Anti-gay crusader Scott Lively returns to Russia to discuss ‘traditional’ values

Friday, October 18, 2013

MOSCOW — Anti-gay activist Scott Lively returned to Russia this week at the invitation of the Rockford, Ill.-based World Congress of Families (WCF), a Christian group that has opposed same-sex marriage and adoption of children by same-sex couples or LGBT parents in the United States and globally.

This is Lively’s first trip back to the country since his 50 city tour in 2007.

The WCF has convened meetings of social conservatives globally to exchange ideas on topics such as combating LGBT and reproductive rights in advance of its summit in Moscow next September, the agenda of which, according to Lively, is “traditional” values and the family.

On his blog, Lively wrote that he has had several meetings with Russian Orthodox Church officials, including Archpriest Dimitri Smirnov, head of the Patriarch‘s Commission on the Family.

Smirnov works directly for Patriarch Kirill (or Cyril), the powerful head of the Russian Orthodox Church (equivalent to the Pope of the Catholic Church).

Kirill has pushed for several laws now enacted in the Russian Federation including the controversial “gay propaganda,” and the law prohibiting adoption of Russian children by same-sex couples or couples whose countries permit same-sex marriage.

Last month, Lively said that while he did not play a direct role in drafting Russia’s anti-gay legislation, he does believe that his 2007 tour through Russia where he urged the implementation of such laws, served as a catalyst for legislation.

“I indirectly assisted in that,” Lively said, “and it’s one of the proudest achievements of my career.”

Lively also noted that he was receiving assistance in having a Russian language version of his anti-gay book, The Pink Swastika.

“Father Dimitri has also offered to help me find a publisher for the Russian version of The Pink Swastika.We have pledged to devote 50% of earnings from this book to promote the pro-family movement in Russia and the former Soviet countries,” he wrote.

“Given the Russian attitude about homosexuality, and the still-fresh memories of Nazism in the Russian population, this book has significant potential to further harden resolve against the homosexualization of Russia and the countries in its orbit,” Lively added.

Larry Poltavtsev, a spokesperson for a Russian LGBT rights activist group, said Lively’s “mission will only lead to justification for further violence against LGBTQ Russians.”

  30. For what it’s worth, Scott Lively is a homophobe and homophobes have been demonstrated by the medical society to be latently homosexual themselves, taking out their self-loathing upon happy and well-adjusted gay people. Don’t confuse someone who is latently homosexual with a gay person- apples and orangutans. Gay people are open and honest about who they are- latent homosexuals often marry women to hide their secret orientation while campaigning against those of us gay people who are proud of who we are. And hiding behind a cross and bible while engaging their self-loathing behavior is the epitome of disgusting, IMHO.

  52. Funny enough, Russia provides a wonderful example of what happens when religion goes away. Families get split up, people get thrown into prison and asylums for being different, and a dictator comes into power and starts killing people. In short, it's not religion which makes people monsters -- they don't need the help.

  91. Scott Lively and his marauding terrorist pals continue to attack innocent children of God for being what God made them to be. IF there is a God of Creation, then explain why that God would create 1500 animal species with 100% natural homosexuality from pair-bonding to parenting – from mammals to insects to reptiles? That destroys ALL of the anti-gay peoples’ deceptions about gays. Gay animals do not “choose” to go “against their nature”. They did not “learn” it from someone. They cannot be “saved” from that which is purely instinctive. It has been a part of nature for all of creation. If there is a God, then God is who created homosexuality and wove it into the very fabric of all of nature. MAN is who wrote the Bible. Thankfully, animals do not speak the language of man, and are therefore immune to such deceptions. Scott Lively and his evil assault ARE the abomination against the God of Creation.
    Sodom and Gomorrah were not destroyed because of homosexuality, it was because they were greedy and didn’t help the poor.

  150. Traditional values for Lively, such as lynchings, discrimination and brute force. Let’s hope the Russians decide they need to “adopt” him.

  153. This is a VERY dangerous man. He spreads lies about gay people (including his “gays are Nazis” theme) and is going around the world to stir up as much hatred as he can. I cannot believe this man calls himself a Christian.

  163. It’s called LOVE, it’s what each and every one of us desires and deserves. LOVE does not care about race, religion, colour, heritage, status, gender. LOVE IS……………………………….

  170. Idiot. He can stay in Russia for all I care. Marriage has been around longer than many religions have and marriage wasn’t just between a man and a woman. Marriage itself is defined as two people binding themselves to each other for life. It doesn’t specifically say between man and woman so sir your argument is invalid.

    Posted on Sunday, October 20, 2013 at 2:58am
  171. I hope he gets kidnapped over there!

    Posted on Sunday, October 20, 2013 at 4:28am

  175. For all the people preaching about jesus he never exsisted & their is conclusive proof of this & the supposed words he spoke where written by man 5000 yrs after his death & this was dictated then by another man to suit his own needs another 1000 yrs later
    If there was a god he made us in his own image & then been gay was also in his plan & also this is seen in all of nature & they dont have any preconceptions of what is natural or not
