On her radio show today, Mission America’s Linda Harvey absurdly stated that LGBT rights groups like the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network and the Human Rights Campaign refuse to condemn child abuse.
Discussing the case of a Boy Scouts of America scoutmaster in Virginia who was sentenced last month to 30 years in prison for 36 counts of child sex abuse, Harvey said that groups like GLSEN and HRC are “empowering such adults” by “promoting gay identities to kids.”
LGBT rights groups, she alleged, “set some kids up to this kind of abuse” and “make it easier for those who prey on teens and preteens to convince the vulnerable child, ‘Hey maybe you were born to do this.’”
“No matter what homosexuals claim, their movement is quite friendly to pedophilia,” Harvey continued. “Where’s the condemnation from the Human Rights Campaign or GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network?” she asked.
She then linked the scoutmaster case to days honoring the life and legacy of Harvey Milk: “On May 22nd, California schools will observe Harvey Milk Day and this is an example of the corruption the left is able to get away with.”
