"Yes, I think I influenced the Russian law," Scott Lively, a Massachusetts-based Christian pastor who has preached widely against homosexuality in Russia and Eastern Europe, told NBC News in an interview published Wednesday.
Lively is facing a lawsuit in US federal court for allegedly persecuting homosexuals in Uganda and promoting a draft law in the African country that would have allowed for the death penalty for same-sex relations.
The US rights group that brought the lawsuit told NBC News that it is preparing a similar action against Lively over his promotion of anti-gay policies in Russia and Eastern Europe if evidence emerges that he was "an architect" of Russia's law on homosexuals.

In the 1990s, Lively was an instrumental figure in enacting local laws in a smattering of Oregon communities making it illegal to "promote, encourage or facilitate homosexuality," NBC News reported.
He traveled in Siberia and Russia's Far East in 2006 and 2007 warning audiences that homosexuality is evil.

The suit alleges that US Christian Right activist Scott Lively "through actions taken both within the United States and in Uganda has attempted to foment, and to a substantial degree has succeeding in fomenting, an atmosphere of harsh and frightening repression against LGBTI people in Uganda."
...
Lively is accused of directly collaborating with the Museveni and religious pressure groups in depriving LGBTI Ugandan citizens fundamental human rights based solely on their identity. Per the Alien Tort Statute, U.S. legal procedure allows foreign citizens to sue for violations of international law in U.S. federal courts.
In a statement, lead Center for Constitutional Rights attorney Pam Spees said: "We are gratified that the court recognized the persecution and the gravity of the danger faced by our clients as a result of Scott Lively's actions.
...
Lively is particularly notorious for his widely discredited Holocaust revisionist tome The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party (1995), in which he purports that the Nazi regime was composed almost entirely of gay men whose "savagery" made the Holocaust possible, comparing them to Roman Emperors. The respected African-American civil rights organisation Southern Poverty Law Center notes that Lively is directly responsible for the 2007 creation of the East Europe-based anti-gay group Watchmen on the Walls, and strongly advocated against a human rights bill in the country of Moldova in 2011. The founder of the Abiding Truth Ministries and director of the Redemption Gate Mission Society, Lively also toured Russia in 2007, advocating several measures that are now a part of that country's notorious anti-law statuteHe has accused millionaire George Soros and his "agents" of lobbying for the legalization of homosexuality, and in 2012, Lively asked God to destroy SPLC.

Last month, Holocaust revisionist Scott Lively came to visit Oklahoma City. Lively tells his fictitious story of how LGBT's are responsible for the Holocaust, to any desperate person who will listen.

Scott Lively is the director of the Abiding Truth Ministries located in Springfield Massachusetts. He is listed on the Southern Law Poverty Centers list of hate groups and Scott Lively is directly linked to pending legislation in Uganda that calls for severe punishment of homosexuals including long prison terms and death. He is currently being sued in Federal Court under the Alien Tort Statute for inciting the persecution of gay men and lesbians.
Needless to say, I had no idea what to expect-would we be in an auditorium filled with Oklahomans eager to learn Scott Lively's lesson plan on how to eradicate homosexuals along with the homosexual political agenda? Would there be protesters outside where I would have to explain why I would be going to listen to someone like this? And who attends this church where hate is invited to speak from the pulpit - the place that is considered holy in any church?
As we pulled into the parking lot on this overcast morning I noticed it was almost empty. I did not see one protestor, not one sign of disruption, and the police officer who was assigned to protect Scott Lively sauntered into the church eating a donut and talking on his cell. As we walked into the church we were welcomed and told the seminar was down the hall in the classroom. The classroom was very small with the chairs crammed into it. We took our seats and soon Scott Lively was at the podium and ready to teach his message of hate and intolerance. I looked around and counted about thirty seven people, including myself and my partner.
He began his talk by spending about forty-five minutes defending his actions in Uganda and trying to distance himself from the bill as it is currently presented. He then moved to the Southern Poverty Law Center and degraded that group for not having a definition of hate or hate group and talking about its "liberal private funding". Next was the Federal lawsuit which he flippantly dismissed as frivolous.
I have decided not to spend much effort repeating any of his message, as it seems Scott Lively's message is generally about Scott Lively and his ludicrous hate speech. Scott Lively is the consummate victim - just ask him!
During the seminar, Mr. Lively made the statement that Oklahoma was the "reddest of the red states" and that is when it hit me. This man has no power and nothing to say even in the Bible Belt of Oklahoma. I looked around and realized this is the best he could do in the "reddest of the red states". Thirty seven people primarily elderly church members, the pastor and his wife and a few young men who seemed to be struggling with their own sexuality. Oh yes, and one gay married couple!!
While it is slow in coming, change is happening. Truth, love and acceptance will win over hatred and lies. Even as I write this we have heard our sitting President endorse gay marriage and call for a repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act. Despite Scott Lively's efforts to degrade and demean LGBT persons with his ridiculous rhetoric, I left that seminar proud of the people of Oklahoma City who chose not to be a part of this message of hate and intolerance.
