US: Hate preacher Scott Lively to run for Congress
Notoriously homophobic hate preacher Scott Lively has announced plans to run for Congress as a Republican.
Lively addressed an anti-gay conference in Uganda just before the country’s homophobic law was first drafted, and he is due to stand trial for Crimes Against Humanity for his role in encouraging anti-gay laws around the world.
He announced his intention to run for Congress in Massachusetts this week, writing for BarbWire.
He said: “As you know, I deplore the ‘political game’ and will continue to speak to you plainly and act forthrightly regarding my views and intentions.
“The day after the November election I switched my enrolment from Independent to Republican and am contemplating a run for Congress against Richard Neal. I have not made a firm decision, but am leaning in that direction.
“There are a number of reasons why I would pursue Congress rather than a state office, but one of them is my interest in foreign policy and concern about the disastrous actions of the Obama administration around the world.
“I am especially concerned that the Non-conservatives (read Republican liberals) have aligned with the Obama administration re Russia and are jointly waging a campaign of anti-Russian propaganda designed to deceive conservatives into supporting a hot war with Russia.
“This is a not only very dangerous game geopolitically, it is robbing social conservatives of their most valuable potential alliance in the world today.
“American and Russian conservatives could today be cooperating together to roll back liberalism around the world.
“Instead, the cultural Marxists of both major US political parties are trying to drive a wedge between us with the absurd lie that Russia is trying to revive the Soviet Union.
“If we rank the current leaders and countries of the world by that standard Putin and Russia rank high on the list — certainly much higher than Obama and his version of America.
“Indeed, is there any world leader speaking in defense of persecuted Christians in the Middle East like Putin has?
“Is there any other ‘first world’ nation standing up against the homosexual agenda like Russia is doing?”
