|Scott Lively, a homophobe for all seasons|
Lo and behold comes a long-time anti-LGBTQ activist by the name of Scott Lively to further illustrate this point. To the lucky who have never heard of him, Lively is an extreme homophobe. He wrote and published discredited book, The Pink Swastika, which accused gays of creating the Nazi party in Germany.
But Lively's biggest claim to infamy was going overseas to Uganda in 2009 with other religious right figures and railing against the LGBTQ community with such vitriol that Ugandan officials proposed the infamous "Kill the Gays" bill. If this bill had become law, people could have been legally executed in the country for being LGBTQ. Before it died in 2014, the part about execution was changed to long prison sentences.
