Big, If True: Conservative Christian activist Scott Lively argues that Trump lost because he was too friendly with gays and God hates gays.
Right Wing Watch reports:
During Sunday’s “Swamp Rangers” radio program, radical anti-LGBTQ activist Scott Lively declared that God stripped Donald Trump of the presidency because of Trump’s promotion of the LGBTQ agenda by giving a gay man, Richard Grenell, prominent positions within his administration.
On the program Lively explained:
He defied God on a fundamental tenet of the Bible and never repented of it. If Donald Trump was, as I believe, God’s man in the White House for four years, why did God not preserve it?
Because if God had given him favor, nothing that mankind could have done could have removed him from that office.
And yet the one thing that he did during that time that would virtually guarantee God’s favor being removed was to put his own personal stamp of approval on behavior that God condemns in the harshest possible terms in the Bible, which is specifically male homosexuality.
Trump fully endorsed and backed and applauded [Richard] Grenell, an outspoken advocate for the central doctrine of the progressive movement, which is queer theory.
The stupid, it burns.
Lively’s anti-gay remarks are not surprising. He is a leading figure in the global conservative Christian movement against LGBT people.
Lively is the president of Abiding Truth Ministries, and author of The Pink Swastika, an ugly, anti-gay polemic that draws a false connection between homosexuality and the rise of Nazi Germany.
In 2015, Lively, the American architect of Uganda’s notorious “kill the gays” legislation, was in federal court facing charges of “crimes against humanity.”
As well as his work promoting hatred against LGBT people, the conservative Christian also ran for Governor of Massachusetts in the 2014 and 2018. Both times he lost.
Bottom line: Conservative Christian activist Scott Lively argues that Trump lost because he was too friendly with gays and God hates gays.
