Christian conservative Linda Harvey argues that God has endowed people to be repulsed by gay sex.

Harvey, the founder of the Columbus, Ohio-based Mission America and a frequent contributor to the conservative website, said during an interview with Sandy Rios of the American Family Association (AFA) to promote her book Maybe He's Not Gay that children are being taught to ignore their God-given instinct against homosexuality.

“What's happening to children is the whole reason I got into this issue to begin with, because they are being manipulated at very impressionable ages,” Harvey said on Rio's radio program. “They are being told … you need to not find this stuff repulsive.”

“You need to find these sex acts, once you find out about them at way too early an age, you need to not find them repulsive,” she continued. “The yuck factor is being taken way from our kids and that is a huge preventative issue and a common sense issue on homosexuality where people know, 'Wait I would never do that.' Yeah, that's a basic instinct that God has given you and it's the right one.”

Harvey added that gay rights will “overturn male-female dating patterns, everything, every cultural norm that children are being taught. So we really need to stand up against this.”

Harvey's book argues against groups such as GLSEN, which work to create a safe space in schools for children who are or may be perceived to be gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender. The aim of such groups is to lower anti-gay bias in an effort to reduce bullying and prevent troubled young teens from committing suicide.
