7. Scott Lively? No shit? We ran him out of Oregon years ago.

He was a supporter and lead advocate for a whole bunch of nasty anti-LGBT ballot measures here, along with noted gay-hater Lon Mabon. I really can't understand how guys like that spend their whole adult lives working against their fellow humans. Haters gotta hate, I guess.

Okay, that's not true. I do know.

Because he gets paid to do it.

I hope my brothers and sisters in Massachusetts, regardless of sexual orientation, show him the same hospitality.

Just read the Wikipedia entry on this guy. Unbelievable. Except I saw it for myself, right up front.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scott_Lively

Some choice snips for those who don't wanna read the whole WikiLink:

<snip>Along with Kevin E. Abrams, he co-authored the book The Pink Swastika, which states in the preface that "homosexuals are the true inventors of Nazism and the guiding force behind many Nazi atrocities."</snip>

<snip>In 1991, Lively assaulted Catherine Stauffer, throwing her against a wall and dragging her across the floor of a Portland church, at an Oregon Citizens Alliance (OCA) event she had been trying to film.[14] Stauffer received a judgment of over $31,000 against Lively and the OCA in 1992. (note: the OCA was an anti-gay hate group active in Oregon from the nineties through the mid-2000's.)</snip>

<snip>In March 2010, Lively wrote:
In my view, homosexuality (indeed all sex outside of marriage) should be actively discouraged by society -- but only as aggressively as necessary to prevent the mainstreaming of alternative sexual lifestyles, and with concern for the preservation of the liberties of those who desire to keep their personal lifestyles private. Marriage-based culture served humanity very favorably during the centuries when homosexuality was disapproved but tolerated as a sub-culture in America, England and elsewhere. It has obviously not fared well in the decades since the so-called sexual revolution kicked open Pandora’s Box and unleashed both rampant heterosexual promiscuity and "Gay Pride" on the world.

In March of this year I had the privilege of addressing members of the Ugandan parliament in their national assembly hall when the anti-homosexuality law was just being considered. I urged them to pattern their bill on some American laws regarding alcoholism and drug abuse. I cited my own pre-Christian experience being arrested for drunk driving. I was given and chose the option of therapy which turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. I also cited the policy in some U.S. jurisdictions regarding marijuana. Criminalization of the drug prevents its users from promoting it, and discourages non-users from starting, even while the law itself is very lightly enforced, if at all.</snip>

And they are honoring this evil bastard??

Perspective from the Beaver State, where he's tried unsuccessfully to run this bullshit before.

K & R
