Why Yes, That Is Scott Lively

Scott LivelyBTB reader KZ left a comment on Timothy’s post about the Anti-Gay Activists who were trying to get arrested and charged with a hate crime for “preaching” against homosexuality. KZ asked,

Is that Scott Lively in the background of the picture?

Why yes, it is Scott Lively, second to the left, standing next to Gary Cass.The full picture is below. Click on it to enlarge and see for yourself.

Scott Lively is the author of the Pink Swastika, in which he charges that the Nazi movement was, at its core, a homosexual movement, and that gays were responsible for the Holocaust. While speaking at the anti-gay conference in Kampala, he blamed the Rwandan genocide on “butch” gay men.

And that’s barely the tip of the iceberg. He is associated with not just one, not two, but three of just eleven organizations identified by the SPLC as a hate group (He co-founded Watchmen on the Walls, founded Abiding Truth Ministries, and he is now the leader of the School of Christian Activism). If that weren’t enough, he spoke at a banquet last winter for a fourth SPLC hate group, MassResistance. This man knows hate speech backwards and forwards. And if he can’t get arrested in Washington for violating a non-existent hate speech law, nobody can.

I thought Scott Lively, esq., had retired from being “a front-lines opponent of the homosexual movement”. Still more money to be milked from fearful x-tians I guess…

werdna, I can’t imagine someone with a heart that full of hate (this is a man who makes Dobson look positively friendly) would ever retire from what he loves best: bashing LGBTs.

WOW, why have I never heard of this dusch head before? I’m 31 but he must be before my time. Could it be true that gays are the reason for the NAZI’s, I mean I know they killed gays along with jews but what if that was just a front to hide themselves? Eh I’m thinking too much right now.
