A long-time proponent of criminalizing homosexuality, Dr. Scott Lively, president of Abiding Truth Ministries (classified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group), released a statement today praising the intent of Uganda’s anti-gay bill, and commending the courage of the Ugandan people.
Let me be absolutely clear. I do not support the proposed anti-homosexuality law as written. It does not emphasize rehabilitation over punishment and the punishment that it calls for is unacceptably harsh. However, if the offending sections were sufficiently modified, the proposed law would represent an encouraging step in the right direction. As one of the first laws of this century to recognize that the destructiveness of the “gay” agenda warrants opposition by government, it would deserve support from Christian believers and other advocates of marriage-based culture around the world.
As has been reported on Rachel Maddow and throughout the gay/progressive blogosphere, Lively wielded considerable influence in the creation of the anti-gay bill, having testified before Ugandan leaders earlier this year. Earlier this week Rachel Maddow aired some pretty damning audio of Lively speaking in Uganda:
In a recent interview with LifeSiteNews, Lively describes the impetus for the bill as “… external interference from European and American gay activists attempting to do in Uganda what they’ve done around the world – homosexualize that society,” and cites a fear that homosexuals are entering their country and abusing boys on the streets.
So in Lively’s reality we are to blame for the anti-gay law in Uganda. Just as we were to blame during the holocaust.

Below, some more Lively video prior to his testifying against a transgender hate crimes bill in Massachusetts, where he proceeds to blame us (in part) for the inevitable infrastructure collapse of the United States… roads, bridges that sort of thing. Just incredible.
