Linda Harvey Explains ‘The Gay’

Linda Harvey, who is so virulently bigoted against gays that she is utterly deranged, can easily explain why men become gay. It’s a bizarre, rambling, incoherent explanation, of course, but it’s kind of amusing to hear. It’s all about “sinful attitudes” and stuff.

What Floyd [Godfrey] writes makes practical as well as spiritual sense. He suffered from intense envy and admiration of other boys and wanted to be like them but felt different and inferior. As he hit puberty this envy took on a sexual dimension but it was the longing for a close, affirming male friendship that was at the root of these desires. Floyd knew he did not want to go down the road of homosexuality. His faith in Christ prompted him to keep praying for a change in his feelings but that change did not happen until he went to a conference of others who had overcome these desires. It was a major turning point, what he learned put him on the path toward healing of the many other issues that he believes God wanted him to recognize. Repentance and then transformation began to take place in Floyd’s life and as he dealt with envy, grudge-holding and other sinful attitudes, the same-sex desires diminished and he began to feel something entirely unexpected: attractions to women.

Right. Because straight people never have envy or hold grudges. WTF?

    Can you say ‘bisexual’ boys and girls?

  2. georget:

    Maybe its anger.

  3. jameshanley:

    So he began lusting after women? I’m pretty sure that means he’s still sinning, eh?

  4. Michael Heath:

    Floyd Godfrey’s supposed experience:

    . . . the same-sex desires diminished and he began to feel something entirely unexpected: attractions to women.

    John Pieret responds:

    Can you say ‘bisexual’ boys and girls?

    I wouldn’t. Instead I don’t trust any assertions made by Mr. Godfrey. I’d want all his claims empirically and independently validated.

    Oh, I agree. But it struck me that Harvey seemed to think “diminished” same sex attraction, along with opposite sex attraction was a good thing. But what she was describing is bisexuality, which I did not know evilgelicals had embraced.

  6. stever:

    Fundigelicals don’t recognize the existence of bisexuality. If you succeed in praying away the gay, that makes you absolutely straight. If you still feel any same-sex attraction, you haven’t yet succeeded in praying away the gay.

  7. glodson:

    It sounds like she’s mistaking homosexuality with the Old Ones.

    –>According to the wingnut, when a kid feels “different” and “inferior,” that turns him gay.

    So what, exactly, is the strategy behind bullying of gay teens? (Or younger boys who may or may not be gay, but who exhibit “girly” tendencies.)

    I don’t know why I attempt to resolve all the inherent contradictions in Wingnutistan. It’s like trying to resolve all the inherent contradictions in the Bible.
