Pastor Scott Lively, On Trial For Crimes Against Humanity, Running For Governor

Post image for Pastor Scott Lively, On Trial For Crimes Against Humanity, Running For Governor

Scott Lively, known for his virulent homophobia, has officially announced he is running to be the next governor of Massachusetts, as an independent. The Christian evangelical pastor and founder of an organization certified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as an active anti-gay hate group, is facing judgment in a federal court in a unique “crimes against humanity” case for his “work” in Uganda, which many say led to the drafting on the infamous “Kill The Gays” bill.

“Qualified. Experienced. Electable,” is his campaign motto, according to an article published last night at MassLive, a local Massachusetts news site.

Publicly available campaign finance records show he has about $3,000 in his coffers, including a $2,000 loan to himself.

“The people of Massachusetts need a candidate who can clearly and unapologetically articulate Biblical values without fear or compromise,” his campaign literature states. “They need a candidate who will tell the simple truth that abortion is murder, and homosexuality is condemned by God (but that Jesus forgives those who repent).”

He cites the greatest threat to the citizenry as the “Godless ideology of Cultural Marxism, better known as the ‘progressive movement.’”

If Lively has a campaign website, it seems impossible to find. His Scott Lively Ministries blog has no recent announcement of his campaign.

The most latest posts include one from December 6, asking a court to dismiss the case against him, which he calls, “harassment, pure and simple.” The other is titled: “‘Gay Marriage’ as a Sign of the End Times.”

Lively does have a Facebook page, “Scott Lively For Governor of Massachusetts 2014.” It has five “likes.”

No religious pastor should be able to run for public office. They are biased in their worldview and condemn or hate those who aren't like them. Freedom of religion is a personal right not a public office right. Secularism is what the founding fathers envisioned.

I don't think there should ever be a ban of who can run and who can't (other than citizens in good standing; taxes paid, laws obey, etc). This man is incapable of serving two masters (his angry god and the people of Massachusetts). He shouldn't run. But I think some religious serve in a secular capacity, and leave their religious viewpoints where they belong (at home or place of worship).

BTW he also reminds me of the westboro baptists. Dont let anyone fool you re them and Black people – per a book – "adicted to hate" by Nate Phelps who left this nuthouse decades ago, Black people inside the nuthouse are referred to as DNs first word is Damn, you know the others.

BTW most of the nut jobs of the westboro KKKLan are lawyers so the copyright for the book got wrecked but ts free on the web. as a pdf

Maybe but I've never met a preacher politician who didnt let hie religiosity affect his politics…not one.

In Massachusetts? He'll be lucky to get 100 votes- AND I WILL MAKE SURE TO GO TO EVERY ONE OF HIS APPEARANCES IN PROTEST OF HIS POLICY ON HOMOSEXUALITY

Scott also seems to have a spelling problem. His FB page says he running as an Indidependant (not Independent) for Govenor. There's nothing written on the page by Scott, his campaign or anyone else, except for some hostile comments from his opponents. Maybe the FB site is a spoof. If not, it needs a lot of work.

Did they ever find this POS guilty for crimes against humanity?
