A US radio host has taken aim at trans activist and actress Laverne Cox, saying that her appearance on a TIME magazine cover is part of Satan’s “strategy to undermine the moral base of America.”

Cox was earlier this year featured on the cover of TIME magazine,after criticism as she was not featured in its list of 100 Most Influential People.

Linda Harvey of Mission America spoke out against the trans rights movement, specifically criticising Cox, in her radio programme this

She said: “I think America is quickly moving into chaotic territory where we are blessing and approving behaviors that so completely defy reality and the will of God that the consequences will be devastating, especially to kids.”

“If Satan were to devise a strategy to confuse and undermine the moral base of America, he could not have chosen a better vehicle than pushing gender confusion, which is just the latest offshoot of the homosexual movement.”

Referring to the upcoming appearance of a trans priest at the National Cathedral, she said it was an attack by “this diabolical homosexual and transgender movement.”

“It’s spiritual deception on a wide scale and is breathtaking to watch,” she said.
