In July 2012, the human rights groups Sexual Minorities Uganda filed a lawsuit against notorious anti-gay activist Scott Lively in the US District Court in Springfield, Mass. The suit alleges that Lively's actions in Uganda, including encouraging development and passage of an anti-gay law condemning gays to punishments up to life imprisonment, is a "crime against humanity."
Lively, represented by anti-gay legal group Liberty Counsel, has filed multiple motions over the past two years, seeking to get the case dismissed, or stayed. Most recently, he appealed to the First Circuit Court of Appeals, seeking to have the case dismissed. The court last week denied Lively's petition, meaning he will have to stand trial in the Springfield Federal District Court.
The case was brought under the Alien Tort Statute, a US law which provides federal jurisdiction for "any civil action by an alien, for a tort only, committed in violation of the law of nations or a treat of the United States."
According to Wikipedia, "A tort, in common law jurisdictions, is a civil wrong that unfairly causes someone else to suffer loss or harm resulting in legal liability for the person who commits the tortious act, called a tortfeasor."
According to the filing by the Ugandan rights group, the case "…is brought against defendant Scott Lively, a U.S.-based attorney, author, evangelical minister and self-described world-leading expert on the "gay movement," for the decade-long campaign he has waged, in agreement and coordination with his Ugandan counterparts, to persecute persons on the basis of their gender and/or sexual orientation and gender identity."
Deathandtaxesmag.com describes Uganda's Anti-Homosexuality Act, popularly known as the "Kill the Gays" bill, as "largely the product of a workshop held in Uganda by Lively and two other American anti-gay activists, focused on 'how to make gay people straight, how gay men often sodomized teenage boys and how 'the gay movement is an evil institution' whose goal is 'to defeat the marriage-based society and replace it with a culture of sexual promiscuity.'"
Lively is considered among the worst anti-gay activists in the US and continues to be active in Africa, and notably in Russia, promoting discriminatory and often life-threatening laws aimed at the LGBT communities in those countries.

Then again, most of us aren't notorious bigot Pastor Scott Lively, whose life work seems to be to ask the question: "How can I make gay people miserable across the world?"

In the United States Lively's homophobic messages are largely ignored, and in recent years he has had to endure various setbacks at the state and federal level as equality makes historic gains. Undeterred, Lively has sought out foreign lands where his particular brand of ruthless anti-gay ideas are more accepted. In Uganda, he found a home away from home. During a Christian "workshop" in the African nation he managed to become one of the principal architects behind some of the most retrograde anti-gay legislation on the planet.

Officially titled the "Anti-Homosexuality Act" and more commonly known as the "Kill the Gays" bill, Lively's vision was nothing less than a roadmap for the total persecution and eradication of homosexuals from Uganda. In Lively's original design, anyone caught engaging in homosexuality would be executed. A newer bill softened that stance slightly after worldwide condemnation - in the latest version, homosexuals would only be sentenced to life in prison.
Unfortunately for Lively, orchestrating genocide in another country is kind of frowned upon, and in 2012 a lawsuit was filed against Lively in federal court in Massachusetts for crimes against humanity. This week, the First Circuit Court of Appeals denied Lively's final request to have it dismissed because, well, the whole genocide thing.
During his lengthy appeals process, one would think that Lively would lay low and avoid saying anything that suggests he isn't at all sorry for helping Uganda try to kill its gay population. Instead, Lively has continued to double down on his efforts to spread as much homophobia as possible. It's gotten so bad that the watchdog group Human Rights Campaign dedicated September to chronicle the various ways Lively and his anti-gay ministry were "exporters of hate."
Scott Lively is the head of Abiding Truths Ministry in Springfield, Massachusetts and is known around the world for his notorious work successfully advocating for anti-LGBT laws in Uganda that could send LGBT people to prison for life. In fact, Lively has traveled the world over presenting himself as an expert on LGBT issues, urging lawmakers to crack down on LGBT rights and the right of free expression.
In 2007, Lively wrote in "Letter to the Russian People," "Homosexuality is a personality disorder that involves various often dangerous sexual addictions and aggressive anti-social impulses."
And this week, while he awaited his fate at his crimes against humanity trial, Lively told Trunews that homosexuality should be considered "more offensive" than mass killings, because gay people caused the Great Flood that wiped out the human race (technically, God did, and technically there is no evidence of that actually occurring, but who's counting?).
"Homosexuality is not just another sin," he said according to Right Wing Watch, "it is the sin that defines rebellion against God, the outer edge of rebellion against God and it is the harbinger of God's wrath, that's why the Scripture gives the warning, 'as in the days of Noah.'"
In a way it makes sense that Lively would be adamant that homosexuality was worse than mass murder, considering that the mass murder of gay people is what he stands accused of trying to achieve.
Lively currently lives in Springfield, Massachusetts, and hopefully soon will have a permanent residency behind bars.

Pastor Scott Lively of Springfield today announced the formation of a committee to explore the possibility of a run for the governorship of Massachusetts. [ send this article to a friend ]

PRESS RELEASE For Immediate Release, November 14, 2012 Contact: Pastor Scott Lively, 413-250-0984 sdllaw@gmail.com
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.
