Linda Harvey believes gay men and
lesbians are not protected by the Fourteenth Amendment because they
do not qualify as people.
Harvey, the founder of the Columbus,
Ohio-based Mission America and a frequent contributor to the
conservative website WorldNetDaily.com, attempted to explain why the
U.S. Supreme Court would uphold bans against gay marriage.
“Why should the equal protection
argument be made in favor of homosexual behavior, which is
rhetorically asked on her radio show. “People are not
naturally homosexual, so the definition of 'person' in the Fourteenth
Amendment is being twisted to make this assumption.”
“'Person' should be understood based
on historic, beneficial, or at least neutral and fact-based traits.
It should not be twisted to incorporate behavior that most religions
and most cultures have said a firm 'no' to.”
“It's also behavior for which there's
no recognized science demonstrating a genetic or hormonal origin.
And it's also not beneficial and does not stand the definition of
marriage, used for millenia – that is, the act of consummation.
It's another sad fact of homosexual behavior that two men or two
women can never consummate a marriage; they can never conceive
“This should still have some standing
and it remains a fact that there are only two types of humans in the
world: male and female. Any other distinctions made are appearance,
custom, and construction. So marriage is the lawful, orderly
confirmation of what we already see in nature.”
“The Supreme Court says they will
give their decision in June. Pray, friends, for truth to prevail.”
