Scott Douglas Lively (born 14 December 1957) is an American author, attorney, evangelical Christian, Christian Zionist, and anti-homosexual activist.

The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party
The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party is a book first published in 1995 by Scott Lively and Kevin Abrams, an Orthodox Jew. According to the authors, homosexuality found in the NSDAP contributed to the claimed extreme militarism of National Socialist Germany. The book alleges that many leaders, including Adolf Hitler, were homosexual, and that persecutions were only directed at feminine homosexuals. Critics have argued that such attacks originate from false attacks on National Socialism by socialists and communists in the 1930s (implying that they were at this time also anti-homosexual) and that there are various errors in the claims.
Scott Lively has also written other anti-homosexual writings, including one titled The Poisoned Stream, on alleged homosexual influence in history more generally, especially in Germany.
