Linda Harvey calls ‘It Gets Better Project’ evil, Dan Savage ‘vicious and vulgar’

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

Linda Harvey, founder of Columbus, Ohio-based Mission America — whose sole purpose is to denounce homosexuals — has called the “It Gets Better Project” “wrong,” “evil” and “dark,” and it’s creator Dan Savage “a radical and vicious, vicious, vulgar, profane, anti-Christian.”

This It Gets Better campaign is a video campaign that a lot of the leftist politicians including our president have jumped on board, so have some celebrities.

It’s supposed to encourage kids, that’s great. Encourage kids, say, you know if you’re having trouble, you’re getting bullied, you feel despaired, don’t give up.

That would be a worthy goal if they stop there. But no they tag on to it approval of homosexuality and the implication that anybody who objects is just like those bullies out there and they’re leading you or others into suicide.

That’s just wrong, it’s evil, it’s dark, this Dan Savage has already come out attacking my friend Peter [LaBarbera].

Harvey, who spreads her hate via her radio show on WRFD in Columbus, and also writes commentary for WorldNetDaily, spends much of her time hobnobbing with other haters, including the American Family Association and the Family Research Council — and her friend LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth, another leading anti-LGBT hate group.

Her sleazy little website is chock full of attacks against every conceivable effort to promote the safety of LGBT youth.

  12. The only way to deal with bigots is to call them out on their stupidity. They are fear mongers and are dangerous because of all their misinformation. One can not ignore them and hope they go away.

  13. Once again, more Christians who are doing the work of their Devil and calling it the work of their God. I pity their souls.

  15. Hmm… what a skewed view of reality. I’d love to examine her psychologically.

  16. He has not said a single thing that is vicious. Radical is subjective, but he isn’t vicious. He’s always been a rational, gentle voice of reason. Kiss my ass, Linderp.

  17. Dumb bitch

  18. Personally, I often wonder if the vehemence with which such people persecute the LGBT community correlates to the amount of sexual fantasies they have about people of the same sex. ;) May not be true all the time, but I have a gut feeling a big percentage are guilty of their own sexuality, in a big way.

  19. she needs to see a therapist and find out why she is so miserable…. “everything you see is a reflection of yourself “

  20. How sad that her nose is all out of joint because her right to “object” (and note how she uses such an innocuous word, yet pours invective on Mr. Savage) to homosexuality is finally being seen as the soul-destroying bigotry that it is. Here’s a newsflash: continually conveying the notion that homosexuality is “an abomination” (to quote her holy book), inherently degenerate and morally evil actually can and does cause queer youth to despair so profoundly that it will lead to their suicides. Her astonishing lack of compassion nauseates me.

  21. It is a sad & pathetic to see people who can find no other reason for their existence but to hate others.

  29. How can encouraging kids to LIVE be considered “dark” and “evil”?

    Posted on Tuesday, June 21, 2011 at 7:39pm
  30. Dan Savage radical? Lord help her – with that confused premise, surely she won’t get far!

    Where’s Queer Nation when you need them to sit in on Ms. Harvey’s Mission America meetings?!

  31. Ms. Harvey, this is not a nation of priests, nuns or virgins. This is not a nation that was built on anyone’s religion. This is secular nation, governed by secular laws, based on a secular Constitution. The Founding Fathers were very clear about that last fact. SECULAR.

    You’ve appointed yourself the spokesperson for your very own version of hatred. I find it interesting that you’ve very publicly announce your hatred of an entire swath of humanity, based solely on your own personal prejudice. I recommend medication and a psychiatrist’s couch to determine why you have such strong demons.

  32. As a teacher who is gay and been in a relationship with two children that are not gay and married in ma you are one dumb person…get a life

  33. When unbiased individuals read the comments that follow this story, they would likely conclude that those supporting this project are in fact vulgar and disrespectful people who when lacking anything substantive to say, resort to name calling and demonizing. If you stick to factual information, instead of childishly attacking the person’s appearance and name-calling, you might earn some credibility.

    And to Patrick who posted August 10, 2011, if you are gay and in a relationship with two children, whether you married them or not, you should not post it on the internet because it makes the rest of us teachers look like pedophiles too.
