Christian conservative Linda Harvey
last week denounced the Equality Act, a proposed bill that seeks
nationwide LGBT protections.
The White House backed the measure in
House backs LGBT protections bill.)
On her radio program, Harvey, president
of the Columbus-based Mission America, warned listeners that
endorsing such laws is “the least compassionate, the meanest and
most hateful thing you can do,” because it will lead to more people
thinking it is okay to be LGBT.
She called on her listeners to contact
their members of Congress and urge them to oppose the legislation.
When Harvey's guest, Cleveland Right To
Life's Molly Smith, noted that Christians should “love” gay
people even while being “completely, completely opposed to the
behavior of a homosexual,” Harvey agreed.
“They’ve been told that this is
said. “And we all feel compassion for these people, and some of
them are struggling. Some of them are not struggling, some of them
are very happy with where they’re at and then they want the whole
world to change around them and the desires they have adopted.”
“That can’t happen. We want truth.
We want truth to be maintained for those people who are struggling
and who want to escape it. We don’t want more children to be drawn
into this and so, on a public policy level, the least compassionate,
the meanest and most hateful thing you can do is to endorse things
that will accelerate and confirm this behavior in more and more
people in our country,” she added.
