Linda Harvey, whose bigotry against gay people reaches levels of derangement that even most other Christian right bigots can’t match, says that it’s impossible to co-exist with gay people because they hate Christianity and are on the verge of persecuting Christians.
On her radio program last weekend, Harvey asserted that there can be “no coexistence [with] this evil” and so conservative Christians “need to make sure we’re standing up against this everywhere we can.”
“Do not believe the lie of diversity and coexistence,” she said. “We’ve seen how they’ve behaved. There is no coexistence. These people hate the body of Christ, authentic Christian witness, and they cannot abide us.”“Each of these folks has a role to play in propaganda and revolution and actual, on-the-ground hate and, eventually, much more overt persecution, and I believe that’s coming,” Harvey warned. “When you see the hate with [which] these people responded to the beauty of the goodness of the true gospel of Jesus Christ regarding marriage and sexuality and male/female—the marvelous design of God—when you see the hate with which this was received, you know that Satan is alive and well in these hearts.”
Well sure, it has to be Satan. Everything they don’t like is conveniently blamed on Satan. But if you want persecution, that’s what Christians have been doing to gay people for centuries, eons even. As always, this is a classic case of psychological projection. They have persecuted others, so they always think they’re the victims of persecution.
