New Coalition Formed to Fight “Homo-Fascism”
Two major anti-gay groups in the U.S. have merged to form the Coalition for Family Values, a united front to fight what they call the ‘global LGBT agenda.’ The coalition’s aim is to spread Russian-style anti-gay legislation throughout the world. So far, they say, 70 anti-gay activists and religious leaders from the United States, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom and Brazil have signed on.
Scott Lively of Defend the Family International and Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality unveiled the organization at the National Press Club in Washington. The two men praised the recently enacted Russian law that call for bans on gay “propaganda.
“As the 2014 winter Olympics come to a close in Sochi, Russia, we want to praise the Russian Federation for providing much-needed leadership in restoring family values in public policy, and to encourage the governments of the world to follow the excellent example of what the Russian government has said in 2013 and 2014 by banning LGBT propaganda to children and limiting the adoption of children to natural families only,” said Lively who also co-authored the book, The Pink Swastika, which argues that homosexuals were the driving force behind the Holocaust.
Not only are they spreading their hateful messages here, they travel the world advocating for the persecution of gays an lesbians. Back in 2007, Lively conducted a 50-city speaking tour of Russia and says the new gay propaganda bill reflects policies that he advocated at that time. He is also being sued in U.S. federal court by a Uganda-based gay-rights group for his meddling in the affairs of that East African country. The suit contends that he was a key figure in consultations that produced tough anti-gay legislation in 2009 which led to the prosecution of Ugandan gays.
Lively believes that most family-values crusaders too timid and said that he believes strong laws, such as the recently-passed Russian measure that criminalizes public support of same-sex relationships, are the only way to keep gay activists from “tearing down the fabric of society.”
