Dying Gay Man In Ohio Should’ve Married A Woman If He Wants A Spouse, Says Linda Harvey

linda harveyThere is no discrimination or inequality, either of these men could be married to a woman. Can marriage just be what anyone thinks it is? Here’s a possible analogy. Sophie wants to be a doctor, she’s never gone to medical school but in her mind she’s qualified to treat patients, even perform surgery. But the law only allows the practice of medicine by those who have attended medical school, passed the state board exams and so on. But isn’t this unequal protection? Aren’t Sophie’s fantasies valid? She believes she should be allowed to practice medicine therefore the requirements to be a licensed MD are unconstitutional for her.”


— Linda Harvey, the ever-sympathetic religious right activist and founder of conservative org Mission America, in reference to the Ohio-based couple Jim Obergefell and John Arthur, who married in Maryland, due to terminal illness

    Unqualified people working as doctors can kill people. Gay people getting married hurts no one.

  • 1EqualityUSA

    That was truly a mean-spirited thing to say. Never trust one who scowls and smiles at the same time…conflicted.

  • Dakotahgeo

    Linda Harvey = Super uneducated christian slut. And that’s her upside!

  • RRT

    OMG! Isn’t that Betty Bowers from Landover Baptist Church? The world’s greatest christian?

    …and unlike with sane people, there’s no point in explaining to her about the harm a gay person marrying someone of the opposite sex does to *both* parties because she doesn’t believe gay people exist anyway.

    But why does she have an audience? DOES she even have one, really?

  • Dakotahgeo

    @hyhybt: Since Queerty is a British Tabloid (or sounds like one at times), I don’t think even they know whether Saggy Boobs Harvey has any kind of audience but for whatever reason, they continue to treat these conservative doofusses as if they have brains. Their loss.

  • Larkin

    This woman is vile and disgusting.

  • hyhybt

    @Dakotahgeo: British? I thought they were New Yorkers.

  • ncman

    There are some people who just need to be slapped hard across the face after they say stuff.

  • hyhybt

    @ncman: Why wait?

  • smartguyd

    This bitch is asking for a fruit pie a la Anita Bryant

  • Dakotahgeo

    @hyhybt: That could be but a certain amount of their stories give a British flavor to it. NYorkers could be true.

    She has got to be about the stupidest person on Earth. I usually use “bigot” or “homophobe” or “ignorant” to describe our enemies. For her I would use 24 carat dumbf**k. She’s such a whopping moron it’s almost laughable. People this stupid should just have been drowned at birth.

  • Charli Girl

    No idea who this broad is! Who cares what it says

  • Atomicrob

    How sad that someone would have such an incredible lack of compassion or empathy that she would resort to use a bizarre false equivalent to create this distorted homophobic rationalization for her bigoted position.

    What a dumb woman. Her analogy is completely irrelevant, because gay people existing, living together and sharing their lives together IS NOT A FANTASY! A crazy person saying they’re a doctor without any credentials is in no way comparable to two people who are in a relationship for 50 years saying they deserve to be married! This woman’s ignorance is astounding.

  • Jake357

    Sounds like someone secretly followed her husband to that cruisy spot off Hwy 69 one day and didn’t at all like what she discovered and now she’s taking her vitriol out on everyone so they can look as miserable as she does.

  • Caliban

    And Linda Harvey should jump feet-first into a wood-chipper. The world would be a much better place.

  • arj

    Does this broad sell Florida orange juice?

  • avesraggiana

    @arj: You know, I was just wondering the same thing. Those of us “of a certain” surely remember…

  • Matt G

    sorry, that’s not an actual analogy of the situation, however it does show that part of the root of the problem is christians still think our sexuality is fake and something that was just made up compared with the rock-solid and infinite truth that is heterosexuality

  • avesraggiana

    @arj: Those of us “of a certain age”, that is.

  • GeriHew

    I would like to ask Ms Harvey if she would like to marry a gay man. And if she would, why?

  • hf2hvit

    Is she married? If so, too bad for her that her husband didn’t marry a woman

  • arj

    @avesraggiana: LOL, it’s hell gettin’ old, eh?

  • Rusty66

    I don’t think Jesus would approve of Ms. Harvey.
