Being gay a bigger sin than the ‘unfortunate event’ of slavery say US Christian pundits

Black people should get over slavery because homosexuality is a bigger sin, according to two Christian pundits in the US. 


Anti-LGBT activist Scott Lively and Tennessee pastor Richard May got together on Lively’s Breaking News Bible Study show to discuss the subject. 

During their conversation, May said that slavery was “an unfortunate event” and “not something to lose your mind over”, adding that the Bible compared it to “bad kings and wars and famines”.


Lively’s contribution included the reveal that his father’s severe mental illness ruined his childhood, but that he isn’t “sitting in a chair and crying about what a terrible lot I got in life.” 

“There is a perspective in all of this,” May said. “From a biblical point of view, there are things much worse.”


He then said: “Now, I’m going to hit a nerve with this one: which is worse, slavery or homosexuality?” 

“Homosexuality by far,” Lively answered.


“By far,” May responded. “We need to herald that. I mean, come on, guys. Our priorities are all mixed up.”

Lively has plenty of form when it comes to anti-LGBT activity. The one-time member of the American Family Association famously co-wrote a book entitled The Pink Swastika, in which he argued that gay people are “the true inventors of Nazism and the guiding force behind many Nazi atrocities”. 


He also claimed that Western society is trying to spread ‘the disease’ of homosexuality to children, saying: “They’re looking for other people to be able to prey upon. When they see a child that’s from a broken home it’s like they have a flashing neon sign over their head.”
