Linda Harvey, president of Mission America and a Christian radio host recently said some fairly shocking things. I know not really news since this is the same woman who said not to let your children go to gay doctors and also advocated firing of homosexual employees. True, she didn't say over eating will make you gay but she compared the two in the following quote:
"Many people struggle with appetites for food that lead to obesity but very few were born with a hormonal imbalance leading to weight gain, almost everyone learned these appetites along the way so unlearning them will also be a step-by-step process but it is most certainly possible, starting with facing the truth. It’s kind of similar with homosexual feelings. But no, the world’s message today is go for it, declare yourself and join the out-and-proud community."
Thanks to Right Wing Watch I also have the audio to give you:
At the end you can hear the joyful generic music. Gotta love the generic christian radio music. Just wanted to point that out there. Any who I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that this woman might be a little bat shit crazy. Verging on Pat Robertson beating your wife crazy. This woman a few days before saying this also claimed that the two med who have a law suit against Ohio cause they can't get married -as a same sex couple- "should have married a woman". And also called the whole thing "nonsense". This lady is in every way an anti-gay activist. She waste her days saying how awful homosexuals are. But what about the rapist and murders? The pedophiles? Or even the common everyday robbers? Nothing. Nothing on how "disgusting" and "vile" they are. Absolutely nothing. To her the worst thing someone can be is gay. Which I don't understand due to all the types of people I stated above. I'd love to hear why she doesn't make statements about them. But I digress.
In short homosexuality is nothing compared to overeating. In fact they have nothing in common with each other. If you have to be told that and educated on why that is then I feel bad for you. Cause you are blinded by what you call the "truth". I hope though for every ones sake one day you see that loving another human being no matter their sex is not a sin.
