Scott Lively’s Crimes Against Humanity Trial Starts, Liberty Counsel Demands Information About The Ugandan Plaintiffs

Scott Lively in Uganda

 

Scott Lively’s Crimes Against Humanity trial finally began today in Massachusetts the anti-gay legal hate group the Liberty Counsel, who is defending him is demanding more information about the plaintiffs, Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG).

Lively himself didn’t even bother showing up for the trial.

Via MassLive:

Lively is being represented by the Liberty Counsel, based in Orlando, Florida, which bills itself on its website as “an international nonprofit litigation, education, and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and the family.” It has provided pro bono legal assistance on these and related topics since 1989. Attorney Roger Gannam on Tuesday argued that lawyers for the plaintiffs were being so surreptitious in turning over documents – already subject to an “attorney’s eyes only” restriction – that it was hindering Lively’s ability to wage an effective defense.

“Scott Lively has no desire for the information except for this lawsuit,” Gannam argued to U.S. Magistrate Judge Katherine Robertson. “SMUG has not proved that it’s reliable in deciding what Scott Lively should see and shouldn’t see.” In particular, the lawyer cited an email relating to a SMUG fund-raiser geared toward paying fees in the Lively case, which he said was so heavily redacted even the subject line was blacked out. Gannam also referred to images the plaintiffs have withheld of participants at the 2009 workshop in Uganda, which he argued Lively couldn’t confirm were there if he can’t see their faces. Gannam also suggested the plaintiffs’ representation of the significance of the 2009 workshop in Uganda was overstated.

So in a nutshell.  Lively’s and his lawyers want identifying info on lots of LGBT Ugandans, so they can use it to intimidate them with that implicit threat so they back down And in an even worse senario forward it to  Africa where they can be arrested or killed.  

Not only should Scott Lively be found guilty but a lawsuit should be brought against  Rick Warren, who helped spread the hatred overseas as well.

 

 

Uganda President Signs Life Inprisonment Anti-Gay Bill, John Kerry Reviews Assistance Programs

Uganda Prez

Ugandan President Idi-Amin Dada II Museveni has signed the bill penalizing homosexuality with life imprisonment into law today, the Ugandan Observer reports:

The president was in combative mood in a speech after the signing and while answering questions from journalists.  He suggested that the law was made necessary by arrogant western groups promoting a behaviour that threatens Ugandans’ “way of life”.

The signing, which was delayed by more than three hours, has been condemned internationally, but was hugely anticipated by many Ugandans.

The president, who first launched Galaxy International School at Lubowa, Entebbe road, signed the law at around 1:50pm East African time.

Before signing, the president identified three categories of gay people – recruiters, exhibitionists and mercenaries.

The president suggested he could not to understand how men could fail to be attracted to Uganda’s beautiful women and, instead, get attracted to fellow men. The president also paraded the mostly Ugandan scientists who concluded that homosexuality wasn’t generic.

Shortly after Museveni signed the bill the Secretary of State John Kerry, issued the following press release by the State Department.

“This is a tragic day for Uganda and for all who care about the cause of human rights. Ultimately, the only answer is repeal of this law. The United States is deeply disappointed in the enactment of the Anti-Homosexuality Bill in Uganda. For the four years since the bill was introduced, we have been crystal clear that it blatantly violates human rights obligations that Uganda’s Human Rights Commission itself has recognized are enshrined in Uganda’s Constitution. Today’s signing threatens a dangerous slide backward in Uganda’s commitment to protecting the human rights of its people and a serious threat to the LGBT community in Uganda. 

“We are also deeply concerned about the law’s potential to set back public health efforts in Uganda, including those to address HIV/AIDS, which must be conducted in a non-discriminatory manner in order to be effective. As President Obama stated, this legislation is not just morally wrong, it complicates a valued relationship. Now that this law has been enacted, we are beginning an internal review of our relationship with the Government of Uganda to ensure that all dimensions of our engagement, including assistance programs, uphold our anti-discrimination policies and principles and reflect our values.

“From Nigeria to Russia and Uganda, we are working globally to promote and protect the human rights of all persons. The United States will continue to stand against any efforts to marginalize, criminalize, and penalize vulnerable persons in any society.” 

It is time for us to do our due diligence and pressure our government to halt all aid to this hell-hole and do our best to expose Scott Lively, LaBarbera and all the other “Christian” leaders who go abroad to specifically spread this hate.  It is time that these stories reach the mainstream media outlets and escape the gay media bubble.

 

Brave Trans Activist Takes On Anti-Gay “Eat Da Poo Poo” Pastor Martin Ssempa On Uganda Television

Ugandan pastor Martin Ssempa who is famous for his “Gays Eat Da Poo Poo” hate speech appeared on Ugandan television’s Morning Breeze with trans activist Pepe Onziema and launched into another  vitriolic rant about the various ways gays reportedly have sex (with bananas and other objects).

After being attacked by Ssempa, Onziema tells the moderator: “Society has not rejected me…It is the propaganda of the likes of Ssempa. My family loves me as I am.”

Ssempa aka Uganda’s own Honey Poo Poo is quite the bully.   And the moderator is also quite the idiot.
