  1. Sounds like taking the credit to me, and not so much of the “indirectly”.

    Perhaps this televised statement could be taken into consideration when his Human Rights violation case comes to court, or will it be a case of “when I said it was one of the proudest moments of my career, what I meant was…”?

  3. I really don’t want to comment on this vile piece of evil masquerading in human form.
    He should be locked up in a closed psychiatric ward.
    There is no difference between this idiot and the vilest of the Taliban.
    Deranged sociopath with psychopathic tendencies. Still, I hope he passes the sanity test till he gets convicted of crimes against humanity. A sincere belief in sky fairies is no defence in law in Mass. USA

  4. Why the f**k doesn’t he just go and live among them then?

  5. It’s a shame they can’t hang him

    1. Hang? No. We’re better than him.

      Life sentence with no chance of leaving jail ever? Entirely possible. Not only is he standing trial in a US federal court for crimes against humanity, but the International Criminal Court (through a reference from the Security Council or consent from the United States individually in this nut’s case) might hone in on homophobic extremists soon.

  6. I don’t like what he says, but I do appreciate him saying it! because when he goes on trial “hopefully” the prosecutor in his trial will have volumes of evidence to support the charges against him.

    This is the one time when digging himself into a deeper grave by providing more evidence, may be the assurance he has no escape.

  7. As he has publicly taken credit for something that has caused people to be abused he should be arrested for crimes to humanity.

    He is the very definition of their own satan, deriving pleasure from people’s misery.

    Scott lively, another cold-blooded disgusting specimen of humanity revealed. While LGBTI people are being persecuted he collaborates with the nazis with skewed moral values, and a socioph’s lack of conscience.
    Scott lively’s motives are abundantly clear. This vile specimen wants revenge and is setting activists up as targets, by creating a list of slanderous rhetoric calling upon his flock to do his dirty work for him.
    These chilling lines tell us all we need to know about Scott Lively, and more importantly, anyone who would associate with this despicable vile species, should also be charged with inciting gay-hate crimes.
    (In my view)

  9. He definitely should be in a mental institution – by his own account. Apparently his father developed a mental illness when Lively was young and he became an alcoholic at twelve until the age of twenty eight. During this time he also took drugs, slept under bridges and begged on the street, a brother and sister also “went into homosexuality” (his words). The way he tells it he got down on his knees before Jesus and was “healed in an instant” and never wanted to drink or take drugs again. That or the church brainwashed him… or maybe he did it to himself. The intensity of his homophobia, he says, originates from witnessing a nineteen year old man molest a four year old, the nineteen year old “still living in a gay lifestyle in Los Angeles”. Of course he completely misses the core concept of paedophilia being a totally different thing from homosexuality. More likely he (or someone else) redirected all his pain and anger against the lgbt community, creating scapegoats.

    If he had said similar things about an ethnic group, his arse would have been dragged into court. Unfortunately, his sort of speech is protected in the U.S. even if it’s vile, disgusting and abominable as long as it denigrates and dehumanises gay people, he gets away with it. Not one American politician worth his or her salt has stepped forward to condemn him. Another religious freak who gets away with murder and one who also played a part in the Ugandan anti-gay legislation but denies it.

    Contact the Home Office and send them this article. Perhaps Theresa May will consider banning him from ever entering the UK.

  11. Boy oh boy am I going to be over the moon when all of this comes back to bite him in the ass. Even Hitler wasn’t so stupid as to discuss his genocide in the company of his own party, let alone brag about it to the public.

    Keep digging that grave you stupid demented freak.

  12. Which organisation funds Scott Lively’s anti-gay propaganda tours?
    The leadership need to be investigated and the IRS needs to do an audit.

  13. Common sense 27 Sep 2013, 4:16am

    He has form since he was the main mover behind the drafting of the Ugandan legislation, for wich he is currently being prosecuted by Ugandan activists. Plus he has travelled to and spoken in Russia many times over the last decade and in the process has met many Russian politicians. Which begs the question why US activists are pouring vodka down the drain and marching against Sochi but just ignoring this evil man.

    But he’s not the only one! In Britain we have the positively vile Anglican Mainstream pumping out a constant stream of hate. And the US has the bizarre Michael Voris of Church Militant TV and worldwide crusades and his particular brand of hate wrapped up in the unpleasant notion of ‘Hate the sin love the sinner’. It’s a constant battle against these folk.

    1. Robert in S. Kensington 27 Sep 2013, 12:44pm

      Not to mention Christian Concern and C4M, yet the minute we retaliate, they play the victim card game of abuse of religious freedom crap and our MPs say and do nothing even when they know the bigoted hatemongers are wrong.

    “Its activists are driven by an implacable militancy and a zeal to advance their own self-serving interests that rivals even the most fanatical religious cult.”

    That sounds as though he’s talking about his own nutcase organization, which he calls, with disarming dishonesty, “Defend The Family International”.

    1. Textbook psychological projection from Mr Lively.

      I don’t recall any of our lot trotting the globe peddling the death penalty for homophobic fundamentalist zealots, then describing it as “our proudest achievement”.

      But then he also calls us Nazis.

  16. He obviously doesn’t consider that he might one day also be implicated by his own admissions here.

    He’s already having to defend himself against the accusations of supporting the genocidal Ugandan bill, the CCR can now also use this recent claim of involvement in Russia as evidence that he’s militantly attempting to incite intolerance and violence all around the world.

    The man was already a complete idiot, but given his utter lunacy seen once again here, he obviously should be under some form of 24 hour nursing care.

    1. “He obviously doesn’t consider that he might one day also be implicated by his own admissions here.” You see you are a normal and sane person and this is the reason why you made this particular comment. But this man is not normal by any stretch of the means. In his sick mind, he believes that he will be legally martyred and in this he believe that God will magnify his cause and send others to take his fallen place. In other words, in his sick mind, he believes that he is the start of a revolution to wipe-out, to exterminate all of us from the face of the earth. I have read his website and he is that sick and twisted. As a true fundamentalist, he believes that he is not only doing the will of God but is appointed as a judge for God and in the stead of God. It was fundamentalists during Jesus’ time that had Him executed. As fundamentalists, they too thought that they were “executing” the will of God.

  17. Lively (what an unsuitable surname, ‘Deathly’ would be more accurate) really is a sad little man, isn’t he?

  18. He said, “Few political agendas in the history of mankind have marshaled (eliminate completely) the tenacity and resolve of the homosexualist movement.” Sounds like he wants to do something no one else in history has done before and that is wipe us all out. This ideology by itself is a crime against humanity.

    The evil, ungodly idiot…

    Gays don’t require any outside assistance in dying, from Scott. You credit him with way too much influence.

    Apart from barebacking which is advertised on Gaydar, the gay dating site which is owned by Charlie Parsons, civil partner of Lord Waheed Ali, there is the rocketting incidence of sexually transmitted diseases amongst men who have sex with other men.
    There is the incidence of violence within the so called gay community, including for example the David Kato who was murdered by a gay prostitute, Enoch Sydney Nsubuga . And what about the Matthew Shepherd ? He was a victim of violence with the drug culture to which many gays belong ? Need we mention the high incidence of suicide amongst gays in countries like Holland, New Zealand and all those countries that have embraced homosexuality.
    No sirs, there is an internalised homophobia,within the homosexual which only Jesus Christ can deal with who said, “Come unto me all you who are heavy laiden and I will give you rest.”

    1. oops, meant to click down . . . . oh well at least poor old Skinner will have one up tick!

    2. Blimey, sweetie, you’re really upset about your suppressed desires, aren’t you? Ever thought of taking life a little easier? Still, it’s really sweet that you care so much about other homosexuals that you want them to feel (in every sense of the word, no doubt) the same degree of “salvation” you have.

      Just remember, the same facile “solution” doesn’t work for everyone. Some people even think for themselves, rather than resorting to antique alien platitudes.

    3. http://politicalscrapbook.net/2012/07/with-a-bit-of-luck-youll-get-aids-thanet-council-standards-committee-ken-gregory/ I would like to bring to the attention of posters to this site and to the editorial of Pink News the included link. David Skinner makes a habit of being provocative on this site with the singular objective of collecting comments made to his postings. Skinner is a manipulative and calculating professional “Christian” who holds nothing for LGBT people but hate. By responding to his deliberate provocations all you are doing is providing him with fodder for his promulgations against us. Pink News please remove Skinner from your site.

    In 1967, the Earl of Arran, one of those who helped to pass the decriminalisation of homosexuality, also gave a prescient warning:
    “Homosexuals must continue to remember that while there may be nothing bad in being a homosexual,( AIDS and HIV were not known then) there is certainly nothing good. Lest the opponents of the Bill think that a new freedom, a new privileged class, has been created, let me remind them that no amount of legislation will prevent homosexuals from being the subject of dislike and derision, or at best of pity. We shall always, I fear, resent the odd man out. That is their burden for all time, and they must shoulder it like men—for men they are.” In other words homosexuals are not a different breed but merely men with an emotional and spiritual disorder that only God can ultimately deal with.

    1. We shall always, I fear, resent the odd man out

      The fact that the ignorant majority may resent minorities isn’t, in itself, a major or novel issue: it just speaks of the boundless stupidity of the average.

      And it’s something you should actually sympathise with, Skinner, since there’s little doubt most people see you as a subject of dislike and derision. With much justification, I would observe.

    2. Mr Skinner, do you really think you are an effective ambassador for your God with your ignorant and heartless comments? You are right in that the odd man out faces challenges but there are many odd men out, some disabled, some of different skin colour etc. Much of the world is enlightened now. There are some, like yourself, who are slow to catch up. I wish you luck with your vengeful God but it sounds like an uncomfortable relationship. Sad people like to believe God hates.

      1. Whenever I read a David Skinner comment (or a clutch of them on the same page) I get the impression of a social inadequate with far too much free time who bit-by-bit has become dependent on the attention/ ‘company’ that Internet trolling brings to fill a hole in his life.
