TO DEADLY DENIAL/SCOTT LIVELY--¨Here’s the smell of the blood still: all the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand.¨

Scott Lively,  ¨reprobate homophobe¨
 Homophobe tries to play Joan of Arc when he really should try out for Lady MacBeth

Scott Lively, the anti-gay activist partly responsible for the “kill the Gays” bill in Uganda is complaining that he is being unfairly attacked.

Lively has recently claimed to have toned down his rhetoric in an effort to refocus his so-called “good fight” on helping the underprivileged in Massachusetts. However, he is finding out that his past reputation for demonizing the lgbt community will not go away. the facts about Scott Lively HERE

Scott Lively was one of three American activists to speak at an anti-gay conference in Kampala, Uganda on March 5-7, 2009.
¨The other two participants (in the Kampala, Uganda anti-gay Conference) were Exodus International board member Don Schmierer and International Healing Foundation’s Caleb Lee Brundidge. Two weeks after the conference, Lively bragged that he had delivered a “nuclear bomb against the gay agenda in Uganda.” Ex-Gay Watch and Box Turtle Bulletin have obtained some videos of that conference, and for the first time we get to see what that “nuclear bomb” looks like.

This first video explores that “nuclear bomb” and its repercussions. In this video, you will see:

Lively’s defense against being labeled a “hate group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center (Ex-Gay Watch has posted a longer unedited video segment of his defense),

■ Lively’s equating homosexuality with Nazism and fascism, and blaming the 1994 Rwandan genocide on gay people,

■ Lively’s reinforcement of the false stereotype of gay people as child molesters,

■ Lively denouncing foreign influences to “promote” homosexuality,

■ Lively describing AIDS as just punishment for homosexuality,

■ and the aftermath of Lively’s “nuclear bomb” in Uganda.

Of the three videos we are debuting today, this is the most important as it puts Lively’s presentation in context with existing homophobia in Uganda.  see the videos HERE
