In Mission America president Linda Harvey’s world, students across America are rebelling against gay rights and it is time for parents to “pick up the ball and run with it.” On her radio bulletin today, Harvey said that “students all over the country” are working against “the homosexual party line” and that it is time for parents to “stand up” to the “foolish and deceptive” gay rights movement. While a recent poll found that 71 percent of college students support marriage equality for gays and lesbians, Harvey claimed that young people “know in their hearts that homosexuality is wrong,” citing the ‘Straight Pride’ t-shirts which include an excerpt from Leviticus saying that gays should be put to death.
Harvey: There are students all over the country who are very turned off by the homosexual party line in public school and in college. Some respond with t-shirts saying something like ‘Straight Pride,’ others report what’s going on to their parents and some parents pick up the ball and run with it. Others don’t and that is very troubling because we need to be those parents who go to bat over these principles. Our children are watching and they know in their hearts that homosexuality is wrong. They are waiting for adults to stand up to this foolish and deceptive agenda.
