In an interview last month with Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality, Scott Lively of Defend the Family International said that proponents of “the homosexual agenda” are aiming for “the destruction of Christian civilization,” and that the gay rights movement is a sign of “the End of the Age.” Prior to discussing the “evil” gay rights movement, Lively told LaBarbera that kids should use the phrase “that’s so gay” to connote the “disgusting nature of homosexuality,” arguing that children are using the derogatory phrase “simply naturally” because they know that “they’re just talking about sodomy, and it’s something that’s ugly and should be attached to things that are unpleasant and wrong.”
LaBarbera: I know a lot of homosexuals want to ban the phrase “that’s so gay,” which a lot of kids use, and you know what, why should the word “gay” only be attached—the homosexual activists stole the word “gay,” it didn’t used to mean what it means today, it didn’t used to mean homosexuality, why should it only be—why should it now be allowed to be only used in a positive light?
Lively: The adoption of the word “gay” to replace “homosexual” was an attempt to sanitize homosexuality in the common vocabulary, and simply the nature, the disgusting nature of homosexuality has dirtied up the world. So now, simply naturally, children have started using this phrase “that’s so gay” essentially recognizing that they’re just talking about sodomy, and it’s something that’s ugly and should be attached to things that are unpleasant and wrong.
Lively: We’ve never faced in the history of Christianity, we have really never faced as much as a threat as we do right now from the homosexual agenda, and it really seems obvious to those who have been on the frontlines who have had that overview picture of what’s happening in society at large that this issue, somehow, seems to be the issue of the End of the Age.
Lively: I stand against the movement that they have created as a truly evil institution that’s goal, that’s goal, is the destruction of Christian civilization.
