Christian conservative Linda Harvey on Wednesday told her radio listeners to pray for Russia's anti-gay law.

Russia's “gay propaganda” law seeks to silence gay rights activists by prohibiting positive portrayals of gay rights in a setting where minors might be present, effectively outlawing Gay Pride marches and similar demonstrations. Its passage has provoked worldwide outrage and calls for a boycott of the upcoming Winter Olympics to be held in Sochi.

Harvey, the founder of the Columbus, Ohio-based Mission America and a frequent contributor to the conservative website, has endorsed the law, saying on Wednesday that any “responsible adult” would back it.

“Now I would never give a stamp of approval on all that might be going on in Russia but this is one area where it seems I agree with them,” Harvey told her listeners. “They have apparently observed the harm being done to kids in the West as a result of homosexual exploitation and are pursuing a much wiser course before global gay activism gets a foothold there. If there is room in our prayers for the people of Russia, friends, and I'm sure there is, let's pray that children there continue to be allowed protection in this way and in every other way God would want as well.”
