The deranged anti-gay bigot Scott Lively has officially launched his absolutely pointless campaign for governor of Massachusetts. He’s running as an independent. As unhitched to reality as he always is, I find it hard to imagine that he’s delusional enough to think he has any chance of winning.
The anti-homosexuality, pro-life evangelist, who is currently being sued by a Ugandan civil rights group for crimes against humanity, has announced he’s running for governor. Some of his platforms are predictable, given his previous public statements: stop public funding for abortion; repeal gay marriage and help homosexuals “repent;” and protect Second Amendment rights.
Lively, a lawyer who founded Abiding Truth Ministries in California, also has a few unexpected platforms, including protecting honey bees, according to his campaign literature.
His campaign motto is “Qualified. Experienced. Electable.” Publicly available campaign finance records show he has about $3,000 in his coffers, including a $2,000 loan to himself…Lively is running as an independent in the “bluest of the blue states,” he said. He said he will be a viable option for conservatives whom, he said, have been abandoned by Republicans and have no connection with Democrats, to whom he refers as “Communists.”
“The people of Massachusetts need a candidate who can clearly and unapologetically articulate Biblical values without fear or compromise,” his campaign literature states. “They need a candidate who will tell the simple truth that abortion is murder, and homosexuality is condemned by God (but that Jesus forgives those who repent).”
I wonder if I can find one of his advisers to make a big bet with me that he’s going to win like I did with Herman Cain. I have as much of a chance of being the next governor of Massachusetts as he does and I don’t even live there.
