Deranged bigot Scott Lively gave an interview to the student newspaper at Boston University and he was in fine form, declaring himself to be an advocate of civil liberties while wanting adulterers thrown in jail. Oh, and he’s just like Winston Churchill.
FG: Do you see yourself as a happy medium between the two parties or would you put yourself on an entirely different spectrum?
SL: I am sort of a Winston Churchill type of figure. People are either going to love me, or they’re going to hate me. If they voted for Scott Lively to be governor, it would mean they want a radical change in the way things are. If they want just a little nudge, to the right or to the left, of the way things are, they’re going to vote for somebody else.
Really? That’s your criteria for being like Winston Churchill? By that criteria, you’re also Bill Laimbeer.
FG: What would you say to someone who agrees with your social conservatism but disagrees with your religious foundation? Do you still see same-sex marriage as something that should not be allowed, even from a secular viewpoint?
SL: Sexual promiscuity is very destructive to a society, and homosexuality is a form of sexual promiscuity. We are male or female…there is no third sex. There is no such thing as a homosexual except that a person that is biologically male or female has made a self-determination that they are oriented toward someone of the same sex, instead of the opposite sex. That’s by nature, by definition, dysfunctional, and it’s not healthy, and we shouldn’t be encouraging it…I believe in civil liberties, but should we be endorsing that as a matter of public policy? Absolutely not.
No, you don’t believe in civil liberties. You want gay people and adulterers thrown in jail, which eliminates any possibility of you believing in civil liberties. You’re a Christian totalitarian, not a civil libertarian.
