Linda Harvey on anti-gay movement's next phase: 'To protect the innocent' from 'homosexuals'

by Jeremy Hooper

It's very interesting to watch the anti-LGBT activists process their crushing losses and impending political irrelevancy. Some are in deep denial. Some are viciously angry. Some are scheming whatever minor way they can chip away at progress, hoping to at least stay in business for a few more years.

Others have moved away from trying to save us from ourselves and are now moving on to "protecting the innocent" from the "wolves"

Screen Shot 2014-06-06 At 3.30.25 PmWe may be moving from a time where our biggest challenge was to witness to homosexuals, into a time where our biggest task is to protect the innocent from them. There are exceptions, of course, and I count on all my fellow believers to have the discernment to recognize those opportunities. But what greatly grieves me is that so few see the need for protection that is clearly before us. Too often the approach is to have no fear as we toss our children out in the world with no defense.

Well, the wolves are ready for them. Let’s hope there’s still time to pull them back inside before it’s too late.

Oh please, please, please let her take on a new career of writing children's books where we blow down little pigs' houses and eat Little Red Riding Hood's grandmother! Even though she'll have no political sway over our lives, I'd still like to keep Harvey's writing around for camp value alone.
