Christian conservative Linda Harvey has accused LGBT rights groups and “vicious homosexual bloggers” of bullying Christian students.

Harvey, the founder of the Columbus, Ohio-based Mission America and a frequent contributor to the conservative website, lamented in a BarbWire op-ed the school adoption of bullying prevention programs from the “gay-stapo.”

“Activists both inside and outside America’s schools are pushing kids toward homosexuality and gender change while demonizing conservative values that would steer them elsewhere,” Harvey wrote. “The teacher’s unions are on board, and the gay-stapo hopes no concerned parent or astute student recognizes that hand grenades are being thrown into the school environment. Critics of current religious freedom bills might want to take a look at the behavior of activists at the schoolhouse before they dismiss those measures as 'unnecessary.'”

“Using disruptive, anti-child advocacy, the Human Rights Campaign (promoters of the grade school gender confusion program, 'Welcoming Schools') and GLSEN (sponsor of the victim-posturing 'Day of Silence,' held in April in public schools) are busy corrupting children with misinformation and hyperbole about bullying, all laced with explicit 'gay' sexual messages.”

“The real tragedy is that these groups in reality exploit vulnerable and fragile kids, all the while espousing great compassion and, disingenuously, 'tolerance' as a motive. And let’s just be frank: there’s one type of bully in the current climate almost never held accountable: the verbally combative homosexual, lesbian or cross-dresser who taunts and insults others. In the adult world, this is personified by vicious homosexual bloggers who spread lies, distortions, and have called me and others vulgarities I’d never attribute to my worst enemy, but to them, it’s their daily bread. How these people have gotten any traction is beyond unbelievable. They’d never last two weeks in the corporate environment.”

“Then there are students who fall into this category. I know of several situations where life was made a living hell for peers by troubled 'gay' adolescents whose destructive actions went unpunished.”

“But if anyone thinks these desperately discontented people will stop their assault at Christians, think again. First, they came for the Christians and the children…,” Harvey concluded.
