Pastor Faces Federal Suit for Sharing Views on Homosexuality


Scott Lively

A Massachusetts pastor has landed in federal court to defend himself for sharing his opinion on homosexuality and pornography.

A foreign group called Sexual Minorities of Uganda (SMUG) filed suit against Scott Lively based on the Alien Tort Statute (ATS). The ATS provides a cause of action for violations of international laws that are “specific, universal and obligatory.”

Courts have found torture, cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment; genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity; summary execution, prolonged arbitrary detention and forced disappearance to be actionable under the ATS.

The lawsuit claims that beginning in 2002, Lively preached in Ugandan churches and shared his opinion on homosexuality and pornography. It further claims that as a result, some members of the so-called LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex) community faced discrimination—and one in ...

I would say that the more proper action would be for the government of Kenya to bar this pastor's future visits to their country – if they have found that he has caused or encouraged violent behavior in their country. This seems to be the way most countries handle people whose presence in their country they would find objectionable. One well-known example of a country doing this, Pastor Terry Jones banned from UK after 9/11 Threat.
