She thinks LGBT people do not exist. She has warned people not to allow gay doctors to treat their children. And she opposes anti-bullying laws because she believes they create indoctrination camps. Now,Linda Harvey of Mission America is doubling down on that opposition and claims that sexual abuse causes homosexuality.
In a column on WorldNetDaily, Harvey writes that “anti-bullying laws are a carte blanche for sexual-deviance promotion.” She also goes on to claim that sexual abuse causes homosexuality and bases her claim on a “study” by Dale O’Leary of the anti-gay group NARTH. Here is a portion of the column which can be read in it’s entirety here.
All over the country, parents are discovering that “anti-bullying” programs are a carte blanche for sexual-deviance promotion. Kids learn that unless they nod approvingly at homosexuality and gender-bending, they are all complicit in the worst damage that can ever happen to a fellow student.
This is suicide prevention? How about if we tell them the truth, that homosexuality is unsafe, unnatural, and no one needs to go there emotionally or physically? There’s a well-traveled road out of homosexuality that our kids deserve to hear. It would be a lifesaver for many.
But adult homosexuals in American education are busy driving this exploitative agenda. The National Education Association’s “GLBT Caucus” has led the giant union into every imaginable supporting policy for same-sex “marriage” and “GLBT” expression among students and teachers. This past summer, the NEA representative assembly passed a measure calling for “hate language” to be eliminated from schools because of bullying issues. Given their far-left leanings, do we have any doubt about what this means?
Among recent tragic teen suicides, some were, or were thought to be, involved in homosexuality. But the picture is mostly murky, with activists making unsupported accusations while downplaying any role played by personal struggles, peer conflicts and/or family issues.
Research has shown that teens have a higher risk of self-harm after “coming out,” and effeminate boys have a particularly high risk. The right questions are seldom even asked. Researcher Dale O’Leary has written that, “When an adolescent self-identifies as gay or bisexual, health-care professionals should ask, ‘Was this child sexually abused?’” O’Leary notes that 61 percent of self-identified gay teens in one major study who attempted suicide had been sexually abused.”
Linda Harvey clearly has a problem she needs to seek help for. She is a hate merchant who seeks to destroy people who are different from herself. She has zero compassion for and zero understanding of the LGBT community and what they deal with on a daily basis. People like Harvey should be the ones hiding who they really are. Her hatred, ignorance, and paranoia poisons the world and she should be ashamed to call herself a human being. I wonder what her childhood was like. It’s obvious she has some unresolved issues. Anyone who can hate like that clearly needs therapy and anger management classes.
