Anti-Gay Christian Right-Wing Activist Says ‘There’s No Proof’ LGBT People Exist

Linda Harvey

Linda Harvey, the founder of Mission America, says that LGBT people don’t exist. She made the comments during her weekend broadcast while she was attacking the Gay, Lesbian, And Straight Education Network.

Harvey was particularly perturbed by the GLSEN Sports Program which works towards “creating and maintaining an athletic and physical education climate that is based on the core principles of respect, safety and equal access for all students, teachers and coaches regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.”

Harvey believes there is no need for such a program because according to her, there is no proof that LGBT people exist.

Harvey: “There’s one big fact that’s not backed up. There is no proof that there’s ever anything like a gay, lesbian or bisexual or transgendered child, or teen or human. One of the other things you’re gonna see as I mentioned is a big campaign GLSEN’s gonna roll out this year calling for ‘respect,’ respect! Not just for people, but for homosexual lifestyle. The PR campaign to hold up gay as a good thing: the lifestyle, not the person, because there are no such humans.”

Mission America’s major area of focus is homosexuality from a conservative Christian viewpoint, particularly as it relates to American youth. It also opposes the influence of Pagan and feminist spirituality, and provides a range of apologetics for Christianity.

Linda Harvey is hateful and in denial. There are many LGBT people in the public eye who are living proof that gay people exist like Rachel Maddow, Barney Frank, and Ellen DeGeneres, just to name a few. If you are part of the LGBT community, feel free to contact Harvey and her organization to let them know that you exist.

  • Interesting tact, to deny the existence of people because their “lifestyle” cannot be called human. Separating their humanity from how they live makes it so much easier to discriminate and hate. Linda Harvey believes that real people could never be capable of indulging in same sex anything, so that makes gay people something other than human beings. It’s so convenient. Focus on hating the lifestyle and be guilt-free about hurting anyone because they are not human. This idea also works great in wars and slavery.

  • I get up, and go to work every day. When I get home, I have dinner, work on my projects, talk to a couple of friends, and go to bed. On weekends I like to play video games.

    That’s my lifestyle.

    According to this woman, you now know who I like to sleep with.

  • “They don’t exsist?” This from someone who believes in an invisible man….who lives in the sky?

  • Being someone that this nutcase would say is straight, you can obviously say that I am not all attracted to ‘gay people’ but to be honest there is no such thing, gay is simply happy. If she is talking about homosexual people, they don’t exist either, all there are, are people who just have a different preference, there is nothing wrong with that, if God takes an issue with it, it is up to God to resolve it, hence free will. We make the choices that we want and we answer for them. Your choice is your own, if you want to sleep with a man, so be it, if you want to sleep with a woman so be it.

  • *read thoroughly before flaming*

    She is right “gay people” don’t exist. Why? Because “gay people” are actually people who are just like anyone else, human, able to love and be romantic. Term itself is just a means to categorize something she fears and does not understand. If anything it’s her own fault for bring ignorant and creating “gays”. The need to categorize something that is feared is often the result of blind ignorance to begin with. If anything, she as a faux Christian created LGBT terminology as a means classify what she opposes or fears, so therefore, she is actually a hypocrite, fingers her own view and believes LGBT does exist. She is pretty stupid for wording things in such a poor manner that her words are so easily misconstrued.

    Let the ignorant say stupid things, this way, we have more lols.

    P.s. This, reply is also a means to think about the origin of words and terminology as a means to delightfully counter the idiocy of those people in the world who find a need to hate something harmless.

  • There are cultures in existence where men and women live separately. Boys grow up with their father(s), girls with their mother(s). To me that is proof that the only reason for a man and a woman to get together is to reproduce. There is no proof that there are straight people.

  • This Harvey creature is EXTREMELY lucky that American LGBQT people are, on the whole, a peaceable, law-abiding and civil lot.

    How very fortunate this creature is that it is living in a country and culture where, by and large, people do not express their outrage at idiots like her by more physical, violent means.

    Luckily it looks very old (sexless) and worn out indeed. I predict it won’t last long in this world, and whatever it spews will die when it does.

  • I am a teenager and I am bisexual, so you’re saying I don’t exist? Oh my gosh I can see my self disappear! Oh noo!! …oh wait never mind I’m still here..get your head out of your ass woman

  • I would guess this is one of those ‘you aren’t born gay’ things.

    So to her no person is gay, they choose to be gay.


  • Lesley Marriott

    Mrs. Harvey seems a little like James Keegstra who denied the act of evil that was the Holocaust. Please, Stop spreading your vile words of hate and misunderstandings. We exist..
    Saying that we do not exist gives us more reason to celebrate our pride as individuals and as a collective. We will continue to have our day of pride so long as people wrong us and say we do not exist or the like.
    If you can be straight and exist why can we not be Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, or Transsexual, or even Asexual? We are a peaceful group of people all that we ask is acceptance.

  • WAIT A MINUTE… What the hell was all that lesbian porn I just watched??

  • Hmmm, I wish Miss Harvey would email my parents so that they can know that I am not real. My mother would LOVE to know that almost dying giving birth to me was just a figment of her imagination. Also, if I don’t exist I guess no one is really reading this because I am not real. Go figure. Guess I’d better get down to the IRS and let them know they owe me quite a bit of money back for all those years I’ve been paying them because I am not real.

  • No one is born a religionist. It’s a lifestyle choice.

  • What? I´m pretty sure I exist…

  • She’s right, gays don’t exist. Honey, we LIVE!

  • There’s no proof god exists either. You know how I know LGBT people exist? Faith ;)

  • Maybe she lives in a compound where everyone says they think like her? She obviously doesn’t have a hairdresser.

    Seriously though, I’ve heard this kind of magical thinking before – it means our queerness is an illness or addiction if from which we were to recover, we would all be straight. I think they get this from the inevitability back to gay sex from those they’ve tried to cure. And many of them think we’ve been molested or had weak mothers or something which caused our ‘condition.’ Two fallacious and disproved arguments, but you can’t tell them anything because they live in a box.

    PS I’ve been in my gay ol relationship for 11 years, we’ve got 2 kids, there’s nothing compulsive or addictive about it. I love my parents and grandparents, they love me, and I’ve never even come close to being molested.

  • Looks like she has zits on her face. She should clean up her own house b-4 talking about anybody else.

  • If we don’t exist, then they can’t blame us for AIDS.

  • Women like you can’t be good mothers. I’m telling you this because I was praying for you to have a queer kid but then I thought about him/she/it and felt so sorry of growing up with an ignorant for a mother and that it made me change thoughts.

    May God make you be in a situation where the only way you will be out OK its help by the must flaming queen there is.

  • lol wow well let her live in her own little world and believe whatever she would like..but we are out there and I am living proof..
    I wish people would worry more about kids getting killed and abused.. rather then worrying about gay people what does it really matter we are not hurting anyone and the fact she goes to church and sets arounds and put judgment on people shows what kinds person she is.. but no everyone is going to agree and she has the right to say what she wants..

  • I wish she and people like her didn’t exist. Yet I know that they do.

  • I think, therefore I am. Therefore, she does not exist.

  • I think, therefore I am. So, she doesn’t exist.

  • There’s no proof God exists, but she still goes to church every Sunday.

  • OMFG

    So I don’t exist? LMAO!! She shows great intelligence doesn’t she *rolls eyes* If I don’t exist then I shouldn’t have to pay my bills or for food. Everything should be free to me since I don’t exist. lol

    I can’t believe she actually thinks WE and LGBT community doesn’t exist! Its extremely heart breaking and it makes me worried for the world. With people like her in it, its gonna be a dark place.

  • …. First, I would like to know why she thinks that. Because she believes it’s all in their heads, and everyone is magically straight? If that’s so, I can say the same thing of Christianity. There is no proof of christian people, especially not in today’s society.

    Jesus CHRIST, their supposed role model, spent time with people the jewish deemed ‘unclean’ for that time, and among them, probably homosexuals. He talked to prostitutes, tax collectors, lepers, and gentiles. He LOVED them, just as much as anyone else, and cursed the leaders of the jewish church for being so hateful, bigoted, intolerant, and hypocritical.

    HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM. If he was here right now, what do you think he would say of this woman, and Westboro, and countless other haters and de-humanizers of the gay?

  • At risk of sounding like a preachy lesbian, I just have to say: I wonder if she realizes that there is one thing missing from her diatribe: love. In the Christian faith, we are called upon to love our neighbors as ourselves….the greatest commandment is love. So, to Linda Harvey – you are failing to do the one thing you are supposed to do as a Christian.

  • If you don’t exist, then you should not have to pay taxes.. it’s only a thought

  • If you don’t exist then shoudld not have to pay taxes.

  • This is why christians can’t have nice things. If I don’t exist does that mean I don’t have to go to work today? Cuz.. I’m SO down for that! How is it that Jesus spoke of tolerance and love and understanding and the openness of a truly caring society and his fan-club are all a bunch of psychotic hateful monsters that leap at the first chance to set fire to something they don’t like. I do not understand. The witch trials, the Inquisition, the Church’s involvement with the Nazi’s, Putting a pope in “office” that was part of the Hitler Youth. Talk about missing the point. Now you’re saying that LGBT people don’t exist? Really?! I would like to know, madam, how someone can be SO hateful, so bigoted. I mourn you Miss. You have no room left in your heart to love god, there’s too much sickness there. On a side note : Mark! LBGT…Q?! What’s the Q stand for?! there’s always another letter! Damnit I”m always the last to know!

    • Just a quick reminder that not all who call themselves Christian are “psychotic hateful monsters”. And, though I’m not of the LGBTQ community, I do know that the Q stands for “Queer” as some are trying to desensitize the word. (Though I do have some family members who consider me ‘queer’, mainly for my position on gay rights. ;-) )

    • Q is for questioning, and I completley agree with you!

    • I completely agree – while I am a Christian, it astounds me that people can make hateful remarks like this while trying to justify it by perverting Christianity to suit their view.

      The Q, from what I’ve heard, stands for “questioning”.

    • “Questioning” ….. Really? What next? Who comes up with this nonsense? Like we need another inclusive letter. how about we forget the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transexual Transgendered Questioning and just go for Just Not Us … it will save us an awful lot of trouble trying to organise Pride events in the future.

  • Um, wow. I wonder if her head would explode should someone organise a nice, big, public orgy in front of her house…

    We should totally do that ;)

  • What a ridiculous woman. She probably thinks the world is flat and the sun revolves around the earth. Where’s the evidence that Mary was a virgin and Jesus walked on water?

  • Wow. So, you mean to tell me that after years of sisterly torcher by younger lesbian sister didn’t really happen? That’s great! Guess it means I don’t have to keep going to my psychologist after all!

    Seriously tho- these people are nuts. I will not sit by and deny the existence of my baby sister and one of the best friends in my life. Grow up all ready and realize love knows no gender if you are loving truly with your whole heart.

  • This is not denial, it’s plain stupidity. If you see a dog, you can’t say there’s no such thing as a dog. If you see a guy having sex with a guy you can’t say he’s not having sex with a guy.

    She doesn’t exist!

  • Um… So, uh… what crack is this chick smoking? Seriously, what hardcore amazingly hallucinogenic drugs is this woman taking? Because… wow, just wow.

    Is this the Christian Right’s next tactic? I mean, the trend towards equality is really gaining steam, so if she sticks her fingers in her ears, shuts her eyes and sings ‘La la la I can’t see you!’ does she think that’s going to, you know, work or something? I suppose she does believe in an invisible sky daddy and a Hebrew zombie, so she’s already got to be not wrapped too tight, if you know what I mean…

  • This lady is just too crazy for words. She is expending so much energy trying to hurt people that by her own mission “do not exist”. Maybe she needs to talk about this before the psychosis proceeds any further.

  • I’m pretty sure that if I had sweaty, screeching, spit-lubed monkey sex with my boyfriend in front of her, Ms. Harvey would have no alternative other than to admit that I exist. However, the thought of having sex in front of her makes me shrivel to the point that I might actually medically be considered female. In short, this homophobic bitch can kiss my ass and bark at the hole.

    • David: “kiss my ass and bark at the hole”! LMAO! That’s one I have never heard and I am planning on using it at the first possible opportunity! Thanks for that! ;D

      Linda S.

  • This is God. I apologize for this scam.

    Linda Harvey does not exist. Do you honestly believe I would allow such a vile, hateful woman to use my name and my church to spread her bile against any of my children?

    If such a crone did exist, I would strike her down to hell.

    Go back to being happy, and don’t let these false prophets fool you! :)

  • Get over yourself Linda. I knew that I was physically and romantically attracted to other guys when I was 4 or 5 years old. I have been SEXUALLY active with guys since I was extremely young. I knew that I was gay as a pre-teen, as a teenager and as an adult. I have never had any real desire for women. Back as a younger teen I did try fantasizing about a few women because everything in society told me I was supposed to like “girls” – the fantasies quickly switched over to men.

    My HUSBAND and I have been together for 20 years. We have bought a house together AND made a life together.

    How can anyone in this day and age be so bloody ignorant? I don’t know how your tongue doesn’t jump out of your mouth and try to strangle you!

    • I think that her large intestine, in a desperate attempt to save lifekind leaped straight up through her throat and strangled her brain (apologies to Douglas Adams, R.I.P.)

  • Oh, my….. may God help this woman because clearly she is demented… How on earth could this come out of someone’s mouth? I calmly ask you.. This is so sick… so very sick… I will never in my life understand such people.. there is absolutely no reasoning with them but for them to be allowed to utter this nonsense and it be reported is pure and simple abuse.. She is another one who should be committed..Now I can understand someone not understanding homosexuality…but to deny it… that’s an entirely different matter.. She is to be pitied but for me, this is a hard thing to do.. I pity the poor, confused teenager, the one struggling with his sexuality, the married man/ woman… the mother/ father….and words like this only harm…. it should be criminal… à mon avis.. .

  • Uh, guess I don’t exist, then. Oh, dear. This is going to be incredibly awkward to explain to my mother that she spent 24 hours in labor delivering an imaginary baby…

  • Oh, denial is such a wonderful malady to suffer from! I guess if I don’t see it, it doesn’t exist! That means throughout History, we have not benefited from the many creations from the LGBTQ community. If one has a belief in a Higher Power, that requires a bit of faith, no one, to my knowledge, has ever seen this Higher Power, so I wonder if that Higher Power really does exist.
    I am 50 years of age, and to the best of my recollection have been gay all of those 50 years, do I really exist?

  • I can not believe that there are people who seriously believe what this woman is saying. I cant believe she is actually saying it where someone can HEAR her much less allowing it to be put into print!!! There is homosexually in all living creatures, it is proven!!! poor poor woman, such delusions.

  • Maybe she should go to the theatre…
