Judge Says Its "Crackpot Bigotry"- Lively Appeals

A Springfield pastor is appealing a  court ruling that was in favor of him. 

Judge Michael Ponsor accepted a  motion for summary judgment this week made by Scott Lively in the  federal lawsuit brought against him by a Uganda civil rights group that  alleged Lively encouraged persecution against gay people in that country  when he visited. 

Lively is appealing because he didn't like the  language used by Ponsor in his memorandum, in which the judge accused  the pastor of advancing "crackpot bigotry". 

Liberty Counsel, the  conservative legal group that represented Lively, called the language in  Ponsor's document unlawful and improper.
