Scott Lively Thinks Obama Supports LGBT Issues Because He “May Be” Gay

scott-livelyScott Lively, professional homo hater, is basking in his success in making life dangerous for the LGBT communities in Uganda and Russia. He’s met with less success in the U.S., and in a new interview, the Johnny Appleseed of homophobia suggests that one of the problems is that the president “may as well be a homosexual,” and perhaps even out and out gay.

Lively’s twisted logic arose from a remark the interviewer made about Obama’s opposition to the Ugandan antigay legislation that Lively helped father.  “I think Obama may as well be a homosexual himself. He is certainly a radical homosexualist – meaning a person, whether they are homosexual or not, meaning a person who is 100 per cent invested in the homosexual agenda.”

Uncertain of Lively’s bizarre terminology, the interviewer, Inigo Gilmore, sought to clarify it: “So you think Obama is a homosexual?” Lively’s reply: “I think he may be.”

The source for Lively’s belief is an article in World Net Daily, which is a right-wing stew of paranoia, mindless speculation and sheer lunacy. Lively also accused the president of essentially conspiring to promote pedophilia. “Anyone who is trying to break down the protections for the natural family and legitimize sexual perversion is complicit in the recruitment of children,” Lively said.


Lively is probably the only person who is simultaneously candidate for governor (in Massachusetts, of all places) and a defendant charged with crimes against humanity. Not hard to tell which of those two roles he most often personifies.

    He’s wearing a necktie. Does he support wearing neck ties because he’s a silkworm?

  • Texan78730

    There has been a lot of Internet chatter about this. He and Rham Emanual had been seen in a number of gay clubs in Chicago. Google this subject and enjoy yourself.

    This man and all who agree with him are despicable. But remember that when they say such ridiculously absurd things, it’s because they know they have lost the battle against us and that they are so desperate they will just make up anything.

  • Desert Boy

    Scott Lively has a male blow-up doll in his bedroom. Haters like him always turn out to be bog, ole closet queens. Like Miss Lindsey Graham.

  • corey

    I live in Boston, and my dream would be for him to get in my way!

  • itzallan

    You have to wonder about Lively’s own sexual orientation. I mean, considering how emotionally attached to the idea of homosexuality he is and how he projects homosexuality onto others, especially others who believe differently than him, has something tickling his underside about it. Perhaps Lively is more lively than even he realizes.

  • LubbockGayMale

    The loudest fag bashers are often outed by a scorned partner…. watch out Lively, or you’re gonna get burned!

  • swoeck

    Who the hell refused to have sex with him to create this monster? He is so fixated on gays that he had to have been refused countless times.

  • Derek Williams

    Claiming as Lively does that only gay people support LGBT equality makes as much sense as saying that only black people support racial equality and that only females support gender equality. This logic would make both my parents black lesbians, which would be as much a surprise to them as to me.

  • AzLights

    @Bulls Eye: He’s a worm all right, just not the silk kind.

    Scott Lively has me convinced in reincarnation. He must be the reincarnation of self-hating gay Roy Cohn, or notorious red-baiter and author of “Red Channels” Vincent Hartnett, of Martin Dies, Joseph McCarthy, Karl Mundt or Patrick McCarran, notorious witch hunters all. The rabbi in “Fiddler On The Roof” has a prayer for the Scott Livelys of this world, “May God protect and keep Scott Lively….far away from us!”

    Scott Lively is a creep.

  • mezzacanadese

    I think Michelle Obama would be very surprised to hear that her husband is a homosexual. As for the Boston element, Massachusetts is my home state, and I doubt if my fellow Masssachusettsites would be unenlightened enough to vote this crackpot in.

  • Will L

    Yeah, the ones who are the most vocal have proven to be afraid of their own thoughts and desires. Very possibly a closet case.

    I think he has his logic backward.

  • Sweet Boy

    Obama is a big butch lesbian…everybody knows that, ask Michelle

  • manjoguy

    It should be noted that Lively’s running mate for Lieutenant Governor in the state of Taxachusetts is Shelly Saunders, “a female, black, Democrat, inner-city social Justice advocate” according to his website.

    @tjr101: What to expect from a Christian?.

  • coltonblack

    The dude loves the attention for sure. He’s probably a closeted, self loathing person who Jo to Chris Pine. What an ass.

  • Redpalacebulleaglesox

    @Mezaien: Speaking as a Jewish Christian and member of the Church of St Paul and St Andrew (, a Reconciling Congregation in the United methodist Church (fully inclusive), Scott Lively is no follower of the teachings of Jesus, God the Son. He is merely another self-aggrandizing phoney who betrays his stupidity every time he opens his bigoted mouth.

  • Geoff B

    What is it with this jerkoff? I don’t think about homosexuality nearly as much as this guy and I’m trying to plan a wedding to another man. Gay marriage has become a second job to me and I still don’t think about as much as this guy. Is he just mad because he has to pay for it because no one will let him blow them for free? Allegedly.

  • inbama

    Lively needs to join his girlfriend Fred Phelps in hell ASAP.

  • queenrosered

    WTF is “a radical homosexualist”??? March 22nd my (str8) husband and I happily, merrily, and (dare I say it?) even GAYLY attended the wedding of a very, very close same-sex couple in Palm Springs.It was also the 36th year anniversary of them (Gary and Abel)becoming a monogamous, loving, committed couple. AT LONG LAST!

    When we awoke the next morning, I had no overwhelming desire to munch carpet and my husband reported no desire to do the “tube steak boogie”…Hmmmm…

    So are WE an anomaly or does this guy simply require someone to punch him in the chest every few seconds to remind him to breathe?
    If the former, OKIE-DOKIE then, lol.
    But if the latter, please, someone (ANYONE) detain that guy (chest puncher) long enough for Lively to die…greedily gasping on his own putrid hate and ignorance. smdh.

    Mr Lively is the typical homosexual who after embracing a false-self, together with a false sexual identity as a heterosexual, goes on a campaign to right other homosexuals through the use of dogmatic teachings, like religion. He does this in attempt to force them into becoming like him, inauthentic about their sexuality.

    Mr Lively has caused untold damage around the world, and caused the death of thousands of homosexuals, including many young people who as result of his vitriol against gays have chosen to be untrue to themselves and even to take their lives.

    I know we have free speech, but Mr lively is a sociopath that needs to be brought to justice, even if it is not in the form of serving time in prison, but of being subjected to an incessant barrage of ridicule.

  • Creamsicle

    I am so sick of all the ultra right-wingers who feel the compulsion to accuse Obama of being every kind of “other.” From the birthers to the secret muslim folks to this bullshit. They are so scared of a world that is accepting of differences that they have to make up boogeymen around every corner and convince themselves that these “others” will take what they were always told would be theirs. It’s sad, small, and shows just how petty the homophobes and haters really are.

  • Redpalacebulleaglesox

    As much as Scott Lively stinks, it is the likes of Randall Paige, who filed ecclesiastic charges against Tom Ogletree for officiating at his son’s wedding or the people who got Frank Schaeffer defrocked for doing the same thing that pose the greatest danger. They are seen “respectable,” even though their bigotry is as odious as the Livelys of this world. It’s all a matter of degree. While the Paiges of this world don’t go as far as Lively, they give him and his ilk spiritual aid and comfort.
