Anti-gay activist Peter LaBarbera and Christian conservative Linda Harvey over the weekend agreed that discriminating against gays was a sign of a healthy society.

Harvey, the founder of the Columbus, Ohio-based Mission America and a frequent contributor to the conservative website, was troubled that the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN), which works to create a safe space in schools for children who are or may be perceived to be LGBT, had launched its Transgender Student Rights initiative.

LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, suggested that groups such as GLSEN are attempting to make kids gay and transgender, which he connected to HIV.

“Why in the world are we doing this to kids?” Harvey rhetorically asked. “You know, a self-destructive society would do those kinds of things, wouldn't they? And look at us.”

“Yes,” LaBarbera answered. “A healthy society discriminates against perverse and dangerous and unhealthy behaviors such as homosexuality, bisexuality and transgenderism. That's what a healthy society does.”
