Scott Lively in Russia to bolster anti-gay hate and partner with Russian Orthodox Church

Scott Lively brags about partnership with Russian Orthodox Church while pushing hate, pimping his book, and posing for the TV cameras… in Russia!

By Cathy Kristofferson, October 18, 2013

Scott-at-St-Basils-860x1024 – “Pastor Scott at St Basil’s”

American Evangelical anti-gay hate monger Scott Lively is currently “on a one-week mission to bolster the Russian pro-family movement” in Russia, he reports on his blog today.  He is happy to relay “Re-Christianized Russia Now Defending Biblical Values.”

So much for the United States stopping the export of homophobia by American Evangelicals. Lively is freely pushing hate, pimping his book, and posing for the TV cameras.  To me, this is an interesting way to campaign for Governor of Massachusetts.

First stop on Lively’s latest hate tour of Russia was to the planning meeting for the World Congress of Families VIII due to take place in Moscow next year September 2014. Lively even got a tour of the Kremlin where the conference will open.

The World Congress of Families (WCF) is a Rockford, Illinois-based conservative group who provided support for the ‘gay propaganda’ laws in both Russia and the Ukraine.  The WCF is also the group exposed last week as the ones who brought NOM’s Brian Brown to Russia to testify for the bill banning adoptions by gay couples and single people in countries that allow marriage equality. They have their sights on more anti-gay hate in the Ukraine.  No doubt Scott Lively will be in the mix as Ukraine was one of the countries on his 2006-7 tour of former Soviet Union countries. - "TV Interview at Gorky Film Studios" – “TV Interview at Gorky Film Studios”

Next stop on Lively’s tour was a TV appearance pushing his hate for all things “homosexual” on Archpriest Dimitri Smirnov’s television show.  Smirnov is head of the Russian Orthodox Church Patriarch‘s Commission on the Family.

Back in early September, Lively posted about “The Rainbow Belongs God” and not those gays.  He reported how “the “gays” hope to lay claim to exclusive global use of God’s rainbow as a symbol of homosexuality“.  But fear not, because Scott has a plan to reclaim the rainbow for the Christians.  They will do it at the Sochi Olympics with the whole world watching no less! (I wonder how they themselves will not be arrested for gay propaganda?)

Lively now believes his lobbying has succeeded and the Archpriest is “very supportive of my Rainbow strategy for the Winter Olympics and thinks it has a chance of being implemented.

ps_coverThe most lucrative stop, and dare I say a clear reason for the visit, is the news that “Father Dimitri has also offered to help me find a publisher for the Russian version of The Pink Swastika.”  No doubt, as Lively claims, “[g]iven the Russian attitude about homosexuality, and the still-fresh memories of Nazism in the Russian population, this book has significant potential to further harden resolve against the homosexualization of Russia and the countries in its orbit.”  See OBLOGDEE’s recent coverage of Lively and his pack of lies ‘The Pink Swastika’ novel here and here.

Once again I am wondering who will be the Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG) of Russia.  Who will be the ones to sue Lively for his active persecution against gays?  Once again Scott Lively is publicly bragging about his export of homophobia, both past, present and of course his intent to continue to contribute and promote an ongoing persecution of the LGBT community in Russia and “its orbits” as he has since his first visits over a decade ago.

    How the HELL does this man get permission to leave the USA when his activities in Uganda are seeing him in court? His passport should be confiscated and he shouldn’t be allowed to leave the country. Next thing you know he will get assylum in Russia alongside Edward Snowdon

      LOL – I wish the Russians would keep him but I love my global LGBT friends too much to wish him on anyone! Anyway the ROC will be brought into great shame if they support this revisionist lying monster in any way.

    Is the US state dept. dead?

    This d*ck is spreading hatred in the name of the USA!


    Seriously- we need to end religion- it’s gotten out of control. No more coddling.

    Your delusions can not supersede reality any longer.

    I can only hope local activists are numerous enough and vocal enough to shout this dangerous fool down.

    • Cathy Kristofferson October 18, 2013 at 9:59 AM #

      Actually, I want to know why the fact that Lively has been in Russia scheming with the WCF since the 14th and it took his own bragging for us to know! WHERE are the local activists making a stink?? He was even on TV (he claims)!!

      • Melanie Nathan October 18, 2013 at 2:26 PM #

        I found the answer to that from a source. The activists were unaware. The modus operandi is to keep the trip and meetings secret. To hop over to Moscow from some other travel venue. And then after the meetings to brag about it. the idea is this will help get the work done, unimpeded by press, activists and others who may get in the way of the work of the devil

      Well, well, a fan of Scott Lively and his radical enterprise of persecution. Thank you John Lutz for supporting this gay, lesbian, transgender and queer site – we appreciate it and your input. In fact your comment has been put up as it will contribute to our cause as victims of the actions of Scott Lively – it will be used in the Court cases against Lively – charged with crimes against humanity – to show that indeed he is successful in riling up hate and getting gay people persecuted. So thank you for helping to enlighten our readers John Lutz and continuing to provide the evidence. Much appreciated.

    There is nothing called gay for sexual preferences, it is homosexuality, gay is a happy word and should not be used for such a perverted sexual preferences!

    • Melanie Nathan October 20, 2013 at 12:53 PM #

      Hahahahaha – you gave me a really good chuckle – thank you. So lets get to business here – so you mean straight people are not happy enough to share a word? I have an idea why don’t we call straight people gay and gay people straight – will that make you happy? I mean Gay? Urgh now you got me all confused. Oh now I have regained my composure… let me explain homosexuality is not a sexual preference – though I wish it were – because that would make it a choice and that would make life easier for some. However it is a sexual orientation – just as is heterosexuality. SO let me spell that for you O R I E N T A T I O N …… just in case you missed the point. Thank you for supporting my BLOG and taking the time to visit. I hope this lil bit of education helped you.

        More Education for OKE – thanks to my Facebook friends- – “This is what I have read about how “gay” became synonymous with “homosexual”: Back in the time in which women were *not* allowed to perform in theatres/onstage, female roles were portrayed by young males. The young males were referred to as “le gai”. Often, but not always, these young men *were,* indeed, homosexual. The term, over the years, became anglicized into “gay.” and another: “Also, in the UK, the “working girls” were called “gay ladies” so when it was a male, they called them “gay boys.”

        To hate is to sin. Therefore the true church cannot hate. Judgement is against the sin(homosexuality or any other sin) not the individual. This blog is doing the same as this Lively character by spreading hate against him and the church so it is just as guilty as him if this is what he is doing.
        In the context of sexual orientation what about zoophilia, incest and pedophilia should these also be socially acceptable?

        • Melanie Nathan October 21, 2013 at 7:17 PM #

          LOL no none of these are socially acceptable – Zoophillia incest and pedophilia – oh and what about adultery? are not human sexualities – gay or straight people can be guilty of anyone of these things – – neither is murder theft or assault or wife beating socially acceptable – these are crimes that can be committed by anyone of any sexuality – so what? What does that have to do with equality of sexuality or gender identity for that matter? I dont hate Scott Lively I abhor his behavior. But then I stop and think and imagine him with a little red tail and horns and think to myself mmmmmmmmmm maybe he is here doing the devils work……. am I supposed to love the devil? Yes you are right Lively is committing a sin for sure – with all that hate for gay people…. Oh and while having this discussion what is the TRUE CHURCH that one escapes me.

          • jimbo jones October 22, 2013 at 2:42 AM #

            Your topic was sexual orientation not equality of sexualities, don’t confuse the issue.

            ” none of these are socially acceptable and are crimes”,

            and you accuse Scott Lively of discrimination. I wonder what the people of these other orientations are saying about you. Homosexuality(sodomy) was a crime and not socially acceptable no so long ago, and this is my point. I am not making a comparison. its interesting that you are making accusations of discrimination yet you are guilty of it yourself.

            The true church is the one that has been around since its inception 2000 years ago, and its not the Roman Catholic church. They split from the true church in the year 1054 and are of human manufacturing as are all the other “churches” around the world.

            The church does not hate gays. It is out of love for them that it asks them and all of us to avoid all sin. It does this because it doesn’t want us to go to the other place. We are all guilty of sin, the key is to avoid sin and not actively pursue it. There is salvation for gay people but the cost is quite high and that is to have faith and stay celibate.

              Unfortunately I cannot respond to your comment because none of it makes any sense to me. Either you do not understand my responses and what you say is nonsensical or you simply cannot write English in a way that understand. I am not sure if it is a language barrier or if you are just incoherent. If it is indeed language that derogates from my understanding of what you have written, then I applaud you for trying to write in English. If English is your first language – OY then you are incoherent. I usually do not put up comments that make no sense – the only reason I am putting your comment up is to give you a chance to re-write it in a way that makes sense. Good lucvk and thanks for supporting my LGBTI Equality BLOG where we highligh all issues impacting sexual orientation, gender identity, human rights and equality.

    What Scott Lively said on Spectrum, Radio One, Uganda
    “Tracing the origins of homosexuality, how can we handle the challenge?”

    • Cathy Kristofferson October 31, 2013 at 8:41 AM #

      What Scott Lively says on any radio program or live in person or written on his blogs, articles and books bear no resemblance to reality so I’m not sure why you are posting this Ex-Gay quack science here on this blog site. We are not interested in your non-reality. You cannot pray-away-my-gay anymore than I can pray-away-your-hate. You should listen to what Lively said: “There is no shame in believing a lie until you learn the truth” and apply it to the falsehood that is the ex-gay lie. As soon as you learn the truth that gay is inherent, you will be able to rid yourself of the belief that it is not and stopping hating yourself and everyone else who already know the truth. Feel no shame when you accept the actual truth Eseza.
