Anti-gay rights activist Linda Harvey says she removed her latest book Maybe He's Not Gay: Another View on Homosexuality from Amazon.

Harvey told The Christian Post that she was responding to a “smear campaign.”

“I saw the rotten reviews, a smear campaign by those who had not read the book, and the publisher attempted to get Amazon to pull the ad hominem reviews, but they were not immediately responsive,” Harvey said.

“So, since the book is brand new and I didn't want it to be harmed by this uninformed and vicious campaign stimulated by 'gay' bloggers, I decided to pull the page for now.”

“We have the option to re-post it, but hopefully by that time, the book will have been read by others who will be honest and sincere, and at any rate, fair in providing reviews,” Harvey added.

Several sites criticized Amazon for carrying the book. Back2Stonewall said it was “beyond disgusting” that Amazon would sell a “potentially dangerous book aimed at parents and LGBT youth and teens.”

Harvey, the founder of the Columbus, Ohio-based Mission America and a frequent contributor to the conservative website, is a vocal opponent of gay rights.

She has in the past declared President Barack Obama the “most racist president in U.S. history” for endorsing gay rights, labeled school anti-bullying programs as “selling gay behavior,” and said that a healthy society would discriminate against gays.

Still, she insisted that Maybe He's Not Gay is not hateful.

“This book reflects concerns for all students, concerns about the damage homosexual behavior and activism is doing in young people's lives and to our country,” Harvey said. “Anyone who reads the book with an open mind and a fair appraisal will not think it's hateful, but exactly the opposite.”
