Trump Administration's HHS and Mike Pompeo Launch the Anti-LGBT “Geneva Consensus Declaration on Promoting Women’s Health and Strengthening the Family.”

Trump Administration’s HHS and Mike Pompeo Launch the Anti-LGBT “Geneva Consensus Declaration on Promoting Women’s Health and Strengthening the Family.”

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Health and Human Service Secretary Alex Azar joined representatives from the anti-LGBT countries of Brazil, Egypt, Hungary, Indonesia, and Uganda on Thursday to launch the anti-LGBT/ anti-abortion “Geneva Consensus Declaration on Promoting Women’s Health and Strengthening the Family.”

Pompeo and Azar have been working for at least a year and a half to mobilize Thursday’s signing of the Geneva Consensus seeking to reverse the Obama administration’s U.S. foreign policy which supported reproductive rights and LGBT equality.

The anti-LGBT agenda of the declaration reaffirms that “the family is the natural and fundamental group unit of society and is entitled to protection by society and the state.” Hungary’s Minister of State for Family, Youth and International Affairs Katalin Novák denounced international forces that she charged were trying to “weaken the traditional family” through a “culture of indoctrination and preaching”, “gender ideology,” and sex education.

Novák added that the right-wing anti-LGBT governments of Hungary and Poland are playing a leading role in promoting and strengthening the “traditional family.” Uganda’s health minister, Jane Aceng, criticized international pressure to support policies that “may be contrary to our values” and called for “due respect for our values and sovereignty.”

The Geneva Consensus Declaration event was a culmination of the Trump administration’s intensive efforts to build opposition to any international recognition of LGBT rights and a woman’s right to choose an abortion. Pompeo and Azar have been working on developing this new coalition for about a year and a half.

16 LGBT Activists Released In Uganda, Condemn Police Conduct and Anal Exams

16 Ugandan LGBT activists were released from jail Thursday on bond in Kampala after six days in detention. They are charged with carnal knowledge against the order of nature (homosexuality) and human trafficking.

This follows the arrest of the 16 activists from Let’s Walk Uganda, on Friday after their office in Kyengera, about an hour’s drive from Uganda’s Capital City, Kampala. came under attack from a mob that was trying to break into their office,  chanting anti-gay obscenities  and threatening  to lynch them. The activist called on police for protection. The police indicated that the activists would be given protective custody.

However,  while at the police station, police instead placed them under arrest on charges of carnal knowledge against order of nature and human trafficking after searching their office and finding water-based sex lubricants satchets, antiretroviral drugs and condoms Police officers told the activists that there was enough evidence to prove they were indulging in homosexual practices.

The activists were later subjected to forced anal examinations, despite protests by the LGBT+ community.

Dr. Jane Aceng. and former Ugandan Inspector General of Police IGP, Kale Kayihura, criticized the use of forced anal exams,

Frank Mugisha, Executive Director of Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG).  released the following statements:.

The Government is not only failing to protect us—they are also violating our rights as Ugandans with sham criminal charges designed to silence us and forced anal exams to humiliate and torture us,” said Frank Mugisha, Executive Director of Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG). “Our communities are demanding that the charges against these 16 defendants be immediately dropped.”

Two Ugandan cabinet minister on Friday evening issued public statements condemning the attacks on LGBT+ community in Uganda.

The Uganda Anti-Homosexuality Act, 2014 was passed in December 2013 with a punishment of life in prison for “aggravated homosexuality. In August 2014, the Uganda Constitutional Court annulled the law. Nonetheless, LGBT people continue to face major discrimination in Uganda, actively encouraged by political and religious leaders. Violent and brutal attacks against LGBT people are common, often performed by state officials. Households headed by same-sex couples are not eligible for the same legal protections available to opposite-sex couples. Same-sex marriage has been constitutionally banned since 2005.

Uganda Gay Pride Events Cancelled After Threats of Arrest and Violence

Pride Uganda organizers said in a statement on Thursday that Ethics Minister Simon Lokodo has threatened to arrest them if they hold the festival.

“He has categorically stated, time and again, that gender and sexual minorities have no rights in Uganda and today had all the venues of the planned Pride events surrounded by state militia,” the statement said.

Last year, the same event was stopped by the police after the authorities threatened to arrest the organizers of the event, arguing such gatherings were illegal under Uganda’s penal code.

Some of the patrons of the event were ordered into the vehicles and driven to Kampala for questioning. They were later set free without any charges.

Scott “Crimes Against Humanity” Lively’s Uganda Gay Hate Case Dismissed In Federal Court

Scott “Crimes Against Humanity” Lively Uganda Gay Hate Case Dismissed In Federal Court

For the past two years we have heard about the case against Springfield, Massachusetts “Pastor” an anti-LGBT activist and the  “crimes against humanity” lawsuit brought against him by Ugandan human rights activists.  Lively and his virulent views about homosexuality at a 2009 anti-gay conference in Uganda is widely believed to have played a role in the drafting of Uganda’s notorious “kill the gays” bill.  and was accused of collaborating with Ugandan officials to institute the death penalty for homosexuals.

Today the lawsuit was dismissed because  “based on lack of jurisdiction.”

SMUG v. Lively (Sexual Minorities Uganda’s suit against Scott Lively)

Court grants summary judgment in favor of Defendant Scott Lively, based on lack of jurisdiction. Memorandum and Order linked below

“Plaintiff has filed this lawsuit under the Alien Tort Statute (“ATS”), 28 U.S.C. § 1350, seeking monetary damages and injunctive relief based on Defendant’s crimes against humanity. Defendant now seeks summary judgment in his favor arguing that, on the facts of record, the ATS provides no jurisdiction over a claim for injuries — however grievous – – occurring entirely in a foreign country such as Uganda. Because the court has concluded that Defendant’s .jurisdictional argument is correct, the motion will be allowed.

“Anyone reading this memorandum should make no mistake. The question before the court is not whether Defendant’s actions in aiding and abetting efforts to demonize, intimidate, and injure LGBTI people in Uganda constitute violations of international law. They do. The much narrower and more technical question posed by Defendant’s motion is whether the limited actions taken by Defendant on American soil in pursuit of his odious campaign are sufficient to give this court jurisdiction over Plaintiff’s claims. Since they are not sufficient, summary judgment is appropriate for this, and only this, reason.”

In conclusion:
“For the foregoing reasons, Defendant’s motion for summary· judgment (Dkt. No. 248) based on lack of jurisdiction is hereby ALLOWED. As noted, the court will decline to exercise supplemental jurisdiction over the two purely state .law claims·. As to them, the motion for summary judgment is ALLOWED, without prejudice to re-filing in state court if Plaintiff desires. The clerk will enter judgment of dismissal. This case may now be closed.

“It is so ordered.”

Lively is president of Abiding Truth Ministries a recognized LGBT hate group and is director of Redemption Gate Mission Society, both currently based in Springfield, Mass.

In His Own Words

“Because no matter what, [homosexuality] is still abnormal, wrong, harmful and perverse.”
– Eugene Register-Guard, Nov. 1, 1992

“There is no question that homosexuality figures prominently in the history of the Holocaust. … The first years of terrorism against the Jews were carried out by the homosexuals of the SA.”
– The Pink Swastika, 1996

“It is not mere coincidence that the emperors of Rome in its horrific final days were homosexual; that Adolf Hitler’s inner circle were mostly homosexual; and that nearly all of the most prolific serial killers in U.S. history were homosexual. It is not mere coincidence that America’s cultural decline parallels the rise of ‘gay rights.’”
– “Agents of the Death Agenda,” May 1996 edition of Life Advocate magazine, quoted in “Northwest Update,” Coalition for Human Dignity, June 1996.

“Homosexuality is thus biologically (and to varying degrees morally) equivalent to pedophilia, sado-masochism, bestiality and many other forms of deviant behavior.”
– “Deciphering ‘Gay’ Word-Speak and Language of Confusion,” May 2002

“Homosexuality is a personality disorder that involves various, often dangerous sexual addictions and aggressive, anti-social impulses.”
– “Letter to the Russian People,” 2007

“The gay movement is an evil institution [whose] goal is to defeat the marriage-based society and replace it with a culture of sexual promiscuity in which there’s no restrictions on sexual conduct except the principle of mutual choice.”
– Conference in Kampala, Uganda, March 2009

“We need to bring back public discussion of AIDS as a ‘gay’ disease, pederasty as [sic] major subculture of male homosexuality, mental health problems and domestic violence as major problems associated with lesbianism, the increasing recruitment of children into a homosexual identity through experimentation with ‘gay’ sex, etc. – all the truths we stopped telling because the other side screamed so loudly about them.”
– WorldNetDaily, September 2012

According to Lively, Putin is the world’s last hope, and other nations should follow in his footsteps by implementing more anti-LGBT laws.

 

Uganda PRIDE Cancelled After Government Threatens Violence Against Participants

Uganda PRIDE Cancelled After Government Threatens Violence Against Participants

A PRIDE celebration which was  scheduled to take place this weekend in Uganda has been cancelled after a government minister threatened to organize a mob to beat up anyone who participated in the parade.

BuzzFeed reports: 

Saturday’s parade was scheduled to be held in a private space in Munyonyo, outside of Kampala, the country’s capital. But police raided the Mr. and Miss Pride pageant on Thursday night at the Venom nightclub and detained several of Uganda’s most visible LGBT activists for several hours.

On Friday, lawyer Nick Opiyo of Chapter 4 Uganda met with Ethics Minister Simon Lokodo to discuss the raid. Following the meeting, Opiyo told BuzzFeed News that Lokodo had threatened to bring opposition to the event to the streets, so organizers decided it should be canceled.

Opiyo added,

“We decided to suspend it because of the risks to personal safety. The minister threatened to mobilize a mob and a large police group to beat up anyone who shows up for pride tomorrow. We will engage the government next week with a view of holding the pride parade at another date soon.”

The cancellation has come only two days after a private LGBT pride event at a nightclub in Kampala was disrupted by policemen. The police claimed the event was a breach of a law requiring organizers to obtain permission to hold public meetings (organizers say they did, in fact, get permission for the event). Activists say some of those present were arrested and detained, but later released.

In 2014, Yoweri Museveni, Uganda’s president, signed a controversial anti-gay law which criminalized same-sex relationships and ordered life imprisonment for offenders. Despite being struck out by the Ugandan Supreme Court, the LGBT community has continued to face Since then discrimination and attacks against LGBT people have increased 10 fold.

Purportedly these actions of the Ugandan government are in violation of agreements made with both the US and the UK, which state that Uganda must allow pride parades to take place without government intervention.

Scott “Crimes Against Humanity” Lively Begs For Money To Save Hate Ministry From Other Hate Groups.

Anti-gay activist Scott Lively has had a long and bigoted career ranging from re-writing history and claiming that the Nazi’s were really “vicious gays” to going all the way to Uganda to preach his evil hate about the LGBT community and prodding them to put its LGBT citizens to death.  But now Lively is beginning to pay for his evil sins he has been found writing money-begs to other anti-gay groups  urging them to join him in pushing to the passage of Russian-style anti-gay laws in America and elsewhere – and of course, send cash.

Lively hysterically bragged that he is being targeted by gay activists because his Abiding Truth Ministries is “one of the most feared and hated pro-family organizations in the world and the downside of being oh so “feared”  and hated is that he is now facing a lawsuit stemming from his anti-gay activism in Uganda, which is why Lively was begging for money in the first place since his “feared” hate group grifts bring in pennies and his legal bills are mounting

“My friends, SMUG v Lively is truly a David v Goliath battle. I’m running a one-man office on a shoestring budget of less than $120,000 per year, provided almost entirely by donations of $50 and $100 from average people. Our donor base is small, mostly elderly, and very difficult to expand due to the success of the anti-Lively propaganda. While Liberty Counsel has been funding our legal defense, this lawsuit has nevertheless caused us major financial hardship and seriously threatens our future.

Frankly, I question whether ATM will survive the decade without greater support from the individuals scattered across the society who recognize the danger of the LGBT agenda and are willing to stand with us financially against it. That can only happen if the people who already support us encourage their like-minded friends and allies to donate to us. 

In a separate email to hate groups abroad Lively declared that “the Leaders and Activists of the LGBT movement are malicious deceivers and evil-doers, deliberately subverting civilized society and viciously attacking all opponents to advance their selfish and self-destructive interests” and called for anti-gay activists to focus on preventing the passage of antidiscrimination ordinances that protect sexual orientation in places where they don’t already exist and repealing them where they do. :

We need to build international pro-family solidarity on a foundation of genuine moral authority, meaning it must rest on the premise that homosexuality itself is personally and socially harmful, and not pretend that our only social and political interests are the “welfare of children” or the “definition of marriage.” That pretense is a product of the same diseased pro-family “leadership” that marched the American pro-family movement from one disastrous defeat to the next for the past three decades, and it is now being exported to the rest of the world by the same men.

The beauty of the Russian law is it cuts right to the heart of the real problem of LGBT advocacy: the recruitment of children. What I mean by recruitment of children is not primarily the sexual exploitation of young people by adult homosexuals, though that represents a dark current within the larger “gay” culture, especially among the men. What I mean is the normalization of homosexual conduct and culture to children and youths, leading them to engage in homosexual experimentation among themselves and subsequently self-identify as “gay.” An entire generation of American, British and Canadian children has been enslaved to this corrupt culture and ideology through the very propaganda that Russia has now banned.

While numerous countries of the African continent have chosen a much stricter approach, seeking to deter all homosexual conduct through harsh criminal sanctions, the Russian law balances the privacy rights of adult homosexuals (who choose to live discretely outside the mainstream of society) with the need of the nation to protect its children from the ravages of sexual perversion. It deters the LGBT lobby from attempting to mainstream the “gay” lifestyle, while granting the individual members of its community the “right to be left alone” that was the original stated goal of their movement in its early years, before it adopted the militant fascist tactics it is known for today”

Stop Crying bitch

Scott “Crimes Against Humanity” Lively: It’s Time For A Christian War Just Like In The Bible!

Scott Lively in Uganda

“How is it that a relatively tiny handful of homosexual activists, themselves representing less than 2% of our population, has managed in the same period of time to establish a reign of homo-fascism in the United States that has turned centuries-old American values upside down and has turned its large Christian plurality (if not majority) into criminals (if they dare to cling to the teachings of the Bible)? Isn’t it true that one man with the flimsiest of plans could utterly defeat the abortion industry and the LGBT agenda in short order — if God backed Him? So why have virtually all our efforts failed? It’s really pretty simple. The American church just doesn’t have God’s favor anymore. The brutal truth is the church has lost the so-called culture war and is now under occupation, like the French under the Nazis, with nothing left to do but organize resistance and plot to overthrow the occupiers through a political revolt.”

Josiah, the most righteous of all the kings of Judah and the ultimate model of “social activism,” did far more than we could ever do to restore his nation through fighting evil (just read 2 Kings 23 for proof). Nevertheless, though Josiah was personally rewarded by God, the curse remained on Judea because the nation itself did not repent.

If we are under the same curse as Judah, not even prayer can save America. Of Judea, God told the prophet in Jeremiah 7:16 “So do not pray for this people nor offer any plea or petition for them; do not plead with me, for I will not listen to you” and again in 14:11-12 he said to Jeremiah “Do not pray for the welfare of this people. When they fast, I am not going to listen to their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and grain offering, I am not going to accept them. Rather I am going to make an end of them by the sword, famine and pestilence.” – Scott Lively, who is currently standing trial for Crimes Against Humanity  for engineering the Uganda ‘Kill The Gays’ bill.

 

Sounds more like TREASON to me.

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.

Scott “Crimes Against Humanity” Lively: I’m Going To Deliver SCOTUS “Two Million Restraining Orders” Against #SSM

scott lively

 

Scott Lively who is currently standing trail for Crimes Against Humanity for his spreading of hate against gay men in Uganda is hooking up with  ReaganBook nutjob Janet Porter and they will present “As many as two million restraining orders” to the Supreme Court at the press conference on Monday, April 27th at 10:00 am.. The cost for a hater to fill out a  such a retraining order is only $50 per petition will all proceeds going to Porters and Lively’s criminal pockets.

Via press release:

Constitutional Attorney and former Massachusetts Gubernatorial Candidate Dr. Scott Lively, in his capacity as President of Abiding Truth Ministries and it’s global subsidiary Defend the Family International, will reiterate his call for the immediate recusal of Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Elena Kagan at a press conference on the steps of the Supreme Court in Washington DC on Monday, April 27th at 10:00am. Lively is one of fifteen national pro-family leaders who have organized the “Restrain the Judges” Project, calling on the Congress of the United States to exercise its power under Article 3, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution to remove jurisdiction over marriage from the Supreme Court. The members of this coalition will present as many as 2 million “Restraining Orders” to the Supreme Court at the press conference. These are letters from pro-family advocates across the nation personalized to all 535 Members of the Congress and the 9 Justices of the Supreme Court.

If this court declares homosexual sodomy to be a basis for marriage by judicial fiat and the majority ruling relies on the blatantly pre-judiced (pre-judged) votes of Gingberg and/or Kagan, this nation will be thrown into a state of civil and moral chaos not seen since the civil war.  A sizable portion of our citizenry, and numerous state governments will rightly refuse to comply with the ruling of the court and civil disobedience will be the only recourse for people of strong Biblical faith.

Scott Lively, of Abiding Truth Ministries, also known as ATM, needs your money to continue this blessed work.

When exactly is this clown going to jail?

Scott “Crimes Against Humanity” Lively: Journalist Should Stop Calling Me “Anti-Gay” It’s A Slur!

Scott Lively in Uganda

 

“Journalistic professionalism in America has declined apace with the print media industry itself, but Springfield’s sole daily newspaper has fallen further than most. News and editorials are supposed to be separate departments, but The Republican routinely editorializes in its news stories about me, and usually doesn’t even disguise its contempt. Most irritating and misleading is that all or most of the stories identify me (often in the title) as “anti-gay pastor,” as if that were some sort of professional title rather than an editorial comment. I strongly object to that characterization, which deliberately misrepresents my opposition to the mainstreaming of homosexual conduct as hatred of homosexual persons. The term “anti-gay” effectively mistranslates the pro-family motto “Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin,” into “Hate the Sinner because of the Sin.” As such it is not an honest descriptor but a slur, and its use by the media is an act of complicity in a dishonest and manipulative LGBT political tactic.”- Scott Lively who thinks going to Uganda and pushing the agenda of killing homosexuals is just fine and dandy and doesn’t want anyone calling him anti-gay.

Okay Lively you are officially now a “religious extremist gay murdering bastard”.

Is that better?
