There are some people in this world that will refuse to accept homosexuals no matter what and Pastor Scott Lively is one of those people. Lively traveled overseas this year to help the country of Uganda pass a bill called the “Anti-Homosexuality Act,” or as it is known stateside, the “Kill the Gays,” bill.
It was proposed in the original bill that anyone caught engaging in homosexual acts would be executed. This wall all part of Lively’s plan to eradicate gays from the country of Uganda. Back in the states, Lively was widely ignored and was swept under the rug.
In recent months, he has softened his bill to remove the death clause and simply states that gays will be sentenced to life in prison. Lively has since been accused of crimes against humanity in an effort to get him back to the states so he can own up to attempting genocide in another country.
Though it would seem smart that someone that is on trial for crimes against humanity might lay low and try to stay out of the public spotlight, Lively has instead used his prominence to get even more attention and spread as much homophobic material as possible.
The aim of the trial is to keep Lively here in the United States where he can be more closely monitored and watched and where he can do far less damage. In a country like Uganda that is looking for structure and even some form of help, Lively is a very dangerous force.
