The gay rights group Truth Wins Out is taking on social conservative Linda Harvey and her implied threat of a lawsuit.

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.

Truth Wins Out executive director and founder Wayne Besen labeled Harvey “the most homophobic woman in America” in an op-ed published last week.

“Harvey is making a name for herself by fast becoming the most homophobic woman in the nation,” Besen wrote in a blog post after noting the radio host was competing in a crowded field.

“She is outright paranoid of an imagined gay menace that in her diseased mind is lurking to corrupt children on every street corner.”

As proof, Besen went on to quote Harvey warning parents to steer their children away from gay doctors and nurses, opposing gay teachers and suggesting that the government should take steps to control the gay community.

President Barack Obama “has launched a broad scale attack on traditional values,” Harvey said. “If homosexuals and transgenders are allowed to live and love as they see fit, we would have a whole societal mess on our hands, which is already starting to happen in some areas.”

Besen also noted that Harvey supported a bill being considered by Uganda lawmakers which would increase the penalties against gay men and lesbians, including, under some circumstances, the death penalty.

“If one wants to witness evil and darkness, look no further than the ignorant mind, cruel heart and empty soul of Linda Harvey,” Besen wrote.

In a Twitter message, Harvey replied to Besen's missive with an implied threat of a lawsuit.

“Need to woman-up for Besen's truth-free abuse,” she messaged. “Never advocated killing anyone. He needs prayer and maybe a lawsuit?”

“Bring it on,” Besen responded. “We hope that such a case would be aired on television so we can expose Harvey's vile words in a court of law and in the court of public opinion. It's bizarre that Harvey is upset that we quoted her verbatim, which tells me that on some level she is ashamed of her own hateful rhetoric.”
