  1. “suggesting that they were not victims of discrimination because they always had the option of marrying a woman.”


  2. What a heartless bitch, this shows the level of compassion of this particular Christian. This made me really angry, the self-righteousness of these people is simply astonishing. Blind hatred and cruelty presented as respectiblilty and “morality”. Seriously, just fúck off.

      For people like her compassion is just the word that follows compass in the dictionary. She doesn’t know what it means or how to apply it. All she knows is hatred and anger.

    2. It doesn’t do any good to tell them to pfuque off … they then just scream “PERSECUTION!” Never mind that they have been burning, hanging, drowning, drawing and quartering, etc. GLBTQAI people for two thousand years.

      Have things changed?


      Have a look at the calls to kill us in Africa, egged on by a “prominent” and “respected” US konservative kristianist kook (KKK).

      And those calls are being echoed in US federal and state legislatures.

      Those making those calls need to be repudiated and removed from office … across the board.

  3. She accused others of “clueless, immoral leadership”. LOL.

    I guess that we can’t accuse her of the same, as this dimwit certainly doesn’t show any leadership.

    This ignorant fool of all fools should be dismissed as “nonsense”, and the sooner we stop hearing about her foolish ugly views the better it will be for humanity.

  5. Because if we’re under-qualified every debate turns into a passionate argument… and from the sparks of that conflict rise the flames of desire, flames that ignite into an uncontrolled frenzy of lust, passion and ecstasy!!! Causing large forest fires in Colorado.

    1. Yeah, knock it off already, we’ve had enough of those fires!

    2. Get back on the meds Eriic

  6. They don’t come much thicker than than that.

  7. If she actually believes a word of what she says, she is stupid.

    If she doesn’t believe it, she is pure evil.

    1. Pure evil I would say!

      All this humbug and bile she spouts is to keep her radio host programme in the news – like many other ‘pastors’ and televangelists who are ripping off their followers.

  8. Oh, uh uh. How miserable can she get?

    Her analogy is invalid. “Sophie”, with all her fancy, does not have the skills required to perform operations. Gay men and lesbians have all the ‘skill’ necessary to love another person, regardless of that person’s gender

  10. Her God taught her to spread hatred,fear,bigotry,discrimination,hell and damnation and how to to be judgmental. To have absolutely no compassion or love for anyone else that doesn’t know her God or except his and her extremely narrow minded and righteous beliefs. HOWEVER! She loves her children so much, she’ll no doubt teach them how to behave as a Christian should. Would love to see their faces when they arrive in their Heaven. Lets all hope it’s a one way ticket as they have learnt nothing from this life. On the other hand, My God might send her back immediately, as a Russian Lesbian.

    Seriously, her argument is what won the day in past court dismissals for relief in marriage equality cases.

    We were ‘perverts’ and our love was criminal — we were shaped to expect to be treated as such.

    However, her thinking and many like hers will soon enough be found in the ‘dustbin of history’. People are waking to the fact that custom, culture and religion joined to deny us equal treatment of the laws. They are joining our struggle.

    Desmond Tutu sees our situation not unlike that of an apartheid that must be defeated.

    Our love matters, not being like them in order to love. We are an international movement for equality.

    Harvey is losing.

    1. Actually, many people believe the west is in a state of “sexual aparteid”, following the explosion of sexual liberation in the 60’s –

      “gay ghettos” in cities like New York, Berlin, and even my home town of Liverpool.”Metrosexuals”, the “Gay” sub-section in everthing from film, to books, to resteraunts, holiday’s, retirement homes, bars, hotels etc. – sexual aparteid. I believe this has happened because people have refused to stay in the closet but are still very much encouraged to do so by straight society.

      We’re in a state of post traumatic stress disorder – people demand we tell them we’re gay, think they have a right to know & once we’ve given them the gossip they want, they just shove us back in the closet, or encourage us to go to places where “we belong” in profession and leisure. Keep it “behind closed doors” and become” heteronormative”

      “It’s ok to be gay, as long as you don’t talk about it and keep to your gay zone when you do”

  12. The woman really is as thick as pig s**t isn’t she?

  13. Linda Harvey is so scarily intelligent, she knows absolutely everything and she is always right and everyone else is wrong.

  14. What is this lady talking about, for obvious reasons professionals need to be qualified.

    I was unaware qualifications are needed to love?

    The argument is about equality for marriage, not equality for professionals, what utter madness!

    Nonsense springs to mind.

  15. I wonder which one she would have been willing to marry.

  16. Awww. Those ‘loving’ christians strike again! So compassionate, so caring. Jesus would have been so proud …..

    They just don’t get it do they… so sad.

    Clearly never loved…. clearly can see why!

    Seems they trot out together in waves. They try to compete to who can be more vile….. I think they compete to who could be more boring!!

    America’s answer to Dr. Sharon James of C4M. Demented freak who needs to be put out of her misery.

  19. And unfortunately Sophie’s first patient was a little girl named Linda who didn’t fare so well after her brain surgery…. Dumbass. The bible says that women should be silent in public!

  20. Susan Carr 31 Jul 2013, 1:03pm

    She needs to take a lesson from the pope. Who is she to judge?

  21. I wish this poisonous tramp would keep her mouth shut…….anyone got an industrial staple gun?

    On a serious note you have to remember she is actually paid to be such an evil bitch.

  22. Who cares to listen to an ignorant bigot on the radio anyway.
    I simply rest in the knowledge that her God will deliver plenty of discipline for her hateful, abusive attitude.

  23. Is Linda Harvey married to an homosexual man then?

  24. Clearly a sandwich short of a picnic, poor love. But just smell that good old ‘christian’ hate. I do wonder how these people live with themselves.

  25. There was something about Linda Harvey’s methodology that rang a verdigrised bell in the back of my 69 year old mind and two things popped up; one, a quote from the philosopher, George Santayana: “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it”. The second was the name of a most infamous woman, from WW2, Ilse Koch, the Bitch of Buchenwald.

    Though not the nymphomaniac that Koch was, she’s sublimated it into religious fanaticism, and the executions and tortures are, instead, her venomous words and lies.

    And like Koch and all other megalomaniacs, Harvey will step over that fine line which divides free speech from incitement and the government and Constitution will send the hounds of justice for her, and like Koch, she’ll realize too late that when she’s condemned, her family will bear the brunt of her hatred, not just her. Society will brand them as pariahs, by association and perhaps that’s just as well.
