The Anti-Russian Human Rights Watch Video is a Hoax

I have just two words in response the Human Rights Watch video of supposed homosexual harassment in Russia: Matthew Shepard.

To this day, despite the fact that a major federal law is named after him and untold thousands of pubic school children have been (and are still being) brainwashed in “gay” propaganda through a play about his life, the majority of Americans still do not know that the Matthew Shepard hate crime story was a hoax. That’s because (with rare exceptions) homosexual political activists and their “progressive” allies sitting in most of the seats of power in the mainstream media are LIARS.

What’s that, America? This is the first you’ve about the Shepard hoax? What a surprise. You mean to say that your trusted mainstream news sources didn’t tell you that last September a “gay” journalist exposed the Matthew Shepard “hate crime” murder as an incident of “gay on gay” violence by poor Matt’s former sex partners in a drug deal gone bad? Hmmm.

Maybe the Shepard hoax was such a rare incident, and so damaging to the otherwise worthy effort of protecting “gays” from violence that we should forgive the media for suppressing the story? After all, it is certainly true that homosexuals as a class truly are victims of terrible persecution and violence. Aren’t they?

Let’s look at some of the most recent examples. We all know, of course, that the most hateful “anti-gay” regime in the world is Uganda. We know that because the media tells us so. We know especially about Ugandan “gay rights” leader David Kato, murdered in broad daylight in Kampala by a vicious homophobe inspired by the “hateful” preaching of yours truly.

But, no, after a week of world-wide hysterical hand-wringing and finger-pointing by the leftist media and “human rights” groups, the Ugandan police caught the killer, who turned out to be a male prostitute, Enoch Sydney Nsubuga whom Kato bailed out of jail to be his live-in lover and houseboy. http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5ihVH6Ahnbnhdo3CqrEDT3mCBknKg?docId=CNG.9057dbf4f3db02f92ea39216b26eb623.8a1

Young Enoch confessed to bashing in Kato’s head with a hammer and is now serving 30 years in a Ugandan prison.

So Kato was just another super-high-profile “gay” murder that turns out to be “gay on gay” violence. Didn’t see that follow-up coverage in your trusted mainstream news sources? Don’t take it so hard. The Marxist law firm suing me for “Crimes Against Humanity” (based largely on the Kato case) didn’t include those inconvenient facts in their complaint, either. If the urgency of the “gay rights” cause can justify lawyers bound by strict rules of ethics to withhold these facts from a U.S. federal judge, what do you expect as a mere member of the pubic from journalists with no ethics at all?

Speaking of hammers, they seem to be the weapon of choice for “gay” men who want to murder their lovers. Last week the Daily Mail reported on the 1986 murder of President Obama’s high-school drug dealer and party-pal “Gay Ray” Boyer by his live-in rent boy…with a hammer. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2547667/EXCLUSIVE-Obamas-high-school-pot-dealer-future-president-thanked-good-times-yearbook-beaten-death-gay-lover-fights-flatulence-drugs.html

But I digress.

Are there any more examples of persecution of homosexuals in the news lately? Well, there’s the case of that lesbian waitress who was the object of a cruel message instead of a tip. But no, that turned out to be a hoax. Or that guy in, where was it? Montana? That “gay” guy that got beat up outside the bar? We all saw the pictures cause that story got major coverage. But no, that turned out to be a hoax also.

Wait, what about that famous “gay” celebrity journalist, Carlos Castro, murdered in his hotel room in New York a few years ago? Oops, that was another “gay on gay” killing, this time (close your ears men) due to blood loss after castration with a corkscrew. Ouch! (I guess there weren’t any hammers around.) http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1352775/Celebrity-journalist-Carlos-Castro-murdered-castrated-corkscrew-NY-hotel.html

The “gay” killer of “gay” fashion celebrity Gianni Versace (Elton John’s pal), used a hammer, but not on Versace. He shot Versace but killed several other “gay” friends with a hammer. But again, I digress (It’s hard to maneuver around all these heaps of corpses in the “gay” community). http://www.nydailynews.com/news/justice-story/justice-story-gianni-versace-article-1.1409719

I could go on and on but you get the point. I’ve got a huge file on these cases. Hundreds of them, some of which, including some mentioned above are archived on my website under “Hate Crimes and Fraud” here: http://www.defendthefamily.com/pfrc/newsarchives.php?topic=21

One of my favorite “gay” hate-crime hoaxes was the case of Azalea Cooley back in Portland, Oregon in 1992 when I was the spokesman for Ballot Measure 9 (which would have amended the state constitution to stop the “gay” agenda there).

Poor Azalea, a wheelchair-bound Black lesbian, was subjected to a vicious months-long hate campaign that included 21 cross-burnings on her front lawn… until a couple of rogue cops set up their own private sting and caught Ms. Cooley walking out her own front door in the dead of night with a wooden cross and a can of gasoline. Which, of course, didn’t stop the No on 9 campaign (one week later) from conducting their massive “March Against Hate” parade from Azalea’s neighborhood to downtown Portland, with their “hate-crimes” poster-child Azalea leading the parade… in her wheelchair!! (You couldn’t make this stuff up.)

No one, of course, asked Azalea’s roommate (who worked for the Sheriff’s Department), or Police Chief Tom Potter (a No on 9 spokesman whose daughter was an open lesbian on the force) why law enforcement could never catch the “hate criminals” prior to the rogue cops’ sting. Potter went on to become Mayor of Portland while I continued to be accused by the Oregon media of “creating a climate of hate and fear” for saying “gay rights” activists are liars. Go figger.

Last Fall, on behalf of pro-family advocates here in the United States and Canada, I sent a letter to President Vladimir Putin thanking his government for passing a law protecting Russian children from “gay” propaganda. In that letter I offered this warning:

In readying your society to recognize and counter the efforts of the militant gay movement it is important to understand that their propaganda and policies adhere invariably to the narrative that all disapproval of homosexuality leads inevitably to hatred, violence and murder of homosexuals. All of the pro-homosexual policies in the United States and Europe rest on this unstated and unchallenged but fictional premise. Thus, the homosexualist movement is not simply seeking social tolerance, or acceptance, but political power and control. They want the power to stamp out all disapproval of homosexuality in your society and to compel every citizen (especially the youth) to embrace the view that homosexual conduct is good and normal….In the coming months and years Russia and Her people will be increasingly portrayed by emotion laden and abusive hyperbole as bigoted haters, intent on exterminating homosexuals.

The Human Rights Watch video, released to coincide with the opening of he Sochi Olympics is fulfillment of my prophecy. I predict more will follow.

I have one final, very important point to make in this article. I am NOT saying all of the incidents described the video are fakes.

While it is true that “gay” activists are masters of public deception, and their ranks include not just veteran political propagandists but also billionaires like George Soros and movie producer David Geffin — with the capability of staging any possible scenario flawlessly — I believe some of the incidents depicted on the film are probably real.

But that begs the question, who are these perps? Q. What sort of men go out of their way to find and harass effeminate “gay” men on the public streets? A. They are, literally, NAZIs! Ultra-Macho Nationalists, of which Russia has many. Q. And who makes up a significant part of the Nationalist movement everywhere in the world through all of modern history? A. Masculine oriented homosexual men of the very same sort that created the Nazi Party of Germany.

As “gay” journalist Johann Hari (another rare truth-teller) admitted in his Huffington Post article, “The Strange, Strange Story of the Gay Fascists”: This is a taboo topic for a gay left-wing man like me to touch, but there has always been a weird, disproportionate overlap between homosexuality and fascism….With the exception of Jean-Marie Le Pen, all the most high-profile fascists in Europe in the past thirty years have been gay…. Gay rights campaigner Peter Tatchell [explains] …‘They are going for hyper-masculinity, the most extreme possible way of being a man….These troubled men have a simple belief in their minds: ‘Straight men are tough. Queers are weak. Therefore if I’m tough I can’t be queer.’ [Bashing the Femmes] is a desperate way of proving their manhood.’”

Read the whole article, it’s priceless: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/johann-hari/the-strange-strange-story_b_136697.html

Indeed, even the ultimate “gay” clam to victim status — persecution by Nazis under the Third Reich — was almost entirely Butch/Femme “gay on gay” harassment. See http://www.scottlively.net/the-pink-swastika-5th-edition/

So in conclusion, I say the Human Rights Watch video is just another piece of deceptive Machiavellian “gay” propaganda, offered to prove the completely false narrative that all disapproval of homosexuality leads to hatred and murder. Whether or not any parts of the video are unstaged, the product as a whole is perpetrating a hoax.

Do not be fooled. The “gays” are not the victims, at least not as a class. In stories like this they are usually the bullies beating up each other (or themselves) on and off camera, sometimes by consent, to dupe the public into granting them collective “victim status,” with all of the extensive social and political benefits that entails.

If the producers of this video really want to depict violence against “gays” they should turn their cameras inward.

The painful case of Pastor Scott Lively, homophobe to the world

Friends,

This article came out today in the Washington Post. www.washingtonpost.com/news/volokh-conspiracy/wp/2014/02/03/the-painful-case-of-pastor-scott-lively-homophobe-to-the-world/?wp_login_redirect=0

I am pleased to note that I have been promoted to “’perhaps the most extreme’ of a network of U.S. evangelicals” but that designation was by a different writer in the National Journal here

www.nationaljournal.com/gay-washington/evangelicals-are-winning-the-gay-marriage-fight-in-africa-and-russia-20140123

I have replied to the WP piece below (you should read that article first).

With the Sochi Olympics gearing up, I expect there will be many news articles bashing me as a symbol of resistance to the global “gay” agenda.
Now that I’ve reached a place in my personal spiritual walk where I don’t fear the persecution and don’t really care about the opinions of the world and the man-pleasers within the church, I now actually enjoy the battle for truth. All Glory to Our God who gives boldness in place of timidity and peace in place of worry.

Why do the Heathen rage? In part for our amusement :)

Dr. Scott Lively

Just a short note from the “fever swamps.” The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion was a vicious piece of false propaganda designed to harm the Jews based on irrational hatred against them. The facts I relate about homosexuality and the “gay” movement are all true and well documented, some by our own Centers for Disease Control. And my purpose is not to harm homosexuals but to prevent them from co-opting mainstream family-based culture which will not survive transformation to the sexual anarchy model of the “gay” subculture.

Ironically, at the time the Protocols were “discovered” and being disseminated across Europe the Jews of Germany were engaged in a Scott Lively-style attack on the homosexual movement. Jewish moralists led by newspaper mogul Maximilian Harden exposed a homosexual cabal in control of the young Kaiser leading to a huge national scandal and very public trials. Writing in the 1940s German Jewish writer Samuel Igra postulated that this public shaming of the power-hungry “gays” was the initial cause of Adolf Hitler’s hatred of the Jews, since Hitler was by numerous accounts a male prostitute on the streets of Vienna and Munich during those days and likely identified with the defendants. It’s at least plausible.

In any case, Rauch is drawing a common false comparison between Jews and homosexuals. Being ethnically Jewish is an immutable status like being African or Chinese. Each of these is morally neutral. Homosexuality, on the other hand is a form of voluntary sexual conduct with serious moral, sociological and public health implications. It is irrational to discriminate on the basis of race or skin color. It is irrational NOT to discriminate on the basis of harmful sexual conduct.

In closing, I guess we’ll find out just how devoted Mr. Rauch is to free speech by whether he arranges for me to have a chance for rebuttal other than this note in the comments section of his attack piece. This is my formal request.

TOP SEVEN REASONS WHY I AM PRO-LIFE

I, Dr. Scott Lively, am Pro-Life…

1. Because God wants me to be:

Deuteronomy 30:19 I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live.

2. Because science proves that every baby is a unique human being from conception.

“To accept the fact that after fertilization has taken place a new human has come into being is no longer a matter of taste or opinion … it is plain experimental evidence. Each individual has a very neat beginning, at conception.” Dr. Jerome Lejeune, Father of Modern Genetics.

3. Because the deliberate choice of abortion is just another name for murder.

According to The Model Penal Code of The American Law Institute, murder is

“purposefully or knowingly killing another human being.”

4. Because American law and government rest upon a pro-life premise.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” The Declaration of Independence, emphasis added.

The remaining three items are statements of self-evident truth.

5. Because legalized abortion robs fathers of their fundamental rights as parents, and their Biblical authority as heads of their households.

6. Because women are degraded and harmed by the choice to kill their own children.

7. Because even in the case of rape or incest, a child must never be required to pay for the sins of his father.

Danger Lurking in Duck Dynasty Debacle

Memo to Pro-Family Leaders and Activists

The backlash against GLAAD and A&E over the firing of Phil Robertson while encouraging, has also exposed a serious danger lurking in the way some conservatives are looking to homosexuals for support for our position. Laura Ingram had some “gay” writer on her show, and let him get away with characterizing Phil Robertson‘s comments as bigotry. Lots of pro-family people are quoting Brandon Ambrosino’s article in Time http://ideas.time.com/2013/12/19/the-duck-dynasty-fiasco-says-more-about-our-bigotry-than-phils/and open lesbian Camille Paglia has also written a widely distributed piece.

I’m not against these people speaking their minds just because I oppose their lifestyle, but I am against the phenomenon of pro-family people thinking they are bolstering our arguments by using unrepentant “gays” as sources.

First, we never hear from these supposedly “conservative” or “moderate” homosexuals unless it’s to do damage control to protect their agenda (which is to fully legitimize homosexuality in society). We saw the same thing occur in 2012 when the “liberal” homosexual attack on Chic-Fil-A in 2012 sparked a national backlash. Whenever the more progressive wing of the “gay” movement goes too fast and threatens the success of the LGBT marketing strategy, the “conservatives” jump into the spotlight to soothe the public nerves. Why should we help them accomplish that?

Second, we need to recognize that the supposed “liberal” vs. “conservative” polarity in the homosexual alliance is a cleverly crafted illusion to infiltrate the pro-family movement. Of course there are some genuine political and ideological differences among homosexuals, but do not deceived, these cosmetic differences are all subsumed within the common goal of conquest of Christian civilization.

We must remember that the “gay” movement is a single, united cult of cultural Marxists, following the Hegelian thesis-antithesis-synthesis dialectic.

Our thesis is the truth of the Bible: homosexuality is condemned by God as an abomination.

Their anti-thesis is that homosexuality is good and normal.

Any “synthesis” of these two contradictory premises is abandonment of the thesis and an outright rejection of the truth of God. “What fellowship hath Christ with Belial?” asked Paul rhetorically in 2 Corinthians 6:15.

Our embrace of people like Tammy Bruce and Camille Paglia (as brilliant as the latter may be to quote on feminist issues) is the “synthesis” phase of the Hegelian dialectic and poisonous to our theology and agenda.

The rise of “conservative” homosexuals is a ruse to sucker us into endorsing “gay rights” in a slightly different form. Think about it for a moment. If these people were truly on our side politically or ideologically they would consider their homosexual inclinations a private matter and a challenge to be overcome, and never publicly identify as “gay.”

Lets have compassion for homosexuals but never align ourselves with them politically or give them a platform to legitimize their lifestyle. Anyone who self-identifies as a unrepentant homosexual is an enemy of the truth, no matter how “conservative” they may sound. Love them as lost sheep, but hate the false premise they live their lives by.

Remember, the Marxist dialectic was taught as a dance to Soviet children: two steps forward, one step back equals a net gain of one step. The “progressive” homosexual agenda represents the two steps forward. The “conservative” homosexual “counter-faction” is one step back. When we endorse “conservative gays” we are helping the entire “gay” movement to advance at the expense of the Bible. Lets not dance with the devil!

Time for Pro-Family Push-Back in 2014!

Those of us who still hold a Biblical worldview have been heartened by recent global events affirming normalcy. The Australian high court struck down “gay marriage” as unconstitutional, the Indian high court re-criminalized sodomy, and Russian President Putin declared his nation to be the new moral compass of the world for championing family values. Although Ukraine’s highly controversial decision to postpone (or cancel) a step into the fold of the European Union has been framed in economic terms, there is little doubt that the Ukrainian disdain for the sexual perversion agenda of the EU has played a major role. And in tiny Jamaica, a push to decriminalize sodomy (driven in large part by the U.S. State Department), has run into so much opposition that the pro-family Jamaicans just might win that battle.

There is no question that among the major western powers 2013 has been the best year for the homosexual movement since its defeat of the American Psychiatric Association (APA) in 1973. The APA was the first of the big secular institutions to fall to the homosexual movement after its agenda was militarized in the Stonewall Riot of 1968 (the day they tried to burn police officers alive in the Stonewall bar on Christopher Street in NYC for attempting to arrest an under-age drag queen who serviced the homosexual men there). Today that incident is celebrated annually as “Gay Pride Day.”

That was the day the “gay” movement abandoned its previous goal of achieving “the right to be left alone” (tolerance) and embraced the new goal of total conquest of Christian civilization being advocated by the radical Frankfort School of cultural Marxists led by Herbert Marcuse. Marxism has, of course, always been about destroying civilization to clear the way for the Marxists to build a supposed socialist utopia on the ashes. Like Balaam in the Bible (Numbers 22 and Revelation 2:14), the Frankfort school taught that taking down civilization could be accomplished more rapidly through a focus on social rather than economic issues (i.e., encouraging sexual immorality in society). Marcuse saw homosexuals as the perfect agents of this change, as indeed they were.

In the US, 2013 saw the completion of a 40-year LGBT campaign to conquer American society and culture. 40 years happens to be the Biblical number of testing (just as 13 is the number of rebellion against God) but in practical terms it was the length of time the “gays” needed to subjugate all of the secular institutions in America. The very last to fall was, of course, the Boy Scouts of America. Tellingly, the new homosexual-controlled BSA has just elected as its first president, the reprobate Robert Gates, who, as Obama’s Defense Secretary, homosexualized the next-most-recent “gay” trophy, the United States Military, following the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”

To those who would suggest that the Republican Party remains a secular institution still committed to defending the natural family, let me remind you that it was the Republicans, including libertarian darling Ron Paul, who willingly provided the votes to hand over the military to the Sodomites. And even Ted Cruz voted recently to affirm the first openly homosexual judge to the federal bench. It‘s my theory that the seismic shift of FOX News to a more “gay-friendly” posture over the past 18 months or so is designed to give cover to the now solidly pro-homosexual Republican establishment. (The GOP elite just can’t be too open about it because the grassroots is still strongly pro-family.)

Yet, despite the dire picture in the west (lets not forget that 2013 also saw “gay marriage” adopted in England and France), the culture war is not over, even in America. There remains one institution still standing against the “gay” agenda: the church of Jesus Christ (in alliance with Torah-faithful Jews).

Now that the people with cloudy secular thinking and ambiguous motives are off the battlefield, we can all finally recognize the culture war for what is it: a battle between Good and Evil. The still sizable remnant of the Christian church stands for the goodness of God, represented in the blessing of authentic marriage and the natural family, the sanctity of life and a civilization grounded in Biblical truth. The homosexual movement stands for the agenda of the evil one, represented in counterfeit marriage and corrupt notions of family, the sublimation of the needs of children to hedonistic selfishness, and a degeneration of civilization into moral anarchy.

Yes, 2013 was the year of the LGBT agenda. But I‘m predicting 2014 will be the Year of the Pro-Family Push-Back!

The homosexual movement may have built up a formidable army of activists and an enormous war machine over the past forty years, but even at its best it is no match for an awakened Christian church. And for the first time in my 25 years of service as a Christian social activist I believe the church has been awakened. It hasn’t buckled on its armor. It’s not even standing on its feet yet. But the church of Jesus Christ — the universal body of Bible-believing Christians spanning every denomination and confession — finally has its eyes open and is aware that the enemy has breached the outer walls.

I think the shock that broke the peace of slumber occurred back in 2012 when Chic-Fil A executive Dan Cathy made a public statement in defense of authentic marriage, and the “gays” dramatically over-reacted. In response to Cathy’s pro-marriage statement, the mayors of “gay” stronghold cities Chicago, Boston and Philadelphia announced they would not allow Chic-Fil-A restaurants to be built in those cities. The church suddenly snorted and got up on one elbow: “Huh? What did they say?” For a brief moment the mask was pulled off and Christian America got to see the real face of homo-fascism. They didn’t like it!

The homosexual political machine, which had hummed along so perfectly for so long had made a major gaffe. They turned up the heat under the frog in the water pot too fast and he jumped out. Across the nation, such a wave of support arose for Chic Fil A, that it stunned even the pro-family leaders who had been praying for something like this to happen.

Homosexual leaders moved rapidly to repair the damage, distancing themselves from the Mayors’ ill-advised announcement, but it was too late. The giant settled back into the pillows but didn’t go back to sleep.

It was thus awake later in 2012 to see Southern Poverty Law Center supporter Floyd Lee Corkins attempt mass-murder against the Family Research Council, carrying a bag of Chic-Fil-A sandwiches to scatter among the corpses.

It was awake in June of 2013 when U.S. Supreme Court Justice and long-time homosexualist Anthony Kennedy released the opinion striking down the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

It was awake in September when a “gay” journalist exposed the Matthew Shepard “hate crime” narrative as the biggest hoax of the modern age.

And it was still awake later in the year when Christian small business owners across the nation began facing criminal penalties for refusing to bake cakes and print wedding announcements for “gay” provocateurs who deliberately targeted them for punishment in the wake of sexual orientation “anti-discrimination” policies being adopted in their cities.

At the close of 2013 the Christian church is now wide awake and concerned. The giant is sitting up on the edge of the bed, ready to put on his shoes and go out to deal with this problem.

This article is a call to action to pro-family leaders and activists across America. We need to rally together to quickly arm and equip the giant. I will personally pursue three tactics to accomplish the goal and I invite you to join with me in encouraging the church to follow suit:

First, Reclaim the Rainbow. The rainbow belongs to God, not to the “gays.’” It is the symbol of His authority over creation in Revelation 6-9, and of His Glory in Ezekiel 1:28 and Revelation 4:3. The “gay’ movement is essence wrapping itself in God’s own cloak in an attempt to sanitize a lifestyle which cannot be sanitized. I am calling on every Christian church, ministry and activist to begin using the rainbow symbol (in conjunction with key scriptures) to reclaim the rainbow in a way that cannot be mistaken for support of the homosexual agenda — such as displaying a rainbow flag or bumper sticker bearing the legend “The Rainbow Belongs to God: Rev 6-9, 19” (linking, the story of the flood with the story of Sodom and Gomorrah as does the Bible). I assert no copyright of this idea or verbiage for anyone who wants to adopt it for the cause of Christ.

The church reclamation of the rainbow will not only prevent the name of God from being tied to sodomy (an essential goal in itself), it will throw the homosexual battalions into disarray. It will also force them to find a new battlefield flag to fight under, just as in the 1990s they were forced to abandon their first banner, the inverted pink triangle, after my book The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party (co-authored with Orthodox Jewish researcher Kevin Abrams) exposed their efforts to create a false “Gay Holocaust” as a symbolic rallying-point for their national movement.

Second, Reclaim the Constitution. The church must be educated to recognize that anti-discrimination policies based on sexual orientation, aka “sexual orientation regulations” (SORs) are the seed that contain the entire tree of the homosexual agenda with all of its poisonous fruit. Far from being a benign civil rights policy (a Shield) to prevent unfair discrimination in employment and housing, SORs are a devilish scheme to subvert the constitution and give militant LGBT activists a Sword to attack Christians through private lawsuits and public “hate crime” enforcement.

SORs are used routinely today to give special rights to homosexuals and transsexuals that trump the First Amendment. The next step in the SOR strategy is to strip the churches of tax-exempt status, force pastors to perform homosexual “marriages,” and criminalize the Bible as “hate speech.”

Churches must step up now to push back the SORs by 1) opposing them in jurisdictions where they have not yet been adopted, and 2) by amending them in every place where they have already become law (including local and state governments, quasi-government agencies, public schools and universities, for-profit and non-profit corporations, etc.). These existing SORs can be easily neutralized by amending them with a First Amendment Supremacy Clause, to wit:

In no circumstance shall sexual orientation regulations supersede the First Amendment rights of individuals, churches and religious organizations to freedom of speech and the free exercise of religion.

“For the purpose of this amendment, religious organizations are those whose policies or culture are substantially influenced by religious values, including but not limited to Christian bookstores, adoption agencies, hospitals, businesses, social organizations and student clubs on college campuses.”

Once again, I assert no copyright of this idea or verbiage for anyone who wants to adopt it for the cause of Christ.

Third, and most importantly, Reclaim the Bible. This imminent, perhaps final battle for the heart and soul of America, largely comes down to a contest over the Word of God. Over the past 40 years the homosexual movement has produced an entire school of Biblical revisionists who have invented a new doctrine called “Gay Theology.” It provides the twisted theological underpinning for the “Welcoming and Affirming” movement in the so-called “mainstream” denominations, and for the more recent “Emergent Church” movement among evangelicals. “Gay Theology” is the heresy of our time and must be effectively countered.

In 2014, I will be working to encourage the church in America to reacquaint itself with the clear Biblical teaching on homosexuality that has been largely self-censored due to the pressure of political-correctness in the popular culture. Now that the giant has awakened and realizes there is a very real threat to Christian civilization presented by the homosexual movement, individual churches will be increasing more inclined to revisit the teaching of the Bible on the topic. I will be referring pastors and church leaders to the work of scholars such as Rob Gagnon and James DeYoung, as well as to concise Genesis-to-Revelation summaries such as my video The Global Threat of Homosexuality at http://www.massresistance.org/docs/issues/scott_lively/speech_011512.html

I confess that I’ve been increasingly pessimistic over the past few years, and downright discouraged a few times during the darkest days of 2013, but I have a very strong sense today that things have changed for the better for the pro-family movement, at least in the short term. I am very optimistic for our prospects in 2014. It’s time for some push-back!

Lively Asks Court of Appeals to Overrule Ponsor

Friends,

Yesterday my attorneys filed a special and little-used Writ of Mandamus with the Federal Court of Appeals, asking that it overrule Judge Ponsor’s denial of my Motion to Dismiss the frivolous SMUG lawsuit against me for alleged “Crimes against Humanity.   See the writ here: Writ of Mandamus

Senior litigation counsel Harry Mihet’s reasoning and articulation is again masterful and highly persuasive.  God has truly blessed me with a advocate equipped with great skill and intellect.

The writ is relatively short and straight to the point so I’ll let you read it for yourselves, but I’ll cite one paragraph here that sums up why I am in this suit:

“Few people would ever engage in the political process if the cost of doing so was having to defend through discovery and summary judgment a transnational crimes against humanity suit brought by their political adversaries. Here, this is SMUG’s admitted purpose in bringing this suit – to make it “too costly” for Lively and others to engage in speech and advocacy that offends SMUG.”

This lawsuit is harassment, pure and simple.

Blessings,

Pastor Scott Lively

“Gay Marriage” as a Sign of the End Times

Originally published September 15, 2011

Harold Camping was wrong about Judgment Day, but he was right that the rise of the homosexual movement is a sign of the end times.

We are probably all familiar with the oft-cited fact that the collapse of numerous civilizations prior to our own were heralded by a rise in sexual immorality, especially homosexuality.  That alone should alert us to the grave situation we find ourselves in today.  But there is a deeper spiritual significance beneath that statistic.  God has chosen rampant homosexuality to be a key warning sign for judgment of the world as a whole, and not just of individual nations.

Genesis is the book of beginnings which sets the tone and lays the foundation for all of our theology.  It is there in the first chapter that God establishes the “one flesh” standard for human sexuality which is lifetime, monogamous heterosexual marriage.  This isn’t just a guide for individual conduct, it is the essential bedrock of civilization.

Thus, the corruption of marriage was instrumental in bringing about the wickedness and violence that caused God to bring the flood upon the world.  Jesus warned that “as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. ‘For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark‘” (Matt. 24:37-38, referencing Gen 6-7).  Not only had marriage been corrupted, the people were so apathetic of that fact that they gave no credence to Noah’s warning that their sin would soon end in judgment.

Homosexuality is not mentioned specifically as an aspect of the pre-flood corruption, but we can assume that a society of men and women whose thoughts “were only evil continuously” (6:5) were involved in every form of sexual perversion.  And we have a clue in the story of Ham, who, after the flood, “looked upon his fathers nakedness” (9:22).  A school of Jewish tradition holds that Ham or his son Canaan engaged in some form of homosexual molestation of Noah.  Be that as it may, Noah then curses Ham “for what his youngest son had done to him” (v.24).  Canaan then migrates to the land that would bear his name, and his near descendants establish the infamous cities of Sodom and Gomorrah (13:7-13).

Genesis 19, of course, tells the story of God’s destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah with fire and brimstone, first revealing that the final act of wickedness of Sodom was the attempt by all of the men of the city “both young and old, all the people from every quarter” (19:4) to rape the two men (angels) who had come to rescue Lot.  This incident is far more than an interesting Bible story.  Look at it in context.  It is the ONLY incident of its kind in the Bible!  And it follows very soon after the flood.  Note that God’s wrath had not been triggered by Canaan’s nephew Nimrod’s more direct rebellion at Babel (10:9-10, 11:1-9), but was triggered by the sin of Sodom: the complete degeneration of the society into sexual perversion.

Notice also that it was wrath by fire!  Following the flood, in Chapter 9 God made an everlasting promise never again to destroy the earth by water, and said “I set my bow in the cloud and it shall be for a sign of a covenant between Me and the earth.”  Thereafter, fire was always the symbol and means of God’s wrath.  Indeed, Jude 1:7 reads “just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, since they in the same way as these indulged in gross immorality and went after strange flesh, are exhibited as an example in undergoing the punishment of eternal fire.”  The story of Sodom and Gomorrah IS the very example of the final judgment.  (See Revelation 20:10-15).  Or, as the Apostle Peter said “He condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly” (2 Peter 2:6).

Did you also catch the spiritual significance of the rainbow in this context?  Why has the homosexual movement chosen the rainbow as its symbol?  I think they are deliberately flaunting their sin under God’s nose while holding up the reminder that He promised not to destroy the earth by flood again.  They are proclaiming “See, God, you can’t stop us!” which was the exact sentiment expressed by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick when he signed the first “gay marriage“ policy in the nation into law: looking up at the sky he said something to the effect of “See,  nothing happened.”

The “gays” of course insist that Sodom was destroyed because of “inhospitality” not homosexuality, so they are completely blind to the deadly folly of flaunting “Gay Pride” under the rainbow banner.  As Isaiah put it “..they parade their sin like Sodom; they do not even conceal it.  Woe to them, for they have brought evil on themselves” (3:9).

(Interestingly, the rider of the ”white horse” of Revelation 6:2, assumed by Bible scholars to be the Antichrist on a campaign to deceive the world, has a “bow” in his hand, as he goes forth conquering.)

To the extent that Romans 1:18-32 can be viewed as prophecy (as well as instruction to the Roman believers of that day), homosexuality is given again as the sign of the end with its laundry list of evil attitudes and behaviors that define the “perilous times” of the final days.  The people are “given over to a depraved mind” as a final consequence of “suppressing the truth in unrighteousness” evidenced by the shameless exhibition of both male and female homosexuality (v.26-27).  God’s wrath is promised not just for the practice of those things by some, but because of the approval of them by society (v.32).

The prophetic significance of Romans 1 is enhanced by association with 2 Timothy 3:1-5 (the only other passage in scripture listing nearly identical examples of apostate conduct), which sets the “Last days” as the time in which these forms of behavior will abound.

I have made this point before, but it bears repeating.  Fifty years ago homosexuality was illegal throughout the entire world, except for Sweden which had decriminalized sodomy in 1938.  In the space of just half a century this tiny 1-3% of the population have made themselves a global political power with greater influence in the courtrooms and legislatures of the world than the Church of Jesus Christ.  This astonishing transformation surpasses that of Darwinism, Marxism, and even Islam in its speed and breadth of reach.  To my thinking, this can only have been accomplished by the god of this world (Satan, 2 Cor 4:4) who knows his time is short and is making his move.  What is more alarming is the shocking apathy of the church, which I take as a sign of the apostasy warned about by Jesus in Matt 24:12.  The “love of most” for the truth of God truly has grown cold.

Recently the State of New York legalized “gay marriage,” just in time for the “Gay Pride Parade” (that included many of NYC’s political elites), and for the first time, the United Nations officially declared homosexuality a “human right.”  I am finding triumphal emails in my in-box from homosexual activists, gloating over their latest victory.  In the past I would have found these irritating, but now they simply confirm my impression that the time is very short.  I believe it is the same triumphalism described in Revelation 11:7-10 upon the murder of God’s two witnesses:  “When they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up out of the abyss will make war with them, and overcome them and kill them. And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which mystically is called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified…And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them and celebrate; and they will send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth.”  Why is the great city (Jerusalem) mystically called Sodom in the final days?  I think because of the centrality of the spirit of sexual perversion in the Anti-Christ system.  What “torments” worldly people?  The simple truths of God.

As a final point, we are told in Ephesians 5:21-33 that the melding of a man and woman into one flesh through marriage is a mystery that explains the very relationship of Christ to his bride, the church.  Authentic marriage is thus central to the very order of creation and to prophecy.  Indeed, according to prophecy, the long age of humanity upon the earth culminates with the marriage feast of the Lamb following the great tribulation (Rev 19:5-9).  It is no wonder then that disrespect of marriage by society generally, and the emergence of the counterfeit “marriage” of homosexuals specifically, would define the era immediately preceding the end of the age.

Report from Moscow

Re-Christianized Russia Now Defending Biblical Values :)

Friends,

I am writing to you from Moscow (Russia, not Idaho) where I am on a one-week mission to bolster the Russian pro-family movement.  At the moment I am in my 9th floor hotel room overlooking the Moskva River in the heart of Moscow (Moskva).  It is a rainy, grey morning but the city is fully alive and awake, the roads choked with traffic (as bad as New York or L.A.).  It’s a very expensive city, so I am eating my breakfast of items from the grocery store rather than going down to the restaurant.  (I made the mistake of ordering lunch at the hotel restaurant on my first day without asking the price.  It was $65).

I arrived on the 14th and have been very busy since I touched down. On the 15th and 16th I participated in the planning meeting for the World Congress of Families VIII, which will take place September 2014 here in Moscow.  There were representatives from several countries, all there to help the Russian planning group to ensure their conference is a success.  About half the group was from the U.S., but Mexico, Spain, Italy, Serbia, Australia, New Zealand, Venezuela and France were also represented.  We dealt with logistics on the 15th and then on the 16th we visited the conference facilities.

The Kremlin complex is like an ancient walled city

The grand opening of the conference will actually be held at the Kremlin, the most prestigious venue in the nation.  We got a special group tour of the Kremlin, which is a surprisingly large complex surrounded by a medieval-style wall interspersed with towers.  Inside the grounds are also several Orthodox cathedrals, including the Archangel Michael Cathedral which houses the remains of all the Czars from 1340 to 1730.

Archangel Michael

The second and third days of WCFVIII will take place at Christ the Savior Cathedral, a stone’s throw from the Kremlin.  It is a gorgeous facility, rebuilt just 20 years ago to replace the ancient cathedral that had been destroyed by the communists during the time of the Soviet Union.

Americans tend to still equate Russia with communism, without realizing that Russia was a deeply Christian country until the communists swept into power by force and then kept an iron grip on the people through brutality.  Just as the “progressive” movement has done in the U.S., the “progressives” of the Soviet system  used their control of media, education and other key institutions to brainwash the children with communist propaganda to win a majority of the population to Soviet ideology over time, but they never fully stamped out Christianity.  I have many Russian-speaking friends in the U.S. whose own family members were sent to gulags for being caught with a Bible, or participating in a prayer group.

Russia is today experiencing a Christian revival and is decidedly NOT communist.  Some 30,000 churches have been built in the last year, and the ones in Moscow are reportedly overflowing with worshippers on Sundays.  Most of the church is Orthodox, which is steeped in tradition, but at the same time relevant to the modern society.

Painting in the Newly Rebuilt Christ the Savior Cathedral

The Orthodox churches are stunningly beautiful, both inside and out.  The iconography that defines its style of worship is like an exquisitely detailed picture-book of the story of the Bible, laid out as a visual feast across the walls and pillars and domes of the interiors.  One’s language or level of education is largely irrelevant: you can “read” the Bible through the artwork.

Yesterday, the 17th, I did a walking tour of Red Square and visited St. Basil’s Cathedral, the famous one in all the American movies about Russia.  In the afternoon I met and did a television show with Archpriest Dimitri Smirnov, head of the Patriarch‘s Commission on the Family.  The Patriarch is the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, equivalent to the Pope of the Catholic Church.  Father Dimitri is his right-hand-man for family issues, and a warm and humble man.  We bonded instantly and had a wonderful time of fellowship.

Pastor Scott with Father Dimitri

Father Dimitri is very supportive of my Rainbow strategy for the Winter Olympics and thinks it has a chance of being implemented.

The Rainbow Belongs to God Strategy

Here is a link to my article about this  http://www.scottlively.net/2013/09/11/the-rainbow-belongs-to-god/

In short the “gays” want to embarrass the Russian government by “Rainbow-bombing” the Sochi Olympics in revenge for passing a law banning homosexual propaganda of children.  I proposed just such a law during my 50-city tour of the former Soviet Union in 2006-2007.  See my Letter to the Russian People from 2007  http://www.defendthefamily.com/pfrc/archives.php?id=5225300

(Our good friend and ally Brian Camenker infiltrated the Gay and Lesbian Journalists Conference in Boston this fall, and exposed the details of this “progressive” media-driven campaign against the Russians:  http://www.massresistance.org/docs/gen2/13c/NLGJA_Conference/disrupt-russian-olympics.html  )

Even worse from a spiritual and global culture-war perspective, the “gays” hope to lay claim to exclusive global use of God’s rainbow as a symbol of homosexuality, and the Western media is poised to ensure that this “Rainbow=LGBT” branding is indelibly stamped in the minds of the entire world population.

I’m encouraging everyone to do whatever you can do to help thwart this evil plan, including efforts to encourage Christians to reclaim the rainbow in your sphere of influence.  Remember Ezekiel 1:28, and Rev 4:3.

Father Dimitri has also offered to help me find a publisher for the Russian version of The Pink Swastika. (If you have any leads on Russian publishers with a national distribution system please let me know) We have pledged to devote 50% of earnings from this book to promote the pro-family movement in Russia and the former Soviet countries. Given the Russian attitude about homosexuality, and the still-fresh memories of Nazism in the Russian population, this book has significant potential to further harden resolve against the homosexualization of Russia and the countries in its orbit.

For  The Pink Swastika in English, read and/or download chapters 1-3 of our new 5th Edition (in progress) at http://www.scottlively.net/the-pink-swastika-5th-edition/

Interestingly, Father Dimitri’s television facilities are at “Gorky Film Studios.” The Pink Swastika contains a quote from Maxim Gorky, himself, who said in 1934 “Eliminate the homosexual and fascism will disappear,” acknowledging the once well known but now-suppressed fact that homosexuality was the central unifying vice of the Nazi elite.

TV Interview at Gorky Film Studios

I haven’t yet received a reply from my Open Letter to President Putin http://www.scottlively.net/2013/08/30/an-open-letter-to-president-vladimir-putin/

You may also be interested in my short-follow-up piece on that theme here http://www.scottlively.net/2013/09/03/praise-for-putin/

How incredibly ironic it is that Russia is now our best hope for stopping the conquest of the world by the “progressives.”  On Father Dimitri’s television show I made the point that the Americans and the Soviets both won and both lost the Cold War.  The Americans broke the Soviet system through economic strategies and tactics.  But before they collapsed, the Soviets poisoned the United States with Cultural Marxism, promoting moral degeneracy and family breakdown through so-called “progressive“ ideology.  Today, post-Soviet Russia is re-emerging as a Christian nation, while the United States is becoming a “Gay Soviet Union.”  What a strange turn of events.

That’s all for now.  Please pray for me, as I pray for you.  God bless you!

Pastor Scott at St Basil's

Lively to Run for Massachusetts Governor

September 30, 2013

PRESS RELEASE
For Immediate Release
Contact Scott Lively 413-250-0984
Sdllaw@gmail.com

Lively to Run For Massachusetts Governor

Statement of Pastor Scott Lively:

After long contemplation and prayer I am convinced that I should run for Governor of Massachusetts. I will run as an independent.

The people of this state need a candidate who can clearly and unapologetically articulate Biblical values without fear or compromise. They need a candidate who will tell the simple truth that abortion is murder, and homosexuality is condemned by God (but that Jesus forgives and heals those who repent). That parents and not the state have authority over their children, because government is our servant and not our master. That socialism is slavery and humanism breeds corruption. But mostly they need a leader who will remind the people that Massachusetts was founded upon Jesus Christ and the Bible and that our future security and prosperity depend on restoring our trust in Him. “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord!” Psalm 33:12.

These are very dark days in Massachusetts and across America, and growing steadily darker. I believe it is time for Christians with a strong Biblical worldview to rise up and preach the whole truth of the Bible as widely and boldly as possible. Massachusetts is the bluest of the blue states: the first to adopt socialized medicine and “gay marriage,” the national model for promoting homosexuality to children in the public schools, and the most aggressive defender of child-killing through abortion. The Mass Republican Party is solidly controlled by moderate to liberal “progressives” and the Democrats are virtual communists. They both embrace and champion the culture of death. With these two liberal parties splitting the liberal vote, a true conservative independent could win the governorship.

I feel both called and well prepared to meet this challenge. I am a fifth-generation Bay-Stater, born and raised in the Village of Shelburne Falls, with roots in the region going back to the early 1600s. I am a former left-wing liberal, who has learned by hard experience the folly of those ways. I am a constitutional lawyer and internationally-recognized authority on family and human rights issues from a Christian perspective. I have run my own successful businesses and know how to keep a budget. I am a missionary pastor with a doctorate in theology who for the past five years has founded and run an inner-city mission serving the poor and disadvantaged — a mission that is a model of racial harmony and community service — without accepting a dime of government funding.

My personal life theme of “redemption theology” is clearly reflected in all of my endeavors, and exactly what Massachusetts needs to recover from four decades of decline under Godless socialism.

As a long-time favorite target of extreme “gay” and leftist slander I have skin thicker than a rhinoceros and cannot be intimidated or manipulated by critics or the media. As someone who voluntarily gave up a lucrative and growing law practice in preference for a non-materialistic missionary lifestyle, I cannot be corrupted by money or big-spending lobbyists. As a church and university lecturer and government consultant on family issues and human rights with service in more than 30 countries, I interact comfortably with leaders from widely diverse backgrounds and cultures, and can draw from a deep reservoir of personal experience for problem-solving. As an author of five books and veteran of more than 700 radio and television interviews, I know how to communicate effectively. As the founder and lead attorney of the Christian Mediation Center I know how to bring hostile opposing parties to a mutually agreeable compromise. These are all valuable skills that a chief executive must possess.

I am not a politician and will not become one to run for office. I will conduct no polling. I will not lie about my positions to earn votes I don’t deserve. I will plainly say what I believe and what I would do as governor. On the many issues on which I do not have a strong opinion I will say so, and yield to the views that seem most beneficial to the state. Where my views differ from the majority on issues that are most important to me I will try to win the voters to my reasoning rather than pander to the majority. I will not compromise my principles to win political office. I expect this approach will be appealing to a great many people.

In the next few days I will file my paperwork with the state and open a bank account. I will then begin raising money with which to campaign.

I expect to often be asked by reporters what I think my prospects are for winning this election.  To this I reply that it would take a miracle from God for Scott Lively to become Governor of Massachusetts — and I wouldn’t want it any other way.  God should get the glory for any good thing that comes from this campaign.  So don’t expect me to campaign like a politician.  I will do nothing more than travel the state to offer what I believe are Biblical solutions to Massachusetts’ problems — and leave the rest to Almighty God.

May He Heal this Commonwealth

A Legal Setback in the SMUG Case

Friends,

Today (23 September) Federal Judge Michael Ponsor denied my motion to allow me to appeal his denial of my Motion to Dismiss the outrageous SMUG lawsuit.  Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG) has sued me for “Crimes Against Humanity” for preaching against homosexuality in Uganda.  (But it is not the Africans that are at fault in this travesty, the real scoundrels are a coalition of Cultural Marxists led by the Center for Constitutional Rights.)

I am being judged according to a European legal standard in my own federal court system for speech that is 100% protected in both America and Uganda.  The Alien Tort Statute (ATS) which allowed this abomination into our U.S. court system was recently stripped of its power to hold Americans accountable for their conduct in foreign countries by the United States Supreme Court in the Kiobel case.  Since then every case which had been filed under the ATS has been dismissed except for two. One which had unusual facts was not dismissed but the judge in that case certified it for immediate appeal on his own initiative.

The other is my case.  Today, Judge Ponsor denied my motion to appeal the part of his recent ruling (against my Motion to Dismiss) that dealt with the ATS.  I am thus the only defendant in America still being sued under the ATS.

This means we must now move down the long, unpleasant road toward trial.  This email is to provide some guidance to my friends and supporters on how to pray.

First, pray for God to guide Judge Ponsor as he makes future decisions in this case.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Ponsor  Judge Ponsor is a Bill Clinton appointee, with a self-admitted activist philosophy.  In a June 2, 2013 newspaper interview he said “At some point I realized that judges are the unappointed legislators of mankind.“ That is worrisome.  http://www.masslive.com/news/index.ssf/2013/06/judge_michael_ponsor_reveals_s.html. Pray for him to be fair and objective, and not swayed by liberal ideology or the lies of my persecutors.

Next pray that the Marxist activists that have conspired to bring this bogus litigation forward are thwarted.

Leading this group is Luke Ryan, SMUG’s local Northampton-based attorney and ACLU associate who appears to be the chief culprit AND WHO WAS JUDGE PONSORS LAW CLERK FROM 2005 TO 2007.  http://www.strhlaw.com/attorneys/luke-ryan/  You will notice in his profile he admits to being active in Arise for Social Justice, the local ACORN affiliate which has organized all of the street activism against me for the past several years http://ariseforsocialjustice.blogspot.com/2013/08/stop-hate-and-homophobia-coalition-in.html

And he was also active in the radical homosexual group OUT NOW of Springfield http://outnowyouth.org/who-we-are/ who have provided most of the bodies for the protests against me.

Pray especially for Holly Richardson of both Arise and Out Now, the self-described 44-year-old “butch” lesbian at the bottom right in the photo under the “Harm Reduction” category of the OUT NOW website.  She has been especially aggressive against me and against our church.

Lastly, pray for the George Soros Funded so-called “Center for Constitutional Rights,” http://ccrjustice.org/lgbtuganda   CCR is the “principality and power” behind the SMUG lawsuit and many far-left causes, a truly demonic organization, operating from the heart of New York City at 666 Broadway (no joke) http://ccrjustice.org/contacting-center-constitutional-rights.

Pray for all of these Marxist activists to be saved and delivered from their sin and error in rejecting the truth of God.  As they press forward to attack me, pray confusion into their camp and for all of their strategies and tactics to be turned against them.

Lastly, I ask you to pray for my attorneys at Liberty Counsel, especially lead counsel Horatio Mihet to be strengthened and given favor by God.  And to pray for Anne and I as we are forced to endure this continuing persecution.

This case has enormous implications for First Amendment rights here at home and abroad, for the supremacy of our Constitution over foreign law, for Christian values under international law, and for the future power of homosexual activists to crush anyone who stands in the way of their global agenda.

I am just a pawn in this international power-play, the one they want to make an example of to discourage all the Christians from speaking the truth of God.  This case is hugely important to the global socialist agenda and its most powerful players.  It will take a miracle to stop them, so please pray hard.

Pray for my victory and an enlargement of the scope and impact of my work for His Kingdom, but more than that: that God will be glorified in whatever results from this case.

Standing Strong in Christ,
Dr. Scott Lively

A couple of days ago the following was forwarded to me by email from a European prayer network:

Exodus 5:1Afterward Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and said, “This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: ‘Let my people go, so that they may hold a festival to me in the wilderness.’ ”

2Pharaoh said, “Who is the Lord, that I should obey him and let Israel go? I do not know the Lord and I will not let Israel go.”

3Then they said, “The God of the Hebrews has met with us. Now let us take a three-day journey into the wilderness to offer sacrifices to the Lord our God, or he may strike us with plagues or with the sword.”

4But the king of Egypt said, “Moses and Aaron, why are you taking the people away from their labor? Get back to your work!” 5Then Pharaoh said, “Look, the people of the land are now numerous, and you are stopping them from working.”

6That same day Pharaoh gave this order to the slave drivers and overseers in charge of the people: 7“You are no longer to supply the people with straw for making bricks; let them go and gather their own straw. 8But require them to make the same number of bricks as before; don’t reduce the quota. They are lazy; that is why they are crying out, ‘Let us go and sacrifice to our God.’ 9Make the work harder for the people so that they keep working and pay no attention to lies.”

10Then the slave drivers and the overseers went out and said to the people, “This is what Pharaoh says: ‘I will not give you any more straw. 11Go and get your own straw wherever you can find it, but your work will not be reduced at all.’ ” 12So the people scattered all over Egypt to gather stubble to use for straw. 13The slave drivers kept pressing them, saying, “Complete the work required of you for each day, just as when you had straw.” 14And Pharaoh’s slave drivers beat the Israelite overseers they had appointed, demanding, “Why haven’t you met your quota of bricks yesterday or today, as before?”

The Homosexual Roots of Fascism

We have finally completed the beta version of Chapter 3 of the 5th Edition of The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party.  Even though we have nearly doubled the size of this chapter, with a great deal of new material interwoven into the existing text, this file is still small enough to download and send by email and I encourage you to do so.  Chapters 1 and 2 are available on the Pink Swastika page of this blog.

This is a work-in-progress.  Any help in proof-reading for typos and any other errors is welcomed.  Send comments by email to sdllaw@gmail.com.

A Teachable Moment About Media Bias

 A Teachable Moment About Media Bias

My Response to NBC’s Senior Writer Tony Dokoupil’s article
‘The rainbow belongs to God’: Anti-gay US pastor sets sights on Sochi Olympics.
(With hope, but not expectation, that corrections will be made.)

It would be helpful for the reader to first review the NBC story:

http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/09/18/20546485-the-rainbow-belongs-to-god-anti-gay-us-pastor-sets-sights-on-sochi-olympics?lite

Now let me try to make lemonade out of these NBC lemons.

Like most of the liberal journalists I’ve spoken with, Tony Dokoupil seems to me like a pretty nice guy.  Very personable.  Capable of objectivity.  Fair-minded.  They all seem to truly understand my reasoning as I explain myself, even while its clear they disagree with my views.

I always come away from these interviews thinking ‘this guy (or gal) seems like he (or she) might actually tell the real story straightforwardly, without leftist spin.’  Then I read the articles and get my rude awakening — like a woman waking up in the battered women‘s shelter again after being sweet-talked into yet another abusive relationship.

Take this line from Tony’s story:

“Lively has reason to be a bit cocky. America may have ‘fallen to the gays,’ he says, but much of the world still fears them and Lively is working to keep it that way.”

This isn’t journalism.  It is leftist political spin.  Tony has every right to believe it, but this opinion belongs on the editorial page, not in a news story.  I have never and would never speak like this, and I just don’t think that way.

That sentence is not objective journalistic analysis.  It is the subjective perspective of “gay” victimology, a fantasy world where “homophobia” is accepted as a legitimate scientific term rather than (what it is, in fact) a manipulative rhetorical weapon designed to frame ALL disagreement with the homosexual political agenda as an anxiety disorder.

My major beef with Tony and all of the “progressive” journalists who dominate the mainstream media is that their “news” stories always reflect the “gay” perspective of what is still a two-sided argument.

For example.  This is what I wrote to Tony in our email exchange:

“btw, here’s a bombshell that dropped today and supports two of my most central assertions. 1. That most “gay” hate crimes are perpetrated by “gays” themselves. 2. That the underlying narrative driving all “gay” propaganda and policy initiatives is “all disapproval of homosexuality leads inevitably to hatred, violence and murder against homosexuals,” and therefore the “gay” movement and its allies spins every “gay”-related news story and routinely fabricate evidence — even faking stand-alone hate crimes — to “prove” the narrative. You will recall that I (ironically) invoked Matthew Shepard as an example of what even I assumed was a true story to show how determined the “gay” movement is to prove their narrative. Now we know that even the central supporting pillar of their “disapproval = death” argument is a lie.

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/09/14/The-Matthew-Shepard-Story-is-a-Lie

Importantly, this huge, eminently relevant Matthew Shepard story broke AFTER I had stressed to Tony that these two observations are foundational to my thinking and constitute my key rebuttal to false claims that I incite hatred and violence against homosexuals.

However, this is what Tony wrote in his article:

“where Lively’s message goes, violence seems to follow.  In Oregon in 1992, a same-sex couple died when their house was firebombed during OCA’s campaign to declare homosexuality “abnormal, wrong, unnatural, and perverse.” In Sacramento in 2007, a gay man was called a “faggot” and punched to death by a stranger in a park. In Uganda in 2011, the country’s first openly gay man had his skull caved in. And right now in Russia and in the former Soviet states, there’s been a surge in homophobic vigilantism, including a torrent of shaming videos, some depicting gay teens being tortured by skinheads. Lively has not been linked to any of these crimes but we asked: Couldn’t his talk of predatory gays, “good and evil,” and “war” have played a role? “

What a perfect opportunity for Tony to have done his journalistic duty and shown Scott Lively’s perspective of the matter.  Instead, he perpetuated the “gay” victim narrative, chapter and verse as if we had never spoken of it.

Not only did Tony fail to give voice to my side of the argument, he got his facts wrong to boot.  The “gays” killed in the 1991 or 92 Oregon firebombing were unintended targets of racists trying to kill the Black family who lived upstairs.  The Sacramento incident ended with a mistrial after the jury could not agree that it was even a hate crime.  The Ugandan victim David Kato was killed not by a deranged “homophobe” but a male prostitute whom he had bailed out of jail to be his live-in lover and house boy.  The killer confessed and is now serving 30 years in a Ugandan prison.  And the Russian incident appears to me to be another case of gay on gay crime, but even if it isn’t, it’s just random crime completely unrelated to and unjustified by the new Russian law.

Importantly, I specifically provided Tony the facts about the Sacramento and Uganda incidents, so there can be no other explanation for this paragraph except that it is intended to bolster the “disapproval = death” narrative, and to misrepresent my history as proof of it‘s validity.

There are more false facts in the article:

“In Moldova in 2011, according to Human Rights Watch, he helped several cities declare themselves ‘gay-free zones‘.”   Not true, and not fact checked with me.

“Lively — who calls himself the ‘father’ of Uganda’s anti-gay movement…”   Not true, and not fact-checked with me.  This is a label given to me by Al Gore’s Current TV.

Lastly, Tony wrote:

“To whip up support for such policies, Lively simply shares his beliefs about gay people: They’re dangerous predators, even killers.”

What I actually said to Tony was this:  “We don’t attack unrepentant sinners to try to ‘save the world.’ We attack the sin of the world to try to save the sinners.”

The simple inclusion of that quotable quote would have gone a long way toward balancing this NBC story and toward explaining my motivation and goals, but I guess that’s probably why it was omitted.

In the end, what I hope to have achieved in this “teachable moment,” is not harm to Tony (I’ve already forgiven him) but to show through my own painful experience at his hands that the first loyalty of progressive journalists is to their ideology, not to truth. No matter how nice they seem, you can’t trust them when their sacred cow of homosexuality is at issue.

A Note to the Australians

Along with my congratulations for your election victory I want to remind the Australians of the international pro-family movement’s greatest weakness: conservatism.

Even now, while Christians and other pro-family people in your nation are breathing great sighs of relief and turning back to the normal cares and responsibilities of life, the homosexuals and their “progressive” allies are in their war rooms determining their next battle strategies. Like the indestructible robot from the future in the movie, The Terminator, they never, ever, ever, ever give up.

For the spiritually-minded, the better analogy is drawn from the Biblical story of Sodom in Genesis 19, where the homosexual men of that city would not be deterred from their efforts to rape Lot’s rescuers, even after they were struck blind while clawing at the front door.

Whether or not you believe it is demonically inspired, what defines the “gay” movement is an implacable militancy intent on conquest and control.

In the United States this is exemplified by the situation of the Boy Scouts of America. Despite winning a major landmark U.S. Supreme Court case in the year 2000 recognizing its constitutional right to discriminate against homosexuality (what to any other group would have been perceived as an unbreachable defense), the “gays” simply redoubled their attacks like the Romans besieging Masada. After 13 years of continuous and increasing pressure the Boy Scouts finally surrendered to the “gays” earlier this year.

In contrast to this fanatical zeal of the “gay” activists, pro-family conservatives are just normal people who desire to “conserve” the status quo against changes they perceive as negative and harmful.

Conservatives react and respond to the homosexual/progressive initiatives, but in between the battles they go home, thinking their jobs are done. They draw lines in the sand which they staunchly defend — until they lose that ground to the offensive campaign of the left, at which point they draw a new line in the sand. Indeed, the entire history of our movement since the 1950s can be viewed as a long, slow, incremental retreat.

For Australians to prevent the homosexualization of your country, you must stop approaching this problem as conservatives, and start thinking and acting pro-actively. You must turn from a defensive to an offensive strategy, setting new goals for your public policy and culture that are MORE family-friendly, and MORE values centered than what you currently enjoy. The new Russian law prohibiting homosexual propaganda to children can be an inspiration, but there are innumerable ways that creative pro-family strategists could move the ball forward toward our goal of a genuinely family-friendly society.

Lastly, I want to remind you that a team that only plays defense may be very successful at blocking the other side’s goals, but it can’t block every goal forever. More importantly, it never win the game.

Blessings,
Dr. Scott Lively

Letter to the British People

In His letter to the Church at Ephesus, written by the hand of the Apostle John in the book of Revelation, Jesus lamented that the Ephesians had “lost their first love.”  He exhorted them to “repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lamp stand from its place.”  In other words, He would revoke their right to be called Christians.

Britain was one of the first countries of the world to be Christianized, and it’s role in bringing the light of Christ to the rest of the world is virtually unmatched.  But today, Britain’s lamp stand is being removed.  She has lost her first love and refuses to repent.  Her state church has turned to apostasy and her people have fallen prey to false religions and atheism, like sheep without a shepherd.

I am a non-denominational American pastor of British heritage.  This week I was speaking at a Bible conference here.  On the Sabbath I visited a local town center and wandered through the streets talking with people about Jesus.  It was an enlightening experience.

The majority of the “Christian” people I spoke with were, Biblically speaking, virtually illiterate.  One woman who called herself an Anglo-Catholic had never heard that God sent Jesus to die on the cross for the sins of the world — the central tenet of the faith.  She promptly rejected that idea, saying that “God would never condone human sacrifice.”  Most of the people I encountered were self-professed atheists and simply rejected Christianity out-of-hand.

My most significant conversation of the day was with a Moslem man walking home from the market with his family.  “I have a stronger faith,” he said.  “And I keep the Christian laws better than most of the Christians.”  His tone was slightly scornful, but I admitted to him that he was right.  In fact, thinking back on the day, I don’t recall seeing a single non-Moslem family walking together: Dad, Mom and children.

I know that there are still genuine Christians in Britain, but there seems to be only a remnant still struggling against the rising tide of secularism.  And they seem to be found mostly outside the walls of the Anglican Church (though I know several faithful Anglicans still laboring mightily to defend the Bible there).

From what I have observed in the recent history of Britain, the greatest impediment to Christianity is her own state church, whose recent response to sensing disaffection in the younger generation is the astonishing plan to promote homosexuality to them instead of teaching them Christian virtue and the blessings of authentic marriage.

The American Declaration of Independence from Britain in the 1700s insists that “When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another…a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”  I suggest that the time has come for the genuine Bible-believing Christians of Britain to declare independence from the Anglican Church, and to declare plainly to the nation that its ruler-ship over them has become illegitimate.

Long before the Church of England came into existence, the people of Britain wrested a set of major concessions from their government that is memorialized in a document called the Magna Charta.  It’s very first principle states:

“THAT WE HAVE GRANTED TO GOD, and by this present charter have confirmed for us and our heirs in perpetuity, that the English Church shall be free, and shall have its rights undiminished, and its liberties unimpaired.”

All of the many denominations and variations of Christian expression existing in Britain today have equal claim to promise of the First Principle of the Magna Charta, a promise which is in truth a binding covenant upon the British government “in perpetuity,” meaning forever!  They were all, as it were, “in the loins” of the universal church of that day, and are “heirs” of the covenant.

This venerable document, the cornerstone and foundation of all human rights law in the world today will celebrate its 800th Anniversary on June 15th, 2015.   I urge the Christians of Britain to seize the opportunity of that global celebration, and the time of preparation for it, to rally the true church of Britain (those who love Christ and His Word) to lead the nation in repentance and a return to their first love.

Perhaps by reminder of the lesser covenant of the Magna Charta, the people will be reacquainted with the greater covenant of Christ, and by turning back to Him, will preserve their great privilege to be called a Christian nation, with all of the many blessings that entails.

The Rainbow Belongs to God

A trap being laid for February’s Russian Olympics could give homosexuals a world-wide exclusive claim on the symbol of the rainbow. 

The word “gay” once meant “happy” and “carefree” until it was appropriated by the homosexual movement.  Now it’s a word that defines sodomy and gender identity disorder.  Intuitively, children who have never known the true meaning of the word now use the phrase “that’s so gay” to describe things that are wrong and undesirable.  The “gays” tried to sanitize a lifestyle of unnatural sex by giving it a new name, but instead corrupted something that once was clean and wholesome.  The world has irreversibly lost a unique and precious gem of the English language that still adorns the poetry and musical lyrics of a more innocent time, like the fading photograph of a beloved child who died long ago.  The word was stolen and destroyed like a kidnapped child who never came home.

The word “homosexual” was invented by the early homosexual movement in 1860s Germany to accomplish the same impossible goal.  In that case, a brand new word, homosexual, was invented to replace the term “Sodomite.”  “Homosexual” was intended to sanitize the lifestyle defined by the practice of sodomy, but instead the word became so corrupted in the public mind that the movement eventually felt compelled to abandon it in favor of “gay.”

This brings me to the symbol of the Rainbow.  Even now the rainbow has come to be associated with the homosexual agenda.  Not yet exclusively, because there are many besides “gays” who still use the rainbow for other purposes.  However the day is fast approaching when only those wanting to promote homosexuality will dare to use it.

Christians and Jews (and even Moslems) should not let this happen!

The rainbow belongs to God and was created by Him as a symbol of His authority over creation.  Revelation 4:3 describes a rainbow around His throne in heaven.  Genesis 9:13-15 declares that He placed the rainbow in the sky as a promise to never again punish the earth by flood.  Then in Genesis 19 He gave a preview of the future destruction of the earth by fire – by incinerating Sodom and Gomorrah.  Both Peter and Jude remind us that the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah  was a warning to all generations not to follow the gross sexual immorality of those cities (1 Peter 2:6, Jude 1:7).

Who were the sinners of Sodom that prophesy warns  will rise again in the end times to dominate society (Romans 1:26-32 and I Timothy 3:1-9)?  They were first called “Sodomites,” then “homosexuals,”  and now “gays.”  Their movement has adopted the rainbow flag as an act of defiance against God, and their final attempt to sanitize their sin is to wrap themselves in His own cloak.

This article is a call to Christians and Jews (and Moslems — who also revere the book of Genesis ) to take back the rainbow from the “gays.”  I am urging pro-family leaders and advocates everywhere to start using the rainbow again, especially in ways that clearly link the symbol to Biblical opposition to the “gay” agenda, or which remind the world of its true meaning.  One way to do this is to create our own rainbow flags and banners bearing the slogan “The Rainbow Belongs to God: Genesis 6-9, 19” or a similar message.

The global homosexual movement, in cooperation with the leftist media, is making a final gambit to gain exclusive control of the rainbow symbol.  They have set a trap for the Russian government that they intend to spring during the Winter Olympics scheduled for February 2014 in Russia.  http://www.wnd.com/2013/09/gay-plan-to-disrupt-olympics-revealed/?cat_orig=world

Very simply, they plan to protest Russia’s new law criminalizing homosexual propaganda to children by encouraging individual competitors and other highly visible figures, including celebrities, to display the rainbow symbol during the Olympic Games.  The media will ensure that each such display is broadcast to the world.

It is a no-win scenario for the Russian government.  If the Russians ignore the tactic, the “gays” will declare victory and claim that the Russian government was ashamed to enforce its “hateful” law while under the scrutiny of the world. If the Russians attempt to enforce the law by punishing those who display the rainbow, the media will portray those persons as heroic victims and martyrs, while portraying the Russians as “homophobic” bullies secretly intent on exterminating homosexuals.  Either way, the media will segue any rainbow related stories with coverage of violent hate crimes (real or staged) against homosexuals that occur anywhere in Russia during the games (or any time since the passage of the new law).  They will imply that these incidents are the result and intent of the new law, and the “climate of hate and fear” it has engendered .  Worst of all, whichever way this protest campaign goes, the rainbow will be perceived by the world as the exclusive property of the “gay” movement.

However, with a simple judo move, the Russians could catch the “gays” in their own trap, and at the same time rescue God’s rainbow from being dragged through the mud.

Imagine the Russian Olympics taking place under a giant rainbow banner declaring that the rainbow belongs to God!  And rainbow symbols incorporated in virtually every aspect of the games and the celebrations surrounding them.  The scheme to display rainbows as a rebellious act by Hollywood celebrities, and left-leaning Olympic contenders would be rendered impotent.  The “gay” movement would be thwarted in its attempt to steal for itself what belongs to God and to all of us as His children.  And, best of all, the entire world, including the “gays,” would be reminded of the truth of the Bible: that God gave us the rainbow as a reminder not only that He judges sin, but that He forgives and heals those who repent.

Praise For Putin

As the United States and the United Kingdom morph slowly into a “gay” version of the Soviet Union, an unlikely hero of family values has emerged: Russian President Vladimir Putin.  In a stunning reversal of roles, the Russian Bear has become the defender of Christian civilization against the Cultural-Marxist American Eagle and British Lion.

While America and Britain compete to see how fast they can turn their children into Sodomites, Russia has banned homosexual propaganda to youth.  While the “mainstream” American and British press publish only pro-”gay” puffery and propaganda, Russia’s Pravda has become a counter-balance to their lies.  While the US and UK public schools have erected an iron curtain to prevent students from encountering any pro-family arguments or advocates, the Russian schools are preparing their boys and girls for healthy, normal marriage.  And while the “Land of the Free” and its Mother Country (which once promised that “Britons never, ever, ever shall be slaves“) embrace police-state tactics against Bible-believing Christians, the former Communist slave state is becoming a beacon of freedom to those who love God‘s design for the family.

Today I have mailed my Open Letter to President Vladimir Putin, praising him, and the Russian government for standing up for the family (see http://www.scottlively.net/).   I have also sent him a copy of my book, The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party, co-authored by Jewish researcher Kevin E. Abrams, which will soon be published in Russian.  We have promised President Putin the first copy of that book in his own language.

I will close this letter with the same words I wrote to him, invoking the battle we waged together against Nazism:

“Once again, thank you, President Putin, for standing firm in defense of the natural family, which is the essential foundation of all human civilization. Perhaps through the inspiration of your leadership, an alliance of the good people of our countries with those of your own, can once again in some cooperative fashion, redeem the future of mankind from a Fascist Leviathan, just as we did in World War II.”  ###

Dr. Scott Lively, J.D., Th.D. is an attorney, pastor and human rights consultant with service in more than 30 countries.  During a 50 city speaking tour of the former Soviet Union in 2006 and 2007, and in his Letter to the Russian People, published in St. Petersburg at the close of the tour, Dr. Lively advocated for the criminalization of “gay” propaganda to children, a policy which has since been adopted by the Russian government.

AN OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN

An Open Letter to President Vladimir Putin

August 30, 2013

President Vladimir Putin
Russian Federation
23, Ilyinka Street,
Moscow, 103132, Russia.

Dear President Putin,

On behalf of millions of Americans and Canadians who are concerned about the seemingly unstoppable spread of homosexuality in our countries and internationally, I wish to respectfully express my heartfelt gratitude that your nation has take a firm and unequivocal stand against this scourge by banning homosexualist propaganda in Russia. You have set an example of moral leadership that has shamed the governments of Western Europe and North America and inspired the peoples of the world. Already Lithuania, Moldova, Hungary and the Ukraine have begun to follow your principled example, and you have engendered real hope in the international pro-family movement that this destructive and degrading sexual agenda might finally begin to be brought to a halt across the globe.

As a long-time leader in the pro-family movement who toured your country in 2006 and 2007 advocating the very policy you have enacted, I want to caution you not to assume that you have fully solved the problem by the enactment of this law. The battle to protect your society from homosexualization has only just begun, and you may be surprised to discover in the coming months and years just how aggressively many world leaders will work to try to intimidate and coerce you to capitulate to homosexualist demands.

Few political agendas in the history of mankind have marshaled the tenacity and resolve of the homosexualist movement. Its activists are driven by an implacable militancy and a zeal to advance their own self-serving interests that rivals even the most fanatical religious cults. A glimpse at the spirit behind the movement can be seen in the Bible in Genesis 19:4-11.

In just fifty years this marginal group representing only about 2% of the population has, through sheer will-power and intimidation, gained more political influence in the legislatures and courtrooms of the western world than the Christian church. The sexual conduct that defines their identity as individuals and as a movement was almost universally illegal and unlawful during the years our two nations were allied against the threat of Nazism, but just a little more than half a century later homosexualist leaders and surrogates sit in a majority of the seats of power across the west, and increasing in the east and in developing nations as well.

In readying your society to recognize and counter the efforts of the militant gay movement it is important to understand that their propaganda and policies adhere invariably to the narrative that all disapproval of homosexuality leads inevitably to hatred, violence and murder of homosexuals. All of the pro-homosexual policies in the United States and Europe rest on this unstated and unchallenged but fictional premise. Thus, the homosexualist movement is not simply seeking social tolerance, or acceptance, but political power and control. They want the power to stamp out all disapproval of homosexuality in your society and to compel every citizen (especially the youth) to embrace the view that homosexual conduct is good and normal.

They ask for a place at the table, but once they have one all the social ideals they exploited to get there, such as social tolerance, freedom of speech, and respect for cultural diversity, are discarded.  In place of those ideals is inserted a new backwards and upside-down morality and world-view that condemns all disapproval of homosexuality as a new fictionalized form of bigotry. I have termed this phenomenon “Homo-fascism” and defined it as a form of extreme left-wing, regressive radicalism which seeks to establish rigid authoritarian controls over all public discourse and government policies regarding sexual norms and proprieties, and to enact punitive measures against conscientious objectors that would punish or suppress all disapproval of homosexuality and related sexual behaviors (that would of course even though they deny it, quickly include a sexual indoctrination and exploitation of children).

In the coming months and years Russia and Her people will be increasingly portrayed by emotion laden and abusive hyperbole as bigoted haters, intent on exterminating homosexuals. Indeed, the propaganda campaign on that theme has already been initiated , with video footage purporting to show Russian neo-Nazis beating homosexuals now being circulated on the Internet, along with the false implication that this is the intent of your policy. This same propaganda machinery and methodology has been grinding away against the country of Uganda since 2009 when it introduced (but never passed) its Anti-Homosexuality Bill (AHB) that I agree was far too harsh but which never reflected any intention of the Ugandan government to exterminate homosexuals as “gay” activists and their media allies continue to allege.

Indeed, this “gay” narrative that equates opposition to homosexuality with Nazi-like genocide is in part an attempt to obscure the ugly roots of the modern homosexualist movement in pre-Nazi Germany. German fascism was formed and facilitated by masculine-oriented male homosexuals in response to an effeminate model of homosexuality which held that all homosexualist men were actually female souls trapped in men’s bodies. Beginning in the 1860s the Femmes, following the Grandfather of Gay Rights, Karl Heinrich Ulrichs, built a powerful social and political movement in Germany which focused on repealing the sodomy laws.

Offended by the constant characterization of male homosexuality as effeminate, the masculine-oriented Butches created their own movement grounded in the male warrior-cult philosophy epitomized by ancient Sparta. These were the first German fascists and from their ranks came first the Brown Shirted brawlers of World War I and then the Nazi Party. This thesis is heavily documented in my book The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party, which I co-authored in 1995 with researcher Kevin E. Abrams.

Along with this cover letter, I am enclosing a copy of The Pink Swastika (Fourth Edition) in English that is autographed by my co-author and I. We will soon be completing a long-delayed process of publishing the book in Russian, and hereby pledge that we will dedicate the Russian version of The Pink Swastika to the Russian Government and Her People. It will be our honor to send the very first copy of the Russian version to you.

Once again, thank you, President Putin, for standing firm in defense of the natural family, which is the essential foundation of all human civilization. Perhaps through the inspiration of your leadership, an alliance of the good people of our countries with those of your own, can once again in some cooperative fashion, redeem the future of mankind from a Fascist Leviathan, just as we did in World War II.

Respectfully,

America and Antichrist

August 13, 2013

Ask the average American Christian what the worst sin is and you’ll get any number of answers, but chances are they will fall in the category of the Second Great Commandment, sins against our fellow man: murder, rape, child abuse, genocide, and so on.  But to God the greatest sin of all is to violate the first commandment: “You shall have no other gods before me.”  We human beings are required above all else to “love the Lord our God with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength” (Matt 22:37).

America’s troubles as a nation really began when we dethroned God in the 1947 Supreme Court case of Everson v Board of Education, which elevated secularism above belief in God.  Rebellion against the first commandment became the official policy of the United States of America that day.  Torcaso v Watkins in 1961 affirmed and hardened that rebellion, the first fruits being the criminalization of prayer in the public schools in 1963.    The infrastructure of Christian civilization has been eroding at an ever increasing pace ever since as God‘s blessing has been replaced with His curse (Deuteronomy 28).

What we now call “religious pluralism” and “benevolent neutrality toward religion” — ideas that have come to represent for secularists the highest values of enlightened democracies — are nothing less than the sin of Antichrist, the worst of all possible sins.  To assume for oneself the power to arbitrate and equalize the claims of competing deities is, literally, “to exalt oneself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that one sets oneself up in God’s temple [as it were], proclaiming oneself to be God.”  This is the very language of the Bible which describes the Antichrist (II Thessalonians 2:3-4).  (Our Founders had no such delusion, but set our nation firmly on a Biblical foundation –with reasonable tolerance for other faiths — where it rested securely until Justice Hugo Black, writing for the majority, knocked it off in Everson).

The II Thess 2 passage continues with the following warning: “The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works.  He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and employ all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing” (v.9-10).  The “ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing” will not be introduced at some future time.  They are the very forms of deceit that people are already falling for: evolution, communism, “gay theology,” and, yes, “religious pluralism.”

When you stop to think about it, the Antichrist’s “Abomination of Desolation” could be something as seemingly innocuous as a “Proclamation of the Equality of All Religions,” posted like a “cease and desist” order in the place where God was being worshipped until the Antichrist’s intervention (Daniel 11:31-32, Matthew 24:15).  Indeed, the Daniel 11 model of the Antichrist, the Greek King Antiochus IV Epiphanies, was motivated by this very goal when he attempted to subjugate the Jewish people in the time of the Maccabees.  His efforts to outlaw Judaism was to stop Jews from violating the pluralistic religious ideal he had imposed upon all the countries in his empire.

I don’t presume to know for certain how the end time scenario leading to the Lord’s return will unfold, but it could very well begin soon with an agreement to allow reconstruction of the Hebrew Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.  That concession from the Moslems (and secret permission from the U.S. to attack Iran) would likely be considered by the Israelis an acceptable trade for giving up part of East Jerusalem to the Palestinians.  And President Obama (on some people’s short list of Antichrist candidates) would be restored on the world stage as the man who accomplished what no other leader could do.

Regional war in the Middle East seems inevitable in the coming months, triggered either by escalation of the Syrian conflict or Israel’s strike on Iran.  And once that begins the world economy’s house of cards will almost certainly fall, bringing unprecedented levels of hardship and turmoil across the globe.

I happen to believe the conspiracy theory that a global elite is preparing a new one-world government and economic system to replace the current one.  The scenario I have suggested here seems tailor made for them, and for the Antichrist.

It would seem rather natural and a great relief to the world if, after months (perhaps a couple or three years) of great trouble and tribulation in the world, famines, pestilence and social chaos, that a world leader would step forward with a grand solution: perhaps a world-wide Jubilee to declare all debts cancelled, and to introduce a new economic system to give every person on earth a brand new start.

(Incidentally, the next Biblical Jubilee year starts on Yom Kippur, September 23, 2015 at the end of a series of six lunar and solar eclipses precisely on the Biblical feast days, in a display of celestial signs unique in human history  See http://www.redmoonrapture.com/).

It would be a simple system, but require universal participation.  Everyone would need to get membership identification in a form that could not be used or appropriated by others (perhaps a mark or chip in the hand or forehead).  Only members could buy or sell and have access to the emergency supplies and welfare services to which every member is entitled for life. (It is the ultimate socialist regime.)

But there is a condition.  You must sign the pledge to reject sectarianism, and embrace religious pluralism and non-discrimination.  Americans have been conditioned to accept these values for decades, but there is added incentive to adopt such policies in that the social chaos of the preceding months has been marked by appalling ethnic and sectarian massacres around the world.  People are ready to trade their former freedoms for greater security.  (Another a way of thinking to which we have been conditioned.)  It would explain why average people would be so willing to accept the Mark of the Beast.

In all of this Bible-believing Christians and Jews would have a problem.  We could not renounce the Sovereign God by joining up and taking the Mark.  There would be serious consequences though, because people who refuse to join would be considered black-marketers and blamed for messing up the program for everyone else. There would arise an increasing hostility toward those who resist, leading to severe persecution.

Meanwhile, back at the Temple, the beloved world leader steps in to end the new (or continuing) war against Israel and impose peace on the region by his overpowering military force.  He stops the animal sacrifices in the name of religious pluralism and non-sectarianism (making a great show of self-glorification as the one man capable of solving the seemingly unsolvable problems of the world).  And on the altar he places his “Proclamation of Religious Equality” or some other symbol of his power.  And (here’s the kicker) no one in the world but the strongest of Christian and Jewish believers would see anything sinister or wrong in his actions.  The level of delusion in the minds of average people about who he really is so high that, “if it were possible, even the elect would be deceived” (Matt 24:24).

This is not a prophesy, but only my best guess at how the end days could plausibly unfold given the actual factors at play today.  I’m probably wrong on numerous points since this is all purely speculative.  But I’m not wrong on the central thesis of this article: America’s rulers have set themselves above God and prepared the way for the Antichrist in the hearts and minds of its people.  And to the extent we follow their lead in embracing “religious pluralism” instead of honoring Almighty God, we are equally responsible for the judgment unfolding all around us.

Pope Francis and the Snare of “Gay” Ideology

The Bible instructs that “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7).  And it warns “do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind” (Romans 12:2).  Thus there is no such thing as a “Thief Christian,”  an “Adulterer Christian,” or a “Drunkard Christian.”  There are only Christians whose lower nature leans towards those or other sins of the flesh.  We do not define ourselves by the sins that tempt us.  There is no such thing as a “Gay Christian.”   The very notion is anti-Biblical.

The concept of “Gay Christians” originates in sexual orientation theory, an ideological invention of the homosexual movement designed to advance the idea that homosexuality is “immutable,” meaning unchangeable.  It was adopted as a legal and political strategy of the American homosexual movement in the 1980s to try to make homosexuality appear to meet the requirements of civil rights case law.  U.S. Supreme Court rulings in that era required members of a group to have “immutable traits” to qualify for minority status under civil rights laws.

Thanks to homosexualist Justice Anthony Kennedy, who wrote four of the last five opinions relating to homosexuality, “gays” no longer need to prove that.  But sexual orientation theory turned out to be a boon to the “gay” agenda in innumerable ways, so it continues to be advocated.  More accurately, it serves as an unstated and unchallenged assumption at the foundation of all “gay” arguments.

Until recently, the church had not embraced sexual orientation theory but always distinguished conduct from personal identity.  “Love the sinner, hate the sin,” is the most recognizable shorthand for this idea.  But in the past decade or so, an increasing number of formerly Bible-centered pastors and churches have been changing their theology to accommodate sexual orientation presuppositions: “gayness” is innate,  “being gay” is equivalent to being Black, “being gay” is the way God intends some people to be. etc..  The members of the so-called Emergent Church Movement are the chief culprits in this trend, but it is spreading fast.

This week, Pope Francis appears to have, at least in part, subtly embraced sexual orientation theory in his comments about homosexuality in the Catholic church.  He said

“I think that when we encounter a gay person, we must make the distinction between the fact of a person being gay and the fact of a lobby, because lobbies are not good. They are bad. If a person is gay and seeks the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge that person? The Catechism of the Catholic Church explains this point beautifully but says, wait a moment, how does it say, it says, these persons must never be marginalized and “they must be integrated into society.”

Clearly, Pope Francis is NOT endorsing homosexual conduct as so many in the liberal media have dishonestly claimed.  He affirms the Catholic Catechism, which is explicit on that point.

My concern is about his use of the phrases “a gay person” and “the fact of that person being gay.”  Saying “a gay person,” instead of “a person who struggles with homosexual temptation,” or “a person who defines himself as homosexual” is on its face a major concession to sexual orientation theory when used by a Church leader about Christians.

Further, in the context of the sentence, it implies a softening of church policy that those with a deep-seated homosexual identity, even if celibate, are unfit for the priesthood.   The 2005 “Instruction Concerning the Criteria for the Discernment of Vocation with regard to Persons with Homosexual Tendencies in view of their Admission to the Seminary and to Holy Orders” forbids “those who practice homosexuality, present deep-seated homosexual tendencies or support the so-called ‘gay culture.’”

What is “gay culture” if not the association of people based on a common self-identification as “gays?”  Pope Francis has, wittingly or unwittingly, affirmed “gay” culture by his terminology, even while lamenting (and implicitly confirming the existence of) a “gay lobby” in the Vatican.

If the Pope has conceded that “gayness” is an acceptable basis for self-identity, that suggests he is willing to integrate people into the priesthood who define themselves by their sin, rather than as sinners washed and transformed by the blood of Christ. When identification with sin is a present-tense basis for your identity, you are unrepentant about remaining unwashed and untransformed. That’s very dangerous for the priests themselves, and in the church community virtually guarantees that the “gay lobby” will continue.

Of all the secular media coverage of this story, I think the Wall Street Journal was most accurate.  It said in an article with the perhaps overstated title “Pope Signals Openness to Gay Priests” that “Pope Francis reaffirmed church teaching by referring to homosexual acts as a sin. But he wielded his formidable bully pulpit to shift the tone of how the church regards homosexual orientation at its highest ranks.”  Indeed, the problem is the view of “orientation.”

The story also quoted Cardinal Dolan of New York who said “My worry is that we’re buying into the vocabulary that one’s person is one’s sexual identity and I don’t buy that and neither does the church.”  Dolan obviously “gets” what Pope Francis seemingly does not.  Dolan’s phrase “…and neither does the church” looks to me like an attempt at damage control by one who recognizes the hazards of sexual orientation ideology infiltrating the church.

It is possible that Pope Francis did not intend to convey what his terminology implied.  I understand better than most how one’s off-the-cuff comments sometimes imply things that we really don’t mean.  But in the full context of his remarks that day, and the still larger context of his tolerant and compassionate nature and style that is so admirable on the whole, I’m afraid he may have become (like an increasing number of evangelical leaders), ensnared in the subtle sophistry of sexual orientation theory.

I hope I am wrong.  I’ll be the first to applaud if Pope Francis clearly shows he does not recognize “gayness” as a legitimate basis for self-identification.  At this point, however, the evidence points the other way.
