Until last year, Scott Lively was perhaps best known as the vehemently anti-gay activist most responsible for the spreading, via his book “The Pink Swastika,” the right-wing claim that Adolf Hitler and those who ran his Nazi apparatus were all gay.
That legacy has been overshadowed a bit recently, thanks to Lively’s involvement in Uganda and its infamous “kill the gays” bill. Lively insists that he does not support the legislation’s death penalty provision, but has called the effort to criminalize homosexuality “a step in the right direction.”
With the murder of Ugandan gay activist David Kato last month, Lively’s involvement in the country has once again come under scrutiny and yesterday Lively finally lashed out, claiming that “Uganda is being murdered” by “lavender Marxists” intent on destroying Christianity:
The murderers are the lavender Marxists, the now-global network of sexual revolutionaries bent on remaking the entire world in their own perverted image, whose juggernaut has toppled even once mighty Britain, crushing under their lavender boots after eight centuries the symbol of its Christian power: the Magna Charta, whose first principle had proclaimed “The English church must be free!” These revolutionists of Sodom, who march triumphantly through all the major cities of the western world to flaunt their defeat of moral law, and who hold both Hollywood and the heart of America’s president in their iron grip: These very same zealots have fixed their malevolent gaze on Christian Uganda.
There is indeed evil in Uganda today, but it is not the reaction of Christian and Moslem citizens to the rape of their culture. It is the pink-gloved hand of western powers that are cutting the throat of Africa’s most God-fearing country, and one of the world‘s most promising Christian democracies.
