Linda Harvey: Ban Gay Pride Parades

As I’ve noted before, even by Christian right standards Linda Harvey is a serious and virulent anti-gay bigot, up there with Scott Lively and others. In an interview with Jan Markell’s Understanding the Times radio show, she said that the government should ban gay pride parades because men wear lipstick and feather boas.

“We need to go to our city councils and stop these parades. I think they are a blight on the community, they communicate exactly the wrong message: that homosexuality and gender change is totally fine, that it’s a big joke, because there are men dressed in feather boas, lipstick and heels in these parades, this is such a raw message to our children especially. My opinion is gay pride parades ought to be banned and we have every reason to do so, there is no redeeming social value, that’s my belief.”

First Amendment? Pffft. That’s for Christians only! Linda Harvey gets to decide what is and is not acceptable and gay people will get nothing and like it!

Oh, and of course gay rights means we’re heading toward the end times or the end of America — or both.

    So, Linda Harvey still hasn’t fallen into an active volcano…man, prayer really doesn’t work.

  • dingojack

    So Linda, gender-changing (particularly sex changes for men) so EVUULLL, right?

    WWJD?

    Matthew 19:12

    For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother’s womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it”.

    Hmmmm… looks like you’re gonna have to talk with Jesus.

    @ OP

    I think they are a blight on the community

    Nope you are the blight on the community!

    they communicate exactly the wrong message: that homosexuality and gender change is totally fine

    Actually it is…next ?

    that it’s a big joke

    Linda you are the big joke…and the cretins that pompously nod in agreement with you, bigotry is not a joke though, and neither are you really…just very sad!

    there are men dressed in feather boas, lipstick and heels in these parades

    And in other parades men walk in combat fatigues, baseball caps, guns, rifles, and other toys that can kill from a distance and brag about stopping power, reload time, calibre and their latest Humvee acquisition.

    this is such a raw message to our children especially.

    Yes it certainly seems so in the case of self styled militia’s based on paranoia and pure blended mountain dew!

    My opinion is gay pride parades ought to be banned

    your opinion is worthless in the scheme of things!

    and we have every reason to do so

    Your ‘reasons have been rejected by your own courts of law up and down your country many many times…and fairly recently…they tend to disregard your ‘reasons’ as not much of a reason at all!

    there is no redeeming social value, that’s my belief.

    Your belief is your belief…it means diddly squat…live with it!

  • naturalcynic

    Now if they exchanged he feather boas and heels for motorcycle boots and leather chaps and vests, that would be totally cool. Right ?!?!?!!!

    bushrat,

    “So, Linda Harvey still hasn’t fallen into an active volcano…man, prayer really doesn’t work.”

    Can we send her on an all-inclusive vacation to Iceland, including camping in the highlands?

    Note: The aforementioned highlands have just been evacuated due to a possible impending volcanic eruption.

    I thought “end times” was a good thing. sky god comes back takes all the believers. That sort of thing.

  • John Pieret

    My opinion is gay pride parades ought to be banned and we have every reason to do so, there is no redeeming social value

    Imagine if we banned every silly or fun thing people do wearing funny clothes that has no “redeeming social value”! There goes golf, school bands, Mardi Gras, school pageants, Christmas pageants, Catholic masses, wild west reenactments, Renaissance fairs … if I had a week I might come up with 1% of them.

  • hunter

    Strange — in Chicago, people bring their kids to the Pride parade and everyone has a good time.

  • wildbill

    Does this mean she’ll go ban old Milton Berle and Flip Wilson reruns also?

  • peterh

    Has she vetted all the characters/costumes in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade? Mardi Gras festivals/parades? Although Mummers are primarily UK, we have a few and she should beware of and work toward banishing them. It goes without saying Mrs. Doubtfire and Tootsie should be jailed for life.

    there is no redeeming social value, that’s my belief

    She has obviously never been to one. They are fun, fun, fun with a capital F.

  • jnorris

    Why is it the Evangelical American Taliban uses the End Times as a scary thing? So what if gay pride parades bring on the End Times. Aren’t the End Times exactly what these Christians want, what with Jesus knocking on their doors and taking them home?
