Scott Lively, who took only 0.9% of the vote last week in the Massachusetts gubernatorial election sent out victory canards today, to himself today claiming that the “Holy Spirit” limited his campaign activities and that he’s not the “genocidal monster” that the LGBT community makes him out to be.
“I want you to recognize what a great victory we have achieved in this campaign. A Missionary Pastor with an inner-city church that seats just 45, mostly street-people, ran a part-time campaign, serving as his own campaign manager, with only 20-30 campaign volunteers (only about half of whom dedicated more than 40 hours to the effort), and a budget of just over $25,000. Deliberately (by the prompting of the Holy Spirit) limiting his campaign activities only to those public appearances and media interviews to which he was invited (not trying to win the seat in his own strength but staying out of the way to let God pull the strings), he (by conservative accounts) handily won the two major debates in which he appeared, shocked the hosts, audience and fellow panelists in every forum with his boldness and candor, and preached the unvarnished Gospel of Jesus Christ in nearly all of the 30 or so public events in which he appeared. I believe my faithfulness in stepping out into the political arena to preach the gospel has spiritually broken the back of the anti-Lively coalition and demolished its campaign of defamation. The public has seen me in the debates and other venues and know I am a sincere and kind-hearted Christian man, whether or not they agree with my views. They will never again believe the vicious LGBT lies trying to paint me as a genocidal monster. The Lord has vindicated me in an entirely unique way..”
But cha are a “genocidal monster” Scott! Cha are!
