This is strange in many ways, and delightful at some levels.
A few days ago, Christian music star (apparently - I've never heard of her) Vicky Beeching, came out of the closet as gay. (I know, not politically correct, but that's her term here, not mine). In her interview, as a celibate, singing-nun-esque Lesbian, but still Lesbian.
Then all of a sudden there's this interview with arch-evil global hate-monger obsessed antigay former druggie Scott Lively.
What a naive woman - she thought the US was more open minded than the UK!
Anyway, it's a somewhat surreal, sometimes creepy, sometimes fun interview. Kind of like chocolate covered wasabi chips.
It's great to see her speaking out!
Nontheists don't have a monopoly on morality! :-)
Scott Lively is an unvarnished, extremist purveyor of hate, who's facing trial for crimes against humanity for encouraging government-backed anti-gay persecution in Uganda, and helping instigate Uganda's "kill the gays" bill.
Why did this "news" program give him any airtime?
Another of his departures from reality in the interview: "You keep referring to psychology rather than spirituality. I think that's your problem."
Thank you so much for the update on Scott Lively. I didn't know until now that an actual suit has been filed against him. I've heard the talk about it, but didn't know it had actually begun. I hope he gets broiled over the coals.
For the first time, a federal US judge has ruled a persecution of LGBT people is a crime against humanity.

Jaw. Hits. Floor! Thank you so much for posting that, GC! That is some of THE BEST NEWS I've seen in a month of Sundays! I hope Lively takes it on the chin!
As much as I despise Lively -- and I carried on an email debate with him once -- I can't see this suit winning in the end. If this type of suit is characterized as defamation of character, he can defend on the principle that you cannot libel or slander a large group of people. If he appeals I should think he will win. He has protected First Amendment rights as well. I will check out the C.C.R.'s case against him. Thanks for the hyperlink.
