Scott Lively: I Support Uganda's Life Imprisonment Plan For Homosexuals
World Net Daily:
“The Museveni prayer is a model for all Christian leaders in the world. The leaders of the West have declined in proportion to their degree of rejection of God,” Lively said. Lively also believes Uganda will rise as a major African power as America continues to decline. He uses Britain as an example. “Britain was at its height as a world power when it honored God as the Ugandan president has just done. America’s greatness has similarly diminished as we have shifted from a Christian to a secular-humanist country. But watch now for Uganda to be blessed by God for their desire to be His,” Lively said. Lively added that Museveni is definitely drawing a contrast between Uganda and the West. “This incident is also important as a contrast to the picture being painted of Uganda by the godless left of a backwards, violent and savage culture intent on murdering homosexuals,” Lively said. “On the contrary, Museveni is calmly and confidently setting the course of his nation by the guidance of the Bible, in a way that also shows great courage and resolve,” Lively said.The WND article links to yesterday's BBC claim that the death penalty has been removed from Uganda's Anti-Homosexuality Act. But as I noted yesterday, Ugandan politicians have repeatedly lied about the removal of the death sentence from the bill. WND, of course, makes no mention that Lively is being sued for crimes against humanity by Sexual Minorities of Uganda, who say that he encouraged the murders of local LGBT activists through his "missionary work" there. And as we'd expect, WND makes no mention that the allegedly amended bill still calls for life in prison.
