Linda Harvey backs a 'kind and civil' form of anti-LGBT teaching

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2013-06-10 At 4.41.08 PmSpeaking about federal measures that would help prevent bullying targeted at LGBT students, MIssion America's Linda Harvey says the following:

"Our children all deserve kindness and civility, and that can happen even if they are learning homosexuality is wrong. And they're trying to combine the two and say that they are the same thing." [SOURCE]

Riiiiight, Linda. "Johnny, your two mommies are immoral and hellhound," says the smiling public school teacher before wooing little Johnny's affections with an extra five minutes at recess.

Um, no. Sorry. There is no "kind and civil" way for our public schools to teach that LGBT students, among the most vulnerable of all students, are wrong and deserve to be left vulnerable. It's probably easy for Linda to think there is, since she is a long-time practitioner of "pro-family" activism, where nice-sounding code words are exalted above demonstrably cruel actions. But the rest of us aren't buying it.
