Target: Pastor Scott Lively
Goal: Denounce Scott Lively for crafting a Ugandan law that sentences homosexuals to death
A federal lawsuit has been filed in the state of Masachusetts against Pastor Scott Lively for crafting a Ugandan law that supports the genocide of homosexuals. The law has since been toned down–homosexuals are now sentenced to prison for life. Despite being a pastor, Lively is being tried for crimes against humanity, as this new law severely discriminates against those who are homosexual. This man has been called an exporter of hate by human rights organizations. Lively should be publicly denounced and punished for supporting the mass murder of a group of people.
Once an alcoholic and homeless man, Lively transformed himself into a pastor, where he preached radical and destructive policies. He joined the Oregon Citizens Alliance, an organization that opposed abortion and the gay rights movement. The organization, along with the Christian Coalition, crafted a law preventing the government from offering protection or any rights to homosexuals in Oregon and that would force schools to teach children that such people were wrong and unnatural. In the United States, this law was not received well, nor did it pass. As a result, both Lively and the organizations he worked for were compared to the Nazis. In response, Lively threw himself into researching the Third Reich, and announced that homosexuals were responsible for the Holocaust.
When Lively continued to receive negative press in the United States, he turned to foreign countries that knew very little about homosexuality. There, he convinced the Ugandan people of the ‘horrors’ that came with this sexual orientation. He told them that homosexuals were sneaking into their homes and stealing their children. He even stated that homosexuals were involved in the Rwandan genocide.
This man is spewing lies and hate speech. He is not promoting equality and he wants a whole group of people to be killed simply for their sexual orientation. Publicly denounce this man, and support his prosecution in the coming federal trial by signing this petition.
Dear Pastor Lively,
Your actions against homosexuality are violent, discriminatory, and based on lies. Sexual orientation has nothing to do with theft or child abuse, nor are homosexuals responsible for mass murder. You’ve played a disturbing role in crafting the Ugandan law that sentenced homosexuals to death, an action that calls for genocide of a group of people.
Despite receiving harsh backlash for your words and actions, you still have not seen reason. You still continue to push forth your discriminatory views on homosexuals, and you consider them inferior to other human beings. As a pastor you are supposed to be a caring and compassionate individual. I am writing to denounce you for your views, and I hope the federal courts convict you of crimes against humanity.
