Video: ABC raises Scott Lively's profile. Sorry, Scott.
Scott Lively is an official signatory to the rabidly-anti-gay-yet-supposedly-"mainstream" Manhattan Declaration. Those behind the document (Focus on the Family's Jim Daly, NOM's Robby George, Chuck Colson, etc.) leave Lively on their list at their own peril. Here's the latest reason why:
*Others close to Lively: Here is the acknowledgements page from Scott's web-based book Redeeming the Rainbow:
Redeeming The Rainbow [Lively]
"Sexual terrorism," "nuclear bomb." Right, and it's gay people who use ridiculous rhetoric. I hope Martin Ssempa and Chris Buttars are bffs.

THANK YOU, ABC!!!!!!!!!! I was beginning to think that no national news agency would cover this subject to the degree that they did!
Now, can you go after the Manhattan Declaration and its attempt to expunge Christian history in favor of some fluff bunny-fable that has NO basis in reality? As a History Nerd, THAT crap seriously offends me, ABC!

"It's offensive to me that every time a black man does something good, you have to say that a white man told us to do it."
There are so many things wrong with that statement. The fact that this hate filled ass suggests that this is something good is just the beginning. He then plays this "the media is racist" card, I guess because he is not being given credit for being a hate filled ass all by himself.
But, the most egregious aspect is that he lambastes others for his trumped up "racist" slight, while at the same time suggesting that killing members of a minority group because of his own xenophobic hatred is "a good thing". It is so far beyond the realm of reasonableness that in any other situation it might be considered foolish enough to be cartoonish. It might be considered cartoonish, except for the fact that it ends up with xenophobic hatemongers putting those that they love to hate to death - and that makes it criminal.

For those who haven't already seen: Martin Ssempa has a blog. He even allows comments. Have at it:

Thanks, J-dawg! Not that it'll ever get "approved", but I took a minute to post a comment:
"Until Christianity came onto the scene at a relatively late date, Gay people were actually revered by society, holding positions (amongst many Native American Nations) equal to Heads of State, and especially the roles of a High Priest or Priestess, because in every society and culture on earth Gay people were deeply revered and thought to be natural-born Shamans as they were among the Native American plains Indians (until barbaric Christian interference) and as they *are* amid the Asiatic tribes of the Chuckchi; in each of these culture-groups two men or two women were free to marry. In fact, it was quite common for two men or two women to fall in love and get married in ancient Rome; two famous Emperors (Nero and Elagabalus) had very public marriages to men to the cheers and adoration of the public--ancient writers even called their husbands their respective 'spouse'. No one has a logical standing in which to declare that these are not examples of a marriage. What's next, outlawing all non-Christian marriages as invalid or fraudulent (which is what many American Evangelicals have been hinting at in recent months)?"

What IS it with these people?!
On the one hand, they accuse gay folks of taking their sexuality into the streets (even if it's just hugging and hand holding).
But it's the opposition that's got diagrams on their signs and uses sexually explicit talk and pictures in CHURCH to demonstrate what gay people are about.
If I happen to be talking to a homophobe, and they don't like my support, as a last resort, THEY go into lecture mode telling ME in the same explicit way what I SHOULD know about gay people.
That has GOT to be a kind of mental illness, or mass hysteria. I mean that is a FREAKISH and unhealthy obsession, right there.
