Scott Lively is a Complete Douchebag

Unless you live under a rock, you've heard about the brutal murder on Wednesday of Ugandan gay activist David Kato.  Many in both Uganda and the US are pointing fingers at three evangelicals who took a trip in March to the impoverished African nation in order to give a conference denouncing homosexuality. 

"'David’s death is a result of the hatred planted in Uganda by U.S. evangelicals in 2009,' said Val Kalende, the chairwoman of one of Uganda’s gay rights groups. 'The Ugandan government and the so-called U.S. evangelicals must take responsibility for David’s blood.'"

Scott Lively, one of the three and author of the book Pink Swastika which blames Nazi violence on same-sex relationships in German government, decided that he would do some detective-ing on his own, and has offered us a theory.  Pastor Scott is on the case!
"But in a statement posted on the website Defend the Family today, the Springfield pastor made no mention of his 2009 trip, nor did he condemn the murder or offer his condolences. Lively also said he would 'caution the media against assuming Cato’s [sic] murder was a hate crime.'

"Instead, Lively suggested Kato may have been killed by someone with whom he had been romantically involved, despite the fact that no one familiar with the case has suggested Kato was killed by a gay person, let alone someone with whom he had had a sexual relationship. There remains a 'possibility' Kato was 'killed by a "gay" lover,' Lively wrote, and likened Kato's death to that of Carlos Castro, a Portuguese journalist who was allegedly beaten to death and castrated by a male model in New York City earlier this month."

Also, the gays are to blame for global warming and cancer.  And, uh, taxes.  Plus sharks.  Yeah, that too.  Sharks.

Thank goodness for Pastor Scott, or this would never have been solved.  But wait!  I have a theory!  David Kato was killed by little gremlins wearing tutus!  It's just as valid-- since there's no evidence for EITHER.

So not only is he denying any plausibility he had in Kato's death, he is instead putting blame on the gays?  What a dirtbag.
