Linda Harvey: Teacher’s union gives ‘financial incentives’ for students to be gay

Monday, July 11, 2011

Linda Harvey, founder of Columbus, Ohio-based anti-gay Mission America, has now targeted a National Education Association affiliate for providing college scholarships for LGBT high school students.

Linda Harvey

Harvey, who in April claimed that “demonic manipulation” was making kids gay as she railed against the National Day of Silence, took to the airwaves to imply that an NEA affiliate teachers union was offering “financial incentives” for students “to be actively engaged in both the political goals of homosexuals as well as the risky behavior.”

Harvey combined anti-gay rhetoric with her stringent opposition to the rights of workers and organized labor:

The group’s website says they raise money for teen scholarships given to those kids who consider themselves homosexual.

The past few years the scholarship winners have not simply been young people persuaded to be in this deviant lifestyle, but are students who have unfortunately bought the party line and become involved in activism projects like homosexual clubs and the pro-homosexual Day of Silence in their schools.

And so now kids are given financial incentives to be actively engaged in both the political goals of homosexuals as well as the risky behavior.

This is appalling. In these tough economic times many kids will be struggling to get money together for college and here we have a really sleazy connection for them to make. It’s just one more outrageous thing going on with our teachers’ unions.

Harvey’s other recent gems include:

You can listen to Harvey spreading her hate daily, via her radio show on WRFD in Columbus.

  1. And not being discriminated against at every walk of life and having to face unfair practices in employment, housing, marriage rights, taxes, etc. is, therefore, an incentive to be straight. Right?

  2. I just don’t understand these people anymore. I think we need to just tell them that their own left arms are gay and wait until they gnaw them off in a fit of paranoid rage. Then we hospitalize them for having finally proven themselves incompetent and insane in a way no one can argue against.

  3. There is nothing polite that I can say about this woman or the trash she said, so I’m gonna take a moment of silence for her insanity. Damn shame.

  5. People who think that scholarships are to reel people into a “group”, are people who normally are jealous by the fact that they will never be able to get a scholarship of their own!

  19. I don’t think it’s fair to offer scholarships only for certain groups like this any more than it would be okay to give scholarships only to blacks or women or white, middle-class men. Equality is good, but reverse-discrimination is NOT the path we should take to get there.

  44. This woman is seriously deranged. There is no “incentive” there is a feeling of safety for the first time for gay youth to feel safe to come out and be themselves. I was raised in a household where folks were never judged on their race, creed, color, religion or sexual orientation just by their actions. More kids should be raised like that. There is just too much hate in this very messed up world and most of the hate is UNFOUNDED or based on a book WRITTEN BY MAN, NOT GOD and if your going to quote Leviticus then live fully by his teachings, you can’t just pick and choose what you want to believe. That means no more shaving, no tattoos, no mixing meats, stone your children if they get out of line or flirt with the opposite sex.. shall I go on?? Outdated info you say? Then so is the WRONGFULLY sited lines about One man shall not lay with another… it’s original meaning was a Christian Man (or Woman) shall not lay with a Jewish Man (or Woman). It was about religion not sexually orientation so that ‘so and so’ needs to do a little more research before condemning some of Gods children. I was born gay and quite frankly I wouldn’t have it any other way! Bitch can go to hell!
