Social conservative Linda Harvey is advocating for the closure of gay bars to stem the spread of HIV/AIDS, media watchdog group reported.

Harvey is the founder of the Columbus, Ohio-based Mission America and is a frequent contributor to the conservative website, which is run by Joseph Farah.

During her Monday radio show, Harvey explained that closing bathhouses and gay bars would help reduce new HIV infections.

“So what could we do to make a serious dent in HIV and syphilis disease track?” Harvey rhetorically asked. “One obvious approach is to stop promoting homosexual behavior to kids and falsely calling it an identity like race. We could also close down homosexual bars and bathhouses, that would be a start.”

“God never created people to engage in these unnatural acts,” she added. (The audio is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

The suggestion here is that God is punishing gay people who engage in sex, particularly gay men, historically a high-risk group.
