Anti-gay hate group leader launches false attack on homeless lgbt youth

Linda Harvey
Anti-gay hate group leader Linda Harvey (Mission America) made these comments last week. However in light of the upcoming GLSEN's Day of Silence which highlights the problems faced by lgbt youth, they deserve more attention.

They underscore the deliberate obliviousness of the anti-gay industry when it comes to our lgbt children and also why I personally wouldn't allow Harvey around any children, much less lgbt children:


 ‘Kids are kicked out of their homes just for being who they are,’ is how the saying goes, well let me offer another possibility that I’ve heard far too often: a parent learns that a son or daughter is claiming to be gay but an underage child still lives at home, so the now-heartbroken parent puts new restrictions on some of the activities like for instance, the teen is no longer going to be having sleepovers with that same-sex friend, or if the friend is a college student or has an apartment, visits over there will not be permitted. What does the teen do? It may become a fight where the teen storms out by choice and leaves voluntarily because the homosexual relationship is more important than that of his or her parents. And when that all-important relationship ends, the teen is too stubborn or already too-involved in alcohol or drugs or the premature independence of the homosexual life and he or she would rather drift than return home. It’s not always the case of course but personal decisions are at the heart of these issues.

SC senator doubles down on homophobia, adds a little Obama bashing

Lee Bright
SC State Sen (and Lindsey Graham's primary opponent for US Senate) Lee Bright isn't backing away from the crazy which has caused him to be embroiled in a war over state colleges and universities over lgbt issues.

He seems to be embracing it, with a little Obama bashing on the side. According to Right Wing Watch:

Speaking on Washington Watch with Josh Duggar, the TLC reality TV star who also serves as executive director of the Family Research Council’s campaign arm, Bright said GOP leaders like Speaker John Boehner should have the “courage” of al-Assad and Russian president Vladimir Putin. He also promised to fight to “take back” the “educational establishment” from the “homosexual agenda” before it “indoctrinates” the “next generation.” 


 Republicans need to learn to start playing offense and quit playing so much defense. You look at, of course I hate to use examples, you look at Assad and you look at Putin, when people stand up to Obama, you see that he backs up and his lines in the sand become erased. If [Speaker] Boehner had the courage that Putin and Assad had, we’d be living in a different America, but we don’t have the leadership and we’ve got to continue to try to get folks to Washington that are going to take the fight to the liberal agenda. One thing I didn’t mention earlier, you were talking about things going around the state, we’ve got the homosexual agenda on the full march in our institutions of higher ed and we’ve gone from education to indoctrination, so we are in a fight — they have seized the educational establishment and we’ve got to take that back and we’ve got to get folks involved in that or otherwise that’s our next generation.

I never thought that there would be a candidate for Senate who would make me actually root for Lindsey Graham.
