Book telling parents to ignore their gay kids pulled from Amazon by publisher

A book telling parents to ignore their gay kids and ‘help’ them with their sexuality has been pulled from Amazon. 

Written by radical anti-LGBTI leader of Mission: America Linda Harvey, the book claims to ‘help’ teens realize their ‘bright future’ regardless of ‘same-sex attractions or gender confusion’.

Titled Maybe He’s Not Gay: Another View on Homosexuality, the book insists ‘as more and more young people announce this is their identity, it’s time to take a closer look.’

On coming out, Harvey says many young people think it is a ‘new civil right’ to be ‘who you are’.

‘But there’s a problem. Are we sure this is the truth?’ she says. ‘Does this identity bring the promised liberation and the key to a whole new life?

‘Does it lift the burden of secrecy – or begin a different kind of struggle?’

According to Back2Stonewall.com, the book deemed ‘irresponsible and potentially dangerous’ was pulled by Amazon. 

But after contacting Amazon, GSN was told it was in fact the publishers that chose to no longer stock the book on the website. 

Harvey has a long history of airing her homophobic views.

In the past, she has said LGBTIs are not ‘people’, and should not be given equal protection under US law.

Harvey said in 2011 gay rights advocates were ‘masters of demonic manipulation’.

She has also referred to the It Gets Better video project as ‘wrong, it’s evil, it’s dark’.

In August 2011, Harvey said weekend radio show that ‘There is no proof that there’s ever anything like a gay, lesbian or bisexual or transgendered child, or teen or human.’

The Southern Poverty Law Center, a US civil rights organization has designated Harvey and Mission America as an active anti-gay hate group.
