Lively Joins Perkins Among the Hopelessly Deluded

It’s fascinating to me to watch the Christian right come to terms with the fact that they’re so obviously losing the fight against LGBT equality. A couple weeks ago Tony Perkins claimed that they were winning the war on equality. Now Scott Lively says sure we’re losing, but in 2014 we’re gonna make a comeback!

Yes, 2013 was the year of the LGBT agenda. But I‘m predicting 2014 will be the Year of the Pro-Family Push-Back!

The homosexual movement may have built up a formidable army of activists and an enormous war machine over the past forty years, but even at its best it is no match for an awakened Christian church. And for the first time in my 25 years of service as a Christian social activist I believe the church has been awakened. It hasn’t buckled on its armor. It’s not even standing on its feet yet. But the church of Jesus Christ — the universal body of Bible-believing Christians spanning every denomination and confession — finally has its eyes open and is aware that the enemy has breached the outer walls…

At the close of 2013 the Christian church is now wide awake and concerned. The giant is sitting up on the edge of the bed, ready to put on his shoes and go out to deal with this problem.

It’s just a flesh wound! Come back here and fight like a man! Sorry Scott, you’re wrong. You’ve already lost this fight. You lost it a long time ago. You lost it the moment gay people started coming out of the closet. Now virtually everyone under the age of 40 or so knows a gay person and thus knows that your attempts to portray them as demonic pedophiles out to destroy the world are total bullshit.

And I have no intention at all of winning this one graciously. I’m going to laugh in your face and metaphorically bathe in your tears.

    This decision in Utah should really get Lively’s blood pressure elevated.

    Utah was a big surprise; it’ll be interesting watching that play-out to see if the ruling can hold and be applied state-wide.

    The big fight right now is in Indiana.

    Over the centuries the Christians have always managed to find a group of people to be demonized — pagans, Muslims, witches, communists, and now the gays. I wonder which group they will choose for special treatment when all the gay bashing has stopped?

    True Christians ™ are just awakening to the decades of LGBT equality activism. Their omnipotent God/Holy Spirit is more than a bit slow. Its next performance review will be brutal.

    “We have not yet begun to fight!” Except for the ~40 years of fighting that I personally remember, not to mention all the centuries before that. And scolding the church for having been slack up until this very moment is standard fundy guilt-tripping fare.

    And by the time he gets back, the RentBoy will be gone.

    The giant is sitting on the edge of the bed, ready to go out and massacre the heathens when there’s a touch on his arm and a deep, masculine voice says “Larry let’s do it again”.

    Haven’t been paying attention, have you? Non-religious are already being prepped for The Treatment. Frankly, I can’t wait for the curtain to go up.

    I’ll give the gay war machine one thing, it sure as hell knows how to harness the power of nonviolence. Now if only they would stop dehumanizing traditional Christians!

    The homosexual christianist movement may have built up a formidable army of activists and an enormous war machine over the past forty years,

    These fuckers project like IMAX.
    And every defeat is sweet like nectar.

    So …. is he trying to argue that Christianity is essentially Voltron?

    I’m amused by the way he couches his argument in military terms: “formidable army”; “enormous war machine.” And now the church must buckle on its armor and stride forth to vanquish this “war machine.” It does indeed suggest something like Voltron.
