BOSTON - Springfield-based anti-gay minister Scott Lively announced he proudly marched in Sunday's St. Patrick's Day which many politicians skipped because parade organizers have banned gay, bisexual and lesbian groups.
Lively, a Shelburne Falls native who owns the Holy Grounds coffee shop in Springfield, is running as a independent candidate for governor.
...
"The LGBT bullies, including Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, are giving the St. Paddy's Day Parade organizers a hard time for keeping the parade a family-friendly event, but they are standing strong for family values and not bowing to intimidation," Lively said in a press release.
...
Lively said he was marching to represent all the voters who believe in "authentic marriage and the Biblical model of family."
Lively is no stranger to controversy. His crusade against the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community has taken him around the world and most recently to federal court. Based on his anti-gay talks in Uganda, where the anti-gay movement pushed a bill to passage that criminalizes homosexuality, Lively is accused of crimes against humanity in a lawsuit filed by human rights groups Sexual Minorities Uganda and New York-based Center for Constitutional Rights.

Opponent of the U.S. gay-rights movement and Massachusetts-based evangelical lawyer Scott Lively said: "I would rather the Ugandans had followed the Russian anti-propaganda model which reflects my philosophy of preventing the mainstreaming of homosexuality with the minimum limitation on personal liberties for those who choose to live discretely outside the mainstream."

Lively is president of the Massachusetts-based Abiding Truth Ministries, which is listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. In 2009, he spearheaded an infamous conference in Uganda that helped inspire the country's current homophobic fervor.

In January, a federal judge in Massachusetts allowed a lawsuit filed against Lively by the Center for Constitutional Rights on behalf of a Ugandan gay rights group to proceed. The suit contends that Lively, who has also written a book claiming the Nazi movement was inspired by homosexuals, has aided and abetted crimes against humanity by encouraging the persecution of Uganda's gay minority.
"That's about as ridiculous as it gets," Lively told the New York Times in 2011.

SPRINGFIELD - Whatever your views on Scott Lively's philosophies, it would be hard to argue he's cowed by controversy.
The anti-homosexuality, pro-life evangelist, who is currently being sued by a Ugandan civil rights group for crimes against humanity, has announced he's running for governor. Some of his platforms are predictable, given his previous public statements: stop public funding for abortion; repeal gay marriage and help homosexuals "repent;" and protect Second Amendment rights.
Lively, a lawyer who founded Abiding Truth Ministries in California, also has a few unexpected platforms, including protecting honey bees, according to his campaign literature.
...
Lively said he does not believe being the target of a 2012 lawsuit in federal court leveled by Sexual Minorities Uganda in connection with his anti-homosexuality campaign in that country will hurt his chances as a candidate.
"If anything, I think it will help me when people learn how ridiculous the lawsuit is," he said during an interview.
The lawsuit accuses Lively of fanning anti-gay flames in the East African country during an address to parliament members in 2009, and credits Lively with government-backed acts of violence against gays as a result of his rhetoric. The case is pending in U.S. District Court in Springfield.
Lively is running as an independent in the "bluest of the blue states," he said. He said he will be a viable option for conservatives whom, he said, have been abandoned by Republicans and have no connection with Democrats, to whom he refers as "Communists."

Springfield Pastor Forms Committee to Explore Run For Governor
Pastor Scott Lively of Springfield today announced the formation of a committee to explore the possibility of a run for the governorship of Massachusetts. A fifth generation Bay Stater, born and raised in the Village of Shelburne Falls, Pastor Lively was for many years a Christian missionary and social activist in various parts of the world, based primarily in Oregon and California. In 2008, following a year-long speaking tour through eight countries of the former Soviet Union, he and his wife Anne moved back to Massachusetts to start a mission to the poor and disadvantaged in inner-city Springfield. They bought a home in the heart of the troubled McNight neighborhood and opened a church and ministry center called Holy Grounds Coffee House, strategically located on State Street between the Downtown and Mason Square areas, to serve the homeless and street populations of the city. www.redemptiongate.org
Pastor Lively has successfully organized a large network of Christians from a variety of local churches who now regularly cooperate together to carry on inner-city outreach and evangelism through annual events such as the March For Jesus and Family Day and through a full schedule of daily and weekly activities based at Holy Grounds Coffee House. The mission's most visible impact on the city has been its TRUST JESUS Campaign, which encourages all the Christians of the area to unify around that simple Gospel message and display it publicly. Through these efforts many lives in inner-city Springfield have been changed for the better and a return to biblical values is being recognized by an increasing number of residents as the only real solution to Springfield's problems.
On September 30th of this year Pastor Lively turned over the day-to-day management of the mission to Pastor C.S. Cooley, senior pastor at United Temple Church of God in Christ and a highly respected leader in the community. Pastor Lively remains the pastor of the Coffee House Church, which holds services at Holy Grounds on Sunday afternoons, and will continue to serve as a member of the board of Redemption Gate Mission Society, the umbrella organization over the various ministries at the mission.
On October 1st, Pastor Lively launched a new effort called the King Josiah Project to begin challenging movements and ideologies in Massachusetts which he perceives as being most responsible for the moral and economic degeneration of Springfield and the state. These include in order of destructiveness: The abortion industry, the homosexual movement, the public education system, corrupt elements in state government, and a broken social welfare system that breeds dependency instead of rebuilding lives. The King Josiah Project is being conducted under the auspices of Abiding Truth Ministries, a 501(c)(3) religious non-profit organization founded by Pastor Lively in 1997 to promote and defend biblical values in society. As he has done in other states and nations for more than 20 years, Pastor Lively will engage in social activism in Springfield and around the state to rally Christians and other social conservatives to oppose these social ills and to attempt to cure them through a return to biblical values. www.defendthefamily.com
If, in the course of these efforts, his exploratory committee determines that a run for governor would complement the larger purpose of turning Massachusetts back to God, Pastor Lively will enter the race to win the governorship.
Pastor Lively (54) is fully qualified to serve as governor were he to be elected. An attorney as well as a pastor, he graduated magna cum laude from Trinity Law School in Santa Ana, California, and was managing partner of his own successful law firm in Southern California, with a flawless personal record before the state bar.
While running the for-profit firm he also founded the Pro-Family Law Center, a public interest law firm specializing in constitutional law, taking his most significant case, Good News Employee Association v. Hicks all the way to the Federal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, where he argued the First Amendment before a three judge panel held in special session at Stanford University.
Pastor Lively holds a Certificaté in International Human Rights from the Institute of International Human Rights in Strasburg, France, and is the author of the Riga Declaration on Religious Freedom, Family Values and Human Rights (2006). http://www.defendthefamily.com/intl/
Pastor Lively is an internationally recognized authority on biblical values in public policy, serving as an educator, trainer and consultant to church, community and government leaders in more than 30 countries, and as a media figure in more than 700 radio and television interviews here at home. He is known as the "Father of the Ugandan Pro-Family Movement" for his work in that country, and his efforts in Russia, Eastern Europe and the Baltics have strengthened both the Christian church and social resistance to the homosexualization of those regions.
Pastor Lively holds a Doctor of Theology degree from the School of Bible Theology of the Pentecostal Assemblies of God, studying directly with PAGA founder Dr. Richard Anderson, who went home to be with the Lord October 11, 2012 after 79 years of active ministry.
...
In 2009, Pastor Lively's doctoral thesis was revised and published in book form under the title Redeeming the Rainbow: A Christian Response to the "Gay" Agenda, which may be downloaded in PDF form at http://www.defendthefamily.com/rtr/.
Pastor Lively is the author of four other books, including The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party which is in its fourth edition and has been translated into five languages. A fifth edition is in progress, a sample of which may be viewed at http://www.scottlively.net/tps/tps1.pdf. He is the author of countless articles, editorials and essays, many of which are published online at defendthefamily.com and/or www.ScottLively.net.
Pastor Lively, the oldest of six children in a Roman Catholic family, achieved all of these accomplishments despite tremendous hardship and tumult in his early life: becoming homeless and on his own at the age of sixteen after his father's steadily deteriorating mental health left the family destitute; falling into alcoholism and drug addiction from the age of twelve; and finally drifting around the United States as a transient in his late teens and early twenties, sleeping under bridges and begging spare change to survive. He accepted Jesus Christ as Savior in prayer in 1986 and was instantaneously completely healed. With this background, Pastor Lively has a unique perspective, not just on social justice and the needs of the disadvantaged and mentally ill, but also the amazing transformative power of Christianity.
