Lively considers run for governor of Massachusetts

Scott_Lively

The vile Scott Lively, one of the American evangelical extremists behind Uganda's "Kill the Gays" bill, is considering a run for governor of Massachusetts. The Springfield Republican reports:

SPRINGFIELD - A pending federal court lawsuit accusing him of crimes against humanity and a certain backlash from civil rights activists isn't enough to deter Pastor Scott Lively from mulling a run for governor.

Lively, a controversial Christian evangelist and founder of Abiding Truth Ministries, grabbed international attention with his anti-homosexual views that he took to Africa and beyond as a missionary, announced that he is considering a bid for the state's top office.

During an interview on Tuesday, Lively said he formed a dozen-member exploratory committee to consider the viability of a campaign for the 2014 election.

It must be a parallel-universe Massachusetts, like the one where Mr. Spock is evil and has a goatee, and people get promoted by murdering the higher-ups. Speaking of which, I would like to see the evil version of Deval Patrick.

Black humor aside, Mr. Lively has a great deal of blood on his hands, and he is not done. So neither can we relax in our struggle for justice. We must build greater capacity at the international level to counter the poison merchants.
