Scott Lively: LGBT activists' concern for gay Ugandans akin to what Nazis did to Jews

by Jeremy Hooper

201402241106 Infamous activist Scott Lively, known for being a major force behind the draconian anti-gay law that a Ugandan court just overturned, is now claiming that modern advocates who have directed focus to the brutal anti-LGBT activities in this and other African nations are being both racist and Hitler-esque. Here's what that sounds like:

The evolutionist hero Charles Darwin taught that Blacks were an intermediary step in the evolutionary progression of apes into human beings, writing:

“At some future period, not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilized races of man will almost certainly exterminate and replace throughout the world the savage races… The break [between humans and non-humans] will then be rendered wider, for it will intervene between man in a more civilized state, as we may hope, than the Caucasian, and some ape as low as a baboon, instead of as at present between the negro or Australian [aboriginal] and the gorilla.” Charles Darwin, The Descent of Man, p. 156.

Darwin’s intellectual descendants dominate western civilization today, including the so-called mainstream media. Individual politicians and journalists may not personally express such blatantly offensive beliefs, but their Neo-Colonial attitude toward the Africans in the matter of African countries legislating their own moral values is grossly paternalistic at best — and inescapably implicitly racist.

In contrast, I, and my fellow Christians who have served as missionaries to Africa for generations have always treated the Africans as equals, created in the image of God just as we are. Every Christian who has ever visited Uganda knows that the typical Ugandans are a warm and lovely people: intelligent, caring and capable. Though they are very poor, their culture (outside of some areas which still embrace paganism) is highly civilized and its leaders are well educated and quite competent.

The maliciously deceitful attempt by the global “gay” movement and its media allies to paint Uganda as a pariah state filled with hateful bigots (as in the propaganda film “God Loves Uganda”), is simply a disgusting modern example of the same “blood libel” used against the Jews by the Nazis.

So to recap: A man who traveled to Uganda for the sole purpose of riling up animus against LGBT people is now claiming that those who spoke out against the extreme lengths to which some in the nation took his teachings are somehow in the same framework as racists and genocidal anti-Semites. I know the anti-LGBT movement would not stay afloat if not for its insistence to spin anything so that the discriminators seem like the victims, but this seems kooky even for our reliably disingenuous opposition.

Then again, this is a man who has spent the past couple of years facing charges of crimes against humanity—literally. Forgive me if I glean my insight into humanity from less volatile sources.
