Hate-monger and failed logician Linda Harvey, on Exodus International head honcho, Alan Chambers:
For one, Chambers has said he doesn’t believe a person can change his or her so-called sexual orientation. Now, there’s not anything like this invented term called “sexual orientation” in Scripture in the first place, but then he also says that he still struggles himself with sexual feelings for other males. This shows very poor judgment as the leader of this ministry to, first of all, be experiencing this and secondly, to announce it to the whole world….
We would not be making this exception for well-adjusted adulterers would we? How about a compassionate pedophile? What about incest like two brothers involved in homosexuality? Why not just defy God’s word on this?
So, two things:
1. In Harvey’s mind, if something can’t be found in Christianity’s magic book, it didn’t exist. Which is interesting, because when I was a youngun’ in Sunday School, I don’t recall reading a single verse about Miss Thing’s hair color or polyester business suits. (NB: That photo at right is NOT current.)
2. Then there’s the logical jump that Harvey makes by equating Chambers’ daydreams of boy-kissing with actual boy-kissing. True, religious wingnuts have often toed that same line, but that doesn’t make the concept any less crazy. I’m sure that Harvey’s own thoughts have always been pure as the driven snow, but can her hate-group co-workers say the same?
