Christian conservative Linda Harvey claims Gay Pride parades are a bad influence on young people and should be banned.

Harvey, the founder of the Columbus, Ohio-based Mission America and a frequent contributor to the conservative website, made her remarks over the weekend.

“We need to go to our city councils and stop these parades,” she said during an appearance on Understanding the Times with Jan Markell.

“I think they are a blight on the community, they communicate exactly the wrong message: that homosexuality and gender change is totally fine. That it's a big joke, because there are men dressed in feather boas, lipstick and heels in these parades, this is such a raw message to our children especially. My opinion is gay pride parades ought to be banned and we have every reason to do so, there is no redeeming social value, that’s my belief,” she said.

Harvey also warned that LGBT rights are pushing the world into the biblical End Times “or the end of America – or both.”
