The "Nuclear Bomb" Against Gays

That's the term used by American Christianist Scott Lively to advocate for the new law in Uganda. He now claims to be shocked at any idea that he could endorse the execution of people for homosexuality and appalled by the violence threatened against gays in Uganda during the evangelicals' anti-gay crusade in Africa. Well, here's a video of Lively's talk in Uganda that reveals what he says when he doesn't think he's being watched by Americans. He likens gays to mass killers, as the kind of people who would create a holocaust, as terrible dangers to civilization. This is the core of the Christianist message and the Christianist message is now the core of the GOP. At some point, you have to take these people's words seriously.
