I couldn’t be happier typing that title, “Scott Lively on Trial for Crimes Against Humanity.” Well, I would be happier if the title were, “Scott Lively Jailed for Crimes Against Humanity.” But that may come in time. Even if he does no time, my hope is that the publicity will reveal just how hateful and ridiculous he is.
For those of you who may not know, Scott Lively is a fear monger who lives in my city and has been spreading his hatred around the world. The Center for Constitutional Rights filed a federal suit against him in March of 2012 on behalf of Sexual Minorities Uganda, a non-profit umbrella organization for LGBT advocacy groups in Uganda. “The suit alleges that Lively’s involvement in anti-gay efforts in Uganda, including his active participation in the formulation of anti-gay legislation and policies aimed at revoking fundamental rights from LGBT persons constitutes persecution. This is the first known Alien Tort Statute (ATS) case seeking accountability for persecution on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.”
What does that mean exactly? Well, over the past decade, Scott Lively has traveled to Uganda, and coordinated with various people in Uganda, to spread his lies and hatred to people who already live in fear every day of their lives. He has spread fear that gays use pornography to recruit children and participate in the rape of children. I guess he missed the repeated studies and statistics that show that PEDOPHILES rape children, not homosexuals. His work has resulted in the compilation of a list of gays and lesbians, to be used for pubic outings in the media and publication of their names, photos, and contact information. This has led to persecution, discrimination, arrests, deaths, and even denial of healthcare. Lively has gone so far as to publish books that claim gays are responsible for the Holocaust, the Spanish Inquisition, the French ‘Reign of Terror,” South African Aparthied, two hundred years of slavery in America, the breakdown of Christianity in America, and even the genocide in Rwanda.
Even my eleven-year-old daughter is dumbfounded by the rantings of this lunatic. One can only wonder just what atrocities he has suffered, or how much he hates himself, or how much he is suppressing in himself, to create such a deep level of hatred against a group of individuals that merely want to have the freedom to live their lives the way they see fit – precisely, by the way, what our system here in America has afforded Scott Lively.
