Anti-gay evangelist Scott Lively, who supported Uganda’s ‘Kill the Gays’ bill, has said he thinks President Obama might be gay because of his support for same-sex marriage.

In an interview with Channel 4 News, Scott Lively said Obama was trying to “legitimise sexual perversion” and destroy religious values.

“I think Mr Obama may well be a homosexual himself,” he said. “He is certainly a radical homosexualist – meaning a person, whether they are homosexual or not, meaning a person who is 100 percent invested in the homosexual agenda.”

He added: “He is lending the weight of his office to a movement that’s goal is to overturn the Judeo-Christian sexual ethic and replace it with the gay ethic of sexual anarchy. That’s what he’s doing.”

Mr Lively is on trial for Crimes Against Humanity over his alleged support for the Ugandan Anti-Homosexuality Bill and recently gave backing for Russia’s anti-gay laws.
