Lively Bounced From Panel at “Yellow Harvard”

Springfield pastor Scott Lively, an internationally known anti-gay activist who has supported draconian laws against homosexuality in Uganda and elsewhere, is running for governor of Massachusetts—running on a mission to do battle with the dark gods of liberalism in a state he regards as LGBT-coddling and socialist [“It Would Take a Miracle,” January 7, 2014,].

Last week Lively e-mailed us that he had been un-invited to appear on a panel of gubernatorial candidates at Harvard Law School. The reason given was that a case alleging that Lively had committed crimes against humanity, brought by gay activists from Uganda and now pending in federal court in Springfield, would be a “distraction.” But Lively, who can always be depended on to react in character, says he sees through the excuse.

“I’m turning ‘Yellow’ Harvard’s lemon into lemonade,” he declares, “and taking this as another teaching opportunity to offer simple, plain truth about the true nature of ‘gay’ culture and its homo-fascist agenda.

“This is my definition of the term:

“Homo-Fascism is a form of extreme left-wing radicalism which attempts to establish rigid totalitarian controls over public discussions and policies addressing sexual morality, and to punish or suppress all disapproval of homosexuality and related sexual behaviors.’”

“If you cross the ‘gays,’” adds the crusader, “they try to destroy you! And if you don’t back down in the face of relentless persecution, they eventually sue you for ‘Crimes Against Humanity.’

“My guess is this won’t be the last time we see homo-fascism influencing the 2014 gubernatorial race in Massachusetts.”

At press time we had not received a return call from a public affairs officer at Harvard Law School verifying that Lively had been excluded from such an event.• —SK
