Religious right member wants to give children false information on gay community

Linda Harvey
Linda Harvey, the former ad executive who supposedly "found Jesus," the woman who believes that gays don't exist but nonetheless has warned against taking children to gay physicians, has created an easy Q and A guide designed to traumatize . . . I mean "educate" children about the gay community:

Have you wished you could find a simple flyer for your older grade school or middle school children about homosexuality?

Well, Mission America has developed one.It's clear, concise and provides a beginning basis for a more in-depth study later on.

You can read and download it below. Feel free to print this as needed and give to your children, grandchildren, or your church group.

Questions and Answers for Kids about Homosexuality

If you wish, click on the above link to read it. However to say yourself some retching, I will highlight the more interesting parts. Harvey's Q and A makes the following statements:

So… does that mean that being “gay” is right?

Well, the simple answer is, no.

Long ago, people all over the world saw that when grown-ups love each other, it’s almost always a man and a woman. And that’s how children are born, through a mom and a dad loving each other. They hold hands, kiss and all that.

But once in a while, a man wants to date and love another man, or a woman wants to date and love a woman.

Most cultures long ago decided this was very wrong. And they made rules against it, for a lot of good reasons (more grown-up stuff). First of all, two men can never create their own child. Neither can two women. And two men kissing-- well, it just doesn’t seem right. That’s because it isn’t!

When God made the world, in the beginning, He created just two types of humans: a man and a woman. He told them to join together and become husband and wife (Genesis 2:18-25).

After some time passed, sin came into the world, and people started doing things they shouldn’t. Some of those things involved having homosexual feelings.

. . . When Jesus came, He repeated what God said about marriage –that it should only be one man and one woman (Matthew 19:4-6). And we should not forget that Jesus was really God on earth, so He should know!

So would God be in favor of two men getting married, or two women? Absolutely not!

Some people claim they were “born” homosexual. But there is no well-accepted science that backs up that idea. Strong feelings are not proof of anything.

And, a lot of people who don’t even believe in God agree. From Asia to India to Africa to Latin America, most people now and throughout history agree that being homosexual or “gay” is wrong.

So if you hear that everyone thinks being “gay” is okay, don’t believe it—even if that person is a grown-up, or even if he leads a church. There are many, many people who still follow God’s teachings, still believe their common sense, and believe that romance, dating and marriage are for a boy and girl, a man and woman.

And then comes my favorite part - bullying:

But what about bullying? When one kid picks on another, that’s always wrong.
If the bully uses bad words or makes up false stories that someone is “gay,” or calls a boy names like “sissy,” or worse, that’s horrible!

Always speak up and help someone who is being bullied.

BUT… it’s not right to tell someone that being homosexual is okay. The person may be feeling sad because of being bullied, but never try to make him or feel better by saying “gay” is okay.

Who needs science when you have Linda Harvey? Harvey is obviously seriously clueless when it comes to middle school children. And I am betting that the majority of them would laugh themselves silly after reading her tripe.

"Strong feelings are not proof of anything."

Disgust, like beauty, is different for everyone. So if you see find two people of the same-sex, or opposite genders, kissing disgusting, it's not because it's “wrong,” it's just not how you roll. In fact, if I'd if you find such aversions disgusting, I'd call it a side effect of your orientation.

I dunno whether to find her using such a childish argument hilarious, or sad. Especially after she said, “Strong feelings are not proof of anything”. So strong feelings towards someone of the same sex isn't proof you're gay, but having strong feelings against homosexuality is proof enough it's wrong?

I assume then that the kiss of peace wasn't Christian?
