Christian conservative Linda Harvey
last week decried military service members and Boy Scouts marching in
Gay Pride parades.
Harvey, the founder of the Columbus,
Ohio-based Mission America and a frequent contributor to the
conservative website WND.com, told her radio listeners that openly
gay troops and scouts are an “insult” to their peers.
“Is anyone who insists on open
homosexual behavior in our military the kind of soldier we need? I
don't think so,” Harvey
“And here's the basic issue: no one
needs to be doing this behavior in the first place. It’s an insult
to fellow soldiers. And in a Boy Scout situation, it’s an insult
to the boys. And yes, open that door and there will be a flood of
those interested in having sexual contact with young males. It’s
the reality that has existed since the beginning of human history,
some people insist on this sin and they insist on it with children.
It’s the really selfish adults or clueless ones who would expose
kids to danger like this.”
“Friends, if you have a son or
daughter in the Scouts, remove them as soon as possible. They’re
already hearing about this and learning misinformation. This
lifestyle is not how anyone is born and it is certainly not gay,”
