There’s your garden, run-of-the-mill anti-gay bigot who screams and cries because freedom of speech doesn’t guarantee freedom from criticism, and then there’s men like Scott Lively, who takes it a step further and helps legislators in foreign countries draft legislation that do real harm to gay people.
It turns out that (unsurprisingly), he’d like to see harmful legislation here in the United States, too. The author of the Pink Swastika: Because Academic Integrity Is Overrated, told the Editor-at-large of Huffington Post Gay Voice that he would like a world where gay people either submit to anti-gay therapy — which has been proven, over and over again, not to work — or be thrown in jail. Because it’s not just enough to squelch people who disagree with you, you have to throw them in jail for doing something you don’t like. He went on to add that he was, “disappointed” with what happened in Uganda, because they focused more on punishment and less on, “prevention.”
Anyone want to bet they’re not real?
Because it worked the last time they tried, right folks?
