Massachusetts pastor sued for opposition to homosexuality
April 27, 2012
Representing a Ugandan gay and lesbian group, an American legal advocacy organization has filed suit in federal court against Scott Lively, a Protestant pastor who spoke out against homosexuality in Uganda.
The Center for Constitutional Rights alleges that the Massachusetts pastor violated international law by committing acts of “persecution.”
“That’s about as ridiculous as it gets,” said Lively. “I’ve never done anything in Uganda except preach the Gospel and speak my opinion about the homosexual issue.”
