Meet Linda Harvey – One of America’s Most Bigoted Homophobes
October 26, 2011
Linda Harvey, the conservative, right-wing, and of course Christian host of Mission America doesn’t think parents should let their children be treated by a gay or lesbian doctor or nurse. Harvery founded Mission:America, which according to the website is “a Christian pro-family organization tracking current cultural issues.” Their main objective is to fight the “gay agenda.” In other words, Mission America is a hate group.
Last week, Harvey spoke on her radio show, saying that parents should forbid gay and lesbian health care employees from treating their children because their sexual orientation is “erroneously influential to children.”
“There are a few homosexual doctors treating kids, there are far more nurses, LPNs, technicians and other health care workers in these lifestyles,” Harvey claims. “Should your child ever be hospitalized, you do not want your child treated or cared for by one of these members of the Children’s Hospital gay employees group. I would like to suggest that parents think long and hard about this. If you want your children to admire people who proclaim a homosexual lifestyle, they’re involvement with your child during a hospital stay is sure to be an influence.”
This latest nonsense is only the most recent outburst from Harvey, who has said multiple times that there is no such thing as gay and lesbian people, merely it is “the lifestyle, not the person, because there are no such humans.” Harvey has also expressed her support for the Ugandan “Kill The Gays” bill.
She has denounced the It Gets Better Project, saying “it’s supposed to encourage kids, that’s great. Encourage kids, say, you know if you’re having trouble, you’re getting bullied, you feel despaired, don’t give up. That would be a worthy goal if they stop there. But no they tag on to it approval of homosexuality and the implication that anybody who objects is just like those bullies out there and they’re leading you or others into suicide. That’s just wrong, it’s evil, it’s dark…”
Linda Harvey is just wrong. She’s evil. And of course, she’s dark in that she’s living in the dark ages. She’s America’s Queen of Hate. Her website has removed contact information. The Christian radio station that broadcasts her show is WRFD-AM in Colombus Ohio. Here is their contact information. Here is a list of the businesses that advertise on the station.
