MassLive: John Oliver Won’t Debate Controversial Springfield Pastor Scott Lively

By Brian Steele

There will be no debate.

Springfield pastor and candidate for Massachusetts governor Scott Lively called out John Oliver, host of the news/opinion show “Last Week Tonight,” in a MassLive.com article that detailed Oliver’s distaste for Lively’s notoriously anti-gay activism. Oliver blamed him, in part, for draconian laws in Uganda that punish homosexuals with decades in prison.

Lively said his remarks were taken out of context, and Oliver could never go toe-to-toe with him in an unscripted debate.

Now, he won’t have to.

It took a few weeks worth of phone calls and emails to media relations representatives, but HBO finally gave MassLive.com its official response to the challenge on Friday: no thanks.

    No surprise here. A typical cowardly lackey for the Plantation Masters of the nation like Oliver, in this case fighting in defense of the indefensible Homosexual/Sodomy Movement, will never debate a true man like Scott Lively who would annihilate him in any real debate. It is the same with the similar fraud of Global Warming – the Plantation Masters send out their lackeys to declare victory and will never ever admit the total lies, corruption, and monstrous evil which are the foundation of their attack against the nation. Just keep spreading and repeating the lies and via the Social Engineering ( dumbing down ) of the populace you get the docile, compliant, and obedient populace which you desire – in this case those who; as many writers on this website and indeed whole political parties as with the Libertarians, Greens, and Democrats; will willingly sacrifice the very children of the nation; especially the young boys, to their soul annihilation via the Homosexual/Sodomy Movement. May God bless Scott Lively for his courageous defense of the children of our nation from the monsters, and their monstrous attack, who work to strangle the souls of the children of the nation.

    I have to agree with part of Grundmann’s statement above. Running away from debate is cowardly. This places Oliver in the same group as Vernon.

    Dr. Olver’s name is spelled Olver (Ph.D., MIT, Chemistry), not Oliver.

    Different person. The article refers to “John Oliver, host of the news/opinion show “Last Week Tonight,” “

    Fuck Lively but Oliver is a twat. It’s easy to bash a guy, even a turd like Lively, with a heavily produced segment and a teleprompter that keeps you on script. At least have the decency to step up to the plate when you’re called out.
