Lively a Freemasonry Conspiracist Too

So it turns out, entirely unsurprisingly, that unhinged anti-gay bigot Scott Lively, in addition to bizarrely thinking that gay people were responsible for Adolf Hitler, also believes in freemasonry conspiracies. Specifically, he thinks the Supreme Court is part of it.

In a lengthy interview last week with a Denver radio show, anti-gay crusader Scott Lively presented his theories that a Freemason Supreme Court justice conspired to destroy Christianity through the separation of church and state and that gay people are the “main foot soldiers” of a Marxist plot to impose a New World Order.

Lively told hosts Chris and Sheree Geo that the Supreme Court’s church/state separation decisions in Everson v. Board of Education and Torcaso v. Watkins were the “beginning of the collapse of our freedom and prosperity as a nation,” for which he blamed Justice Hugo Black, “a 33rd degree Mason, very hostile to Christianity.”

But wait, wasn’t George Washington also a freemason? The father of our country? A freemason? Yep, and several other founders as well. And yet Lively also pushes the Christian nation myth. Uh oh, the Illuminati is going to get him now.

    Several of the Founding Fathers were also deists. That never stops the fundies from claiming them.

    Milhouse: Ahem. OK, here’s what we’ve got: the Rand Corporation, in conjunction with the saucer people –

    Six of the nine current justices are Roman Catholic. Neither the church nor the masons allows Catholics to be members.

    Trebuchet – wait now. The Roman Catholic Church doesn’t permit Catholics to be a member of the Catholic Church? No wonder their numbers are dropping.

    Trebuchet @ 7 – not quite accurate. The Raping Children Church will excommunicate any Catholic who becomes a Freemason, but the requirement to become a Freemason is the belief in one (and only one) Supreme Being

    Yeah, but the Catholics have nothing against the Trilateral Commission!
