Following LaBarbera's lead, Linda Harvey redefines 'truth'

by Jeremy Hooper

Linda Harvey, one of the most extremely anti-gay members of our opposition, has launched a new group called "Truth at School," whose purported goal is to "stop the promotion of homosexuality in our schools." And for all you need to know about Ms. Harvey's version of "truth," just look at the entry page to her new web site:

Picture 1-94

"Changeable? " So we guess she's using the sort of "truth" that is unsupported by every single credible medical organization in this nation!

"Not Genetic?" So we guess she's using the sort of "truth" that knows more about human genomes than even the most learned of geneticists!

"High Risk?" So we guess she's using the sort of "truth" that views all gay folks as anonymous-sex loving, multi-partnered club drug abusers, attacking people rather than the risky behaviors in which they may engage (be they are straight or gay)!

Hmm....perhaps One-SidedJunkScienceThatWeUseToDemonizeGaysSoThatWeCanMakeOurBiasedOutlooksLookLessMean-SpiritedAtSchools.org was already taken? Or maybe just like her side has hijacked the words "pro-family," "pro-life," "pro-marriage," "traditional values," and numerous other words in order to mask their true antipathy, they are now laying their claim to this particular noun? Or maybe Linda has designed a new sort of headgear called the "Trut Hat," and she's trying to encourage to wear the "Trut hat at school" by lying about the gay designers with whom she's in competition?

Well, whatever the case, you can check out Linda's "truth"-filled web site below. It's as reliable as Pinocchio's less trustworthy cousin!

Truth" At School [TAS]

**UPDATE: We had a question about the "Not genetic" thing, so we wanted to clarify: We are not saying in any way that homosexuality is 100%, irrefutably genetic. We are saying that at this point in time, Ms. Harvey has absolutely no real scientific basis for saying "Every student deserves to know that homosexuality is not genetic." She can theorize and she can of course put out her opinions on the subject. However, she is presenting this "not genetic" stances as "truth." That's where we take issue.

Your thoughts

Do these people grow on trees? It's like they take turns to see who can stir up the most crap for us.
