Lively Says Uganda Anti-Gay Bill Is "A Step In The Right Direction"
Alan Colmes interviewed Scott Lively on his radio program last night regarding this New York Times article examining Lively's influence on the introduction of a bill that would impose the death penalty for gays.
During the interview with Colmes, Lively continually insisted that he did not support the death penalty aspect of the bill, but called it a "step in the right directon":
Scott Lively, one of three evangelicals who went to Uganda at in 2009 to preach against gays, says he doesn’t support Uganda’s bill that would punish homosexuality by life imprisonment of death. Nevertheless, he said, on my radio show Monday night, it’s “a step in the right direction.” He refused to say that gays should get jail time, but said it should be treated as a we treat those who smoke marijuana. Yet, he refused to back off his “step in the right direction” comment.
The entire interview is fascinating and lasts more than twenty minutes - you can listen to it here:
