Anti-gay activist Scott Lively has
accused the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) of “deliberately trying to
incite murder” against him.
HRC has released a report titled
The Export of Hate, which seeks to shine a light on the
“network of American extremists who work tirelessly to undercut
LGBT people around the world at every turn.”
Lively, president of the
Massachusetts-based Abiding Truths Ministries, is among those
profiled in Export of Hate.
“There is a war going on in the
world,” Lively is quoted as saying. “There is a war that is
waging across the entire face of the globe. It's been waging in the
United States for decades. And it's been waging in Europe for
decades. It's a war between Christians and homosexuals.”
In response to the report's
publication, Lively said, “I believe they are now deliberately
trying to incite murder against me and every other person on their
“Because I am a Bible-believing
Christian I am not afraid of death. But neither am I volunteering
for martyrdom. As of today I am for the first time going to start
taking precautions against the possibility of being assassinated by
agents of the LGBT movement. For one thing, I will no longer
publicize my travel schedule in advance.”
Lively also demanded a retraction and a
public apology from HRC.
“STOP INCITING HATE BEFORE YOU GET
PEOPLE KILLED!!!!!,” Lively concluded.
