A conservative pastor running to be the next governor of Massachusetts believes that President Obama might be gay and called the President a “radical homosexualist.”
In an interview with UK’s Channel 4, Scott Lively said “I think Mr. Obama may 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 percent invested in the homosexual agenda.”
He also accused Obama of “recruiting children”, saying “Anyone who is trying to break down the protections for the natural family and legitimize sexual perversion is complicit in the recruitment of children.”
“He is lending the weight of his office to a movement that’s goal is to overturn the Judeo-Christian sexual ethic and replace it with the gay ethic of sexual anarchy. That’s what he’s doing,” Lively added.
It’s unclear how much support Lively can expect to garner in a state like Massachusetts. In a statement he released announcing his campaign, Lively wrote “The people of this state need a candidate who can clearly and unapologetically articulate Biblical values without fear or compromise. They need a candidate who will tell the simple truth that abortion is murder, and homosexuality is condemned by God (but that Jesus forgives and heals those who repent).”
Lively has also been accused of violating international law after the pastor visited Uganda to push their anti-gay agenda over the last decade. On one of those trips, prior to Uganda’s anti-gay laws, Lively spoke at a conference, warning that the gay movement was “an evil institution” and that they sought to “defeat the marriage-based society and replace it with a culture of sexual promiscuity.”
