Scott Lively: Gay-Straight alliance clubs are designed to recruit kids

Friday, February 3, 2012

Yesterday we posted a clip taken from the talk Scott Lively recently delivered to a church in California entitled “The Global Threat of Homosexuality” in which he declared that homosexuality is not a sin just like any other sin, but rather a warning sign from God that our society is on the verge of collapse.

Obviously, that was not the only absurd claim he made during his hour long presentation, as he also found time to go after the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN ) and accuse them of creating Gay-Straight Alliances in schools are part of an effort to seduce lonely kids and recruit them into homosexuality:

“These are activist clubs in the public schools in which these teenagers … many of these kids, when you see the kids that get wrapped up in this, they’re the misfits, for the most part, they’re the kids that don’t have friends in other places, they’re chubby or they have a bunch of acne or they’re socially awkward and then the Gay-Straight Alliance Club reaches out to these kids and brings them in and then they start adopting a gay identity,” said Lively.

  11. Yeah, they’re not meant to be supportive of an alienated population in a school environment. Obviously part of the gay agenda.

  26. GSA..Gay recruiter says…sign up for a 4 year tour of gay and never worry about your clothes matching for the rest of your life…Sign up for a tour of gay and redecorate your house….What an idiot !!

    Posted on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 2:16pm
  27. Seriously, the stuff these idiots say, why have some lost the ability to THINK rationally?! I mean last week someone said, all gays shove animals up their butts… I totally ignore these crazy people, who clearly need to be locked up, for ever, for being madly insane…

  28. But he also believes a talking snake told Eve to eat an apple.

  29. What an asshole as the only gay individual who goes to a private catholic high school in Waco Texas, I wish we had these clubs at my school. It would have made a difference my freshman through junior years. As a senior at that same school now, it’s fine. But I wish we could still start one up for the others who are there now. I don’t want them to have the same experiences I did. As for you mr. Lively, if any heterosexual is “turned gay” with this club, it’s because the guy has always been gay! He just now has a group that accepts him for who he is.

  30. Never heard such nonsense… geez

    Posted on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 2:17pm
  32. Really? I thought that was the catholic church’s job!

    Posted on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 2:19pm
  33. sure…maybe the kids who are constantly bullied day in and day out at school for being the way they are, and desperately need help in seeking for a friend or somewhere where they won’t feel fear.

    Posted on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 2:22pm
  34. *rolls eyes* that is the dumbest thing I have ever read…. Some people have no clue, if they put their energies into feeding the poor and homeless instead of this, the world would be a better place

    Posted on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 2:23pm
  35. And he know this because…… What an asshole!

    Posted on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 2:41pm
  43. Christian right wing nutjob…spreading hate is all they know.

    Posted on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 2:41pm
  44. Do you really want to bring up recruitment. Unlike homosexuality Religion is a choice, but children are not given the choice, children are forced into it, with no regard for their personal beliefs. And chastised by their parents if they don’t agree.
    The Catholics should say nothing cause those child molesters need to be closed down.
    Organized religion is the true evil here, not loving couples.

    Posted on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 2:42pm
  45. I wish they had support groups when I was in school. Many many moons ago. This guy has shit 4 brains & the homosexual gene. Lol

    Posted on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 2:43pm
  46. It’s a nice concept, but why would lonely kids do this? Why would they choose the GSA over the Computer Club or the Math Club? The refreshments aren’t *that* good! I have worked in schools for almost ten years and have never seen evidence of this.

    Posted on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 2:45pm
  47. Designed to recruit kids into working for the cause of a hate-free society is more like it! Geez, what an idiot!

    Posted on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 2:46pm
  48. There are honestly… No words that can describe and emphasize this man’s pure ignorance and stupidity.

    Posted on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 2:48pm
  49. He forgot to add that anyone that is successful in converting one of these lonely kids gets to be a guest on the Ellen show to brag about it and Ellen will shower this person with lavish gifts…….what an idiot!

    Posted on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 2:52pm
  50. And if this guy REALLY studied the people he accused (GSA) he would notice the STRAIGHT and ALLIANCE bit of it. Seriously? It’s like the Salem Witch Trials or when McCarthy made the House Commitee of Un-American Activites and randomly accused people of being communists. -.- all to get benefits because neither of the accusers knew the accused.

    Posted on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 2:54pm
  51. This is disgusting. Why do people have to be so stupid x_x

    Posted on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 3:08pm
  52. What a bunch of idiots! Like people can “control” another person’s sexuality! What is this 1950?

    Posted on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 3:11pm
  53. funny children are not born hating and fears homosexuals…

    Posted on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 3:12pm
  54. And there goes the big-mouthed freak from the Reich Wing once again.

    Posted on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 3:14pm
  55. Notice they never talk about the states that have marriage equality and there have been NO Problems!!! In fact, all the states with marriage equality have the lowest divorce rates!! So I would say, Homosexuals, and Homosexuals getting Married GOOD. Religious wack jobs. BAD.

    Posted on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 3:20pm
  56. Oh but they are recruiting kids to fight for equality and have a safe place to go when the world turns it back on them. Clubs like this help prevent suicide and idiots like him probably promote suicide in kids. Walk in their shoes for a day bet he wouldnt last 10mins

    Posted on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 3:33pm
  57. This guy is a life-size example of militant ignorance.

    Posted on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 4:09pm
  58. There is no doubt that GLSEN and the Gay-Straight Alliances are helpful to LBGT kids and straight kids as well. Come to PFLAG 3rd Thursday of the month, Mr Lively, and listen to the youth speak for themselves. <3 maria <3

    Posted on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 4:27pm
  59. There appears to be absolutely no depth of depravity that Scott Lively won’t walk knee deep in. This one is the worst so far though because he’s actively preying on school children.

    Posted on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 4:28pm
  60. Another fear driven man. His paranoia is creating hallucinations and delusions. Why are all these leaders nuts? I’d give my left nut to have a real man in charge.

  71. I live near this “church” (RACIST fundies in an office suite!), and will begin some recon on them. “Know Thy…[Terminally-Confused, Hysterically Fear-Driven Opponent]“, I sez.
