arrests by year’s end.
The trial of six suspects arrested for the 2005 robbery and murder of Lenford “Steve” Harvey, initially begun and then postponed in 2007, was scheduled to recommence in January 2009.
Male inmates deemed by prison wardens to be homosexual were held in a separate facility for their protection. The method used for determining their sexual orientation was subjective and not regulated by the prison system, although inmates were said to confirm their homosexuality for their own safety. There were numerous reports of violence against homosexual inmates, perpetrated by the wardens and by other inmates, but few inmates sought recourse through the prison system.
Homosexual men were hesitant to report incidents against them because of fear for their physical well-being. Lesbian women were subject to sexual assault as well as other physical attacks. Human rights NGOs and government entities agreed that brutality against homosexuals, primarily by private citizens, was widespread in the community.
Anglican anti-LGBT Archbishop Drexel Gomez of The West Indies and other religious and public officials "shrug off anti-LBGT violence"
It's time for RELIGIOUS LEADERS TO CALL FOR JUSTICE AND TOLERANCE:
Anglican Bishop Alfred Reid, Jamaica:
"It should be emphasised that the Church in Jamaica, in collegiality with others in the Province of the West Indies and the rest of the worldwide Communion, seeks to work for consensus, not divisiveness, and to maintain the fellowship of the Communion without compromising its integrity," Reid said. "It is in that spirit that ongoing discussions on the most contentious and often painful matter will be conducted."
THE ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY IS COMING TO JAMAICA, MAY 2-14, 2009 TO "EXCHANGE INFORMATION BETWEEN THE 38 PROVINCES AND CHURCHES IN THE ANGLICAN COMMUNION" PERHAPS ARCHBISHOP ROWAN WILLIAMS AND THE REST OF THE "150 DELEGATES REPRESENTING 164 NATIONS" (especially Bishop Drexel Gomez, Primate of The West Indies and Dr Alfred Reid, Bishop of Jamaica and the Cayman Islands) WILL ISSUE CALLS FOR DISCUSSION OF THE INTOLERANCE DIRECTED AGAINST LGBT ANGLICANS/CHRISTIANS AND OTHERS BEFORE WE ARE ALL PERSECUTED AND MURDERED IN COLD BLOOD BY EVERYDAY THUGS (RELIGIOUS OR NOT)!
The Rt. Rev. Alfred Reid (left), Anglican Bishop of Jamaica, planning the upcoming ACC Meeting with the Rt. Rev. Robert Thompson, Anglican Suffragan Bishop of Kingston who is the "Design Chair" for the event.
IT IS TIME THE ANGLICAN COMMUNION STARTS DEALING WITH THE DEADLY REALITY OF RELIGIOUS INTOLERANCE AND THE SELFRIGHTEOUS ENCOURAGING OF HOMOPHOBIC HATRED THAT IS OFTEN PREACHED AS 'BIBLICAL' AND IMPLIMENTED AS 'LOVING THE SINNER AND HATING THE SIN.' HOWEVER, THIS 'SPIRITUALIKE FANTASY' VIOLATES BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS AND TAKES THE FORM OF ABUSE WHEN PROMOTING THE HATE CRIMES THAT ARE RUNNING RAMPANT IN JAMAICA, UGANDA, NIGERIA AND BEYOND!
WHERE is the outreach and MINISTRY for LGBT ANGLICANS IN JAMAICA, UGANDA, NIGERIA and THE MIDDLE EAST? Must tens of thousands more LGBT CHRISTIANS/OTHERS SUFFER VILE HUMILIATION, OUTCASTING AND TORMENT before RELIGIOUS AUTHORITIES ADDRESS FEAR AND HATE-MONGERING AT CHURCH?
LGBT CHRISTIANS are being abused, persecuted, jailed, demoralized and murdered DAILY in the UNITED KINGDOM, CANADA, THE UNITED STATES, AFRICA, THE MIDDLE EAST and LATIN AMERICA.
IT'S URGENTLY NECESSARY FOR DR. WILLIAMS AND THE ANGLICAN CONSULTATIVE COUNCIL TO CO-ORDINATE A "COMMON MISSIONARY ACTIVITY" THAT NOT ONLY IS A VITAL ANGLICAN LEGACY and moral RESPONSIBILITY to ALL Anglicans but will also SAVE THE LIVES of CHRISTIANS and OTHERS in the WORLD around us where bigotry and fear and hate are instigated at Church!
"EXCHANGING INFORMATION" hasn´t been rejecting, OR DENOUNCING, well known chronic VIOLATORS OF HUMAN RIGHTS preached against LGBT ANGLICANS/OTHERS IN JAMAICA, UGANDA, NIGERIA, IRAN, IRAQ AND EGYPT BY RELIGIOUS BISHOP EXTREMISTS at THE ANGLICAN COMMUNION!
WHEN "EXCHANGING INFORMATION BETWEEN THE 38 PROVINCES AND CHURCHES IN THE ANGLICAN COMMUNION" CHAIRPERSON ARCHBISHOP ROWAN WILLIAMS AND THE REST OF THE "150 DELEGATES REPRESENTING 164 NATIONS" OUGHT SPEAK OUT AGAINST THE ABUSED LGBT MEMBERS OF 'THE BODY OF CHRIST.' The ABC and the ACC must ISSUE A FORMAL CALL FOR TOLERANCE FOR LGBT ANGLICANS/CHRISTIANS AND OTHERS BEFORE MORE INNOCENTS ARE UNJUSTLY PERSECUTED, DISCRIMINATED AGAINST, DEMONIZED, ABUSED, JAILED AND/OR VICTIMS OF MORE AND MORE CRIMES OF HATE and DEMORALIZATION!
NOW IS THE TIME TO DEAL WITH THE REALITY OF RELIGIOUS ABUSE THAT IS PREACHED and PROMOTED AT THE ANGLICAN COMMUNION!
IT IS TIME FOR THE ANGLICAN COMMUNION TO DEAL WITH THE REALITY OF THE RELIGIOUS INTOLERANCE AND HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSE DIRECTED AGAINST LGBT CHRISTIANS/OTHERS. THE HOMOPHOBIC HATRED THAT IS GENERATED, PREACHED AND PROMOTED FROM SOME PULPITS MUST BE CHALLENGED. VICIOUS and UNCHARITABLE BISHOPS and OTHER EXTREMIST CLERGY at ANGLICAN COMMUNION MEMBER PROVINCES harm other members at The Body of Christ. Not just a little ¨harming.¨ Acting out against LGBT Christians/others by taking violent criminal action IS RUNNING RAMPANT IN JAMAICA, UGANDA, NIGERIA, IRAQ, IRAN and EGYPT!
Doctor Rowan Williams, the 104th Archbishop of Canterbury, will visit Jamaica next month to attend a meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC).
WILLIAMS... will attend May 2 to 14 meeting in Kingston The archbishop is the president of the ACC, one of the three instruments of communion which serves the worldwide family of Anglican/Episcopal Churches.
Anglicans are said to be looking forward to the May 2 to 14 Kingston meeting, which will see some 150 delegates representing 164 nations in attendance.
The Diocese of Jamaica and the Cayman Islands said plans for the meeting are well advanced.
"The ACC was formed following a resolution of the Lambeth Conference of 1968 which identified the need for more frequent and more representative contact among the Churches than was possible through a once-a-decade conference of Bishops. The Council, which was established in October 1969, held its first meeting in 1971, and facilitates:
. Co-operative work among the churches of the Anglican Communion;
. The exchange of information between the 38 Provinces and churches in the Communion
. Co-ordination of common missionary activities common to all.
It also advises on the organisation and structures of the Communion, and seeks to develop common policies with respect to the world mission of the Church, including ecumenical matters."
IS IT TIME TO DISCUSS "SEXUAL CLEANSING?"
The Anglican Church in the Province of the West Indies. It is made up of two mainland dioceses and six island dioceses, including Barbados, Belize, Guyana, Jamaica, Nassau and the Bahamas, Tobago, Trinidad, and the Windward Islands. Great emphasis is being placed on training personnel for an indigenous ministry.
"HOW MANY OF US KNOW SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN TREATED POORLY BECAUSE THEY ARE GAY, LESBIAN, TRANSGENDERED, OR BISEXUAL? Many of us know someone who has been treated poorly because they are gay, lesbian, transgendered, or bisexual."
MOST OF THE ENLIGHTENED WORLD ENDORSES THE DECRIMIALATION OF HOMOSEXUALITY. WHAT ABOUT ++ROWAN WILLIAMS, ++DREXEL GOMEZ AND THE COUNTRY MEMBER BISHOPS OF THE ANGLICAN PROVINCE OF THE WEST INDIES WHO ARE WAY OVERDUE INSISTING ON, NON-VIOLENCE, TRUTH, HUMAN EQUALITY/DIGNITY, HONORABILITY, FEAR, HATE AND PERSONAL MORAL ACCOUNTABILITY AS THEY PREACH?

Ugandan ¨Ethics¨ Minister Says God Against Gays, Calls For Witch Hunt
James Nsaba Buturo simply can't help himself! The Ugandan "Ethics" Minister, who has long pledged to fight the homosexual scourge besieging his homeland, recently insisted that anti-gay activists shouldn't fear violent repercussions because God's on their side:
¨Dr Buturo told Africa's Sunday Monitor that there is no need to beef up security for anti-gay activists in Uganda because God is protecting them.¨
"It's true gays are rough people but men of God should not fear their intimidation. Ugandans should strengthen their mobilisation against the gay movement because the government is also committed to support them," he said.
Buturo also spoke about how the gays have infiltrated local schools and are "luring" students to the lavender side.
The government and loyalists, said Buturo, should begin compiling a list of suspected queer interlopers and, you know, have a good, old fashioned witch hunt: "I appeal to the investigative arms of the government to quickly compile reports of such students and their schools so that tough action is taken against them."
¨The Minister of Ethics and Integrity, Dr. James Nsaba Buturo has today told a conference organized to discuss the ways to fight Homosexuality that he will soon submit a bill on pornography and homosexuality for discussion in Parliament.
The conference that took place at Parliament was organized by Defend the Family International, an organization in the United States of America that was formed to fight homosexuality.¨
¨The President of Defend the Family International, Scott Lively says it is good for the government of Uganda to criminalize homosexuality but the government should subject the criminals of homosexuality to a therapy rather than imprisoning them.¨
¨Lively says this is aimed at the criminals recovering from homosexuality which is the main objective of those fighting homosexuality and not to punish homosexuals through imprisonment. He says even schools should borrow this idea of therapy in dealing with gay students.¨
DEADLY WARNING: Anglican Fundamentalist/Extremists Bishops Pete Akinola of Nigeria and Henri Orombi of Uganda threaten the right for LGBT Christians and other to EXIST and exclude LGBT ANGLICANS at all levels of Churchlife!
¨I thought I was being a bit hard on the fundamentalists yesterday, because for the life of me I try to be fair and I dislike attacking anyone's sincere religious beliefs.
However, sodomy law advocacy goes too far. So does Holocaust denial.
So does threatening my right to peacefully exist.¨ Eric
¨They are despicable, they are The Enemy, and I'm proud to be intolerant of their kind. Legal toleration (i.e., First Amendment), yes. Any other kind, no, none whatsoever, no quarter, no moral sanction whatsoever, none, period. I'll stop calling what they are, ChristiaNazis, the minute they finally stop acting like Nazis or Communists and not one minute sooner.
And, by the way, the first person to bring up "Goodwin's law" has lost the argument. "Goodwin's law" is a crock, and this Prof. Goodwin is either a crypto-Nazi himself or else at best a useful idiot paving the way for another Auschwitz.¨
¨Kampala Anti-gay activists in Uganda Saturday formed a pressure group to discourage homosexuality, following a two-day conference of religious leaders, teachers and social workers in the capital Kampala.
The group, to be called the Anti-Gay Task Force, is intended to "fight against the spread of homosexuality and lesbianism in the country," spokesman for the group Stephen Langa told reporters. Same sex-relationships and marriages are illegal in Uganda, and human rights groups have criticized the government for harassing homosexuals.
The task-force said that it would one day "wipe out" gay practices in the African state.¨
Despite the odious rhetoric and violent imagery brought to the table by Scott Lively, the fallacy of “preventing homosexuality” and "blaming a parent" contributed by Exodus’ Don Schmierer, and the predictable babble coming from International Healing Foundation’s Caleb Brundidge, the following stood out to us as perhaps the most disheartening bit of all.¨

URGENT! BREAKING NEWS! THURSDAY! "Homosexuality is a 'moral and social holocaust" Anglican Church of Nigeria:
Bishop Peter Akinola of Nigeria, demonizer of fellow Christians and others, also leads a insidious campaign to nationalize/institutionalize fear and hate at every level of Nigerian society by abominating/demoralizing LGBT Christians, Muslims and others.
OPPRESSIVE, SEVERE and ANTI-GAY Human Rights Legislation is being considered at THE NIGERIAN House of Representatives TODAY! Read it all at Gay Uganda and Changing Attitudes (both at the right side bar).
The South African Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (SA GLAAD) have added their voices over the Exodus International board member Don Schmierer’s participation at the anti-gay conference alongside Holocaust revisionist Scott Lively in Kampala Uganda.
A DUMB, DEPRESSING DOCUMENT FROM PETER AKINOLA AND HIS CHURCH IN NIGERIA
"Simon Sarmiento of Thinking Anglicans has received a five-page document (PDF here), signed by Peter Akinola and submitted by the Church of Nigeria in support of legislation that would outlaw same sex marriage, which is already illegal."
LATE FRIDAY NIGHT FROM THE U.K. "THE LATEST HATE SPEECH FROM THE CHURCH OF NIGERIA"
"If ever you think the Anglican church of Nigeria cannot get more incoherently bigoted about gay people, you're wrong. The latest proof comes in a position paper (pdf) submitted by the church to a parliamentary committee which is planning a law against gay marriage. Homosexuality is already illegal in Nigeria, of course, as is gay marriage. But the proposed law would provide three years in jail for gay couples who got married, and five years for any witnesses. Earlier drafts have proposed long jail sentences, also, for anyone who argues in favour of gay marriage."
EXISTING LGBT LAWS/PENDING LEGAL POSITIONS:Orange=Strongly AGAINST LGBT CITIZENS, Wine=DEATH PENALTY for LBGT CITIZENS, Royal Blue=CIVIL UNIONS LEGAL, Dark Blue=LEGAL MARRIAGES/FULL EQUALITY, Grey=UNRESOLVED, NEUTRAL, UNKNOWN or CHALLENGED, Red=LIFE IN PRISON.
A WEEK LATER AND A TUESDAY AFTERNOON FINAL FOLLOWUP ON THE UGANDAN ANTI-LGBT CONFERENCE AT KAMPALA:
MORE INSENSITIVE SPEWING of BOLD IGNORANCE and FASCIST MEANSPIRITED ARROGANCE as DEADLY SCOTT LIVELY DEFENDS HIS DEMENTED and OBSESSIVE CONVICTION TO "FIX LGBT PEOPLE" WITH HIS SPECIAL "THERAPY." IMAGINE, MR LIVELY IS ATTEMPTING TO BLAME EMOTIONAL ILLNESS on LGBT CITIZENS IN A COUNTRY WHERE DISCRIMINATION,HATE,THEFT, RAPE ARE RUNNING RAMPANT and in a country with CIVIL WAR and EVERYDAY TRIBAL and RELIGIOUS CORRUPTION AT ALL LEVELS OF SOCIETY. DEADLY NATIONAL PROBLEMS WHICH HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH GAY PEOPLE. BTW, HOW MUCH MONEY DOES MR DEADLY LIVELY CHARGE FOR HIS MIRACLE CURE from HOMOSEXUALITY?
*NOTE TO MR LIVELY; RECOVERY FROM ALCOHOLISM ONLY REQUIRES "WILLINESS" and a "DESIRE TO STOP DRINKING" and it is FREE...it is "suggested" that you "do" start paying attention to your own "character defects"...your own, Mr. Lively, and stay out of mine and other peoples personal affairs...you may have missed the part about "God Grant Me the Serenity, to accept the things I can NOT change, the courage to change the things I CAN and the WISDOM to know the difference." Emphasis on wisdom, it's a responsible "first person" kind of thing to do to keep a eye on ones own personal character and will help you exclude fear and hate-mongering tangents/obsessions or "fund raising" activities that exploit others from your recovery from active alcoholism...only a suggestion, I've been sober for 30+ years, thanks be to God, and it's worked well for me to keep my eye on my "less than attractive/unwholesome" character defects. I strongly encourage you to do the same and STOP pontificating about other peoples ill-character (that is, the bad character that YOU perceive it to be).*
Are you on a dry, egodriven, fear/hatedriven drunk?
Holocaust revisionist Scott Lively offered a defense of his proposal to compel Ugandan gays and lesbians into forced therapy:
"And remember that homosexuality is literally illegal in this country. Imagine how bad things would be if the criminal law were abandoned. By the way, the false accusation against me, now circulating in the US, is that I called on the Ugandan government to force homosexuals into therapy. What I actually said is that the law against homosexuality should be liberalized to give arrestees the choice of therapy instead of imprisonment, similar to the therapy option I chose after being arrested for drunk driving in 1985 (during which time I accepted the Lord and was healed and transformed into a Christian activist)."
