Lively: I Never Said What You Have Me Recorded Saying

Unhinged anti-gay bigot Scott Lively did an interview with Michelangelo Signorile on his radio show recently and was quite adamant that he had never called President Obama the Antichrist. Right up until Signorile played audio of him saying precisely that.

Asked about his comments on a radio program in which he suggested President Obama is the “anti-Christ,” Lively laughed and denied saying anything of the kind.

“I did not say that Obama is the anti-Christ,” he flatly replied. But then when the tape was played for him, in which Lively talks of the anti-Christ being the leader of the “largest superpower in the world,” he revised his answer.

“No, no — that’s Obama,” he admitted, adding, “but the context of that show was laying out a hypothetical situation.”

Uh, Scott…ANY discussion of the Antichrist is laying out a hypothetical situation. That is not an excuse for you lying and claiming you didn’t say what you obviously said. Here’s the audio:

    Scott Lively is a liar? Say it isn’t so.

  • John Pieret

    Well, to be fair, Lively has doubtless said so many unhinged things about Obama, he probably can’t keep track of them all.

    It’s as if they teleported in from the 1500’s and are unaware of recording devices.

  • But Obama is the anti-christ. Everyone the Christian Right doesn’t like is. Do you know how many anti-christs that means?

    A lively lier.

  • matty1

    I’m not saying he is the Antichrist but have you noticed how you never see them in the same room at the same time?

  • “Anyone who quotes me is a liar,” Newt Gingirch. Wingnuts have a positively Orwellian relationship with the truth.

  • Lively says, “No no no, I wasn’t trying to incite christians to violence against Obama, I was giving insight into Obama’s violence against christians!”
