His defense boils down to this:7. The Pink Swastika has not been “discredited” except by homosexualist reviewers, most of whom have failed to disclose their ideological conflict of interest.

WND: Lively sued over “biblically based beliefs”

Of course, WorldNetDaily would weigh in on the lawsuit against Scott Lively. As usual, WND slants the matter to misinform their audience. The article by Bob Unruh tells readers that Lively is being sued overhis biblically based religious beliefs that homosexuality is a sin, and his statements about his beliefs.If you read the suit, you will find that the other people who went to Uganda with Lively (Don Schmierer and Caleb Brundidge) are not being sued.

As an aside, Lively has donated at least $2000 to NARTH since 2003.In fact, Lively's involvement with NARTH goes … [Read more...]
