Anti-gay activist Scott Lively managed to capture more than 19,000 votes in his race to become governor of Massachusetts, which, he wrote on his website yesterday, represents a “HUGE VICTORY” in that those 19,000 voters “have not bowed their knee to Baal.” Boasting in the third person that “he (by conservative accounts) handily won the two major debates in which he appeared” and “refused to engage in negative campaigning (except to criticize the other candidates for pandering, and for supporting abortion and sodomy),” Lively reported that he was...

Yesterday, we reported that Matt Barber’s conservative website BarbWire published an anti-gay column by Philip Stallings, a self-described “theonomist” who recently advocated for the “lawful execution” of gay people – or “sodomites.” Stallings’ column has disappeared, and today Barber tweeted at us, “Wow! Thanks for the tip. We obviously weren’t aware of that & find the position appalling. The answer is life in Christ.” Well. It’s good to have Matt Barber say he finds the idea of executing gay people appalling.... MORE >

Apparently twenty hours of air time per week does not offer enough opportunity for Glenn Beck to share thoughts about the state of his soul and so his network has now decided to start a "Conversations With Glenn" webseries. The owners of the Hitching Post Wedding Chapel in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho are ready and willing to go to jail rather than not be allowed to discriminate against gays ... just like the Apostle Paul. We are not quite sure how Bryan Fischer can argue that Annise Parker has obliterated the First Amendment since he has said repeatedly that the First... MORE >

Scott Lively declares that "I am sort of a Winston Churchill type of figure." Tea Party Nation is pretty sure that the Obama administration "wants Ebola here." Matt Barber says that gay activists "need to lighten up and take a step back": "Christians aren’t 'discriminating' against you because of your 'sexual orientation.' We just refuse to endorse sinful lifestyles, behaviors, messages or events. And guess what. It’s our constitutional right to do so. The First Amendment trumps your newfangled 'sexual... MORE >

The inclusion of anti-gay activist Scott Lively as an independent in Massachusetts’ gubernatorial race has certainly made things more interesting. For instance, the website iBerkshires reports on an exchange following Monday’s gubernatorial debate, in which Lively had said that “sexual perversion in schools” is a bigger problem than infrastructure decay, earning a rebuke from Republican Charlie Baker, who has an openly gay brother. After the debate, Lively accused the “very easily offended” Baker of taking a “cheap shot” at him. “I am... MORE >

David Lane declares that "until America restores the authority of the Bible in public education and the town square, our freedom hangs in the balance." Glenn Beck reveals that he was one approached about being a contestant on "Dancing With The Stars." Sadly, he said "no." Brian Camenker says that "Elizabeth Warren is just sort of an empty skirt." Richard Viguerie blasts that "the national leadership of the Republican Party for failing to nationalize the 2014 midterm election and missing a once in a lifetime opportunity to... MORE >
Scott Lively Doesn't Hate Gays, Just Wants Them To 'Enjoy The Blessings Of Being Able To Live A Heterosexual Life'
SUBMITTED BY: Miranda Blue, Tuesday 09/23/2014, 11:48am
In an interview with the American Family Association’s Sandy Rios this morning, globe-trotting anti-gay activist Scott Lively insisted that he doesn’t hate LGBT people or “want them to be harmed in any way” or “put in jail.” Instead, he said, “I want them to receive salvation in Jesus Christ, repent of their sins, and be able to enjoy the blessings of being able to live a heterosexual life and have a wife or a husband — depending on what their gender is — and the great blessings that come from doing things the God designed us to live....
