    I want this piece of scum banned from entering the UK. An undesirable who contributes nothing to civilised society and is in fact a threat to order and our way of life and values.

    1. Has anyone had a reply from Theresa yet, her who has been claiming this week at her party bash that she has a pair of brass ones.

      1. Robert in S. Kensington 2 Oct 2013, 7:17pm

        No, I emailed her a month ago about the evil of this man. I urge everyone to and send a copy of this article. Tweeting might be easier more direct.

    I don’t think you can run for anything when being under investigation for international crimes against humanity.

    This man is a waste of oxygen

  3. So, facing trial for something as serious as crimes against humanity doesn’t bar someone from running for political office? A person accused of co-writing the LGBT death penalty law in Uganda is allowed to run for a position in which he would have the power to decide on legislation and it’s implementation?
    It would be a serious problem for the state and everyone living in it if he somehow wins the election, and even more-so if/when gets found guilty.

    1. It’s not an “LGBT death penalty law”. The law simply criminalises certain sex acts.

      You don’t have to approve or condone the law, but don’t call it something it’s not.

      1. A summary of the proposed law in 3 and a half minutes.

        It doesn’t just line gay people up for a death penalty, it lines EVERYBODY up for it.
        And that is not even touching upon the provisions in the bill that disregard the authority of foreign jurisdictions, not only allowing someone in a foreign country to be convicted and sentenced to death for something that didn’t happen on or around Ugandan territory, but also permits Ugandan authorities to act to remove people from other nations without regard for existing extradition treaties or the laws of those other countries.

    Oh, I wonder what will happen with the campaign funds *insert rolley-eyed smiley*….

    This man is getting desperate. He’s going to prison and his assets will be frozen or confiscated. Living on borrowed time.

    What a delusional species Scott L is.

    (Off topic) Please accept my apolgies but I couldn’t get on the putin thread? Edward Snowden, has also been nominated for the Noble Piece Prize. In any case, Snowden, seems to have a shot at next years prize as nominations for Laureates must be made no later than February 1st for consideration. Therefore, we we won’t be hearing about putin until next year as his apparent nomination over Syria was well after the deadline for this year, despite Russias alleged role as the main supplier of weapons to Bashal al-Assad’s regime? hopefully leaves putin up the kyber pass without a paddle. (in my view)

    The only thing he’s “immune” from is common sense.

  7. Justusboyz 2 Oct 2013, 8:50pm

    In common with others, now he is being investigated for crimes against humanity I fail to see how he can be credible as a US governor.
    Added to his book which is a complete work of fiction , this former (we only have his word for it) alcoholic , drug addicted fiend has no place in decent society.

  8. Eewwww…to think he used to be so sweet when he was in Gossip Girl(!)

  9. I thought you couldn’t run for public office if you have a serious mental deficiency.

  10. Scott Lively is running on a platform of HATE; anti-abortion, anti-gay, anti-republican, anti-democrat. Now he wants power (as a govenor ) and dictate his darkness, and again start homophobia, people hating what they don’t understand and fear is powerful. I think he won’t have a chance to win, if we keep telling the truth about him, and his motives of long term of hating and fear we can and must not elect him, but put him into world court and try him against humanity.

    1. If I believed in such things Lively would definitely be one of Satan’s minions, in reality he is a deluded and pathologically obsessive nut case who probably needs to be placed in a secure institution.

  11. This is his goal
    The First Amendment Supremacy Clause
    In no circumstance shall sexual orientation regulations supersede the First Amendment rights of
    individuals, churches and religious organizations to freedom of speech and the free exercise of
    religion.
    For the purpose of this statute religious organizations are those whose policies or culture are
    substantially influenced by religious values, including but not limited to Christian bookstores,
    adoption agencies, hospitals, businesses, social organizations and student clubs on college
    campuses.
    Statement of legislative intent: The First Amendment Supremacy Clause is designed to ensure that
    the first principles of the Bill of Rights to the United States Constitution, namely religious liberty and
    freedom of expression, are preserved and honored as essential values deeply rooted in our history and
    laws, as against the claims and reach of the newly invented category of law known as Sexual
    Orientation Regulations.

    1. OMG LMFAO IS THIS FOR REAL

    2. Or to summarise all that in a nutshell he wants a far right Christian theocracy.
      He’ll crash and burn the moment his opponents start dishing the dirt on the campaign trail.
      His opponents don’t have to win over a self deluded theocrat with skin as thick as a rhinoceros, they merely have to convince the electorate, an inconvenient truth he appears to forget.

    Scott Lively claimed Obama was married to his (male) room mate before being married to his wife and that Obama must be gay because he went on a trip with an aide for two days without his wife. Does he see gay sex everywhere or does h- yes he does, the man is in fact obsessed; dangerously so.

    1. Of course!!!! People who are SO filled with self-hatred because of their own repressed sane-sex attraction see gay sex EVERYWHERE!!! That is precisely why they are ‘obsessed’. They just cannot get the ‘desire’ out of their heads. So, by attacking others, they are really punishing themselves, psychologically.

  13. This is his Supremacy clause he wants to add to the first amendment of the US Constitution.

  14. Im glad he keeps a high profile. Why ? His democrat and republican opponents have the opportunity to smear the crap out of him.

  15. If this asshat thinks he is even electable in the most progressive state he must be on drugs. Or actually he should be heavily sedated and kept that way in a basement somewhere.

  16. Anti-gay candidate running for governor in the first state in the U.S. to legalize same-sex marriage. Lol, good luck with that!

  17. He literally has no idea of what he’s doing does he? He’s so ignorant it’s beyond belief.

    Oh, Scott…. tell me, where do you see yourself in 5 years?

    1. Justusboyz 3 Oct 2013, 6:40am

      Back in the gutter, from whence he came lol

  18. He is accusing us of slander?

    What about the Pink Swastika that was a load of nonsense he made up it is one of the most offensive books in existence.

  19. “humanism breeds corruption.”

    I am sure we all remember all those cases of famous humanists caught in corruption scandals.

    Now wait………………….

    No I can’t think of any, all the ones that come to mind asked god to forgive them because they went astray.

  20. The manner in which Pink News offers free advertising to extremists indicates the bigotry and homophobia of Bemjamon Cohen and whoever else works onvthis bigoted website.

  21. He’s clearly insane. It always amuses me that so many wealthy Christian Republicans obsess about socialism and homosexuality. Their Jesus never spoke about these issues. He preferred to condemn the rich.

  22. I can’t wait til his prayers go unanswered.

  23. So, someone is broke and is looking to drum up some money and support by hustling the dimwit rubes of America (of which, sadly, there are still far too many).

  24. Attention whore and nothing more. He’s a real-life troll, and this is just another example of him doing something to get more attention from his equally idiotic followers.

    The man probably suffered some kind of mental break a while ago, and now all he does is spend his days thinking up new and more disgusting ways to outrage all intelligent people.

    He will not get anywhere. A man accused of Crimes Against Humanity will NEVER get anywhere near politics at any level, and the fact that he thinks he stands a chance either proves that he’s trolling, or that he really is mentally ill – or both.

  25. Hilarious. I especially love the way that notions that would never have entered the heads of first century Jews are claimed as ‘Biblical values’. And try telling Pontius Pilate or the emperor Tiberius that government is the peoples’ servant!
    No ‘New Testament’ writer tried it!

    Good job Scott!!!

    Keep up the good work!!!

    “Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot they did eat, they

    drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;

    But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire

    and brimstone from heaven and destroyed t h e m all.”
