Skip to comments.'The Rainbow Belongs to God': Anti-Gay US Pastor Sets Sights on Sochi Olympics
Posted on 09/18/2013 6:54:29 PM PDT by marshmallow
When President Vladimir Putin recently banned homosexual propaganda in Russia, he joined sides in a new global culture war: a struggle to stop the march of gay rights abroad even as advocates wave rainbow flags in America. Now, as the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics approach, both sides are bracing for unrest and an American pastor is taking credit for the law that started it all.
Scott Lively is a hero to some, a demon to others and a joke to still more. From his home in Springfield, Mass., he runs Abiding Truth Ministries, a church dedicated to combating the homosexual agenda, and Holy Grounds Coffee Shop, where the faithful gather for java and Jesus. Lively also sermonizes overseas, promoting his books most notably The Pink Swastika, which traces the Nazi Party to a gay bar and portraying gay love as a dark force in human history responsible for the Inquisition, American slavery and the Holocaust.
Last month a federal judge allowed a first-of-its-kind lawsuit to proceed against Lively that alleges the pastor persecuted gays in Uganda and committed a potential crime against humanity one that contributed to a bill that would have made homosexuality an act punishable by death. And yet the grey-haired 57-year-old has refused to quiet down.
On his blog this month, Lively praised Putin as the defender of Christian civilization for signing this summer a ban on information that treats being gay as valid or attractive and traced the idea to his own tour of Russia in 2006-7. Last week, Lively suggested Russian officials foil gay activists planning to rainbow-bomb the Olympics by flying a rainbow banner over the games so the global homosexual movement would be reminded that the rainbow belongs to God!

“Last month a federal judge allowed a first-of-its-kind lawsuit to proceed against Lively that alleges the pastor persecuted gays in Uganda and committed a potential crime against humanity.”
A - Can a US judge really prosecute you for engaging in legal overseas activity? If what you’re doing is legal in the country you’re in, the judge should have zero authority.
B - Federal judges can charge you with ‘crimes against humanity’? I thought that was more of a UN schtick.
Bottom line, the radical homo agenda should be countered in Sochi if they try to rainbow bomb it. Let’s hope Russian security officials deliberately misunderstand the meaning of ‘rainbow bomb’ and charge these thugs with terrorism.
I remember reading that the top Nazis were all gay, I think in The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, but I’m not sure exactly where.
And I always feel sad at the “stealing” of a rainbow for gays, knowing what it really means. Sort of strange gays adopted it.
Lively has reason to be a bit cocky. America may have fallen to the gays, he says, but much of the world still fears them and Lively is working to keep it that way.
The Bible says very plainly that we must wear seat belts and that it is an abomination to use tobacco.
Seat belt and no smoking signs every where, gee whiz can,t people see anything?
Scott Lively must be a heretic and Russia must be the great end time beast.
