Accuracy in Media

Having suffered a major setback when Phil Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” got his job back, the gay lobby is now going for a softer target—a pro-family activist in Ohio whose book, Maybe He’s Not Gay, undercuts their recruitment efforts among kids.

Author Linda Harvey, who runs a pro-family ministry called Mission America, seems to have emerged as more of a target than Phil Robertson.

Robertson was suspended—then reinstated—from the show after making comments critical of homosexuality, some of them based on biology and the facts of life, and others on Bible passages.  

The Maybe He’s Not Gay book “seeks to tell kids the truth about homosexual behavior,” Harvey says. It explains in a conversational tone why no one is born homosexual, the health risks associated with the lifestyle, and factors which may lead to same sex attractions.

Harvey asserts that the homosexual movement is revolutionary and designed to overturn traditional cultural values. “It’s a revolution, both inside the minds and hearts of today’s youth—and in our culture,” her book says.

In response, the pro-homosexual Huffington Post attacked the book as “potentially dangerous” because it suggests children don’t have to engage in dangerous homosexual conduct, and that parents can influence how their children turn out. The publication also claimed that Amazon had “pulled” the book in response to homosexual criticism.

But Harvey tells Accuracy in Media she asked the publisher to pull her book from Amazon because it “had attracted the usual ‘gay’ mob with ad hominem attacks and even numerous review[er]s that admitted they had not read the book.” She said, “They just wanted to attack the idea of a book for kids, and me personally.”

She adds, “So once the book has been out for a while, we may put it back up on Amazon and hope to get actual reviews of thoughtful people who have read the book.”

However, in the meantime her book is available on her own website.

Last June, Harvey spoke at a press conference in front of the Washington, D.C. headquarters of the Human Rights Campaign, the leading gay rights lobby, to protest the organization’s inordinate influence on the public policy debate. “Their goal is nothing less than total suppression of all opposing viewpoints,” she said.

Her book argues, “At school, in the media, in books, kids are being urged to consider whether or not they are homosexual at younger and younger ages.”

She says the “You could grow up to be gay” message is being given to children even in elementary school, “creating a lot of emotional upheaval for many” and leading some to come to the false conclusion that they are homosexual.

It’s being done “to satisfy the goals of adults who want to change society through kids,” Harvey says. “Get people to accept homosexuality at a young age, and a small group of people can revolutionize the world. Trouble is, kids aren’t getting the whole story and the facts. In my opinion, they are being set up.”

The “revolutionary” aspect is apparent in that Harry Hay, a member of the Communist Party USA and supporter of the North American Man-Boy Love Association, founded the homosexual movement in the U.S.

“As a mother,” Harvey writes, “I especially want children to gain understanding about critical issues at the right time. To withhold information from young people, or worse, be intentionally deceptive, is a profound betrayal when adults ought to have the best interests of children at heart.”

In terms of those adults, the gay lobby, which is heavily funded by Hollywood and the media, reacted with dismay and outrage to Phil Robertson being reinstated on the “Duck Dynasty” show, which is carried by the A&E cable channel.

The reinstatement occurred because hundreds of thousands—perhaps millions—demanded it. Visitors to one site— —had a free, personalized, camouflage postcard with the message, “You Can’t Camouflage Anti-Christian Bigotry. Reinstate Phil!” sent to A&E.

Robertson’s company, Duck Commander, a maker of duck calls and other products, declared “Fan Appreciation Month” in response to the outpouring of support.

    The “Gay Rights” agenda is not for acceptance – it is for supremacy over all other lifestyles, even though they are in an extreme minority. The untold secret is that Washington DC is the capitol of “Fairyland”, and are always looking out for their compadres backsides, figuratively and literally.

    I’m not so sure the movement is anything more than a progressive government form of eugenics. All over America , our citizens have been complaining about being attacked by homosexual harassment squads since I was born in the sixties. These attacks are always based on ethnic dislikes , genocide , religious persecution , anti Semitic attacks , forced emigration , the allowance to work , direct political socialism and favoritism , marriage and having families and their inability to leave children alone. The White House should sign a confession and forward it to the UN explaining how they obtained so many political rights. These conducts are the same as hard line communists.

    I would like her to sit in a public forum with- a pediatrician, a child psychologist, an expert on human sexuality and a gay-affirming biblical scholar while some selected excerpt were read and discussed.
    Harvey’s own words will sink her. The book is as close to awful as I imagined it would be. It was also badly written. The typesetting were injurious to the eyes.

    “The typesetting were”?

    “Gay-affirming biblical scholar” is an oxymoron. The correct title would be, “gay-affirming biblical denier.” That is, unless you include “scholars” who deny Jesus lived, deny miracles recorded in the bible, deny that the bible is historically accurate, etc.

    I’m still waiting for a big, primetime, nationally televised documentary on the roots of the homosexual movement, tactics used for change, lobbying strategies, the political, media, non-profit, and business supporters of the movement, and end goals of the movement. The goal, for the uninformed, is the destruction of marriage and all sexual laws and morals of any kind, and the criminalization of all opposition to the homosex agenda. This necessarily (and especially) requires criminalization of all Christian opposition, which is why Obama aggressively promotes homosexuality in the military, and fiercely opposes conscience protections everywhere. When opposition is defeated everywhere else, the Churches will lose their rights, too. Individual Christians have already lost theirs.

    Our only current protections against the immorality tyrants are the Constitution (may it rest in peace), the military (almost conquered), the Church, and moral individuals who band together to resist.

    Who will broadcast such a special, explaining where we were legally, culturally, and morally in the 1950’s, and how we got here in 2014? NBC? CBS? Fox?

    Without a true Christian involved the panel you invision would not be able to have a fair and balanced debate.

    For goodness sake, if you you’re willing to entertain, promote and endorse the idea that a kid might have an SSA disorder, at least give them an out to escape the lifestyle. This isn’t a one way street to perversion you intolerant bigots.

    I am willing to entertain that SSA is a cross like many others that we are given to bear, but when you promote and endorse it Satan is having a gay old time.

    Their community and social attacks seem to be more consistent and in parallel with their fathers hetrosexual political and social agendas and it’s very , very important that the UN extends these right to the U.S. and they be allowed to run programs of crimes against humanity through racial and religious persecution , anti Semitic political attacks and programs of forced emigration and that these programs be monitored as freedom and democracy because they have more money than any one else.

    Linda Harvey is entitled to her supposedly “Christian” views, but I think that is a highly suspect assumption. I find that her life’s work strays far, far from the compassion and love that is the core of Christianity. Where she clearly goes to far is in her calls that gay adults not be employed and that children not be brought to gay docotrs. One wonders what planet she is living on. No matter how much I disagree with anybody or anyone’s lifestyle, I would not call for them to be impoverished or without employment. Her rhetoric is mean, spiteful and un-Christian and she will have to answer to a high power someday.
