Christian conservative Linda Harvey has rejected the advice of young voters calling on the Republican Party to soften its anti-gay rhetoric.

Harvey, the founder of the Columbus, Ohio-based Mission America and a frequent contributor to the conservative website, said on her radio program that “these young voters don't know what they're talking about.”

Harvey was referring to a report compiled by the College Republican National Committee (CRNC) which notes that “there is hardly an appetite from this generation to see the GOP crusade against same-sex marriage.”

The CRNC stopped well short of recommending that candidates endorse marriage equality; instead it advised the party “promote the diversity of opinion on the issue within its ranks.”

Harvey responded to the report's acknowledgment that the anti-gay stances of the GOP were alienating young voters by accusing the young Republicans of “ignoring all the evidence” about the supposed harms of homosexuality.

“This report recommends that the GOP ignore truth and mold itself to the current perceived needs and misinformation of a certain segment of younger voters,” Harvey said. “These researchers are foolish enough to believe the GOP can appear to be divided and that will win votes. And also ignoring all the evidence that there's nothing wrong with homosexual behavior so candidates should never stand up to the militant gay lobby. Even on religious principle. Even if these behaviors are being packaged and sold to vulnerable children without their parent's consent. Even if these behaviors will never be marriage in reality, no matter how many people in surveys believe otherwise.”
