Who Is Scott Lively? The Massachusetts Governor Candidate’s Views Are Really Out There
https://www.bustle.com/p/who-is-scott-l ... re-9044774

At the Republican Party's convention in Massachusetts, an author who has previously called for the criminalization of homosexuality and abortion gained enough support to appear on a GOP ballot for the Massachusetts gubernatorial primaries. Scott Lively, who thinks gay Nazis carried out the Holocaust, will challenge incumbent Gov. Charlie Baker in Massachusetts' September primary.

In 1995, Lively wrote a book called The Pink Swastika, in which he claimed that the Nazi Party in Germany had been controlled by "militaristic" gay men. Lively has openly called for the criminalization of homosexuality, and in 2009, the persecution of LGBTQ people in Uganda escalated after Lively spoke at a conference there. Lively is also staunchly anti-abortion, and has called for the criminalization of that as well.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, who argued that Lively's campaign website contains anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant rhetoric, Lively received 626 votes from convention delegates last week, which is twice as many as he needed to appear on the ballot alongside Baker. This is not the first time Lively has attempted to run for governor; in 2014, he ran unsuccessfully as an independent candidate, but lost the election to Baker after winning roughly 1 percent of the vote.

According to Newsweek, Lively also founded an anti-LGBT organization called Abiding Truth Ministries, which the SPLC has listed as a hate group. On its "Defend the Family" website, Abiding Truth Ministries argues that it wants to "promote and defend the Biblical view of marriage and family." Lively also founded an international evangelical ministry in Latvia, Watchmen on the Walls, whose leaders have since called for conversion therapy.

Lively has spent decades advocating for the global criminalization of homosexuality. In Uganda, the rhetoric he used in his speech in 2009 seemed to influence the "Kill the Gays" legislation that subsequently arose. In Russia, Lively played a significant role in the development of the country's "gay propaganda law."

A dumb but dangerous bigot. His book "The Pink Swastika" claims the Nazi party was controlled and run primarily by homosexuals. (Yes, there were a handful of closeted homosexuals in the Nazi hierarchy, because ... they're everywhere. Just as yes, there were Jews in the Communist party. :roll: But meanwhile, as is well known, the Nazis probably killed at least 100,000 homosexuals in concentration camps, subjected them to medical experiments including castration, and forced them to wear the pink triangle as an ID badge.)

He's sponsored laws in Russia and Uganda that put horrid penalties (including in Uganda ... death) on homosexual behavior.

And, he's now going to be in the Rethug primary for governor in Mass.
