George Clooney Calls For BOYCOTT Of Brunei's Hotels Over Anti-Gay Death Laws

George Clooney Calls For BOYCOTT Of Brunei’s Hotels Over Anti-Gay Death Laws

Actor and humanitarian George Clooney is calling for a boycott of hotels owned by the Sultan of the Asian country of Brunei — a week ahead of the day that the small country will start killing gay people by stoning.

Clooney posted an impassioned open letter on Deadline Thursday, asking consumers not to do business with the 9 hotels owned by the autocratic country’s ruler, Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, including the famed Beverly Hills Hotel, as well as the Hotel Bel-Air. 

Brunei isn’t a significant country. Its population is less than 500,000 people, pretty small in relation to most of its neighbors, The Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia. But Brunei has oil. This year it was ranked as the 5th richest nation by Forbes. Good for them. Of course they haven’t had an election since 1962 and have adopted the most extreme version of Sharia law so, not so good for them. At the head of it all is the Sultan of Brunei who is one of the richest men in the world. The Big Kahuna. He owns the Brunei Investment Agency and they in turn own some pretty spectacular hotels.

A couple of years ago two of those hotels in Los Angeles, The Bel-Air and The Beverly Hills Hotel were boycotted by many of us for Brunei’s treatment of the gay community. It was effective to a point. We cancelled a big fundraiser for the Motion Picture Retirement Home that we’d hosted at the Beverly Hills Hotel for years. Lots of individuals and companies did the same. But like all good intentions when the white heat of outrage moves on to the hundred other reasons to be outraged, the focus dies down and slowly these hotels get back to the business of business. And the Brunei Investment Agency counts on that. They own nine of the most exclusive hotels in the world. Full disclosure: I’ve stayed at many of them, a couple of them recently, because I hadn’t done my homework and didn’t know who owned them.

They’re nice hotels. The people who work there are kind and helpful and have no part in the ownership of these properties. But let’s be clear, every single time we stay at or take meetings at or dine at any of these nine hotels we are putting money directly into the pockets of men who choose to stone and whip to death their own citizens for being gay or accused of adultery. Brunei is a Monarchy and certainly any boycott would have little effect on changing these laws. But are we really going to help pay for these human rights violations? Are we really going to help fund the murder of innocent citizens? I’ve learned over years of dealing with murderous regimes that you can’t shame them. But you can shame the banks, the financiers and the institutions that do business with them and choose to look the other way.

The hotels listed below are owned by Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah:

The Dorchester, London
45 Park Lane, London
Coworth Park, UK
The Beverly Hills Hotel, Beverly Hills
Hotel Bel-Air, Los Angeles
Le Meurice, Paris
Hotel Plaza Athenee, Paris
Hotel Eden, Rome
Hotel Principe di Savoia, Milan

Scott “Crimes Against Humanity” Lively to Run For Governor of Massachusetts

Scott Lively in Uganda

“After long contemplation and prayer I am convinced that I should run for Governor of Massachusetts. I will run as an independent. The people of this state need a candidate who can clearly and unapologetically articulate Biblical values without fear or compromise. They need a candidate who will tell the simple truth that abortion is murder, and homosexuality is condemned by God (but that Jesus forgives and heals those who repent). That parents and not the state have authority over their children, because government is our servant and not our master. That socialism is slavery and humanism breeds corruption. But mostly they need a leader who will remind the people that Massachusetts was founded upon Jesus Christ and the Bible and that our future security and prosperity depend on restoring our trust in Him.” – Scott Lively, in a HYSTERICAL statement published on his personal hatesite.

Lively believes that the Nazi Party were all homosexuals because they were so vicious. And he also takes credit for Russia’s gay “propaganda” ban, launching Oklahoma campaign to legalize anti-gay discrimination, endorses life imprisonment for gay people in Uganda and helped push the “Kill the Gays”law there and is currently being sued for crimes against humanity, and claims to have exploded a Massachusetts strip club with his prayers.

I guess fancies himself as a modern-day Cotton Mather.



NBC News Interviews Scott Lively, Claims Credit For Russia’s Anti-Gay Laws – Video

Scott Lively in Uganda

NBC News sat down with American anti-gay evangelist Scott Lively, who is on trial for crimes against humanity, for pushing the “Kill the Gays” law in Uganda and who in his interview happily takes credit for Vladimir Putin’s draconian Russia’s anti-gay laws.

“Yes, I think I influenced the Russian law,” Lively said. While some gay rights activists still think he’s just a laughingstock, Boris Dittrich, the director of LGBT advocacy for Human Rights Watch, tends to confirm Lively’s claims. Russia was plenty homophobic before Lively’s arrival but the American pastor appears to have given shape to that free-floating hatred, Dittrich said. As he passed through Russia’s regions, Lively met with politicians and bans on homosexual propaganda followed, spreading to more than a half-dozen areas before Putin swept them into a national standard

NBC has also posted a clip of Lively speaking at a Watchmen on the Walls conference in Novobsibirsk, Russia in August of 2007 :

“There is a war that is going on in the world,” Lively said through a translator. “There is a war that is waging across the entire face of the globe. It’s been waging in the United States for decades, and it’s been waging in Europe for decades. It’s a war between Christians and homosexuals.

Liberty Counsel Asks Facebook Friends to ‘Like’ Picture Calling For Death To Gays

Liberty Counsel calls for death to homosYesterday Mat Staver and Matt Barber’s anti-gay Liberty Counsel took their hate to another level when they posted the above image on it’s Facebook page and asked it’s followers to “like” it.  The image cites the biblical  passage Leviticus 20:13 that call for homosexuals to be put to death.

Brian Tashman of Right Wing Watch who discovered the banner  writes: “We are eagerly awaiting Liberty Counsel’s other Facebook images on stoning women who had sex before marriage; adulterers; kids who curse their parents; blasphemers; sorcerers; Sabbath-breakers and false prophets.

Since being found out the LC has changed the original image and it now features the same image with the biblical notation of Matthew 19:4-6, which states  “at the beginning the Creator made them male and female.”  

And obviously hateful anti-gay douchebags.


National Organization for Marriage Pushes “Gays Are Worthy Of Death” Meme

Jeremy Hooper of Good As You and NOM Exposed has discovered that NOM  had posted a clip by NOM on their anti-gay marriage Rhode Island site where Liberty Counsel spokesdouche Matt Barber goes on a most evil and hateful rant that homosexuality is about “child indoctrination” is a “sin that is self-destructive” and “the wages of sins is death.”

Writes Jeremy about the clip:

I actually think I might be underselling the two videos. I’m not kidding you—it doesn’t get much worse than these two clips! They are not just anti–marriage equality—these are proudly anti-LGBT videos that denigrate us in every single way imaginable. These videos are from the most extreme fringe of this debate. They would make even some outspoken conservatives blush. The videos I just described to you are now forever to the National Organization For Marriage’s Rhode Island strategy. The organization is pushing them on its official website as a “preview of what the same-sex marriage movement is about” and telling supporters to share them widely.

After being discovered NOM quickly scrubbed and removed  the video from the site .

But not before screenshots could be taken of the page.



“Crimes Against Humanity” Charged Scott Lively: Gays Caused The Great Flood

Scott Lively in Uganda

Well it seems that Scott Lively is a “multi-tasking hater” and can’t even rest from spreading his anti-gay hate rhetoric while standing trail for “Crimes Against Humanity” charges in Springfield, MA.

Speaking yesterday on national Christian radio show yesterday Scott Lively blamed the Great Flood of Noah on gay marriage!

We need to remember that in the time leading up to the Flood what the rabbis teach about the last straw for God before He brought the Flood was when they started writing wedding songs to homosexual marriage and Jesus said that you’ll know the End Times because it will be like the days of Noah. There’s never been a time in the history of the world since before the Flood when homosexual marriage has been open and celebrated, and that’s another sign that I believe that we’re close to the end.”

Yes Scott Lively YOUR end is definitely near.


AFA Hatemonger Bryan Fischer Prays That Scott Lively Gets Away With His “Crimes Against Humanity”

Brtan Fischer

American Family Association hate group spokes-thing Bryan FISTer Fischer sent a prayer to prayer that God today to “send confusion into the camp” of the Satanists that oppose anti-gay christian extremist Scott Lively who is currently standing trail for “crimes against humanity” for sowing the seeds of the “Kill the Gays” in Uganda.

I  like that “slings and arrows of outrageous fortune” bit. Nice writing, Bryan you make that up yourself?

I’m sure that William Shakespeare would bitchslap you to tomorrow if he knew what you were using his words for.

Anti-Gay Hate Leader Scott Lively To Stand Trial For “Crimes Against Humanity” Monday

Scott Lively in Uganda

The the first-ever sexual orientation-related lawsuit brought under the Alien Tort Statute in the Unites States will begin on Monday when anti-gay “christian” extremist Scott Lively will be tried in a Massachusetts federal court.

The case of Sexual Minorities Uganda Vs Scott Lively alleges that Lively committed crimes against humanity in his campaign urging Uganda to implement harsh persecutions of LGBT people.

From the New York Times:

The lawsuit alleges that beginning in 2002, Mr. Lively conspired with religious and political leaders in Uganda to whip up anti-gay hysteria with warnings that homosexuals would sodomize African children and corrupt their culture. The Ugandan legislature considered a bill in 2009, proposed by one of Mr. Lively’s Ugandan contacts, that would have imposed the death sentence for homosexual behavior. That bill was at first withdrawn after an outcry from the United States and European nations that are among major aid donors to Uganda, but a revised bill was reintroduced last month. Mr. Lively is being sued by the organization Sexual Minorities Uganda under the alien tort statute, which allows foreigners to sue in American courts in situations alleging the violation of international law. The suit claims that Mr. Lively’s actions resulted in the persecution, arrest, torture and murder of homosexuals in Uganda.

Lively  co-authored the book The Pink Swastika, which states in the preface that “homosexuals [are] the true inventors of Nazism and the guiding force behind many Nazi atrocities” and is the former state director for the California branch of the American Family Association and formed Abiding Truth Ministries in Massachusetts which the Southern Poverty Law Center has named as a hate group

Seeing Scott Lively on trial for his hatred of homosexuals makes my day.

Let the truth come out and let the airing of this monsters hate speech and behavior be  aired publicly and for the record and have him judged and dealt with accordingly.

Is drawing and quartering someone still on the books as punishment?


IGLHRC Reports Gays and Lesbians Are Being Kidnapped, Tortured and Murdered In Iraq

The International Gay & Lesbian Human Rights Campaign has released an alert that it is receiving reports from Iraq of a new wave of targeted killings and violence against individuals who are perceived to be gay or lesbian.

According to Iraqi human rights activists, in early February 2012, an unidentified group posted death threats against “the adulterous individuals” in the pre-dominantly Shiite neighborhoods of Baghdad and Basra. The threats gave the individuals, whose names and ages were listed, four days to stop their behavior or else face the wrath of God, and were to be carried out by the Mujahedin. According to sources inside Iraq, as the result of this new surge of anti-gay violence close to 40 people have been kidnapped, brutally tortured and murdered. The Iraqi authorities have neither responded to this targeted violence nor have they publically denounced it. It is widely believed that these atrocities are being committed by a group of the Shiite militia.

Yep it sure was a great idea to replace the secular non existent threat with that fundamentalist religious extremist mess. But hey we brought them our democracy after all didn’t we?

So seriously fucked up.

Why did we go there?
Why did we stay there?
What did we get there?
What did we gain there?
What did we give there?
What did we bleed for?

George Bush’s daddy issues and Dick Cheney’s Haliburton greed.
