'Maybe he's not gay' prompts homosexual backlash
WND ^ | 1/9/2014 | Cliff Kincaid

Posted on 01/12/2014 7:46:12 PM PST by NetAddicted

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 that 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.

Has Amazon actually pulled the book? They even sell Mein Kampf on there for crying out loud. Then again... Bezos.

63 leftists, none of whom bought the book, have given in 1 star on Amazon, but it seems to be there. I think conservatives need to start thinking about keeping any psychotic libtards away from their children, no matter if its the mailman or your brother in law.

I understood it was a copyright permissions issue, not a matter of how Huffington carried outrageous and scandalous stuff.

This will never get the exposure that Duck Dynasty receives. I could ask anybody off the street regardless of which side they were on and they would know about Duck Dynasty. This author is not known at all.

My first impression was that it was about Obummer.

It would still have the same attacks.

"I think conservatives need to start thinking about keeping any psychotic libtards away from their children, no matter if its the mailman or your brother in law."

Start with the teachers. Homos and pro-homos infest our colleges here in Idaho, and judging from young people I've talked with, the high schools, too. I don't have kids, but if I did, I would home school or somehow come up with the money for private school.

Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!

In the article it states that she asked Amazon to pull the book because of the attacks by those who hadn’t even read the book. You can still purchase it through WND or her website. She plans to have it listed on Amazon in the future when the furor has died down.

Just ordered my kindle copy from Amazon, so the rumors of it being pulled are, at best, incorrect. Looking forward to reviewing it on Amazon shortly, despite the obvious irrational hostility in the comments. What a war zone. Obvious Pavlovian conditioning.

I totally agree ; no one is born homo , it is a willful and intentional adopted behavior , and parents should ABSOLUTELY push back against the rotten homosexual agenda and teach their children well . Straight ‘anti’ talk and information early on , as awkward as that may seem . Parents can no longer afford to leave their kids morality in the hands of the schools and at the mercy of some of their queer peers .

This actually is a war on the home front , a war for the morality of America . And God is watching ....

“Is she dangerous?”

Only because of her communist leanings.

Eh, I kind of relate to her, I’m the shorty in a family of giants too. But at least you can easily get people to reach things down for you!

Totally agree. We’re going to wind up with a situation where parents only get to foot the bills while the state decides what indoctrination, “normalisation” they shall receive-the state’s version of “it takes a village”. I wouldn’t let anyone, including family members, near my kids if they even looked like trying to normalise deviant behavior to my kids as opposed to the teachings of the kids’ parents. If they don’t like it, tough, there’s (sadly) too many agencies out there now which will give them access to other people’s kids in order to corrupt them.

**How about the gay gene?**

IF a gay gene was found in an unborn child, and the parents started aborting them, would the LIBS come out against abortion?

The reviews at that link are very interesting. Apparently the book is only offered in Kindle distribution.

Remember the good old days when homosexuals were considered to be mentally ill?

One of my students was “gay” in 9th grade. He hit 10th grade and started dating girls. It is a total lie to say that sexuality is determined at birth.

I'm sure I'm not alone, but don't we ALL know some woman who was married, had kids, and then in her 30s-40s "came out" as a lesbian?

Heck, look at Meridith Baxter-Birney.

HOW could someone hit 55 and hate sex SO much with men, yet STILL has five, yes FIVE kids?

It doesn't make sense.

No matter what "society thinks", I could NEVER have sex with another man. Even for pretend. I'm just not into it.

I like women.

Is that so wrong?

A close relative has a doctorate in counseling, teaching in a state university. It is common knowledge that there are common traits among male homosexuals.

Absent or distant Father.

At a young age they were molested by an older male or introduced to homosexual behavior by peers.

it's common knowledge but no one can acknowledge it or say it's wrong.

Unlike other sexually immoral behavior, homosexuality is always preceded by denial of explicit Divine grace and rebellion of His Providence. Those who know God because He showed Himself to them, but then chose to turn the truth of God into a lie and worshiped the creation rather than the Creator, have been turned over to their own lusts and to seek that which isn’t convenient.

Romans 1:28-32 is even more explicit of the true “Gay” lifestyle.
