Scott Lively: Marriage Equality is “Sign Of The End Times”

Jim Burroway

Could it be... Satan

Guess what folks. We’re the chosen people!  Or, rather more precisely, “God has chosen rampant homosexuality to be a key warning sign for judgment of the world as a whole, and not just of individual nations,” says Scott Lively. One proof is with the rainbow itself:

In Chapter 9 God made an everlasting promise never again to destroy the earth by water, and said “I set my bow in the cloud and it shall be for a sign of a covenant between Me and the earth.” hereafter, fire was always the symbol and means of God’s wrath…

Did you also catch the spiritual significance of the rainbow in this context? Why has the homosexual movement chosen the rainbow as its symbol? I think they are deliberately flaunting their sin under God’s nose while holding up the reminder that He promised not to destroy the earth by flood again. They are proclaiming “See, God, you can’t stop us!” which was the exact sentiment expressed by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick when he signed the first “gay marriage” policy in the nation into law: looking up at the sky he said something to the effect of “See, nothing happened.”

So, it’s Satan, definitely Satan, who is is behind all this. There is no other possible explanation:

I have made this point before, but it bears repeating. I am 53 years old. When I was born homosexuality was illegal throughout the entire world. In the space of just half a century this tiny 1-3% of the population have made themselves a global political power with greater influence in the courtrooms and legislatures of the world than the Church of Jesus Christ. This astonishing transformation surpasses that of Darwinism, Marxism, and even Islam in its speed and breadth of reach. To my thinking, this can only have been accomplished by the god of this world (Satan 2 Cor 4:4) who knows his time is short and is making his move. What is more alarming is the shocking apathy of the church, which I take as a sign of the apostasy warned about by Jesus in Matt 24:12. The “love of most” for the truth of God truly has grown cold.

Perhaps the rainbow means that gays are the “chosen” people by God, to bring down the truly evil in this world who think they are doing God’s bidding, but are in fact working for Satan, such as Scott Lively.

…or Scott Lively is a completely insane religious nutjob, that goes out of this way to find any religious text to validate his chosen homophobia.

Tough choice.

Newsflash: Scott Lively is a nutcase. We have the proof.

So.. Why does he get so much attention? He should be purchasing a plane ticket to Uganda any day now? SPLC has certified him as a nut and people still send him money?

Put him right in front of the media and let him explain his implied wish: to make all gays invisible.

Nutcases shouldn’t have that much power.

Lively said “In the space of just half a century this tiny [10%] of the population have made themselves a global political power with greater influence in the courtrooms and legislatures of the world than the Church of Jesus Christ.”.

That’s so far from reality its absurd – nothing wields more power in courtrooms and legislatures than christianity. I don’t know whether Lively is doing the standard lying when he says this, or if he actually thinks any trivial gain by gays is some massive dimunition of christianity’s influence.

His thinking the acceptance of gayness is a sign of the endtimes shows two things. He thinks his side has lost without supernatural assistance and he fantasizes about the total destruction of the earth as revenge for that loss.

Poor heterosexual me, I feel so unchosen! Now was it God or Satan who didn’t chose me? I’m a little confused. :)

I only hope my country is too secular for this particular kind of madness if he decides to pay us a “tourist” visit… but on the other hand I’m afraid even secular homophobes can learn from him.

“When I was born homosexuality was illegal throughout the entire world.”
Ummm, yeah right.
Something not being apparent or acknowledged is NOT the same thing as being illegal.
That would make air illegal, because you don’t see it and don’t think of it every second of the day. You also can’t breathe without it.

Well heck. We ARE EVERYwhere. And the most primary focus when starting a public business? Location!-Location!-Location!

Gotta love the marketing ability of mother nature on this one.

Actually, I think he’s right. I think we ARE seeing the beginning of the end times for hateful, bigoted Christianity’s reign of terror. And not a moment too soon for my taste!

How ever you define “end times” one thing is certain. The world will be a better more peaceful place once the fundamentalist Christians are gone. If the fundamentalist Jews and Muslims follow shortly thereafter it will be heaven on earth!

Homosexuality was not “illegal when I was born” butt-f*cking was. Big difference.

Why should Christians be afraid of the End Times? If they are so convinced that they are going to heaven, you would think they would be happy about it. My guess- most of them know it is a crock of crapola.

@ iDavid Google sodomy / homosexual acts law repeal and you’ll see that even if taken in that context Mr. Lively’s statement is false.

A late nineteenth century word does not and can not exist in the Bible.

Why do Paulists, who may very well have been gay himself, insist that homosexuality is a sin?

Lively seems content to stand in for the Father of Lies.

Let him.

Timothy (TRiG)

Surely homosexuality was already legal in the Netherlands, Indonesia, and Thailand, at least?

That’s so far from reality its absurd – nothing wields more power in courtrooms and legislatures than christianity.

Yes, but…

The absolute control over the shared social conscience and standards of decency that once was the church’s to wield is gone. Now they are but one voice in the conversation and it is this loss of authority that frightens Lively and feeds his paranoia.

Rather than recognize that the church’s loss of societal authority is the result of their arrogant misuse of their power and failure to fulfill their role as advocate for the less fortunate, Lively looks for some other reason.

And God letting Satan use homosexuals to bring on the end times is as useful as any other “reason” which allows him not to look too closely at himself.

Please let’s rid ourselves of DOMA and let up fly that rainbow flag even higher!

“When I was born homosexuality was illegal throughout the entire world.”

When Lively was born, there were plenty of countries where homosexual behaviour was not illegal, including France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark and Italy. I am amused, but not surprised, to see someone who claimed in one of his Ugandan discourses to know possibly more about homosexuality than anyone else in the world airing his appalling ignorance in this way. Not that anyone but a nincompoop would regard any assertion of Lively’s with anything other than severe scepticism.

Yes, I suppose that must be a big deal to him to have seen in his lifetime christianity go from being the unchallenged authority to one that isn’t automatically assumed right.

Is there anything that *isn’t* a sign to them? Woohoo the sun came up this morning! Get ready for the rapture!

They need to work up some new material.

Wait a minute, this dude claimed, in effect, to know more about gayness than actual gay people??

This dude is just bizarre, I’m seriously wondering what the hell his malfunction is. Normal people do not obsess this much about other people’s sex lives.

Here’s a sign! When I clicked on the links above to be taken to Lively’s site, Firefox’s add-on Web of Trust throws up a stern admonishment: “Warning! This site has a poor reputation.”

Pretty much sums it up for me!

And then there is their ever maniacal rapture story, “meeting Jesus in the sky”. What they don’t realize is they have to die first. Then their stinky souls float up, Jesus lights a match. Boom. End Times.

Sammie,

I agree with you, I was thinking small this a.m. as in the U.S. Yes his statement is false no matter what.

You know what I hope is about to end? Scott Lively’s hate-filled, pseudo “ministry.” btw, the Professors in my fundie university would have flunked him for his abysmally poor understanding of prophecy.

Do not underestimate Scott Lively. He is not stupid, nor a “nutcase” in the sense of being unable to reason. According to a bio he previouly published, he is a lawyer and a doctor in theology.

For LGBT’s, he is a very dangerous man. Check out his book “The Pink Swastika.”

Actually, we’ve been covering Scott Lively for quite some time, and are very well aware of his writings.

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers. This story is a stark reminder that there are severe and damaging consequences when therapists try to ensure that boys will be boys.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.

Testing The Premise: Are Gays A Threat To Our Children?

Anti-gay activists often charge that gay men and women pose a threat to children. In this report, we explore the supposed connection between homosexuality and child sexual abuse, the conclusions reached by the most knowledgeable professionals in the field, and how anti-gay activists continue to ignore their findings. This has tremendous consequences, not just for gay men and women, but more importantly for the safety of all our children.

Straight From The Source: What the “Dutch Study” Really Says About Gay Couples

Anti-gay activists often cite the “Dutch Study” to claim that gay unions last only about 1½ years and that the these men have an average of eight additional partners per year outside of their steady relationship.
