Linda Harvey of Mission America is urging voters to oppose the Safe Schools Improvement Act and the Student Nondiscrimination Act, warning that such anti-bullying legislation is “using bullying prevention as a tool to force approval of homosexuality and gender bending on children, teachers and families.”

On her radio show on Thursday, Harvey urged members of her Ohio-based group to contact Senators Sherrod Brown and Rob Portman to oppose what she called the “promotion of these lifestyle’s to kids brought into schools in the Trojan Horse of anti-bullying programs.”

She went on to say that schools will be turned “into indoctrination camps” in order “to fulfill the fondest wishes of those who want traditional morality to disappear” if the safe school legislation passes.

Harvey’s remedy for bullied LGBT youth is to make sure that “every child” learns about the “very well-traveled path out of homosexuality.”

Far from the only Religious Right activist to staunchly oppose anti-bullying efforts, Harvey has previously warned that such policies are “destructive” and that gays are their own bullies.

“Special rights for homosexual behavior are not needed. This makes me very sad for every child in our schools who will be subjected to this deception,” Harvey said.
