Scott Lively, the guy who wrote the "Pink Swastika", was MassResistance's choice for Governor in last year's election and who spoke in Uganda in favor of the legislation that now advocates death for gay people said he's changed even though he's still preaching against homosexuality and says gay people are the reason American is in moral decline. From the Boston Globe:
He gained international attention after he was accused of stoking violence against gays in Uganda. One of his books, “Pink Swastika,’’ argues that Hitler and other Nazi leaders were gay. Another provides seven steps to “recruit-proof’’ your child from gay activists.
But Scott Lively says he is toning down his antigay rhetoric and shifting his focus to helping the downtrodden. And he’s found a home and a receptive audience in this struggling city where many, but not all, have embraced his mission to “re-Christianize Springfield.’’
Toning down his antigay rhetoric? How about trying to hide it.
After working for years as a conservative activist in California, he moved to Springfield, he said, at the invitation of Alexey Ledyaev, a Latvian pastor who offered him a position at his church, New Generation Christian Center. Gay rights groups have accused Ledyaev of fomenting antigay sentiment in the former Soviet Union. But Lively says he was inspired by Ledyaev’s call to “transform cities for Jesus.’’
And was anyone surprised when a HUGE group from Springfield showed up at the Massachusetts Constitutional Conventions made up of Russian immigrants.
