Mission: America

Mission: America is a Columbus, Ohio-based Christian organization founded in 1995 that seeks to “cover the latest cultural and social trends in our country and what they might mean for Christians.” The organization publishes articles on its web site about its views on homosexuality and paganism. Its founder and president, Linda Harvey, is an outspoken critic of LGBT rights, including same-sex marriage. The Southern Poverty Law Center designated Mission: America as an active anti-gay hate group in March 2012 based on its particular anti-LGBT rights stances.
