The ten groups and individuals named to Scott Lively's list of top “pro-family champions” oppose gay rights.

Lively, the founder of Abiding Truth Ministries and the president of Defend the Family International, released his list Saturday on his group's website.

“I rate these groups and individuals based upon my own subjective 'Courage Index,'” Lively wrote. “In my estimation, the following groups/individuals have the most of it and have risked the most in defense of Biblical truth on the issue of homosexuality.”

At number one is Lively's own group, followed by: Americans For Truth About Homosexuality's Peter LaBarbera, Mass Resistance's Brian Camenker,'s Joseph Farah, Mission America's Linda Harvey, American Family Association's (AFA) Bryan Fischer, Liberty Counsel's Mathew Staver and Matt Barber, National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality's (NARTH) Dr. Joseph Nicolosi, Parents and Friends of Gays and Ex-Gays' (PFOX) Regina Griggs and Exodus Faith Ministries' Bishop E.W. Jackson.

Farah thanked Lively for the honor: “I am very grateful to be honored by Abiding Truth Ministries and to be included among such distinguished and courageous luminaries.”

The list is surprising given that Lively told The Boston Globe earlier this year that he had moved on from fighting the culture wars.

Lively has previously argued that gay rights are dangerous and has admitted that he traveled to Uganda to give testimony in favor of an anti-gay measure which includes a death penalty provision for people who repeatedly engage in gay sex and those who are HIV-positive.
