Scott Lively, an attorney and pastor who has advocated for anti-LGBT laws around the world, won 28% of the vote at the convention at the end of April — much more than the 15% needed to get onto the ballot to challenge incumbent Gov. Charlie Baker in the primary.
He is the former author of a book that surmised that the holocaust was caused by, yes.. you guessed it, a conspiracy of gay men within the nazi party.
Want to read the book? /snark. Check out “The Pink Swastika,” and read how the militant gay men controlled the holocaust.
He also was active in Africa supporting anti-gay causes, and he helped lead to the passage of the Uganda Anti-Homosexuality Act, a 2009 law that in some cases called for the death penalty.
