Linda Harvey has suggested that gay rights costs jobs and lives.

Harvey, the founder of the Columbus, Ohio-based Mission America and a frequent contributor to the conservative website, on Wednesday lauded the conclusion by the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), the nation's most vociferous opponent of gay marriage, that companies which back marriage equality do so at the cost of declining profits.

“The National Organization for Marriage just released a very interesting report about the companies that support homosexuality as marriage; they are paying a price, literally, and of course, when a company doesn't do well that means jobs in America are lost,” she told her radio listeners. “Here are the specifics: the marriage group quoted an article in Forbes which tried to soften the reality of their findings but the truth is companies that support same-sex marriage lose positive brand perception among both Democrats and Republicans. This reputation-loss is more pronounced among Republicans but the consumer distaste goes across party lines. The brands that were studied included, American Apparel, Apple, General Mills Brands, Google, Home Depot, JC Penney, Levi’s, Macy’s, Microsoft, Nabisco, Nike and Starbucks. I don't know about you but in our house of those mentioned above we no longer patronize Macy's, Home Depot or JC Penney, we no longer order from Amazon and we no longer buy any General Mills cereals. Some of these companies may be seeing a downturn in sales, when that continues it can lead to layoffs and lost jobs.”

“This, friends, is the rotten fruit of ungodly values. Obama's open support for homosexuality as marriage is very unpopular once the truth is known; the same is true of his new contraceptive mandate. Again, as this election campaign unfolds I am reminded of the Scripture verse that has been on our homepage at Mission America since 1995, it's Hosea 4:6, my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Suppressing the truth will be our undoing on so many levels, friends, but the good news is that many Americans are not so easily fooled.”

“These radical values cost not just jobs, but lives,” she added.
