Linda Harvey Admits The Anti-Marriage Equality Fight Comes Down To Her Dislike Of Gay Sex

The antigay divas are on a roll this week, and of course Linda Harvey had to get her two cents in.

The eagle-eyed writers over at Good As You have discovered Harvey’s admission that the aversion to marriage equality that she and all of her cohorts are so adamant about stating isn’t really about “protecting” traditional marriage, it’s about the fact that they think gay sex is really, really icky.

Writing at WND with the hilarious tagline “The Gaying Of America” (can someone greenlight that 10-part PBS miniseries?), Harvey lets it all hang out, and by “it” we mean her real problem with marriage equality.

We aren’t fighting to protect marriage because the term and tradition are important. Let’s be honest that the only reason for this dispute is because people want to engage in anatomically challenged behavior that is observably unnatural, medically risky, improper as an example for children, and changeable. And it’s a behavior God calls sin. There is no other biblical description of homosexuality except always and only a big taboo. So in view of marriage law or public accommodations, could the immorality of homosexuality be a rationale for refusing to honor same-sex nuptials? Absolutely, it should be.

So, pay no attention to the thousands of rights that are denied to gay couples who can’t get married, or the fact that they are more often than not in loving and stable relationships.

To Harvey and her right-wing ilk, gay = gay sex.

That is a problem, but lucky for us as the country moves closer and closer towards marriage equality, the arguments of the opposing side are going to get nuttier and nuttier and expose them for exactly what they are: the last gasps of a dying movement.

It’s time to pull the plug.
