Linda Harvey wants you to pray for gay persecution law in Russia

Linda Harvey
Forget any nonsense folks like to spin about gays attempting to harm "Christians." It's this type of junk which does Christians real harm. Linda Harvey has no idea what she is talking about. She is a former advertising executive who supposedly "found Christ." Based upon her backing of this awful law, Harvey needs to check herself in terms of what she supposedly found. It definitely was NOT the Jesus many of us know. What's even more insulting is the flippant way she addresses the violence directed towards Russian lgbts because of this law.

From Right Wing Watch:

Mission America’s Linda Harvey used her radio commentary today to sing the praises of the Russian government’s growing crackdown on the LGBT community, calling on listeners to pray for the law which bans pro-gay rights speech. Harvey, who has joined other Religious Right activists in endorsing the law, said that any “responsible adult” would back Russia’s criminalization of gay “propaganda.”

But apparently WE are the bad guys. OKAY.
