Lively wants to Kill the Gays and the Pope Approves


Scott Lively is one of those backward christians who really thinks that a god has come to him and saved him.  He’s also one of the christians responsible for going to Uganda in 2009 and ‘inspiring’ the “Kill the Gays Bill”.

Through international opposition the Uganda Parliament have not enacted the legislation.  They did supposedly change their minds and remove the parts of the bill that would see gay people executed for being gay.  However, the updated act would still see gay people locked up for life.  Just for being gay.

It’s a completely unjustifiable penalty.  Locking someone up because of their sexuality.  And yet people such as Lively think it’s a good idea.

First, the Bible has always defined homosexuality as a crime, and not just in the Mosaic Law.  Homosexuality was condemned by God long before Moses declared it a capital crime.

This is such a tired old claim.  I reject outright any notion that the bible has any authority over my life.  How offensive it is to use an old jumble of texts to justify your own hatred and bigotry.

Lively goes on to say:

The fact is that Ugandan law is typical of most African law in that it tends to be very harsh in the letter, but very lenient in the application.  I doubt very much that anyone arrested under the new law (if it passes) will receive anything close to the jail terms allowed for in the bill.

Regardless of whether someone is locked up, having a law on the books that requires imprisonment for life for something between consenting adults is unjustifiable. Even if the jail sentence is one day or even a minute. Nobody should be detained or have the threat of life in prison simply for being gay.

Third, and most importantly, there is one easy, guaranteed method of protecting oneself from ever being subject to the Anti-Homosexuality law in Uganda: Don’t Commit Sodomy!

By sodomy he means don’t have anal sex.  I don’t see why I should stop with the Love Llama – we have such a good time.  I’m not committing anything.  I’m sharing.

  We all seem to forget, in the dense propaganda haze of American popular opinion, that homosexuality is defined by voluntary sexual acts.

Yes, if it wasn’t voluntary on both parts we’d call it rape you dickwad. All sexual acts are voluntary, it’s really not a big deal.  However, for ways of expressing and sharing my love I voluntarily partake in sex acts with my Love Llama who just happens to be of the same-sex.  We love it.  Why should we stop?

Homosexuals are no more compelled to commit sodomy with each other than a married man is compelled to cheat on his wife.

killgaySexual relief is a natural bodily function.  I seek out said relief in many ways.  Nobody is ‘compelled’ to have sex at all.  We do it because it feels good.  Lively is not being asked to partake in something that he doesn’t like, nor are the people of Uganda.

While Lively is rolling around in his own little smug part of the world happy to endorse a bill that will cause great harm to his fellow humans, meanwhile, that other big religious homophobe in Rome has been busy too.

It seems that Pope Bendydick has blessed the speaker of the Uganda Parliamentt.  This is the same Ugandan who promised to pass the kill the gays bill as a christmas present for the people.  How charming.  Now the locking up of gay people is seen as a gift.

We can only see that as tactic approval by Bendydick that the Ugandans have it right in the eyes of the catholics.  Kill all the gays!

She handed over to the Pope a portrait of the Uganda Martyrs Shrine Namugongo, a historical place where Christians were murdered because of their allegiance to their faith.

Let me get this right… In Uganda people have been killed because they were christian.  Faith is something that can be changed, easily.  And yet, somehow, it’s ok to kill gay people because of who they are.  Will there be a shrine for those people?
