A Letter to the International Pro-Family Movement

I am Dr. Scott Lively, an attorney, pastor and President of Defend the Family International. For the past quarter century my ministry has been devoted to exposing and opposing the now-global homosexual movement, primarily in the United States, but with activity in more than thirty countries. I have been named public enemy number one by the world’s largest homosexual organization, the Human Rights Campaign, labeled a “hate group” by the uber-leftist Southern Poverty Law Center, and targeted for personal destruction by the George Soros-funded Center For Constitutional Rights in a federal lawsuit (utilizing a team of fourteen lawyers), charging me with “Crimes Against Humanity” for preaching a reasoned, factual and non-violent message against homosexuality in Uganda.

I am in truth just a simple Christian missionary, running a one-man office with an annual budget of less than $120,000, but the enormously wealthy and powerful international homosexual network considers me one of it’s greatest threats. Why? Because I know nearly as much about their history, strategies and tactics as they do and my life’s work has been to empower and equip pro-family activists around the world with those facts.

Importantly, I have personally experienced or been an eyewitness to every form of harassment, intimidation and sabotage that homosexualists’ employ to destroy anyone who dares to stand up to them. While I have known both male and female homosexuals who seemed like genuinely decent people despite being ensnared in sexual disoriention, I can confirm the warning of the Bible in Romans 1:24-32 that (in contrast) the Leaders and Activists of the LGBT movement are malicious deceivers and evil-doers, deliberately subverting civilized society and viciously attacking all opponents to advance their selfish and self-destructive interests.

I have paid a heavy price for the authority with which I speak, and I urge you to give credence to my testimony.

We must above all be honest with ourselves. With the Obergefell v Hodges so-called “gay marriage” decision of the United States Supreme Court, the American pro-family movement has been set back dramatically — to a position equivalent to that of the pro-life movement in 1973. Indeed, Obergefell is rightly described by many as the Roe v Wade of the homosexual issue, which fact has profound implications for us all.

My ministry is one of only a dozen or so single-issue pro-family organizations in the United States who speak the truth about homosexuality boldly and unapologetically, most of which are similarly small and not well funded. With a couple of exceptions, the larger multi-issue Christian conservative groups are shackled by fear of the politically-correct media and are unwilling to base their arguments on the abnormality of homosexuality itself, acquiescing to many key homosexual demands such as civil unions and sexual orientation regulations, thereby severely undermining their moral authority.

One by one, all of the influential secular institutions of the United States have capitulated to a decades-long campaign of homosexual bullying and to such a degree that today even the once staunchly conservative US Chamber of Commerce has become a tool of “gay” social engineering.

The American public education system (from pre-school through graduate school), our social media giants, and the majority of our news and entertainment media are not just pro-homosexual, but militantly so.

Our government is in the hands of a man called “The First Gay President” by Newsweek magazine (which intended it as a compliment), who has made the global advancement of homosexuality such a priority of his administration that over $700 million has been devoted to it in just the past three years.

Only the Christian church (and Torah-faithful Jews) continue to stand against the homosexual agenda in America and most of the western world. However, subjected as it is to constant, aggressive pro-“gay” advocacy and suppression of pro-family dissent in the popular culture and key institutions, the church is weakening, especially among its most vulnerable members, the youth.

That is the unfortunate reality not just in the United States, but the UK, Canada, the EU, and much of the rest of the western world.

Yet, though our situation is dire, even in the United States there remains work that can be done to reverse the current trend for those with long-term vision. And if we adopt a global perspective, and are willing to build intra-national cooperation with morally-conservative countries (who still represent the vast majority of the world’s population), there is realistic cause for optimism.

In my view as a veteran Christian missionary to the international pro-family movement there are three things we must do.

Inoculate the Church Against “Gay Theology”

First, we must protect and strengthen the Christian church by promoting Biblical literacy and fidelity regarding sexuality, marriage and family. Satan’s greatest weapon against mankind has always been to sow doubt about God’s Word and to present a plausible counterfeit alternative to those weak in faith and knowledge. The question, “Did God really say that?” was his trap in the Garden regarding the first sin, and it is his trap today regarding homosexuality. The more ignorant that Christians are of the Bible’s stark warning about the personal and sociological dangers of homosexuality, the easier they are deceived.

For example, the now globally ubiquitous and seductive lie that homosexuality is innate and unchangeable, is directly and unmistakably refuted by 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, meaning that Christians who agree that “gays” are “born that way” and cannot change are literally denying Christ‘s authority and power, to their own spiritual peril.

Importantly, that lie is only one component of so-called “Gay Theology,” a sophisticated and detailed revision of Biblical teachings on homosexuality in one unified and comprehensive package. Launched as a new variant of “gay” political propaganda in the 1980s by the openly homosexual historical revisionist John E Boswell of Yale University (who died in 1994 of AIDS), “Gay Theology” quickly evolved into a powerful tool of LGBT political activism and a central doctrine of numerous left-leaning Christian denominations. “Gay Theology” today represents the great heresy of our time and is advancing rapidly throughout the world, primarily among young people.

I have created a short pamphlet titled “NOT Just Another Sin” which outlines the Biblical case against homosexuality from Genesis to Revelation in a chronological series of bullet points. I expanded upon and explained how these references, when taken together, represent “The Forgotten Last Days Warning About Homosexuality in the Bible” in an 18-page article with that title. Both of these resources are located here: http://www.scottlively.net/2014/08/19/not-just-another-sin/

Whether or not you choose to utilize these particular free resources or others that may be available on the Internet, it is essential that the church awaken to this threat and begin inoculating all Christian believers against “Gay Theology.”

Repeal or Amend All Sexual Orientation Regulations and Restore the Right to Discriminate Against Homosexual Conduct

Second, we must redirect our focus against homosexuality itself and not secondary cultural battles. The Bible warns, and human experience confirms that homosexuality is abnormal, unnatural and perverse conduct with severe personal and social consequences.  It is not only appropriate, but necessary to social health and order to discriminate against homosexual conduct and ideology — even as we distinguish the person-hood of those who identify as homosexuals from their destructive lifestyle.

“Love the sinner, hate the sin,” is a well-used and beautifully succinct summary of Christian theology on the matter, but somewhere along the way our movement got so focused on trying to show love for the sinner that we stopped reminding people why they should hate the sin. Probably because we got tricked into a posture of defensiveness by the “gay” movement’s cynical tactic of equating all disagreement with their political agenda as hatred and fear of the “gays” themselves (thus the term “homophobia,” which literally defines all disapproval of homosexuality as an anxiety disorder).

Not surprisingly, it was about that time in the American culture war when the pro-family side started losing the battles. Previously, when our campaigns exposed facts about homosexual practices, crimes, “gay” history, the relationship of homosexuality to pederasty, disease and mental illness, “hate-crime” hoaxes, and the corrupt conduct of “gay” leaders and activists, we won. When we started self-censoring those facts to try to prove we weren’t “haters,” we began to lose.

Recognizing our vulnerability, the “gays” began devoting themselves fully to pushing “anti-discrimination” policies defining “sexual orientation” as a basis for civil rights minority status. These Sexual Orientation Regulations (SORs) enshrine into law the logical premise that disapproval of homosexuality is morally wrong and must be publicly discouraged. They turn reality on its head and lead ultimately to the criminalization of Biblical Christianity. Moreover, wherever they have been enacted anywhere in the world, these SORs have proven to be the seed that contains the entire tree of the homosexual political agenda, with all of its poisonous fruit: “gay” marriage, “gay” adoption, indoctrination of public school children with “gay” propaganda, public funding of “gay” institutions, etcetera. Once the seed is planted, the entire agenda comes forth in steady incremental stages while dissent is increasingly punished.

It is this same flawed logical premise that allowed homosexuality to be granted the status of a “human right” in international law, one that increasingly now trumps the authentic human rights of religious freedom and natural family values.

In countries that have not yet adopted SORs, the pro-family movement should devote itself to preventing their enactment, and even passing prophylactic legislation recognizing the right of individuals, churches and businesses to favor natural family values and discriminate against homosexual conduct and ideology. Where SORs have already been enacted they must be repealed or amended to favor freedom of speech and religious liberty. I have drafted a model prophylactic statute for the American context, and a separate version of this model which may be used to amend existing SORs. Both may be adapted for use in other countries: http://www.scottlively.net/2013/07/24/the-first-amendment-supremacy-clause-fact-sheet/

Persuade Family-Friendly Nations to Adopt the Russian Ban on Homosexual Propaganda to Children

Third, we need to build international pro-family solidarity on a foundation of genuine moral authority, meaning it must rest on the premise that homosexuality itself is personally and socially harmful, and not pretend that our only social and political interests are the “welfare of children” or the “definition of marriage.” That pretense is a product of the same diseased pro-family “leadership” that marched the American pro-family movement from one disastrous defeat to the next for the past three decades, and it is now being exported to the rest of the world by the same men.

The beauty of the Russian law is it cuts right to the heart of the real problem of LGBT advocacy: the recruitment of children. What I mean by recruitment of children is not primarily the sexual exploitation of young people by adult homosexuals, though that represents a dark current within the larger “gay” culture, especially among the men. What I mean is the normalization of homosexual conduct and culture to children and youths, leading them to engage in homosexual experimentation among themselves and subsequently self-identify as “gay.” An entire generation of American, British and Canadian children has been enslaved to this corrupt culture and ideology through the very propaganda that Russia has now banned.

While numerous countries of the African continent have chosen a much stricter approach, seeking to deter all homosexual conduct through harsh criminal sanctions, the Russian law balances the privacy rights of adult homosexuals (who choose to live discretely outside the mainstream of society) with the need of the nation to protect its children from the ravages of sexual perversion. It deters the LGBT lobby from attempting to mainstream the “gay” lifestyle, while granting the individual members of its community the “right to be left alone” that was the original stated goal of their movement in its early years, before it adopted the militant fascist tactics it is known for today.

I have been falsely accused of masterminding the Ugandan Anti-Homosexuality Bill which initially included the death penalty for repeat homosexual offenders, though I had strongly encouraged the Ugandan Parliament to emphasize rehabilitation and prevention, not punishment in my address to its members in 2009. However, I am proud to say that I believe I played a small part in the adoption of the Russian law by advocating for such a policy in a 50-city speaking tour of Russia and the former Soviet Union in 2006 and 2007, ending in St. Petersburg where I published my Letter to the Russian People outlining my public policy recommendations. St. Petersburg became the first city to pass the law a couple of years later. http://www.defendthefamily.com/pfrc/archives.php?id=5225300

My purpose in writing this Letter to the International Pro-Family Movement is to have a similar influence in the direction of public policy in other family-friendly nations.

I urge every pro-family advocate across the world to personally adopt the three simple goals outlined in this letter and to work toward their implementation. I further offer my services as a consultant, lecturer and/or strategist to assist pro-family advocacy groups around the world to achieve these goals.

Lastly, let us all pray that 2016 will be the year when the LGBT global campaign to homosexualize the world will finally be turned back.

Your Ally in the Cause of Truth,

Dr. Scott Lively

SMUG Case Threatens US Constitution and Sovereignty

Rebelllion to tyrants image

Earlier this week I wrote an article about the threat that the “Crimes Against Humanity” lawsuit SMUG v Lively poses to the survival of my ministry. http://www.scottlively.net/2015/12/28/smug-v-lively-in-the-boston-globe/

Today I want to address the greater threat posed to the United States Constitution and our national sovereignty by this case.

First, it must be recognized that a central goal of the leftist elites in both major US political parties and the US judiciary is the sublimation of American courts to an emerging globalist judicial system. Increasingly, rulings by our supreme court cite foreign legal norms, consistent with the Socialists’ “Tide of History” metaphor. That agenda is advancing rapidly on many fronts, but none more aggressively than through the misapplication of a 1789 “piracy-on-the-high-seas” law called the Alien Tort Statute (ATS). Its misuse as a weapon of “social justice” was pioneered in the early 1980s by the so-called Center for Constitutional Rights, the Manhattan-based Marxist law firm driving the SMUG litigation against me.

On April 22, 2013, the Supreme Court dealt a setback to that agenda by ruling that Americans cannot be sued in US courts under the ATS for their conduct on foreign soil. Quoting the press release of my attorneys at Liberty Counsel:

“The Supreme Court today held that the federal Alien Tort Statute (ATS) cannot be used to challenge foreign conduct in United States courts. In Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Petroleum, the High Court held that the ATS does not ‘reach conduct occurring in the territory of a foreign sovereign.’ The decision is a severe blow to foreign entities and individuals that have sought to use the ATS – with alarming success in the last three decades – to bring foreign disputes in U.S. courts. These international groups had made a cottage industry out of asking U.S. courts to apply the amorphous and ever-changing dictates of ‘international law,’ even when it conflicts with U.S. law or the United States Constitution.

“Liberty Counsel currently represents Pastor Scott Lively in one such case brought against him by Sexual Minorities Uganda, which calls itself “SMUG.” In its lawsuit, filed in federal court in Massachusetts, SMUG claims that Mr. Lively violated ‘international law’ when he criticized homosexual conduct while visiting Uganda. SMUG is asking the Court to punish a United States citizen for his alleged speech in Uganda – speech that would be entirely protected in the United States. Liberty Counsel had previously asked the Court to dismiss SMUG’s frivolous lawsuit, partly on the grounds that the Alien Tort Statute does not apply to conduct outside the United States.

“The Supreme Court has now accepted Liberty Counsel’s argument and has made it the law of the land. On the basis of the just-issued decision in Kiobel, Liberty Counsel has again asked the Massachusetts federal court to dismiss SMUG’s lawsuit.”


Alarmingly, however, the SMUG v Lively suit survived.  Judge Ponsor ruled in his denial of our Motion to Dismiss that the case should continue, since my alleged conspiracy with Uganda officials to allegedly persecute homosexuals in that country might have been conducted in part on US soil — activity which he compared to a terrorist making a bomb in the US and shipping it to Uganda to be detonated.

Now, to whatever extent Judge Ponsor’s reasoning reflects the beliefs of our federal judiciary as a whole, the Alien Tort Statute is not only alive and well, but more threatening than ever to Americans’ rights to free speech and religious liberty under the US Constitution.

Even more alarming, however, is the fact that the SMUG case relies ultimately on foreign law, specifically Article 7 of the statutes of the International Criminal Court (ICC), based in The Hague, Netherlands. The United States (to the ire of every leftist activist in the western world), is not a party to the Treaty of Rome that established and regulates the ICC. Yet its standards have been allowed in the back door, as it were, in the SMUG case. A SMUG victory would necessarily recognize ICC’s legitimacy in our federal courts, with deeply disturbing implications for all Americans, and for the supremacy of our constitution relative to international treaties.

But it gets worse. In a Motion to Dismiss, the judge must assume that all of the facts alleged by the prosecution are true and then apply the law to those facts. If the facts are insufficient to meet the legal standard, he must dismiss the case for “failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted.” Judge Ponsor denied our Motion to Dismiss, which means that he had to have concluded that the facts alleged by SMUG did meet the legal standard for “Crimes Against Humanity of Persecution,” Article 7(1)(h), of which I am accused, leaving only the question of whether the alleged facts were true.

The problem is that SMUG alleged only eight incidents of “persecution” by the Ugandan government over a ten year period, with only one of them, the murder of SMUG activist David Kato, remotely approaching the gravity of a Crime Against Humanity. (However, at the time that SMUG filed its lawsuit, Kato’s confessed killer was already serving a 30 year sentence for the crime: a “gay” prostitute whom Kato had bailed out of jail to be his live-in house-boy. It was a garden-variety “gay on gay” murder entirely unrelated to any alleged government campaign of persecution.)

But “Crimes Against Humanity” is a category of the most egregious possible crimes in the civilized world. It was codified in international law to prosecute Nazi officials after WWII for their notorious atrocities — crimes deemed so horrific that they “shocked the conscience of the nations” and justified the rejection of German national sovereignty as a legal defense. (The Nazis had first legalized their atrocities before they committed them.) And the Introduction to Article 7 specifically states that “its provisions…must be strictly construed, taking into account that crimes against humanity as defined in article 7 are among the most serious crimes of concern to the international community as a whole.”

You can read the statute for yourself here:


So, for Judge Ponsor to have concluded that SMUG’s facts met the elements of Article 7(1)(h) of the Rome Treaty, he had to have dramatically broadened and liberalized the scope of the statute, and, importantly, to have extended its protections to homosexuals as a class, since they are not included in the list of protected categories, nor is the denial of civil rights based on sodomy or sexual orientation “universally recognized as impermissible under international law.”

The staggering implication is that commonplace “civil rights violations,” of the sort litigated routinely in major America cities, could suddenly fall within the definition of “Crimes Against Humanity” here in our own country if SMUG prevails. And internationally, the weight of a US Federal Court ruling would be lent to the efforts of the leftist elites to criminalize “homophobia” globally, and deny morally conservative countries around the world the right to oppose the legitimization of sexual perversion in their societies.  It’s the “Holy Grail” of the global LGBT lobby.

It seems quite bizarre to bystanders that I am being sued civilly in America for allegedly violating an International Criminal Court statute by allegedly “conspiring” with Uganda government officials who have not themselves been charged with any crime in the International Criminal Court, and that my “conspiracy“ amounts to preaching Biblical standards of morality that our constitution was expressly written to protect. However, I know that I am not much more than a pawn in a diabolical legal and political strategy to destroy American sovereignty and bring this nation under the authority of a global Socialist government.

They’ve chosen me because I’m relatively powerless and easy to malign.  Politically-speaking, I don’t have “friends in high places” or affiliations with major Christian media or other conservative institutions. But this case deserves far more attention than it has received among American patriots and constitutionalists. SMUG v Lively is really SMUG v America — America as we once knew it before freedom-hating Marxists like the Center for Constitutional Rights came to power.

As a Christian pastor my trust is in Jesus Christ and I know He will bless me for my refusal to surrender to those who hate Him and His Word.  But I am also an American who shares our Founders’ conviction that resistance to tyranny is obedience to God, and I know the threat this case represents to this land I love. My prayer is that the larger conservative movement would become more aware of this case, and it would cause its members to remember and return to the Biblical standards that once served as an impenetrable protective shield around our constitutional rights and national sovereignty.

I would also ask for their support to my ministry, which is standing in the gap and taking the arrows for cause of freedom. Please donate here: http://www.defendthefamily.com/help/donate.php

Dr. Scott Lively


Article 7 (1) (h)
Crime against humanity of persecution
1. The perpetrator severely deprived, contrary to international law,21 one or more persons of fundamental rights.
2. The perpetrator targeted such person or persons by reason of the identity of a group or collectivity or targeted the group or collectivity as such.
3. Such targeting was based on political, racial, national, ethnic, cultural, religious,gender as defined in article 7, paragraph 3, of the Statute, or other grounds that are universally recognized as impermissible under international law.
4. The conduct was committed in connection with any act referred to in article 7, paragraph 1, of the Statute* or any crime within the jurisdiction of the Court.
5. The conduct was committed as part of a widespread or systematic attack directed against a civilian population.
6. The perpetrator knew that the conduct was part of or intended the conduct to be part of a widespread or systematic attack directed against a civilian population.

SMUG v Lively in the Boston Globe


This morning the Boston Globe published an update on the SMUG v Lively lawsuit which accuses me of “Crimes Against Humanity” for preaching against homosexuality in Uganda.

Conservatives know all too well that our Leftist counterparts in the LGBT movement are shameless liars who will use any means available to them to destroy those who oppose their selfish agenda. But never in the modern world has any pro-family advocate faced the level of malicious persecution that I have.

I have great sympathy for the bakers, printers and other small business owners who have been closed down through the outrageous abuse of domestic anti-discrimination laws by “gay” activists. For government employees whose rights of conscience are callously trampled. For students at every grade level whose attempts to affirm natural family values in the classroom are penalized and suppressed. And for therapeutic ministries whose work to help young sex-abuse victims reorient to heterosexual normalcy has been criminalized by tyrannical Democrat-controlled state legislatures. These are clear examples of persecution of Christians (and Torah-faithful Jews).

But none of these approach the level of persecution that I have faced since 2009 when the international LGBT network picked me to be their scapegoat for the Ugandan Anti-Homosexuality Bill (AHB).

Although I never advocated hatred or violence against homosexuals there or anywhere, and from the beginning opposed the AHB as overly harsh and draconian. And although there has been nothing in Uganda’s opposition to the LGBT lobby that remotely resembles “Crimes Against Humanity” (e.g. torture, murder, concentration camps or genocide). And although SMUG has not provided a single piece of evidence linking me to any specific incidents of alleged persecution of homosexuals in Uganda…

…despite these essential facts, my name and this ministry have been (globally) maliciously characterized as a force of evil in the world comparable to Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich for whom the category of “Crimes Against Humanity” was invented at Nuremberg. Their propaganda campaign has been so extensive, and echoed across such a wide swath of the “elite” leftist media (The New York Times, The Guardian in England, The National Post in C, ABC Nightly News, etc) that even many conservative Christians pastors in America (who should know better) have believed it. And since March of 2012 I have suffered under the emotional strain and operational burden of a landmark federal lawsuit (whose presuppositions and implications are central to Leftist goals and ideology both domestically and internationally), in a Massachusetts District Court, against a team of 14 lawyers. If they prevail, they could saddle me with potentially millions of dollars of debt in damages and attorney fees — and an injunction intended to silence my pro-family advocacy forever. (Thank God for Liberty Counsel, and my brilliant attorney Harry Mihet, who are fighting hard and so well against overwhelming odds).

Meanwhile, the laughably misnamed Center for Constitutional Rights which is driving this lawsuit, is raking in untold fundraising riches from every corner of the leftist universe as the “heroic defenders of the persecuted Ugandan homosexuals.” That’s on top of what they’re getting from George Soros and other left-wing mega-donors, who are undoubtedly delighted with this case.

My friends, SMUG v Lively is truly a David v Goliath battle. I’m runing a one-man office on a shoestring budget of less than $120,000 per year, provided almost entirely by donations of $50 and $100 from average people. Our donor base is small, mostly elderly, and very difficult to expand due to the success of the anti-Lively propaganda. While Liberty Counsel has been funding our legal defense, this lawsuit has nevertheless caused us major financial hardship and seriously threatens our future.

Frankly, I question whether ATM will survive the decade without greater support from the individuals scattered across the society who recognize the danger of the LGBT agenda and are willing to stand with us financially against it. That can only happen if the people who already support us encourage their like-minded friends and allies to donate to us. (Urge them to review our website and my blog – below – to recognize our value to the movement.)

It will also require that some of our elderly supporters remember Abiding Truth Ministries in their wills and other planned-giving documents.

Tiny Abiding Truth Ministries is one of the most feared and hated pro-family organizations in the world, as the intensity of the LGBT attacks attest. Not because we do what they accuse us of (you know they ALWAYS lie), but because we know more about the history, strategies and tactics of their movement than just about anyone on our side, and we’re dedicated to empowering and equipping pro-family advocates around the world with that knowledge.

There is really no other ministry that does quite what we do, and it is up to you whether we survive to continue our vital work.

Please give generously here: http://www.defendthefamily.com/help/donate.php

And please forward this email to individuals that you believe would join us as ministry partners, with your personal note of encouragement for them to do so.

For the Cause of Truth,

Dr. Scott Lively

Of Human Shields and Swords

The image that best defines the clash of barbarism vs. civilization in the world today is that of innocents used as human shields. The barbarians use our humanity against us and force us into a moral conundrum. Do we bomb the enemy missile-launcher in the hospital complex or do we let it continue to let it rain death on our own population? We are forced by the barbarians to choose the lesser of two evils, whatever that might be and then face the scorn and wrath of whichever half of the polarized public we disappointed by our choice. It’s a tactic straight from Hell.

But even more devious and diabolical is the use of innocents as a human sword, as in the so-called “Syrian refugee crisis.” Credible reports suggest that this river of human misery — carrying God only knows how many Jihadist Trojan Horses in its current — was deliberately created by the barbarian Obama administration. It is said he was bombing civilian infrastructure in Syria to 1) deplete Syrian President Assad’s pool of available men of military age, and 2) to force Europe to take a more active part in ousting Assad by blaming him for the consequent social chaos in the European nations. The tactic might have worked if not for Russia‘s direct military intervention to preserve its Syrian ally.



Now this might be too much conspiracy theory for American conservatives to swallow, given the extent to which the Obama/Neocon anti-Russian propaganda has influenced the conservative movement. Many have been persuaded to give Obama a pass on his Middle East “debacles” to the extent that they conform to Neocon war strategy — which now as usual seems to be about oil and the petrodollar, and specifically about the Qutar/Turkey oil pipeline that Assad refused to allow across Syrian territory (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qatar-Turkey_pipeline).

So let’s test the old Latin maxim of police detectives everywhere, “Cui Bono?” (literally, to whose profit?), regarding the question of whether Obama is Machiavellian-enough in his character to deliberately displace millions of people and destabilize entire regions of the world to further his political interests.

Who benefits from the “Syrian Refugee Crisis?”

First in line are the Moslems, who are flooding into Europe in unprecedented numbers. Jihad by immigration, followed immediately with Jihad by terrorism. Obama’s most consistent foreign policy objective if measured by actual result rather than rhetoric, is strengthening Islam in all its forms.

Second are the Cultural Marxists, who above all other things hate Christianity. We know how regime change works as regards nations. In the Moslem immigration-invasion of Europe we are seeing the world’s first attempt at continent-wide “religion-change.” Obama is dramatically weakening what is left of the Christian identity of Europe (which in turn is offering only secular-themed counter-measures to the Islamist threat, such the “Je Suis Charlie” meme, lionizing the vile atheist magazine Charlie Hebdo).

Third is Obama pal and benefactor, George Soros and his Open Society agenda. The Soros vision of a world of borderless countries has never had a greater champion than Obama. Let’s not forget last year’s cresting wave of “child refugees” into the United States from South America, which appears in retrospect to be a dress rehearsal for the European invasion.

We were expected to believe that wave of “children” was a spontaneous reaction to un-scripted political events in their home countries. But is there any country in the world today not being manipulated by Obama’s CIA, State Department, and Marxist co-conspirators like Soros? Maybe we should ask Bibi Netanyahu, one of the few to survive Obama’s globe-hopping political hit squad, partly by exposing Obama’s deep personal hatred of him to the American people through the dramatic showdown over his historic speech to Congress (proving once again that offence is the best defense).

Fourth are the Neocons themselves, aligned most closely with the Sunni Moslem governments of Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qutar, who would all greatly benefit financially if regime change in Syria allowed them to install their own pro-pipeline puppet (though the Russians have thrown a monkey wrench into that plan).

Now, some might say there’s a silver lining to the Syrian invasion in that it has prompted a populist backlash in Europe, but let’s not forget that inciting the far right while ignoring or suppressing measured conservative solutions is an age-old sub-plot of these tactics, designed to justify suspension of civil rights and enhanced police-state actions by leftist-controlled regimes. Look what’s now happening in Socialist France — and yet many conservatives are now literally cheering martial law because finally France is “doing something.”

There’s another danger to principled conservatism in the populist determination to lump all the refugees together as a single mob of dangerous Islamists, rather than as individuals to be judged on their own merits. It’s the leftists who push group identity and rights, not conservatives! But we are playing right into their hands by bending to populist mob psychology.

We’ve grown conditioned to applying group identity to illegal aliens — which in a narrow context is deserved since they each made themselves criminals by choosing to violate our immigration laws.

But refugees are an entirely different matter. No matter how many of the “Syrians” seeking asylum have evil intent, they are not one monolithic block of criminals. At least some of them are innocents who have been made refugees by the evil actions of others. (Wouldn’t you do the same to save your family if someone deliberately made your community unlivable?)

These are the “human swords” of the Obama regime-change agenda — people who genuinely did not want to leave their homes and seek safety somewhere else, and would immediately return if they could have their old lives back.

Let’s not allow the puppet-masters to steer us into simplistic populist reactions that serve their interests and not our own. Let’s place the blame where it belongs — on the globalist manipulators — while honoring our God and our principles by treating the refugees as individuals who may in fact be victims of the very same enemy.

Let the Backlash Begin! But Be Careful.

When Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg spoke at the University of Chicago Law School in May of 2013, she gave a thinly-veiled heads-up to her leftist fellow-travelers around the nation that SCOTUS was not going to find a constitutional right to “gay marriage” in the then-pending United States v. Windsor case (which instead simply struck down the federal Defense of Marriage Act — DOMA). Her means of telegraphing this message was a surprising critique of Roe v Wade in which she said (in essence) that Roe was a bad ruling — Not because she disagreed with its pro-abortion substance, but because it went too far too fast, creating the pro-life movement. If they had only gone more slowly, and let the frogs acclimate to the rising temperature of the water, they wouldn‘t have jumped out of the pot on that issue.

Sure enough, Windsor did not become the LGBT Roe v Wade. But, unable to restrain their zeal for the ultimate leftist cause, the elites waited only two years to force their will and claim their prize in Obergefell v Hodges by the only means available to them: 1) the invalidation of about two dozen popular (and decisive) elections — in the most conservative states — by a tiny handful of dictatorial federal judges, and 2) the delegitimization of the Supreme Court itself by the outright invention of a new constitutional “right” with no basis in law, whose majority vote relied on two Justices (Ginsberg and Kagan) who had performed same-sex “weddings” during the pendency of the case, in an unprecedented and breathtaking violation of fundamental judicial ethics.

But Obergefell, it seems, did much more than create an LGBT Roe v Wade. It awakened the sleeping giant of the Christian church while concurrently creating an immediate and actual justification for our civil rebellion. Beginning with just a trickle, an increasing number of Bible-believing Christians are now joining the ranks of the so-called “Christian Right,” which, prior to Obergefell, had been slowly but steadily waning in power since the heady days of Ronald Reagan and the Christian Coalition in the 1980s.

In the elections of early November, the extent of this seismic shift was seen all across the country as voters in Texas, Kentucky, Virginia, Ohio and Mississippi provided large majorities to conservative candidates and against leftist causes. Houston, Texas rejected special rights for transgenders by nearly 2 to 1, in a turnout that doubled that of the prior two elections, despite a 3 to 1 spending advantage by the left and threats of the loss of hosting the Superbowl in 2017. In Kentucky, an 80,000 vote majority elected outspoken pro-life and pro-family hero Matt Bevin in a stunning upset, attributed to his promise to defund Planned Parenthood and defend Christians like Kim Davis who defy activist judges on LGBT issues.

Importantly, the rise of the Christian Right parallels and compliments that of the Secular Right, which is best recognized in the Trump phenomenon, but is represented in a much wider swath of voters than just Trump supporters. The Secular Right is energized far more by the invasion of illegal aliens and the collapse of the economy, the military and our relations with foreign governments than with the collapse of morality and the natural family. But there is significant overlap of these two large and growing movements and tremendous impetus to unify against the common enemy: the Obama administration and ruling leftist elites.

There is no question in my mind that the globalists are making their move while their man is still in the White House, and we’re certain to see an increase, not a decrease, in the extent to which the Marxists overplay their hand. They really have no choice since they know that if they do not defeat the republic and establish their empire now, they will likely never again enjoy the current “perfect storm” of culture-wide institutional control, political will and muscle in the executive and judicial branches (and acquiescence in the legislative), and near-dictatorial (but crumbling) global power.

So, rather than play their former game of two steps forward, one step back (the Marxist dialectic) they are now ALL-IN. And knowing that this blatant play for power will inevitably further strengthen and energize their opposition, they have planned and are now implementing a judo move against us.

The strategy is to rapidly polarize the society to the point of violence by conservatives, which will serve as a pretext for “defensive” police-state measures to suppress what they have already begun to spin as the rise of neo-Nazism. That’s the motivation behind the Black Lives Matter campaign and the outrageous, anger-inducing policies involving illegal aliens and multi-trillion dollar debt financing of ever more bloated entitlement programs and government expansion. The elites are deliberately provoking civil unrest to justify the suspension of civil liberties and what is left of the rule of law under the constitution.

An agent provocateur (or “inciting agent”) is someone who acts deliberately to entice another to act rashly or illegaly, so they can be arrested or otherwise punished. That, writ large, is the strategy of the Obama administration and the leftist elites in their continuous and escalating provocation of the right. It is important for the cooler heads in our Christian/Secular conservative coalition to educate our people about this tactic and caution them against rash acts in the coming weeks and months. We should also be on the alert for staged incidents by our opponents that they will most likely implement if they can’t goad our own people into such acts — and we should make public our accusation that we believe they intend to do so.

By all means, let the backlash begin!  But use caution.

Pass it on.

An Antidote to the LGBT ‘Little Apple of Death’



Sexual Orientation Regulations (SORs) (also known as sexual orientation anti-discrimination policies) are the most devious tactic of the LGBT movement for stripping Christians of First Amendment protections and setting the stage for the “gay” takeover of any social, political or cultural entity.   These SORs are the seed that contains the entire tree of the homosexual agenda with all of its poisonous fruit.  Once implanted, the entire agenda emerges like the trunk and branches of a Manchineel tree, producing what looks deceptively like wholesome fruit but in fact is known in the island paradise in which it grows as the manzanita de la muerte, or “little apple of death.”

Read more: http://www.mnn.com/family/protection-safety/blogs/why-manchineel-might-be-earths-most-dangerous-tree#ixzz3k7xUeEyG

The antidote to the poisonous SORs is First Amendment Supremacy!  The solution is already in the U.S. Constitution and simply needs to be re-affirmed in either of two ways:

Our First Amendment Supremacy Clause is designed to amend existing Sexual Orientation Regulations (SORs) in cities, counties, states, corporations, schools and colleges, and other organizations to ensure that in any contest of SORs with the First Amendment, the First Amendment must prevail.


Our First Amendment Supremacy Bill is a stand-alone statute to be enacted by states which do not already have state-level SORs.  FASB invokes the doctrine of preemption to “preempt the field” and mandate First Amendment supremacy over SORs within any sub-unit of its government and other entities within its jurisdiction.

First Amendment Supremacy Bill Fact Sheet

Send copies of these fact sheets to every pro-family political activist and public official you know and urge them to adopt the First Amendment Supremacy strategy.

Vigorously oppose any new SORs at any level.  Attack them as “Gay Fascism Bills” because that’s what they are.  (it worked in Springfield, Missouri http://www.scottlively.net/2012/07/09/christian-red-alert/)

It is SORs that have allowed the LGBT activists to take down Christian bakers, printers, florists, bed and breakfast hotel owners and others, and hung a sign saying “hateful bigot” around the necks of every Bible-believing Christian in America.

It is SORs that have allowed LGBT activists to take control of a vast number of huge corporations whose resources, identity, and community goodwill they are now cynically plundering to advance their selfish and destructive agenda.

Vigorously oppose the Federal Equality Act, which is an SOR at the federal level (ten times more dangerous than the SCOTUS “gay marriage” ruling).

Remind everyone that SORs are always sold as if they are limited to protecting homosexuals and transsexuals from employment and housing discrimination (despite almost zero evidence of such discrimination in America for at least 20 years), but in fact are ENFORCED as blanket prohibitions on all disapproval of the LGBT agenda!!

The LGBT agenda is poisonous, but we have the antidote in the First Amendment.  Use it, or lose it!

View My 2009 Uganda Conference that Led to the SMUG Lawsuit

The entire approximately three hours of my presentation are provided here:


and lest you think we edited to hide anything, note that the video was filmed by and remains in the control of a “gay” activist with the LGBT group “Political Research Associates” whom we allowed to film it.  He was one of several Ugandan homosexuals we allowed to attend the conference openly.

This video, which provides the context for most of the cherry-picked statements the “gays” say are hateful and inflammatory (and have published around the world to portray me as a hater), shows just how maliciously deceitful these people are.

Nothing to Celebrate in LGBT History

This is an updated version of a previously published article.

The 2015/2016 academic year will begin soon and this year the emphasis will almost certainly be on “gay studies.”

In many elementary and secondary schools across America October will be designated as LGBT History Month . It is certain to feature prominently in California where promotion of homosexuality to all school children is now mandated by law. And it is likely to be observed in all of the classrooms controlled by the nation-wide Gay Lesbian Straight Teachers Network (GLSEN), whose founder Kevin Jennings was appointed “Safe Schools Czar” by President Obama. Now that the United States Supreme Court has declared “gay marriage” to be a constitutional right by judicial fiat in the Obergefell case, we can be certain that “gay” history lessons for all American public school students is not far behind. This atrocity is guaranteed to occur on a wider scale immediately if for no other reason than GLSEN’s network of LGBT teachers, who already conduct such indoctrination sessions with no meaningful outside scrutiny, have now been embooldened and empowerd by the court.

LGBT History Month is not yet universally adopted by public schools. Nevertheless, throughout October tens, perhaps hundreds of thousands of innocent school children will be subjected to the most despicable brainwashing ever conducted in American classrooms. They will be taught, through carefully constructed lesson plans, to view homosexuals as a superior class of human beings whose influence on society has been wholly benign, but whose contributions to society have been limited due to irrational prejudice and bigotry. They will learn the importance of protecting homosexuals from societal “homophobia,” perhaps even emanating from their own parents, and that homosexuality is a perfectly normal and healthy (and unchangeable) form of sexual identity. In other words, they will be indoctrinated in provably false and thoroughly biased pro-“gay” propaganda.

In the interest of balance, I’d like to offer a few facts that are not likely to make it into the curriculum.

Let’s start at the very beginnings of the modern homosexual movement to highlight its very earliest pioneer. And for our source lets avoid even the slightest hint of anti-homosexual bias and turn to the pre-eminent scholarly journal of the LGBT community, the Journal of Homosexuality, and one of its most respect contributors, Gert Heckma PhD, of the Gay Studies department of the University of Amsterdam. In his 1989 article, titled “Sodomites, Platonic Lovers, Contrary Lovers: The Backgrounds of the Modern Homosexual” (Vol. 16, No 1. 1989) Heckma writes:

“The most important exception to the philosophes’ ambivalent politics of the body was D.A.F. Marquis de Sade, who based his political philosophy precisely on sodomy…Sade used sodomy as a particularly good example of what seemed to be unnatural, unreasonable and purposeless, but which could in no way be proven to be against nature or reason. Sade’s Philosophy in the Boudoir (1795) was a clear apology for the decriminalization of pederasty [man/boy sex] and sodomy…Sade emphasized that there were no rational arguments against any form of social behavior, be it prostitution, lust murder, or sodomy, and he strongly opposed the suggestion that theft, prostitution, sodomy or lust murder were against nature….

“In 1772, Sade was sentenced to death for sodomizing his manservant and for poisoning prostitutes…Nothing is known about his homosexual proclivities except for the sodomy of his manservant and his writings. But his most scrupulous biographer, Gilbert Lely, has asserted that he was a homosexual with no remorse….It was against…family politics…and the church and its institutions that Sade rebelled — albeit without much success — thus beginning a political struggle for the rights of pederasts.”

But that was long ago and far away. What about the modern homosexual movement here in America? Let us turn to another unimpeachably pro-”gay” source, the book Gay American History (1976) by Jonathan Katz, winner in 2003 of the Brudner Prize of Yale University, celebrating his “lifetime accomplishment and scholarly contributions in the field of lesbian and gay studies.” From this source we learn that the very first “gay rights” organization in the United States was the American chapter of the German-based Society for Human Rights (SHR), formed in Chicago by a man named Henry Gerber on December 10, 1924 (p.388).

Gerber had served with the U.S. occupation forces in Germany from 1920 to 1923 and had been involved with the German SHR. Gerber legally chartered the group without revealing its purpose and began publishing a pro-homosexual journal called Friendship and Freedom (p.389), patterned after the German chapter’s publication of the same name (p.632n.). In 1925, however, the organization collapsed when Gerber, Vice President Al Menninger and another member were arrested on charges of sexual abuse of a boy, all three having been turned in by Menninger’s wife. The Chicago Examiner ran a story titled “Strange Sex Cult Exposed,” and spoke of “strange doings” in Menninger’s apartment (p.390-392).

Another inconvenient fact unlikely to be cited by GLSEN brainwashers is that the German SHR, the world‘s first organization to define homosexuality as a struggle for “human rights,” was formed in 1919 by Nazi-aligned German nationalists (shortly before the formation of the Nazi Party), and that it’s most prominent member was Ernst Roehm, later to become supreme leader of the dreaded Nazi SA or Storm Troopers. Roehm was also, incidentally, a pederast, meaning that like Gerber he was an adult homosexual male who seduced teenaged boys.

This pederastic theme at the core of the “gay” movement did not end with Gerber. His eventual successor, Harry Hay, founder of the Mattachine Society in 1950 was an outspoken defender of NAMBLA, the North American Man Boy Love Association.
Hay’s Mattachine Society was the first openly homosexual organization to survive, and Hay himself is rightly remembered today as the “Founder of the Modern Gay Movement.” In The Trouble With Harry Hay, sympathetic biographer Stuart Timmons wrote that when NAMBLA was denied a role in the 1986 Los Angeles “Gay Pride Parade,” marcher Harry Hay donned a sweatshirt printed with the legend, “NAMBLA Walks With Me.” Timmons writes that Hay, “could not contain his outrage” that NAMBLA was excluded (p.296).

Hay was a featured speaker at NAMBLA’s annual membership conference, June 24-25, 1994: “[He] gave an inspiring talk about reclaiming for the 1990’s the spirit of homoerotic sharing and love from various ancient Greek traditions of pederasty. A remarkably balanced and sensitive account of the conference appeared in the August 23 Advocate from a writer who was invited to attend (NAMBLA Bulletin, September, 1994:3).

NAMBLA was in turn founded by leading “gay” activists including David Thorstad (who also founded the Gay Activist Alliance) and Thomas Reeves who wrote this choice tidbit about another icon of “gay” history, the Stonewall Riot.

“Almost every one of the early openly homosexual writers was a pederast. Pederasty was a constant theme of early gay literature, art, and pornography. The Stonewall riots were precipitated by an incident involving an underage drag queen, yet that detail was not viewed as significant. Curtis Price, a fourteen-year-old, self-described “radical hustler,” formed the first gay liberation organization in Baltimore. Many of the leaders of early gay liberation and the founders of the major gay groups in the U.S. were boy-lovers (Reeves in Pascal, Marc (ed), Varieties of Man Boy Love :47).”

Incidentally, Harry Hay was Obama “Safe Schools Czar” Kevin Jennings’s inspiration for founding GLSEN which might explain why Jennings himself had ties to NAMBLA and actively condoned pederasty: see http://www.examiner.com/article/kevin-jennings-is-he-any-less-dangerous-than-jerry-sandusky

Importantly, the anniversary of the Stonewall Riot, June 28, 1969, is celebrated today as “Gay Pride Day” (and is why all of June is celebrated as “Gay Pride Month”). That day marks the official turn to militancy in the LGBT movement, when its leaders abandoned the Mattachine Society goal of tolerance, as exemplified by its slogan “the right to be left alone,” and adopted in its place to the hard-core radicalism of Herbert Marcuse’s Frankfort School of “Cultural Marxism.” Marcuse demanded an end to “the repressive order of procreative sexuality” and the elimination of “the monogamic and patriarchal family.”

Following his model, the LGBT movement has ever since pursued a vision of total LGBT cultural and political supremacy in America and around the world. My article “Gay Agenda, What “Gay” Agenda? details this transformation. http://www.scottlively.net/2014/07/06/gay-agenda-what-gay-agenda/
I could go on and on but it only gets worse. The point is that the “gay rights” movement is not benign. Its history is a poisoned stream whose head waters begin in the swamp of Sadean perversion and whose direction was set by the same people who created the Nazi Party. In America its course has run mostly through underground sewers until the past few decades when control of the movement fell into the hands of modern marketing experts who have hidden the truth under a white-washed facade of their own shrewd design. And it is this sugar-sweetened poison that is about to be spoon-fed to America’s public school students. It is a potion of dangerous lies and it is to our great shame that this once Christian nation will allow these innocent children to consume it without so much as a whimper of protest.

Taking ‘Friendly’ Fire

Update:  Subsequent to this article, Mr. Ruse published a piece titled “The Grotesque Persecution of Scott Lively,” which in the big picture mitigates the effect of his first article addressed below, and for that I am grateful.  http://www.crisismagazine.com/2015/the-grotesque-persecution-of-scott-lively


I am mystified as to why Austin Ruse would denigrate my ministry in his column titled “Anatomy of a Mythical Boogeyman” at Crisis Magazine: http://www.crisismagazine.com/2015/anatomy-of-a-mythical-boogeyman. I have always held a good opinion of the man and our few encounters have been cordial and respectful. I am also puzzled that he would accuse me of being difficult to work with, unless he means that he and other pro-family leaders are afraid to be associated with me out of fear of controversy.

I think for my part I’ve shown great restraint in my few criticisms of the “mainstream” pro-family movement, and instead looked for ways to serve our common interests by taking on the harder tasks that nobody else wants to do — like documenting the homosexual roots of Nazism in my book The Pink Swastika (co-authored by Orthodox Jewish researcher Kevin E. Abrams) and publicly defending the Russian ban on homosexual propaganda to children which I think is a model for the world.

Ruse is correct that the LGBT propagandists have created a monstrous mythology about me by vastly exaggerating my influence in the culture war, but neither am I, as he suggests, just a camp follower of the pro-family royalty who’s been “bumming around the pro-family movement for years.” My resume and credentials speak for themselves.

Sadly, the arrogance reflected in Mr. Ruse’s comments may be the key to understanding why the “mainstream pro-family movement” has failed so spectacularly in defending America against the LGBT agenda. Time and again I’ve watched the know-it-alls in the big pro-family ministries — pumped up by enormous fundraising campaigns like a football player on steroids — push aside the lowly but effective grass-roots activists and take control of local and state battles, only to lose them by pandering to political correctness instead of telling hard truths without apology. The very people who work so hard to exclude our own street fighters from the battles run like frightened school-girls whenever the Marxist media looks cross-eyed at them. Their political strategies are almost entirely driven by fear of being called “haters” and trying to prove they aren’t. It’s pathetic.

Worse than pathetic, it is moral malfeasance because, as our self-appointed leaders, they have helped to emasculate an entire generation of American Christians by their example of timidity and man-pleasing. I’m not naming any names (and they’re not all guilty) but if you’ve been a pro-family foot-soldier for a decade or more you probably know which ones I’m talking about. Where have the mighty men like Dr. James Dobson and Dr. Ken Hutcherson gone?

When I first started reading Austin’s article I was pleased and excited. I thought finally one of the “titans” of the pro-family movement was going to come to my defense. But as I read on I realized that the whole article was designed to distance the “mainstream” movement from me because now that the “gays” have turned me into their ultimate “boogeyman” they’re trying to hurt the mainstream groups by suggesting they might somehow be associated with me.

Marxist strategist Saul Alinsky taught his followers to 1) pick a target to be the symbol of their opposition, 2) freeze the target in place through unceasing propaganda, and 3) publicly destroy the target to set an example to those who oppose them. I’ve somehow become that target: the sacrificial scapegoat of the LGBT movement. And, short of a miracle of God, I will be publicly destroyed, if not through the “Crimes Against Humanity” lawsuit then by some other means. If we have learned nothing else about the agitators of the modern LGBT movement, we know they are as relentless and implacable as their ancient counterparts in Sodom, who would not desist from their siege of Lot’s home even though they were struck blind by God.

I’ve done nothing to warrant being ostracized by fellow Christians like Austin. I’ve never advocated hate or violence against anyone. The accusations in the lawsuit and on the “gay” blogosphere are false. The facts I’ve exposed about the “gay” movement and history in my writings are true. I’m not a wild-eyed crazy like the late Fred Phelps. The only justification Austin and his associates have for shunning me is that I make them uncomfortable, and my plain-speaking gets in the way of their public relations schemes.

One of the things I respect about my Catholic brothers and sisters (that many Protestants don’t quite get), is their understanding of the value of suffering for Christ. My suffering is admittedly miniscule compared to the heroes of the Bible and of the present day in places like the Middle East, but I nevertheless feel honored to suffer for Him. It is a great privilege to be persecuted for Christ’s sake, as the Bible says everyone who desires to live Godly in Him will be. Persecution is the refiners fire that burns away our attachments to the things of this world and enhances our spiritual awareness. It is the fire that will soon bring revival to the believing remnant of the church while the faithless futilely seek shelter in compromise.

We’ve entered a new season in His story, one in which the ability to keep one foot in the church and the other in the world will quickly become impossible: like a man trying to straddle a chasm that opens up beneath him and widens until a choice must be made on which side to stand. In this new season, thinking and planning in terms of “marketing strategies” and “appealing to the secular mind” instead of just quoting the Bible and trusting God will fail us even more dramatically than they did before.

I’ve made my choice to stand with Jesus and to speak the plain, hard truth of His Word without compromise or apology no matter what the cost may be, even my life (Revelation 12:11). There is a small army of us already standing together in this pledge. I invite everyone who truly believes in Him to experience the extra blessing of enlisting in this army voluntarily today rather than waiting to be drafted in the dark days ahead — or, God forbid, to try to dodge that draft by siding with the enemy.

The Real Reason We Lost the Culture War

How was it that Gideon could defeat the vast army of the Midianites with just 300 men and a batch of clay pots, while in 42 years of all-out effort, our sizable army of pro-life activists has barely scratched the paint on front bumper of the pro-abort juggernaut of death (which has slaughtered — realistically — as many as 100 million babies since 1973 in the most gruesome and inhumane methods possible and now sells their harvested organs on the open market)?

How is it that a relatively tiny handful of homosexual activists, themselves representing less than 2% of our population, has managed in the same period of time to establish a reign of homo-fascism in the United States that has turned centuries-old American values upside down and has turned its large Christian plurality (if not majority) into criminals (if they dare to cling to the teachings of the Bible)?

Isn’t it true that one man with the flimsiest of plans could utterly defeat the abortion industry and the LGBT agenda in short order — if God backed Him? So why have virtually all our efforts failed?

It’s really pretty simple. The American church just doesn’t have God’s favor anymore.

The brutal truth is the church has lost the so-called culture war and is now under occupation, like the French under the Nazis, with nothing left to do but organize resistance and plot to overthrow the occupiers through a political revolt.

But those efforts are also guaranteed to fail if we don’t first answer the only question that really matters:

“Why don’t we have God’s favor?”

Some will say “It’s because we’re killing the unborn,” or “the pastors aren’t teaching Christian responsibility to vote,” and such like. But I tell you these are only symptoms of the disease, not the cause.

We don’t have God’s favor because we have officially rejected Him as the God of our land.

Our Supreme Court, the highest earthly authority in the United States, ruled on February 10, 1947 that it had the power to set itself above God and everything worshipped as God.

That ruling, of course, reflects the character and goal of the Antichrist as stated in II Thessalonians 2:4, but it became the official law of our land that day in Everson v Board of Education where, writing for the majority, Justice Hugo Black declared, in essence, that America was now a Secular Humanist nation in which all religions are equal and equally subservient to the U.S. Supreme Court. Everson was the case that falsely and arrogantly declared Jefferson’s metaphor “the Wall of Separation between Church and State” to be a principle of constitutional law.

Then in 1961, Black wrote the opinion in Torcaso v Watkins that held Atheism to be a religion, entitled to equality with belief in God, legally empowering every Atheist activist in America to begin to drive Christianity from public life as a “violation of the separation of church and state.” Prayer in the public schools was first to go, and today only minor vestiges of our Christian heritage survive in the public square — and only so long as they are deemed “cultural traditions” and not religious symbols.

What is worse, We the People, including most Christians, have meekly acquiesced to this change. Where we once collectively prided ourselves on having a “God-fearing society,” we now boast of our “religious pluralism” and revise the history we teach our children to claim that the first Americans came here to find “religious freedom” rather than to exercise “Christian liberty.” Even some of the most stalwart defenders of activist Christians in America (organizations and individuals I greatly admire) today define their mission as a fight for “Religious Liberty” rather than a fight for “Biblical Values.”

What exactly is “religious liberty” in a nation that has lowered the God of the Bible to equality to Buddha and Mohammed and even Satan as a matter of constitutional law? Isn’t it merely the right to believe what you choose so long as you concede that God is no longer King over the nation?

How thoroughly and how shamefully we have devalued the blood of America’s founders who died on the battlefields of the Revolutionary War with the cry “No King but Jesus” on their lips — and the blood of all the other patriots through the centuries for whom “American values” meant Godliness and morality, not child-murder and sexual depravity.

The greatest of all possible sins is not rape or murder, or even genocide. It is to break the First Commandment: “Thou shall have no other gods before Me.” But that is precisely what we have done as a nation, and the reason we are reaping a curse and not a blessing (Deuteronomy 28). And it is why none of our efforts to “restore Biblical values in our land” is bearing fruit beyond the saving of souls due to our ministry and the blessing the we personally receive for being faithful. The land itself is not being cleansed by our work.

Josiah, the most righteous of all the kings of Judah and the ultimate model of “social activism,” did far more than we could ever do to restore his nation through fighting evil (just read 2 Kings 23 for proof). Nevertheless, though Josiah was personally rewarded by God, the curse remained on Judea because the nation itself did not repent.

If we are under the same curse as Judah, not even prayer can save America. Of Judea, God told the prophet in Jeremiah 7:16 “So do not pray for this people nor offer any plea or petition for them; do not plead with me, for I will not listen to you” and again in 14:11-12 he said to Jeremiah “Do not pray for the welfare of this people. When they fast, I am not going to listen to their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and grain offering, I am not going to accept them. Rather I am going to make an end of them by the sword, famine and pestilence.”

The evidence suggests that America is cursed for rejecting God and caught in a death spiral from which there is no escape but the path of Nineveh. When warned of impending destruction, the entire city of Nineveh repented in sack-cloth and ashes, and God withheld His wrath.

Will we be like Judea and believe falsely that God would never destroy America or will we be like Nineveh and repent in sincere humility?

God gave only one remedy for the disease of apostasy. It is found several places in the Bible including 2 Chronicles 7:14. Look it up and memorize it if you haven’t already done so. Because there is simply no other way out of this mess.

Our Pro-Family Flag

Russian Flag4


The Russians have designed a new flag to counter the rainbow flag, which has sadly come to represent  “gay fever” in the world.


Abiding Truth Ministries has modified the flag to change the Russian caption “Real Families,” to “Natural Families: The Ecosystem of Humanity.”

I think this will be our new logo.

New Pederasty Accusation vs HRC Founder Terry Bean

Our lead news link at DefendtheFamily today is this story:


see also for more dirt: http://www.pioneertruth.org/hrc/

Yes, HRC stands for Human Rights Campaign, the very same homofascist organization that named me global public enemy #1 of the LGBT agenda for opposing and exposing pederasty in Uganda, Russia and around the world. (See http://www.scottlively.net/2014/09/17/hrc-has-targeted-me-for-murder/)

HRC’s founder, Obama Mega-Bundler Terry Bean was recently hit with new accusations of sexual abuse of a teenage boy. His trial on an earlier pederasty charge is scheduled to begin August 11th.

Note that “Bean allegedly paid the victim $40 after the encounter and encouraged the boy to join a support group for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender youths, according to the document.” I’ve alleged for years that these “LGBT youth groups” are nothing more than predator grooming centers.


Coincidentally, I’ll be in Oregon in early August. Regarding all of these LGBT horror stories coming out of Oregon, I’m planning to have my picture taken in front of the Capitol building with a sign reading:

Oregon Citizens Alliance

And I’m going to write an editorial on that theme listing Oregon examples of homofascism and LGBT crimes since 1992 when Oregon voted down our Ballot Measure 9, which would have stopped the LGBT agenda dead in its tracks.

Please send me any links you may have that I should cite in my article… and also send me email addresses of editorial submission contacts you may have for Oregon newspapers. Please forward this to your Oregon friends.


Dr. Scott Lively

btw, an article I wrote when the Terry Bean story first broke cites other prominent “gay” activists with pederasty scandals: http://www.scottlively.net/2014/11/20/hrc-founders-pederasty-charge-is-sweet-vindication-from-god/

Report on my SMUG Deposition



I’m not going to go into details but if I had to choose only one phrase to describe the SMUG attorneys’ efforts in their two days of grilling me under oath at their luxury Manhattan offices it would be “grasping at straws.” The veteran “hired gun” trial attorney they brought in from Boston to interrogate me was clearly frustrated that the SMUG legal team was expecting him to “make bricks without straw” as it were, since the very documents they gave him to question me about contained my rebuttals to their accusations.

For example, they voluntarily entered into evidence my Letter to the Uganda Parliament and Reply that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that I vigorously opposed the extremely harsh Ugandan Anti-homosexuality Bill which SMUG insists I masterminded — the essential premise of their lawsuit.


And on the second day they played into the record the entire 42 minutes of my April 2012 interview with Roadkill Radio in which I exposed in detail the utter dishonesty of the SMUG lawsuit. It is unfathomable to me that anyone, let alone trained attorneys, could think this radio show helps their case.


The whole deposition was like that: his skillful (but to me transparent) attempts to get me to agree with his deliberate mischaracterizations of my words and actions, defeated by my reference to clear explanatory statements in the same documents that show what I actually said and did.

Though I was glad the truth was getting on the record, I actually felt a little sorry for him. To make matters worse for him, whenever we went on the record and he started grilling me, a huge jack-hammer type piece of heavy equipment — big as a bulldozer — started up in the construction project across the street where (for the whole two day period) a crew was breaking up a gigantic two-foot thick slab of concrete. He commented frequently about how irritating it was to him, though it didn’t bother me at all.

The whole jack-hammer thing seemed like an obvious metaphor for the steady and relentless chipping away of their frivolous lawsuit by the hammer of truth. It also seemed quite obviously to be directed by the hand of the Lord in answer to all the prayers that were going up for me and my attorneys by hundreds of people around the world. By the way, our Liberty Counsel team led by Harry Mihet served its role at the highest level of professionalism.

I want to thank everyone who prayed for us, and to give all glory to God for what I believe was a great victory for truth in this latest in a long string of legal skirmishes. The case will likely continue, since I don’t believe the Center for Constitutional Rights (whose attorneys are the people driving the lawsuit and milking it as a lucrative fundraising cash-cow) has the integrity to dismiss it on their own initiative. But God is still in charge and I ask you to join me in continuing to pray that His will, not my will be done, whatever that may be.

I’ll keep you posted as events continue to unfold.

Justice that arrives like a thunderbolt

lightning bolt

As expected, SCOTUS today declared a constitutional right to “gay marriage” by judicial fiat. I haven’t read the ruling and may not ever do so since it really doesn’t matter what its reasoning is. The decision is illegitimate on its face because Justices Ginsberg and Kagan were disqualified from voting under the fundamental rules of judicial ethics because they each performed same sex “weddings” during the period of deliberations when the parties were legally entitled to impartiality by the jurists.

In response to the ruling, Mr. Obama called it an example of “justice that arrives like a thunderbolt.” That phrase turns logic and morality on its head as it relates to official government endorsement of sexual perversion. But I suspect it will eventually, perhaps very soon, be recognized in retrospect as an unwitting prophecy about God’s punishment on America for what she has just done.


12:30pm  I just received an email from my ex-‘gay’ friend Greg Quinlan informing me that today’s “gay marriage” ruling happens to fall on the anniversary of the fall of Jerusalem and the Kingdom of Judah in 586BC to Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzer: the ninth day of the fourth month of the Hebrew calendar.

“Coincidentally,” in our daily chapter by chapter Bible study at Holy Grounds Coffee House that we began in Genesis more than two years ago, we arrived today at Jeremiah 39, which reads in verse 2:  2And on the ninth day of the fourth month of Zedekiah’s eleventh year, the city wall was broken through.



Now consider all of this in light of Revelation 16: 17Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl upon the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple from the throne, saying, “It is done.” 18And there were flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder; and there was a great earthquake, such as there had not been since man came to be upon the earth, so great an earthquake was it, and so mighty. 19The great city [Jerusalem] was split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. Babylon the great [America] was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of His fierce wrath. 20And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 21And huge hailstones, about one hundred pounds each, came down from heaven upon men; and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, because its plague was extremely severe.

Update on SMUG Lawsuit


Elijah’s Contest with the Prophets of Baal on Mt. Carmel



Here is an article about yesterday’s hearing in Springfield Federal Court regarding a motion filed by SMUG’s lawyers to try to prevent me from seeing SMUG documents related to my defense.


Next Tuesday and Wednesday I will be in Manhattan for my deposition at the offices of Dorsey and Whitney, a large international law firm allied with the so-called Center for Constitutional Rights. I don’t know how many of the now 13 lawyers on SMUG’s team will be part of the deposition.

Some supporters have said they want to have a prayer presence outside during the deposition. I am neither promoting nor discouraging this, but if the Lord prompts you to do so, the address is 51 West 52nd St, NYC (the CBS building). Of course, as far as prayer goes, its effectiveness is not dependent on proximity to the subject, so wherever you may be please do pray for me during that time as you feel led.

I received a wonderfully encouraging note from a Sister in the Lord the other day that I will share below. I think the Elijah reference is particularly apt as the size of SMUG’s army of Baalists grows on the metaphorical “Mount Carmel” of this case.

 Dr. Scott Lively

“June 15, 2015
 Dear Dr. Lively,

During my quiet time on Saturday, I felt strongly that I should
encourage you by what I believe our Lord was speaking to me about
your upcoming deposition.
He reminded me of the situation in I Kings chapter 18 dealing
with Elijah and King Ahab and Jezebel and the prophets of Baal.
In this story, you would be represented by Elijah.
Ahab and Jezebel would be your persecutors and the prophets of
Baal and Asherah would represent the huge group of misled people
who oppose you in the homosexual adjenda.

Verse 18….
Elijah speaks clearly even though his words condemn Ahab. We see
that Elijah speaks with power and authority…not using words to
soften anything…just the plain Truth (as you do Dr. Lively)

Verse 22….
Elijah believes he is the only one who believes as he does….I am
sure you have felt that way on occasion as the church of Christ
has been not vocal against this agenda (I believe due to fear of
If you are familiar with Richard Wurmbrand, many pastors,
when presented with an opportunity
to speak against Hitler’s plans, did not, because they were
afraid. Only Pastor Wurmbrand openly opposed him.
You seem to be a lone voice (albeit a courageous one for
which we are thankful). So…it is Elijah against 950 + Ahab and
Jezebel….doesn’t it seem that way today?

Verse 28…
We see the foolishness of the false prophets in the continuing of
hoping their god would answer
and even cutting themselves (self destruction) rather than admit
that their gods didn’t exist.

Chapter 19 verse 3….Elijah was afraid of Jezebel’s threat. So
afraid that he wanted to quit. If I were in your position, I know
those thoughts would come to me.

Verse 19:13
From here on we see the outcome of Elijah (God cares for him and
grants his wish to quit along with appointing a successor)…..he
gets the opportunity to learn of and spend time with God.
AND We see the outcome of his enemies….

Chapter 22:37
Both Ahab & Jezebel are killed and the dogs lick up their blood.
“It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living

A promise verse for you….fits perfectly
Hebrews 10:32-36
“Remember those earlier days after you had received the light,
when you stood your ground in a great contest in the face of
suffering. Sometimes you were publicly exposed to insult and
persecution…you sympathized with those in prison and joyfully
accepted the confiscation of your property, because you knew that
you yourselves had better and lasting possessions. So do not
throw away your confidence. It will be richly rewarded. You need
to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will
receive what he has promised”.

May Jesus continue to bless you, your family, and your ministry!

King Obama has NO Legal Authority Over the Church

One week from today on June 15th 2015, the world will celebrate the 800 year anniversary of the Magna Charta, the “Great Charter of Liberties” which the Archbishop of Canterbury and the medieval Barons of England famously forced King John to sign in the fields at Runnymede, June 15, 1215 near Windsor (which castle still houses the British monarchy). Importantly, the first priority of this venerable charter was the recognition of the sovereignty of the Christian church:

“[1] In the first place we grant to God and confirm by this our present charter for ourselves and our heirs in perpetuity that the English Church is to be free and to have all its rights fully and its liberties entirely. We furthermore grant and give to all the freemen of our realm for ourselves and our heirs in perpetuity the liberties written below to have and to hold to them and their heirs from us and our heirs in perpetuity.”

As I wrote previously in my essay The Death of Human Rights, that first principle of the Magna Charta survived nearly eight centuries — until it was effectively neutralized and superseded by so-called “gay rights” in the body of UK laws known collectively as “Sexual Orientation Regulations” (SORs) http://www.scottlively.net/2012/12/10/the-death-of-human-rights/

These SORs are indeed like open sores on the body politic, and are increasingly used to punish and suppress public expressions of Biblical truth about homosexuality and related perversions, as in the case of preacher Dale McAlpine:


The Magna Charta (or Carta, both spellings are correct), is heralded as the cornerstone of modern human rights law, and indeed was a legal milestone of enormous significance. But there is a much greater foundation-stone beneath the Magna Charta, the Holy Bible, upon which all human rights ultimately rest.

It was no accident that King John was called to account by the Archbishop of Canterbury, for while it was the English Barons whose grievances forced the issue, it was the church which held the independent legal power to force the change. That’s because from the earliest days of western legal history there has always been a “Separation of Church and State,” meaning that the king and the church occupy separate and independent spheres of power and authority within the larger society.

When the legitimate grievances of English Barons were disregarded by the Court of Law (the realm of King John), they appealed to the Court of Equity (the realm of the church)


This separation of powers goes all the way back to the time of Moses and the Biblical “Cities of Refuge,” under the control of the Levitical Priests, where an accused murderer could flee for sanctuary pending a trial to determine his guilt or innocence (Numbers 35:9-28).

The concept of law vs. equity was central to common law jurisprudence and survives even to this day in the U.S. courts, though few understand its roots. Here’s a simple explanation of it http://patch.com/florida/templeterrace/court-of-law-vs-court-of-equity-why-it-matters-to-you-9. Here is a more substantial treatise


Classic film buffs will recognize this church/state separation in the story of Quasimodo, the Hunchback of Notre Dame, safe only so long as he remained in the cathedral, but subjected to the lash and pillory under the King’s law when he ventured out of his “city of sanctuary” for the distressed damsel, Esmeralda.

And, of course, the concept of “sanctuary cities” has been recently misapplied by the ever lawless Obama administration and co-conspirator Democrat city mayors to shield illegal aliens from deportation. But I digress…

Importantly, like the Magna Charta, the Bill of Rights of the United States Constitution also sets as its first principle the sovereignty of the Christian church (as indeed “religion“ was largely synonymous with “Christian denomination“ to the drafters):

“Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof….” states the First Amendment.

And importantly, here in the United States as in Europe, it is the redefinition of various sexual perversions as “human rights” that threatens true human rights as understood from the earliest beginnings of human rights jurisprudence. I summarized this history in 2006 in the Riga Declaration on Religious Freedom, Family Values and Human Rights here:


I am writing this article to remind all of us that the church is and has always been legally free from the control of Kings and Presidents and remains so today. There has been lots of talk lately from the reprobate left to the effect that churches should “lose their tax exempt status” if they refuse to “marry” homosexuals after the Supreme Court rules such unions to be constitutionally protected later this month (as many, including this writer, assume will occur).

However, neither King Obama, nor Congress, nor the United States Supreme Court, nor the UK, nor the EU, nor any human government, has the legal authority to strip the church of its rights and liberties. She is a separate sovereign subject to the Law of God, not the rule of man. The government did not “give” tax exemption to the church, it was and is hers by right, as is the power and duty to reject the redefinition of God’s institution of marriage.

And as a sovereign, these rights are for her inalienable wherever she operates under the legitimate unction of God on behalf of His Kingdom anywhere in this world. This was true before the Magna Charta acknowledged it in 1215 and it is true today and tomorrow irrespective of the opinion of any earthly ruler.

Obama Orchestrated Ukraine Coup to Re-Start Cold War and Prevent Russia from Leading Global Revolt Against LGBT Agenda

I have come to believe that Obama orchestrated the Ukraine coup to re-start the cold war to prevent Russia from leading a global revolt against his most sacred cow, the LGBT agenda. While there were clearly important geo-political factors in Obama’s decision to initiate regime change in Ukraine, I am convinced that the primary impetus was to nip opposition to the international LGBT political steamroller in the bud. I have written about that topic here:


Now comes evidence that Obama pal George Soros (funder of the Marxist law firm suing me for “Crimes Against Humanity” for preaching against homosexuality in Uganda) is a key puppet master in the Ukraine civil war, something I have publicly surmised without proof, until now:


Unfortunately, Obama’s strategy has worked and Russia has been forced from its former trajectory toward global cooperation with the west into an increasingly adversarial posture as Obama and the GOP Establishment Neo-Cons (united by perversion) continue to portray Russia as a pariah state while simultaneously attempting “regime change“ within its borders.

I believe a consequence of the “punish Russia” strategy is (dangerously for Israel) the transformation of Iran into the key player of the Middle East and the US has been forced to become a suitor (e.g. the sweetheart nuke deal) to our “former” arch-enemy in an attempt to thwart the strengthening of Russian/Iranian relations as Russia turns eastward away from the cold shoulder of the west. And, of course, (dangerously for us) Russian/Chinese relations have warmed considerably for the same reason.

I place the blame for this disturbing transformation squarely at the feet of Obama, whose allegiance to the LGBT agenda supersedes all other concerns, even the very real and growing risk of nuclear war.

I still believe that Russia offers an albeit imperfect model for the west on standing up to the Cultural Marxists but with the US push toward revival of the cold war, the incessant anti-Russian propaganda in the western media, and Russia’s increasing political shift to the east, I hold less hope for an international Russian-led cultural revolution in family values.

Ironically, however, if any hope remains, it may be kept alive by Ukraine, itself. As an astute political observer of my acquaintance recently noted, Kiev thought the West offered them bread but instead gave them LGBT propaganda. Now Ukrainians are protesting in the streets against the “gay” agenda.

Obama might yet fail in poisoning the western world against Russia, as he has failed in so many areas of foreign policy. I for one would like to see a restoration of the cooperative trends we saw in US/Russian relations before Obama decided to sabotage them, and in the aftermath of that failure I think unity on family values would go a long way toward healing the rift he has exacerbated between Russia and Ukraine and toward weakening the US/EU perversion agenda in the rest of Eastern Europe and the Baltics.

What God Thinks of Bruce Jenner

The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are an abomination unto the LORD thy God.  Deuteronomy 22:5

To which truth I add the following observation:

Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner is no more an actual woman than Star Trek’s Michael Dorn is an actual Klingon.

Transvestite’s Sick Prank on Girl Not the Worst

A Cambodian TV show played a sick joke on a young teen girl by promising to reunite her with her long-lost Mom, but when the time care for the reunion , her “Mom” turned out to be a male transvestite dressed up like a woman.


People around the globe are rightfully expressing anger and disgust at this heartless exploitation of a child, yet a far-worse mistreatment of children occurs daily in the western world in the travesty called “Gay Adoption.” 13-year-old Autumn Allen got to go home after being the butt of a sick joke on that show but thousands of children placed with false homosexual “families” through adoption have no choice at all. The joke’s on them — for life.

This teachable moment is sponsored by DefendtheFamily.com, urging you to protect children from exploitation by the LGBT movement by opposing “Gay Marriage” and “Gay Adoption” by every legal means.

PS.  “A woman shall not wear man’s clothing, nor shall a man put on a woman’s clothing; for whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD your God.”  Deuteronomy 22:5

Report from the Court

Scott at Restrain Judges Presser

I’ve had a busy month standing up for authentic marriage and the natural family, publishing a series of essays (linked below) and working in coalition with other pro-family leaders on the Restrain the Judges Project under the leadership of Dr. Steve Holze of Conservative Republicans of Texas and project initiator (and human dynamo) Janet Porter of Faith2Action.

On Monday the 27th, our coalition held a press conference on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, DC that a drew a lot of media and a large crowd of observers.

My comments at the press conference were related to a Motion for Recusal drafted by attorneys for Dr. Holze that are expected to be filed soon by one or more parties. Contrary to news reports I did not personally draft the Motion nor will I be filing it myself because I have no standing in the case to do so. However I fully support the Motion and recusal has been my personal emphasis in the national public debate regarding the so-called “gay marriage” cases before the court. Since February I have been publicly insisting that Justices Ginsberg and Kagan have an ethical duty to recuse themselves because they have each officiated at homosexual “wedding” ceremonies, in Ginsberg’s case at the Supreme Court itself.

My comments on recusal led the news story by The Hill, one of the most read and respected media outlets inside the Beltway.


Following is my two-minute commentary which I delivered at the press conference:

A motion will shortly be filed with the Supreme Court calling for the recusal of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Justice Elena Kagan.

Impartiality is the bedrock principle of judicial ethics that has been painstaking preserved throughout the history of this court.

Justices Ginsberg and Kagan, knowing full well that unique legal issues regarding the definition of marriage would soon come before them, deliberately officiated at so-called homosexual wedding ceremonies, creating not merely the appearance of bias, but an actual and blatant conflict of interest.

Indeed, in my personal view they have committed an unparalleled breach of judicial ethics by elevating the importance of their own favored political cause of “gay rights” above the integrity of the court and our nation.

Quoting now from the Motion:

“Due process requires a neutral and detached judge. A hearing before a biased judge is structural error that is not subject to harmless error analysis. See Tumey v. Ohio 273 U.S. 510, 535 (1927) (noting that every litigant has ‘the right to have an impartial judge’). Justices Ginsberg and Kagan have personally and publicly engaged in extrajudicial conduct that dramatically endorses the legal recognition that petitioners seek to have nationalized in these cases. Their vividly demonstrated favorable disposition towards the petitioners ‘is so extreme as to display clear inability to render fair judgment’ Liteky v. United States, 510 U.S. 540, 551 (1994).”

There are three possible remedies for this ethical breach:

1. The first and best is the voluntary recusal of the Justices themselves, following the example of Justices Bryer, Scalia and Thomas in prior cases.

2. Involuntary recusal by order of this court.

3. Removal of jurisdiction over marriage from the court by the United States Congress pursuant to its authority under Article 3, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution.

Marriage is not the creation of secular government, it is the ordinance of Almighty God to whom the Supreme Court, the Congress and even our President are accountable. This coalition calls on all branches of our government to acknowledge this fact and Restrain the Judges from redefining marriage.


On the evening of the 27th I appeared on the Alan Colmes show to discuss my article “Time for the Pitchforks and Torches on Marriage Issue,” which was actually an appeal to liberals and progressives to change their position on “gay rights” and join conservatives in working to protect the natural family, which I argue is “the eco-system of humanity” while same-sex unions are artificial and counterfeit alternatives equivalent to artificial vs. natural foods and artificial vs. natural medicines. It was my best-ever debate/conversation with Alan of several appearances over the past few years.

On the 28th, Anne and I joined the crowd at the courthouse briefly to take some pictures and again pray for divine intervention, before driving home last night.

It’s all in God’s hands.
