Scott Lively

Hate monger, maniac, and anti-gay bigot, Scott Lively, was named in the Human Rights Campaign’s Export of Hate report. HRC correctly notes that “Lively has dedicated his life to the spreading of anti-LGBT hate and bigotry. He is notorious for traveling around the world, advocating for harsh and bloody punishments for LGBT people. He has presented himself as an expert on LGBT issues, urging lawmakers to crack down on LGBT rights and the right of free expression.”

Lively’s reaction was to claim that HRC was targeting him for murder. Yes, “murder” he wrote. Purveyors of bat-shit lack critical self-censorship capabilities. They provide evidence that neural plasticity is not always a good thing. Lively’s addled brain has made connections that were never intended by nature. Now Lively writes:

In the few days since the Human Rights Campaign put out its thinly
veiled contract on me and other America pro-family activists I have
already received two death threats.

“Contract?” My decoder ring must be malfunctioning because I never received an encrypted message that translated to any such thing. The irony here is that Lively has blood on his hands from his activities in Uganda, Russia and Eastern Europe. His Abiding Truth Ministries is designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

So now Lively gets a couple of obnoxious emails (far less toxic than his anti-gay invective) and he is receiving “death threats.” One does claim the desire to shove a rat down Lively’s throat. The other is a rambling stream of dislike for Mr. Lively. Personally, I might get off on seeing a drag queen cutting off Lively’s phallus but that’s not a death threat. Nor, for that matter, am I an “agent” of the Human Rights Campaign.

I find it even more ironic that Lively asserts that homosexuality is a destructive personality disorder. My shrink would call that “projection.” Lively actually believes that he is a soldier in a war raging between gays and Christians. He, of course, believes that he is on God’s side. Tell that to some poor kid imprisoned in Uganda or beaten up by thugs (with the tacit consent of authorities) in Russia.

Lively’s overseas misadventures are the result of frustration; He has no traction in North America. He clearly has a vivid imagination when it comes to gay people. I can only hope that he is cringing in fear in a closet somewhere. I suspect that he believes his own BS.
