"Maybe He's Not Gay" Hits Home Run, Catches Homo-Activist Flak
Renew America ^ | January 14, 2014 | Gina Miller

Posted on 01/14/2014 2:05:55 PM PST by WXRGina

Listen to an audio version of this column

Mission America Radio Host, speaker and author Linda Harvey is spot-on over the target with her excellent new book for young people, Maybe He's Not Gay: Another View on Homosexuality, and she's catching frenzied homosexual activist flak because of it.

I am on Linda Harvey's e-mail list, and she recently sent out an alert that her book had been released and was available at Amazon.com. She also said that the radical homosexual activists had immediately waged a vicious assault campaign against it in the reviews and comments section. Many of the "reviewers" had clearly not read her book, and instead hurled despicable lies at Linda. Because of this, she directed that the book be pulled from Amazon. She has since put it back up on Amazon, and the senseless vitriol continues. The book is also available in paperback or e-book form at the Next Century Store.

Homosexual radicals stand in an untenable position of deceit about the nature of their lifestyle and the real-world results of their behavior, and they detest any debate about it. That is why they aggressively work to stifle all voices that present the truth about the many and varied dangers of homosexual behavior. Instead of welcoming honest dialogue, they attempt to vilify, demean and ridicule those of us who present the truth. Their chief weapons are hostility and baseless name-calling, and this is clearly in evidence in the reviews section of Linda's book on Amazon.

But here's the truth that the homo-radicals don't want you to know: this book is an excellent, valuable and much-needed resource for kids who may be dealing with same-sex attraction; not only for them, but also for parents, teachers, pastors, counselors and any young person today, since most of our kids are under a barrage of pro-homosexual propaganda in their schools, from the media and entertainment industries. It is a very well-written, concise and plainly-worded book that takes young people through the whole process of examining homosexuality, peer pressures, causes, the homosexual agenda, family and school issues – the whole nine yards. She wraps up with the message of help, hope and freedom found in Jesus Christ.

This book should be available in every library, especially in junior high and high school libraries here in the United States, where the homosexual movement is steamrolling across our land as never before. Our kids are being targeted today in devilish ways we have never seen in the history of our nation. Homosexual activists are working feverishly to indoctrinate and recruit kids to their way of thinking, to view homosexuality as just another acceptable sexual preference, while they hide the awful side of it, the devastated minds, bodies and spirits of people who have plunged into homosexuality and paid a dear price for it.

Linda Harvey's book is a huge threat to the false claims of homosexual activists. This book busts the main myths of the homosexual movement – that people are "born that way" and cannot change, that those of us who warn of the dangers inherent in the homosexual lifestyle are "haters" and "bigots," that taking the leap into homosexuality at a young age will make you happy, and others. Linda presents the truth about homosexuality in a gentle, thoughtful and clear way that leads young people through the illogic of the message of homosexual activist groups that don't tell young people the truth, and she guides them into the compelling logic of the truth about homosexuality.

Because of this, the homosexual activists are attacking Linda and her book with all the venom they possess. They have flooded her book's Amazon page with fake reviews full of nonsensical verbal assaults, causing it to average a phony two-star rating for what is a five-star-quality book. We need to get copies of this book, read it and run a counter-offensive of truthful ratings and comments, because this book is a timely, excellent resource for young people. The inordinate screeching and wailing of the homo-radicals is a testament to the powerful message Linda's book contains, because even though many of them have not read the book, they can guess what the book will say based on Linda's previous writings.

Here is a sampling of the insane, lying rants posted by homosexual activists on the Amazon page for Maybe He's Not Gay:

Jesse M: "I wish there was a negative star. What disgusting human trash wrote this? Linda Harvey writes at a 2nd grade level, which is being kind. Is there a book that can help me teach my daughter how to NOT be like Linda?"

William T. Rhea: "Linda Harvey eats children. Linda Harvey is a famous anti-American bigot who makes money of off the bigotry of others. She is barely literate and incapable of advanced thought. If it weren't for hate, she'd be homeless and living on the streets."

John E. Bogeman II: "How to encourage your children to commit suicide. ... There is something seriously wrong with Linda Harvey. Only a true evil person would write a book on how to kill one's child and pass it off as love. She is an effing sociopath. Amazon should be ashamed of trying to profit off of hatred, bigotry, ignorance and homophobia."

BarbaraD: "Typical right wing trash from Harvey. If you follow Harvey's 'work' at all – and I never would have heard of her if some specific websites I read had directed me to it – you will know that she's not just a typical anti-gay religious right figure, she's a raving lunatic with dangerous, half-baked ideas and exists with her hysteria dial cranked up to 10. Demeaning gay people is all she does; she seems to have nothing else to say."

Jim: "A Waste of Electrons. Nothing but pure hatred delivered to your Kindle. You're better off flushing your $6.99 down the crapper than spend it on this trash."

John E. Visser: "Homophbic, Mean, Nasty, Dribble. See for yourself, simply search the web for Linda Harvey and you'll understand the vile hate coming from this 'Christian' woman."

John H. Thiel: "A Nobel Prize in Horror Fiction. You have to wonder what caused this harridan to be so filled with hate towards gay people. Every waking moment of her life is just filled with hate-hate-hate. And now she has written a screed about destroying your kids if you discover they are gay. She might as well have written a how-to book on teenage suicide."

As of this writing, there are close to eighty such desperate, detestable "book reviews" on Linda's Amazon page. Needless to say, these people all worked in concert, giving each other "thumbs-up" marks on each of their bogus reviews, creating a false low rating on Linda's book. We need to counter this with truthful reviews and "thumbs-down" marks on the liars' "reviews."

I highly recommend that you buy copies of Maybe He's Not Gay (either from the Next Century Store or at Amazon), read it, and consider donating copies to school libraries and giving them to the young people you know. This book needs to be widely disseminated across our land to help counter the dangerous lies of the radical homosexual movement that are being force-fed to our precious kids.

Interesting comment by a "reviewer". Makes a HUGE assumption that the author wishes to kill children. But the most obvious thing here is that the "reviewer" probably supports abortion on demand.

Not a bad idea for as many Freepers as possible to go to that page on Amazon, and vote five stars for all the favorable reviews and one star for the liberal attack reviews.

That can help just as much as writing a favorable review of the book.

I haven't read the book but I'll say this about the reviews on Amazon:
If the flak is that heavy you must be over the target.

Yes, that’s an excellent idea. I was hoping FReepers would pitch in and do that. The book really is an excellent one.

Yes, sorry. I should have said to vote “Yes” on the five star reviews and “No” on the one star reviews. There are a ton of reviews, since the gay crowd really piled in on this.

Anyway I’m just back from doing that.

If you take the time, there are two reviews, one four-star and one five, which PRETEND to be favorable but actually are snarky attacks. So if you really want to get it right, watch out for those. I’m afraid I didn’t make note of their titles. But if you’re in a hurry, better to get those two wrong and the other hundred or more right!

That’s right—there are a couple of trickster ones. Thanks for doing that! I know Linda Harvey appreciates it.

How many of our children are being killed by the homosexual lifestyle?

Just more of the bullying tactics the left love to decry yet use all the time because that’s the only way they can get their way.

How many of our children are being killed by the homosexual lifestyle?

Given the prevalence of AIDS among the gay community (The Washington Post reports the rate of HIV infection among gay men in 2005 was "San Francisco (24 percent), New York (25 percent) and Baltimore (40 percent)), allowing a young man to enter the gay lifestyle is effectively a death sentence.

That’s strange. I don’t have to be signed in to give a “not helpful” thumbs-down on all the fake reviews, though.

This goes right along with the gay gestapo's efforts to make sure "reparative therapy" - help for anyone who desires to leave the horror of the gay lifestyle behind - is not only discouraged but LEGALLY BANNED. Nothing matters to them but defending the gestapo - not children, not individuals, not schools, nothing. They are just the most vile group of people ever to band together.

Ditto!

Just went through all 14 pages of “reviews” (some really vile hate spewing from the gay gestapo there!).

Pretty simple to click “not helpful” on all the 1-star ‘reviews’ (ALL obviously fake and nothing more than undisguised hate) and click “helpful” on all the 5-star REAL reviews.

It won’t balance things out since we normal people seem so very lazy compared to the glazed-eyed gay fascists who have been flooding the site with fake hate ‘reviews’ and clicking “helpful” on them all —— but it’s at least a small step I can take.

John Thiel

School: Fairfield University
Location: Fairfield, CT
Department: Theology

Worst class I’ve even taken at Fairfield. If you disagree with him in class, or question him as I did, he will remember and grade you poorly on tests. Gets pleasure from being mean to students, and plays favorites a lot. I still get migraines when thinking about him. Avoid at all costs.

Say goodbye to any previous opinions you may have relating to Christianity or Buddhism...because they are automatically wrong in Thiel’s eyes. IF you attempt to argue one of his points in class, he will remember you and punish you on your test grade. Take anyone but him. Not a fun class, extremely boring, just a mean guy in general.

Thank you, SunkenCiv! Linda Harvey needs lots of help to counter the homo-brigade on Amazon.

What Freepers also need to do to counter the homesexual propaganda effort is to post reviews which include the same key sentence. The homosexual activists do this with their organized effort, and the result is that the key sentence is highlighted by Amazon at the beginning of the reviews with the tag, "24 reviewers made a similar statement."

One of the "most helpful" reviews (not mine) includes the following sentence: "The author is right that our kids are drowning in gay propaganda and they DESERVE the truth about homosexuality." If Freepers post reviews including that sentence or a very similar one, it might then be highlighted by Amazon. Freepers need to come up to speed with the propaganda methods of the left.

Don’t forget the comments section of the 5 star reviews. I haven’t looked at many of them, but what I saw was thumbs-down worthy.

Some of the hecklers obviously see themselves as literary geniuses while they wander around in search of clever cutting phrases. Most of the ridicule they excrete makes no sense and it isn’t meant to. They are just shooting from the hip and, in their world, there are no consequences for a bad aim.
