Update on Leftist SMUG ‘Crimes Against Humanity’ Lawsuit against Scott Lively

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013
Judge Michael Ponsor

Judge Michael Ponsor once opined that “judges are the unelected legislators of mankind.”

Liberal Clinton-appointed judge allows case to proceed

Folks, our friend and culture war hero Scott Lively sent out the following Alert yesterday regarding the outrageous “Crimes Against Humanity” lawsuit against him. (We’ve have added emphasis and a few web links to the original.) For more information on the “Center for Constitutional Rights” (CCR), the far-left group that Lively labels as “Cultural Marxists,” see this excellent report by the conservative Capital Research Center. (And yet somehow, Grove City College Assistant Professor and pro-family-advocate-turned-homosexuality-defender Warren Throckmorton — who finds time to stringently critique various conservatives like David Barton and Lively — curiously describes CCR as a “human rights” group.”) Please pray for Scott Lively and support his group, Defend the Family International. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

By Scott Lively

Friends,Today Federal Judge Michael Ponsor denied my motion to allow me to appeal his denial of my Motion to Dismiss the outrageous SMUG lawsuit. Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG) has sued me for “Crimes Against Humanity” for preaching against homosexuality in Uganda. (But it is not the Africans that are at fault in this travesty, the real scoundrels are a coalition of Cultural Marxists led by the Center for Constitutional Rights.)

I am being judged according to a European legal standard in my own federal court system for speech that is 100% protected in both America and Uganda. The Alien Tort Statute (ATS) which allowed this abomination into our U.S. court system was recently stripped of its power to hold Americans accountable for their conduct in foreign countries by the United States Supreme Court in the Kiobel case. Since then every case which had been filed under the ATS has been dismissed except for two. One which had unusual facts was not dismissed but the judge in that case certified it for immediate appeal on his own initiative.The other is my case. Today, Judge Ponsor denied my motion to appeal the part of his recent ruling (against my Motion to Dismiss) that dealt with the ATS. I am thus the only defendant in America still being sued under the ATS.

Click on the link below or the graphic at right for a PDF “Fact Sheet on Uganda and Homosexuality,” by pro-family advocate Scott Lively — who has been sued by the Ugandan homosexual group SMUG (Sexual Minorities Uganda) — working with the far-left American group Center for Constitutional Rights — for “Crimes Against Humanity” for his Christian advocacy in that African nation. We’ve also reprinted the Fact Sheet below (after the jump).

Few people in the world have been lied about and demonized by homosexual activists as much as Lively. This Fact Sheet is merely the beginning of what must become a comprehensive effort to set the record straight. Clearly, the nefarious goal the CCR and its leftist/LGBT comrades in its legal harassment of Lively is to intimidate pro-family advocates everywhere from speaking out against the aggressive homosexual-bisexual-transgender agenda. In the Left’s playbook, the ends justify the means — but even for the Hard Left, charging a decent, Christian man like Scott Lively with “Crimes Against Humanity” — for his public advocacy — is beyond outrageous. In fact, it is evil and profoundly un-American. And yet, Clinton-nominated federal District Judge Michael Ponsor has allowed the SMUG lawsuit to proceed. We will be following this case closely. Please pray for Scott Lively. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH
