Gay rights foe Scott Lively has issued
a wake up call to Christians.
Lively, who has 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, recently vowed to tone down his
anti-gay rhetoric and focus his Massachusetts-based ministry on
helping the downtrodden.
Yet, it seems he couldn't just sit on
the sidelines as gay people won the war against Christian
“We need to stand firmly and
unapologetically on the hard truth that homosexuality is not a
benign, morally neutral social phenomenon. It is an insidious and
contagious form of sexual perversion condemned by God as an
abomination. I cringe even writing these words because I know the
wrath I am inviting on myself. Still, someone needs to say this
boldly and publicly because it is the truth, and only the truth can
set us free of the political correctness that has imprisoned us until
now,” Lively wrote in an op-ed published on World
“The homosexual agenda represents an
existential threat to Christian civilization and we're in the final
phase of the war, losing badly. It all hinges upon you, Christian
reader. Either get into the game in earnest, immediately, or wave
goodbye,” he warned.
My God noted that Lively has ratcheted up his anti-gay rhetoric
ahead of being “honored” for his “battle against homofascism”
at an Illinois banquet next month sponsored by Americans for Truth
About Homosexuality President Peter LaBarbera.
