If you need a simplified way to explain the impact of Scott Lively's homophobia in Uganda as well as the case against him, then thiscomic from Andy Warner at the Center for Constitutional Rights explains it more than adequately. Below are just a few images:
Lively: Anti-Gay 'Revolution' Needed To Stop Demonic 'Conspiracy' To 'Homosexualize The World'- Scott Lively is getting just a little bit morbid about the need to stop lgbt equality. Saying that anti-gay activists must be ready to “give up our lives if necessary" is a bit much. And it's gets really spooky when you realize that if some folks would be willing to die, others will take it to the other extreme and will be willing to kill if given the right encouragement.
This video of Southern Baptist Robert Jeffress, flanked by Family Research Council president Tony Perkins and pastor Rafael Cruz, the father of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz at a National Religious Broadcasters convention press conference underlines a point I made earlier this week about the religious right fetish for being persecuted.
Not only is Jeffress' comments totally ridiculous but they take on a special degree of inanity when one realizes that anti-gay pastors, spokespeople, and organizations threw out the SAME horror stories when lgbt-inclusive hate crimes legislation was passed.
And to date, no pastor has been arrested in America for speaking out against homosexuality in the pulpit. The sad thing is that people like Jeffress will continue to spin the same false predictions and gullible folks will continue to believe them.
