Christian conservative Linda Harvey has blamed “stubborn” LGBT teens for their parents' rejection.

Harvey, the founder of the Columbus, Ohio-based Mission America and a frequent contributor to the conservative website, told her radio listeners that gay teens living on the streets have only themselves to blame.

“'Kids are kicked out of their homes just for being who they are,' is how the saying goes,” Harvey said. “Well, let me offer another possibility that I've heard far too often. A parent learns that a son or daughter is claiming to be gay but an underage child still lives at home. So the now-heartbroken parent puts new restrictions on some of the activities. Like for instance, the teen is no longer going to be having sleepovers with that same-sex friend, or if the friend is a college student or has an apartment, visits over there will not be permitted.”

“What does the teen do? It may become a fight where the teen storms out by choice and leaves voluntarily because the homosexual relationship is more important than that of his or her parents. And when that all-important relationship ends, the teen is too stubborn or already too-involved in alcohol or drugs or the premature independence of the homosexual life [that] he or she would rather drift than return home.”

“It's not always the case, of course, but personal decisions are at the heart of these issues,” she added.
