|Linda Harvey - a mean and bitter woman|
A number of years ago I had an e-mail duel with hate group leader Linda Harvey in which she basically admitted that her education credentials contained nothing that qualified her as an expert on psychology, mental health or sexual orientation. However, like most of the faux experts of the far right, Harvey has never let a lack of any legitimate credentials get in her way of pretending to be an expert and making a buck on the anti-gay speaking circuit. In those circles, extreme religious belief is all one needs and often the more extreme one is the more the adulation from the ignorance embracing masses of the "godly folk." With gays making significant gains in social acceptance and legal rights, Harvey is literally boiling over with anti-gay animus. Now she is arguing in a piece at World Net Daily, a/k/a Wing Nut Daily, that the Christofascists haven't been mean enough in the jihad against gays. Here are highlights from her batshitery:
Why are conservatives back-peddling on slam-dunk issues like freedom of religion? Because we are being challenged on a core question we refuse to directly address. And here it is: What about homosexual behavior? Good, evil, or neutral?The answer is that homosexuality is always wrong. Objective reasoning shows us that skin color is unchangeable and that racial discrimination is unjust. We can in the same way objectively reason that same-sex “marriage” is indefensible because homosexual conduct itself is disordered for human beings.We aren’t fighting to protect marriage because the term and tradition are important. Let’s be honest that the only reason for this dispute is because people want to engage in anatomically challenged behavior that is observably unnatural, medically risky, improper as an example for children, and changeable.And it’s a behavior God calls sin. There is no other biblical description of homosexuality except always and only a big taboo.So in view of marriage law or public accommodations, could the immorality of homosexuality be a rationale for refusing to honor same-sex nuptials? Absolutely, it should be. It’s time to pull the curtain on this wizard, folks. Homosexuality itself is wrong.The constructed identity of being “gay” is harmful and should not be considered a worthy defense in light of reality. The evidence clearly points to the truth that everyone is intrinsically a heterosexual.
We need to have the guts to stand up and say so. Our defense should not be because we Christians just hope to somehow preserve narrow rights over here in our holy huddle.It’s because homosexuality is unnatural and unnecessary, and the harm its advocacy is doing to our culture is apparent to anyone with half a brain, even atheists. Confusion abounds only because we won’t state the obvious. And this doesn’t even begin to cover the lunacy of “transgendered” behavior.
Just as we understand race to be a neutral, unchanging characteristic, rational thought arrives at the conclusion that homosexuality is neither. This recognition just confirms facts and is not hateful but helpful to others. Pull back this curtain. Expose the truth, because it’s a positive one.
What's obvious in my view is that if there's any lunacy going on, it is in Harvey's mind. It is also to be noted that the U. S. Supreme Court has said in Lawrence v. Texas and Windsor that religious based disapproval of gays is not sufficient to make unconstitutional laws somehow magically become constitutional. Harvey has done a great job underscoring that anti-gay animus is at the core of the Christofascists' anti-gay agenda. The woman is, in my view and idiot and mentally ill.Why are conservatives back-peddling on slam-dunk issues like freedom of religion? Because we are being challenged on a core question we refuse to directly address.
