Boston Globe, New York Times, BBC, NPR owe Scott Lively an apology



By Bryan Fischer

In Uganda, a leading homosexual activist, David Kato, was murdered last Wednesday, beaten with a hammer in his home and dying on his way to the hospital. Scott Lively, author of a well-researched and heavily documented book, The Pink Swastika, has been blamed for his death.

Even while admitting that the murder was "still being investigated," the Boston Globe was quick to lay the blame at Lively's doorstep, who, along with other pro-family experts, visited Uganda in the spring of 2009 to raise awareness of the many social and health pathologies associated with homosexual behavior.

The New York Times, the BBC and NPR all interviewed Lively in recent weeks, trying to blame him for what they believe is a rising tide of homicidal anti-gay fervor in Uganda.

Last Friday, the Globe quoted the leader of one of Uganda's leading homosexual activist groups: "David's death is a result of the hatred planted in Uganda by U.S. evangelicals in 2009. The Ugandan government and the so-called U.S. evangelicals must take responsibility for David's blood."

And it turns out that the Globe, the New York Times, the BBC and NPR are not alone in fingering Lively as an accomplice. Google "David Kato murder, Scott Lively" this morning, and you will get 17,200 hits. Almost all of this scapegoating was done, mind you, before police had any idea who had swung the hammer.

Well, it turns out that Lively had absolutely nothing, nada, zip, zilch to do with any part of this gruesome killing.

According to Reuters, a man has now confessed to the killing, and police are saying a "personal disagreement" let to Kato's untimely death. Meaning, of course, the whole thing had nothing to do with Lively or any other pro-family leader in America.

In fact, the police spokesman said quite pointedly that the murder "wasn't a robbery and it wasn't because Kato was an activist." So the whole hate crime meme is out the window, gone, history, in the archives.

The confessed murderer, one Nsubuga Enock, is a "well-known thief," according to police, and had been in prison until January 24. He had been staying with Kato since getting out.

Enock was arrested at his girlfriend's house, and so it appears that he swings both ways. Kato's driver has also been arrested in connection with the murder, and early reports indicated that both money and clothing were missing. And since Enock was in prison for theft, the dots aren't too hard to connect here.

Now the Daily Monitor is reporting that Enock has told police that he killed Kato because Kato had "coerced him into sodomy." Kato had promised to give him a car, a house and money in exchange for sexual favors, but when Kato didn't keep his end of the bargain and continued to attempt to force himself on Enock sexually, he bought a hammer and beat him to death with it.

Below is a photo of left-wing activists Rob Anderson, the Boston Globe reporter guilty of blood libel for blaming homosexual violence on Christian Pastor Scott Lively. Rob Anderson ought to be fired from the Boston Globe for making such serious accusations based on zero evidence. The accusations can be seen here.

"Progressive" Rallyists Call for Lynching of Clarence Thomas



Last weekend at an anti-Charles Koch Rally led by Code Pink in Palm Springs California two Young Conservatives of California members, Christian Hartsock and Alvaro Day, used kid-genius James O'Keefe strategies to uncover "progressives" calling for the "lynching of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas." Incredible.

This is the height of hyposcrisy considering that these are the very liberals who have been calling TEA Partiers "racists."

The video will appear on FOX News' Glenn Beck tonight. Check local listings for showtimes.

Culture of Vice

By Robert R. Reilly


Robert Reilly notes that a society can withstand any number of persons who try to advance their own moral disorders as public policy. But society cannot survive once it adopts the justifications for those moral disorders as its own. This is what is at stake in the culture war.

In The Ethics Aristotle wrote, "men start revolutionary changes for reasons connected with their private lives." This is also true when revolutionary changes are cultural. What might these "private" reasons be, and why do they become public in the form of revolutionary changes? The answer to these questions lies in the intimate psychology of moral failure.

For any individual, moral failure is hard to live with because of the rebuke of conscience...

MURDER IN UGANDA

by Pastor Scott Lively J.D., PhD, ThD

Evidence from murder points to personal matters, say the police, and the suspect, Kato’s (“gay?”) housemate, remains at large.


Uganda is being murdered. The nation once called “The Pearl of Africa” by Winston Churchill, a lush and beautiful country as fertile as the Nile Delta.

It is the nation that retained its self-rule through centuries of African colonialism, the society that survived even the atrocities of the cannibal cultist Idi Amin, the culture that has been thriving in Christian revival for over a dozen years.

This great and honorable nation, alone in Africa to have all but conquered the scourge of AIDS through abstinence - and whose First Lady led a holy gathering of thousands of believers on the eve of the millennium, dedicating her homeland “to Jesus Christ for a thousand years” - this Uganda, a shining light in the Dark Continent, is being murdered.

The murderers are the lavender Marxists, the now-global network of sexual revolutionaries bent on remaking the entire world in their own perverted image, whose juggernaut has toppled even once mighty Britain, crushing under their lavender boots after eight centuries the symbol of its Christian power: the Magna Carta, whose first principle had proclaimed “The English church must be free!”

These revolutionists of Sodom, who march triumphantly through all the major cities of the western world to flaunt their defeat of moral law, and who hold both Hollywood and the heart of America’s president in their iron grip: These very same zealots have fixed their malevolent gaze on Christian Uganda.

Uganda is the only country in the world with a national holiday commemorating its rejection of sexual perversion. Every June 3 it honors the 22 young men and boys who were tortured and roasted alive in 1886 by homosexual King Mwanga, because they refused to submit to sodomy. Is it any wonder, then, that Uganda has reacted violently against the army of agitators, led by George Soros, who now seek to re-homosexualize Ugandan culture?

It is as if the militant ranks of “Code Pink” were transported back to 1890s America to agitate for “sexual freedom.” Our great grandparents would not have countenanced this. There would have been violence, as there has now been in Uganda.

That is, of course, the strategy:

Agents provocateur goad unsophisticated natives into over-reacting, while the “gay” media lie in wait to catch the images and spin the propaganda that is even now poisoning the gullible against the Ugandans.

Ugandan homosexual activist David Kato was recently beaten to death with a hammer -a horrific crime. These very media have rushed eagerly to judge this a hate crime and to blame those, like me, who have spoken against homosexuality in Uganda. It is the central (but patently false) narrative of the left that all criticism of homosexuality leads inevitably to violence and murder.

Despite propagandistic tactics evidence from the murder points to "personal matters," say the police, and the suspect, Kato’s (“gay?”) housemate, remains at large.

There is indeed evil in Uganda today, but it is not the reaction of Christian and Moslem citizens to the rape of their culture. It is the pink-gloved hand of western powers that are cutting the throat of Africa’s most God-fearing country, and one of the world‘s most promising Christian democracies.


Here is the final vindication:

“We have taken him to Mukono Magistrate’s Court to record an extrajudicial statement,” the source said. “He told us that he killed Kato after he failed to give him a car, a house and money he promised as rewards for having sex with him,” the source said.

Kato is alleged to have bailed the suspect out of Kawuga Prison on January 24, where he has been remanded on charges of theft of a mobile phone. The suspect told police that he stayed with Kato for two days. He accused the deceased of having sex with him and promising to pay him during the period.
