Anti-gay activist Scott Lively, who stands accused of helping Uganda craft its anti-gay laws, told me he believes sodomy and adultery should be illegal. When pressed, he said the laws should be on the books like marijuana laws to stop people from doing it in public.  I pointed out that we don’t have a rash of sodomy acts being done in public.  He claimed his recent comments that we need an “angry mob…surging through the streets” was just a metaphor.

    If adultery were illegal we’d have to build more prisons, unless he’s one of the old testament types who thinks stoning is a good punishment. Will he be first in line to take his punishment ya think?

          Okay, we can share… about lions, should we feed them as well?

          • Kim Serrahn April 28th, 2015 at 1:12 pm

            Nay, don’t want the lions to get indigestion. Fire ants hills………… now there’s an idea.

          • Larry Schmitt April 28th, 2015 at 1:34 pm

            Fire ants would be worse. They can take a lion down, but a lion can’t take fire ants down. Slow, agonizing death by fire ants.

    people like this who tend to shout the loudest, are usually the ones that get busted for doing exactly what they profess to hate. lol

    why are we giving this moron air time?

  5. Larry Schmitt April 28th, 2015 at 12:12 pm

    By all means, let’s make everything but what George Carlin called “man on top, get it over quick” sex illegal. And the economic boost created by installation of cameras in everyone’s bedroom will be enormous. We’ll have to create a whole new department to monitor them. By the way, “Lively” (I bet life with you is anything but), by some definitions, fellatio is also considered to be sodomy. So no more hummers for you. Either giving or receiving.

    • bpollen April 29th, 2015 at 4:58 am

      Sodomy is essentially any non-procreative sex. And who hasn’t been guilty of jerking the gherkin, assuming your HAVE a gherkin?

  6. illinoisboy1977 April 28th, 2015 at 12:36 pm

    I don’t think Sodomy should be illegal. The government has no business telling you what practices two consenting adults can enjoy. I don’t think adultery should be illegal, but I think it should be actionable if the spouse of the adulterer wishes to file against it.
    Marriage is a contract, whereby you promise to forsake all others and share yourself exclusively with your spouse. If you don’t want to be faithful to your spouse, there’s this thing called “divorce”. If you cheat, that should be grounds for favorable treatment of the sleighted spouse, by the courts, in divorce proceedings where “infidelity” is listed as the cause for dissolution of the marriage and can be proven.

    • whatthe46 April 28th, 2015 at 12:44 pm

      the courts will never close and cases will be backed for years to come.

    • Larry Schmitt April 28th, 2015 at 1:15 pm

      How is that already not the case? Being “actionable” in a divorce court is not the same thing as making it illegal. Similar to decriminalizing marijuana use.

      • illinoisboy1977 April 28th, 2015 at 3:46 pm

        In many states, you’re not allowed to use infidelity as a factor in asset division. Many states consider it a non-issue.

  7. Larry Schmitt April 28th, 2015 at 1:17 pm

    I listened to thw whole clip. I usually don’t, especially when it’s a conservative. Lively essentially wants a law on the books that won’t be enforced. What’s the point? And how would a violation be proved, short of cameras everywhere? Another pointless exercise.

    • allison1050 April 28th, 2015 at 1:26 pm

      I think he must have dabbled his toes in the waters orrrr he wants to and is fighting the urge to. ;o)

    I have a law this guy has never heard about, but would swear he subscribes to…..

    Matthew 7:1-3King James Version (KJV)

    7 Judge not, that ye be not judged.

    2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

    3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

    • Larry Schmitt April 28th, 2015 at 1:32 pm

      All those self-righteous pr!cks never seem to remember #2 there. They seem a little too sure about who’s going to hell and why, and never consider their own actions. I’m looking at you, Huckleberry. You, too, Lively. And Robertson.

      • Suzanne McFly April 28th, 2015 at 1:37 pm

        I don’t know which is worse, to actually judge others or to exploit those who do and campaign on their fears.

    • anothertoothpick April 28th, 2015 at 4:50 pm

      Jamming the bible down their pie hole is the best way to deal with the thumpers.

      I love to teach them after they had a miracle.

    He seems to allege that sodomy and adultery are rampant in this country. I’m sure he has thousands of videos as proof of his allegations – videos he obtained from peeking in windows in he middle of the night.

  11. William April 28th, 2015 at 4:28 pm

    OK, but just remember, if you incarcerate adulterers, the taxpayer has to feed them.

    • JamesMMartin April 30th, 2015 at 8:36 am

      Newt belongs in prison, law or no law.

  12. whatthe46 April 28th, 2015 at 4:57 pm

    no more oral sex people. its one of the definitions of sodomy don’t cha know.

    • Khary A April 28th, 2015 at 5:39 pm

      Well then I for one don’t wanna live in a world without sodomy.

      • whatthe46 April 28th, 2015 at 5:43 pm

        lol and at work. thanks. lol

        • Khary A April 28th, 2015 at 5:47 pm

          Interestingly enough work is where I learned about sodomy. I get re-educated about it every paycheck.

          • whatthe46 April 28th, 2015 at 6:54 pm

            i’m so glad i’m home now, but i think even the neighbors heard me yell out loud at that one. lol

    “Just a metaphor” he says.
    Has Scott Lively really run out of excuses already or does he just not care? Over here in Britain we seem to be suffering from a bigoted hacking-fest in which various politicians and media personalities cry victim after posting offensive messages on their social media pages.

  14. Gadea April 28th, 2015 at 7:05 pm

    Lively, is an interesting fellow.

  15. frambley1 April 29th, 2015 at 12:55 am

    I’m not sure this fellow understand what a metaphor is. It is fascinating to me how one can spend their whole life with such concern about what other people do in their private lives.
