The Pink Swastika and NARTH

In 2009, I reported that NARTH (National Association for the Research and Therapy of Homosexuality) had removed all but one reference to Scott Lively's works from their website. That reference was a note in their newsletter which described Lively's short speech at the 2005 NARTH convention where he donated money to the organization on behalf of his Pro-Family Charitable Trust. As an aside, Lively has donated at least $2000 to NARTH since 2003.In fact, Lively's involvement with NARTH goes … [Read more...]

Scott Lively goes nuclear in Moldova

Scott Lively said once that his work in Uganda was like "a nuclear bomb against the gay agenda." In January, he went nuclear-style to Moldova to oppose an anti-discrimination law. Radio Free Europe has the story:When the Moldovan government submitted a draft antidiscrimination law to parliament last month, conservative Orthodox Christian forces in the country treated it as a call to battle.And that call was heeded by U.S. pastor and lawyer Scott Lively, who traveled to Chisinau to warn the … [Read more...]

Rachel Maddow on David Kato’s murder

Rachel Maddow adds commentary to the controversy over David Kato's murder.Those close to Kato have told me that Kato did not pay prostitutes and that the scenario developing around him is implausible. If they are correct and Enock Nsuguba killed Kato for other reasons, I suppose a gay panic type defense might be a strategic move in order to avoid the hangman.Maddow here may overemphasize the direct American influence on this bill. However, she certainly is correct that the r … [Read more...]
