Scott Lively is an anti-gay activist who's credited for fanning the flames of homophobic hatred in African countries like Uganda, a place where it is now extremely dangerous to be gay. He has equated homosexuality to pedophilia (as bigots do), and wrote a book called The Pink Swastika, in which he and co-writer Kevin E. Abrams state, "homosexuals [are] the true inventors of Nazism and the guiding force behind many Nazi atrocities." He is running for governor of Massachusetts. He is a clown. When people take him seriously, he is a powerful clown and that is unfortunate (and potentially devastating), but let's not let that distract from the fact that he is indeed a clown.

In the video above, from an interview with the U.K.'s Channel 4, he plays a game that few civilized people would admit to enjoying, Gay or Not Gay?, with President Barack Obama. "I think Mr. Obama may very well be a homosexual himself. He's certainly a radical homosexualist, meaning a person whether homosexual or not who is a hundred percent invested in the homosexual lifestyle," is the takeaway quote.

This is a ridiculous person. This is America's Next Top Fred Phelps.

The full Channel 4 package, which gives good context to Lively's ridiculousness as an activist and human being, is below:
