  •  NOTE: per Dan, Judge called LIVELY.. GOEBBELS .. (0+ / 0-)

    That does not bode well for his case.
    Here is Dan Choi's full personal note from his day at the hearing:

    I was inspired seeing the dozen gay Ugandans and a packed courthouse of supporters (+2 overflow courtrooms) Seeing the "christians" with murder on their lips cheering on the Goebbels (in the words of the judge, mind you) of our day made me nauseous. Three times I extended my hand to Rev. Scott Lively but he refused until the last time, begrudgingly. Even warlords show courage and mutual respect enough to shake the hand of their enemies.

    Of all the opponents of gay equality whom I've met and shook hands with (including Tony Perkins, Elaine Donnelly, The God Hates Fags church and others, Scott Lively was the only one who displayed such cowardice. He said "No, not today." and nervously motioned his hand no. After the hearing, i told him my hand would always be extended he said. okay and looked away. THen he finally shook my hand nervously and agreed to have a chat once this is all over.

    I am a pastor's kid. I have never EVER seen a pastor so childish but I am glad he saw our signs. I do hope that he has a Saul of Tarsus moment, to know that when he persecutes and tells Ugandans to do his dirty work that he persecutes Jesus, and remembers the verse:
     Matthew 25:40 Inasmuch as you do to the least of my brothers and sisters, you do it unto me.

    Congratulations to Pam Spees at Center for Constitutional Rights and the BRAVE Ugandans who risked their lives and will continue to do so upon return this week to their native land. We pray for you, we uplift you. You uplift us. I am so ashamed that my country allows such an export of hate and sets a demeaning example, and that American Christians are not louder against Lively's hateful representations in Uganda.
