    Regardless, we should all contact the Home Office letting Theresa May know that this hatemonger should be barred from entering the UK. His support of the Ugandan kill the gays bill is more than sufficient evidence to deny him entry. StonewallUK should bloody well do something about it. This man’s hate mongering is totally incompatible with British values and way of life. He must be barred from coming here.

    1. YES !

      And a fantisist too :

      Mr Lively co-authored the book, The Pink Swastika, which says in its introduction: “homosexuals [are] the true inventors of Nazism and the guiding force behind many Nazi atrocities”, and he is the former state director for California for the American Family Association.

        Quite right Laurie. We MUST let the Home Office know NOW. This man is dangerous and a threat to civilised society. We’ve already banned that other vile disgusting bigot, Michael Savage who espouses similar sentiments towards gay people. Lively MUST be banned too.

        Can Protestants get papal knighthoods ?

  2. YES !

    He is a fantisist too :

  3. Oh dear, could have been divine intervention there Scott, or maybe satanic intervention eh?

      Definitely an Act of God.

  4. Well played, Oxford. Well played.

  5. Due to an “administrative error”, the Oxford Union accidentally booked him on a flight to Somalia. It’s extraordinary how these things happen.

  6. Why was this man let in the country?! We’ve banned people for far less!

  7. To see some of the utter tripe this excuse for christianity trots out, see:

    …and yes, would the UK benefit from having this homophobic bigot on our shores? I think not!

    1. …and just to top it off, here’s a copy of his demand to be removed from the hate list of the Southern Poverty Law Center…

      Perhaps this is the proof that could be usefully forwarded to Theresa May for consideration….

  8. Who in their right mind would have invited him to something like this in the first place? This guy isn’t your garden-variety bigot – he’s one of the driving forces behind the anti-gay pogroms raging in Africa right now and the author of what’s basically a kind of anti-gay version of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. This is a person who would quite literally have us all rounded up and put to death if it were in his power to do so. What possible place does a person like that have in any debate?

  9. Looking at it another way, whilst Scott Lively might have had an easy debate if he was preaching to his choir of the easily impressed and impressionable, I can’t see him winning over undergrads at the Oxford Union with his odious rhetoric and his ‘creative’ take on the holocaust.
    Frankly I think they did him a favour by botching the schedule.
    I say let the man make a humiliated arse of himself, he’s possibly the only person who could have made Lynette Burrows look like the voice of reason.
    I think this is one of those occasions where you give a bigot enough rope to hang themselves.
