Linda Harvey dubs same-sex relationships ‘pathetic’ and ‘lifeless’

BRIAN TASHMAN | Right Wing Watch

Mission America’s Linda Harvey almost always dedicates her radio show to denouncing the gay community, and Saturday’s program was no different as she blasted gay parents as “pathetic” and selfish for not raising children with two parents of the opposite sex.

Linda Harvey

Later in the program, she insisted that gays and lesbians can have the freedom to marry if they would only join her “ex-homosexual” friends who have “grabbed onto that freedom to marry, at least in theory.”

Otherwise, Harvey laments that they will be stuck in “lifeless” relationships:

Yes people can love kids but a lot of times these — I would say the vast majority of the time — these homosexual-headed households as being featured in the JC Penney ads or the Gap billboard ads for Father’s Day, they are thinking about themselves much more than they are the kids.

If they thought about the kids they would know that this child would grow up with an ache and a hole in their heart for mom if it’s two dads heading the households; if it’s two moms, they will grow up with an ache and a hole in their heart, aching to know their father. It’s just pathetic when adults construct something that is so adult-centered and just neglects the purposes of the child and of marriage.

[...]

Friends, educate everyone you know out there with the truth: they have the freedom to marry. Every ex-homosexual I know has grabbed onto that freedom to marry, at least in theory, some of them are not married but many of them now are married to someone of the opposite sex because that is marriage.

A homosexual marriage can never be consummated, number one, the anatomy doesn’t work.

Big clue, people who love each other homosexually or believe they do, can never create under any scenario their own child together, there is no life in that relationship. In case we are being very dense and people are being very dense about this, we humans tend to be dense about things anyway but this is one more way, it’s a big clue: it is a lifeless relationship.

Also from Right Wing Watch:

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer predicted that the Boy Scouts would not end their anti-gay policy because doing so would “mean the end of the Boy Scouts” since parents would never allow their children to join unless they are positive that “homosexual pedophiles like this Jerry Sandusky” were being kept out of the organization.

And Jim Garlow compares those opposing marriage equality today to Revolutionary War pastors who fought the British because, just like them, these Religious Right activists are are willing declare “if necessary, here we die!” Read more

  14. She is just projecting her anger about her own pathetic and lifeless life and spirit on everybody else. How sad…

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 4:47pm
  15. she is a disgusting troll-person. and being a troll-person IS a choice. she says that gay relationships can’t be consummated? i beg to differ, darling. maybe she needs to do a lil consummating of her own.

  16. Attacking someone’s looks isn’t how you attack their ideas, folks.

  19. not “she”…*it*. clearly only non-human-beings can be this irrationally antigay. (let’s get those pronouns right!)

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 4:48pm
  20. her comments are pathetic and her marriage might be lifeless so she has to make gays suffer.

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 4:48pm
  21. So, based on her definition of a “lifeless” marriage, I’m assuming hetero couples who are not able to have children should not be allowed to marry either.

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 4:48pm
  22. The issue is social tolerance for differences. Equality does not mean same. Premise is flawed. (so is her psychology and sociology, but those are separate arguments) They also tried to equate pedophilia with homosexuality. Premise is flawed. Most pedophiles are married heterosexual males. Premise is everything and must be based on facts.

  23. Why is the press giving her any attention at all?

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 4:48pm

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 4:49pm

  32. Please crawl back under the rock you came from!

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 4:50pm
  33. Let’s be honest shall we? Is there ANYONE here who had a perfect childhood? ANYONE here who never had a problem with their family regardless of their parentage? The people who make gay parenting a problem aren’t the parents, it’s the people out there who inform this child that they are “suffering” and “lonely” and their parents are “pathetic”. They are the ones that make gay parenting a problem.

  34. Linda Harvey is a bitch

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 4:50pm
  35. thats her relationship

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 4:50pm
  36. I’m with Katie, she’s just projecting her feelings about her own relationship onto the gay community. Her husband is probably tired of her hateful ugly ass and she’s bitter. She needs to grow up. No one wants me but I don’t go around bashing heterosexual relationships because I’m lonely and upset.

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 4:51pm
  37. Linda Harvey is Pathetic, & Lifeless! Go to Hell!!

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 4:51pm
  38. this woman is as bad as the super religious people who try to compare us to things that have nothing to do with being gay or only look at the bad things they have heard without getting the facts

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 4:51pm
  39. just because you describe your relationship as pathetic and lifeless, doesn’t mean everyone’s is sweetheart :)

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 4:52pm
  40. closed minds should keep closed mouths

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 4:52pm
  41. Oh and far as that whole outdated “anatomy doesn’t work plug and socket argument” I have but one thing to say.

    Bitch buy an adapter.

  43. Disgusts me

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 4:54pm
  44. How dare she say that my same-sex relationship is pathetic and lifeless? Doesn’t she know that my same-sex relationship is causing a tornado somewhere in the bible-belt? I would say that’s formidable and bustling!

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 4:55pm
  45. I’d say “fuck you” but I wouldn’t touch that with my mortal enemy’s junk. Be safe to say that this pathetic human being was a waste of breath as are all the ignorant fucks out there. Ignore your enemies and smile as they pass by, it kills them inside because they know for a fact, they can never be as good as you. Stay fab all <3

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 4:55pm
  46. But she’s old.

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 4:56pm
  47. She must have been talking about herself. Love is not pathetic or lifeless…that woman is nothing but an ignorant bigot.

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 4:56pm
  48. Look what this woman had to say was indeed hateful and rather tasteless. But all of you who lash out in anger and hate are no better than her. Kill her? Saying she’s ugly? really? come on. We need to be better equipped than all of that asinine nonsense if we want to win this battle for our rights. Do we really want to present ourselves as brainless hate mongers who can’t come up with an intelligent rebuttal? I certainly do not. Just something to think about.

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 4:57pm
  49. She’s one angry woman isn’t she? What could she be so mad about I wonder?

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 5:00pm

  54. And I hereby dub thee old and cranky

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 5:03pm
  55. This woman is ignorant and evil, not a great combination. She actually makes Limbaugh look almost liberal.

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 5:06pm
  56. This Woman is literally lifeless, and has a stoney Heart.

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 5:08pm
  57. I think she has a mirror in front of her at all times that says “Same-sex relations” on it.

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 5:15pm
  58. And I dub her a faceless cunt. Who gives a fuck. Lol

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 5:17pm
  59. Fuck you linda, you pathetic excuse for a human being. You are human aren’t you??? Awww fuck it, go jump off a bridge.

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 5:23pm
  60. It’s actually kind of sad… while i live my (gay) life, I’m happy with my bf and look forward to waking up everyday. It’s by far not an easy life, but it’s mine. Unfortunately, people like that will never be able to experience the love and content I have in my life as they are too far in my life they forget about there own. I do hope one day these people wake up and realize I don’t choose to be with another man, it’s simply I refuse to lie to myself and I’ll be damned if anyone tries to make it different. I do hope she finds whatever it is she’s looking for and finds peace and harmony within this life.

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 5:30pm
  61. …sorry…all I heard was “Linda Harvey…pathetic…lifeless…”…

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 5:52pm
  67. What a turd.

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 5:55pm
  68. She lives in fairy tale world. It would pay her to bone up on the party line from the Ex-Gay Ministries themselves: They are no longer stating that changing sexual orientation is expected or even attainable. That is, they are teaching, an unattainable goal. Some people, they say, do appear to change orientation; others do not. They focus on behavior modification now. But, like most on her side of the aisle, she has likely replaced the Gospel itself with moralism and doesn’t bother to keep herself up-to-date on the teachings OF HER OWN SIDE OF THE AISLE.

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 6:00pm
  69. ahhh what abut her..isn’t she “pathetic” and “lifeless” because she has to spew hate on a daily bases? If there are anit-gay people out there why not anti-straight protesters?

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 6:08pm
  70. Her logic is pathetic and lifeless.

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 6:15pm
  71. her logic is absolutely stupid and truly insane

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 6:37pm
  72. She is probably going to hate herself so much soon if not already. All that hate is going to explode!

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 6:42pm
  73. get a life and leave ours alone

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 6:43pm
  74. It must really hurt for her to look in the mirror each morning and see that she has no soul, how sad

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 7:20pm
  75. Honey (Mitch) no soul, and she must know she is hard to look at…she has a face for radio, only!!!!!!! Ish!!!

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 8:06pm
  77. I dare someone to look at our engagement photos and call us lifeless. Love is a beautiful thing anyone who disagrees hasn’t experienced it first-hand.

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 8:17pm
  78. Maybe she should try again if she had a bad expirience xD

    Posted on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 10:46pm
  79. 1st of all… this Linda Harvey looks pathetic and lifeless. 2nd of all, if same sex relationships are pathetic and lifeless, why do so many heterosexuals have an issue with letting homesexuals live how they wish?

    Posted on Tuesday, June 19, 2012 at 7:49am
  83. Linda Harvey, you are the pathetic and lifeless one to devote your radio show to same sex relationships and denouncing the gay community. Listen woman, they exist, they are successful and they are happy. Too bad your voice is falling on deaf ears.
