Brace Yourselves for a ‘Tidal Wave’ of Gay Rights

Scott Lively is not happy that Christian singer Vicky Beeching has come out of the closet as a lesbian. In fact, he says that the fact that this is happening within Christianity foreshadows a “tsunami” that will create a “tidal wave” of gay rights that will destroy everything if it isn’t stopped.

An evangelical Christian worship singer who has been urging churches to change their doctrine on homosexual behavior since announcing she is a lesbian is at the forefront of a coming tidal wave of “infiltration” of the church by promoters of the “gay” agenda, contends evangelical attorney, evangelist and activist Scott Lively.

Lively, president of Abiding Truth Ministries, said that with insiders on the offensive such as Vicky Beeching, a British-born artist who has become popular among evangelicals in the U.S., he expects “attacks on Christians in America like we’ve never seen before.”…

Beeching revealed she is a lesbian in an interview last week with the Independent newspaper of London.

“What Jesus taught was a radical message of welcome and inclusion and love. I feel certain God loves me just the way I am, and I have a huge sense of calling to communicate that to young people,” she said.

Lively, however, said Beeching represents “the drawing back of the tide before a tsunami” and an indicator of “how bad this is going to get.”

Yes, it will be a “tsunami,” or shaftnado, if you will. One can only presume that this tsunami will also be raining men.

About Ed Brayton

After spending several years touring the country as a stand up comedian, Ed Brayton tired of explaining his jokes to small groups of dazed illiterates and turned to writing as the most common outlet for the voices in his head. He has appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show and the Thom Hartmann Show, and is almost certain that he is the only person ever to make fun of Chuck Norris on C-SPAN.

    Unbelievable, we’re going to have to deal with streets that are literally flooded with people who are dressed better than we are!

    What’s next, dogs and cats living together?

    Religious Right: “Whoa! Not so fast there! That’s not the Christianity we want!”


    Hee hee hee. “Gaynami.” Hee hee hee.

  • d.c.wilson

    Yes but, every place hit by the gaynami will look absolutely fabulous.

  • eric

    Gaynami. Sniff. I, for one, prefer Ed’s sharknado ripoff.

  • EnlightenmentLiberal

    Yes, it will be a “tsunami,” or shaftnado, if you will. One can only presume that this tsunami will also be raining men.

    Win. I award you one internet as your reward.

    So a Christian who comes out as being gay is now an “infiltrator?”

  • bbgunn

    Chris J@10:

    So a Christian who comes out as being gay is now an “infiltrator?”

    I believe Lively spells it “infiltraitor.”

  • bbgunn

    Correction: I believe Lively meant to spell it “infiltraitor.”

  • dhall

    Lively and the other intolerant, increasingly frantic idiots might inadvertently be making the task of gaining full legal and civil rights easier with their increasingly ridiculous rhetoric. Hopefully, they’re losing followers too as more people realize how bizarre their hyperbole is becoming. Or begin to understand that the world is not ending after all. Eventually.

  • nicemarmot

    I have close friends who are gaynado and even one who is gayphoon (I had another friend who was gayicanne, but he moved back to Miami), so I’m totally cool with gaynami.

  • John Pieret

    Run! Hide! Its the Glittergeddon!!!!!!

  • Kevin Kehres

    @13…in a way, you can thank Congress. Because when it specifically created a law that discriminated against gays with DOMA, it inadvertently created a class of people whose rights could be Constitutionally protected.

    Until then, discrimination was just the “way things were” and US law didn’t even acknowledge gay people existed. Add the law and PRESTO! A class whose rights were at stake and could be protected. (AFAIK, the Supremes didn’t rule on this as an argument specifically in its anti-DOMA ruling, but I’m thinking it’s just a matter of time. The precedent is laid out.)

  • Robert Birch

    Maybe so, but after the tsunami there will be a glorious rainbow for all of us to enjoy.

  • composer99

    Lively doesn’t know it, but the gaynami (or perhaps homocane?) is a harbinger of the C.I.Gay.

  • grumpyoldfart

    She’s a zealous Christian. As soon as album sales slow down she’ll probably say she’s been de-gayed and beg forgiveness.

  • jefferylanam

    Not to be confused with gaygami, which is folding gays into interesting shapes.

  • John Pieret

    I listened to her interview. Besides being an articulate and pretty person, who I could understand any male or female being attracted to, she eviscerated Lively. She wants to remain a Christian, which I, personally. think is a mistake, but that is her choice for the moment. I wish her well!

  • rumleech

    We need to run a competition. “What would a tidal wave of gay rights look like?” Answers on a postcard, please.

  • Ichthyic

    Isn’t it getting near Scott Lively’s court date to stand trial for human rights violations?

    I seem to recall october or november.

    anyone have an update?

    Soooo looking forward to sending this horrible excuse for a human being to jail for 10 years or so.

  • Ichthyic


    The first victory was over the American Psychiatric Association, and within 40 years, every other group had been conquered, he said. The Boy Scouts were the latest to fall, just a year ago.

    umm, sounds like we missed the first Gaynado.

    Is this Gaynado 2, Electric Boogaloo?

  • John Pieret

    Ichthyic @ 23:

    Sorry to disappoint you but the case against Lively is a tort action … he is being sued by a group of people from Uganda for damages … there is no possibility of his being sent to jail.

  • greg1466

    Pssst, Scott. The infiltration of the church by gays happened a long time ago. But then I suspect you may already know that if we apply the “thou doth protest too much” test.

    So is Scotty gonna play Noah like Rusty? And who’s gonna play his Dad, Hannibal Lector?


  • Synfandel

    You can joke now, but just wait until you’re the one not being discriminated against. Then you’ll sing a different tune.

  • hunter

    “Not to be confused with gaygami, which is folding gays into interesting shapes.”

    We’re perfectly capable to doing that ourselves.

    And in honor of the gaynami:

    I’m not worried. my homeowners insurance covers gaynadoes. Of course, if it were a lesbianquake, I’d be in trouble.
