Radio host claims LGBT news sites turn kids gay

A controversial radio host is claiming Gay Star News and other LGBT news sites can turn kids gay.

Linda Harvey, host of Mission America’s radio show, says gay news sites and blogs that are ‘sympathetic to the social and political goals of the homosexual movement’ will lead children into questioning their sexuality.

As Right Wing Watch reports, she warned parents ‘homosexual-themed pornography is extremely accessible to young people if they ever visit any websites covering the gay agenda as news’.

She brought up an example that if a child was doing a report on same-sex marriage and visiting an LGBT news site to research the topic, it may lead them to becoming curious due to the ‘soft-porn gay dating sites or worse as ads’.

Harvey said: ‘If they follow up and visit these sites some will experience sexual feelings and mistake these for the pervasive fiction of some inborn gay identity.

‘After all, isn’t this the message that kids get everywhere that “some of you are destined for homosexuality and there is nothing you can do about it so just go with it and be proud”? All of this, of course, is a lie.’

The radio host also claimed ‘Hollywood and even the top leaders in our country are all busy selling homosexuality to kids’ and this message has the ability to ‘stir feelings in a young person that were not in play before.’

Harvey is well known for spreading anti-gay messages on her radio show.

In April, she argued marriage equality will ‘victimize’ children and put them at risk of ‘more disease, more anxiety, depression’. 

Last year, Harvey released a guide for talking to kids about homosexuality that said being gay is like being fat and ‘always wrong’.

Tris Reid-Smith, the editor of Gay Star News, said: ‘When I was little, I got all my headlines from the newsflashes on the Muppets. And I have noticed my eyes bulging recently, my skin growing yellow fur and my hands waggling around randomly.

‘Alternatively it could be that Linda Harvey is the one spreading propaganda and we are just trying to produce honest, accurate journalism. It’s time for grumpy old Statler and Waldorf to boo her off the stage.’
