As you may recall Scott Lively, co-author of ‘The Pink Swastika‘ got in the middle of the Uganda flap a few years ago when the forces of the UN and United States targeted Uganda’s government for daring to sustain criminalization of fudge-packing in that unfortunate country.
Now a US district judge (Michael Ponsor, a Rhodes scholar) has ruled that a (UN propped) Ugandan gay NGO may press charges against Scott Lively for “Aiding and abetting in the commission of a crime against humanity as an international law violations for which the ATS furnishes jurisdiction.”
This is getting ugly, and it’s going to come to bloodshed eventually, if they keep this up. Let’s be crystal clear about what the Clinton/UN judge is trying to pull here — he’s ruled that the US falls under international law jurisdiction over what we’d call free speech.
According to the court decision, Scott Lively, a Massachusetts pastor, reportedly traveled to Uganda, spoke out against homosexuality, linked homosexuality to pornography and pedophilia, and assisted government officials with the drafting of anti-homosexuality legislation.
“Widespread, systematic persecution of LGBTI people constitutes a crime against humanity that unquestionably violates international norms,” ruled Judge Michael Posner. “Aiding and abetting in the commission of a crime against humanity is one of the limited group of international law violations for which the ATS furnishes jurisdiction.”
