Life might be dull without the exquisite eloquence of Linda Harvey. Yes, Ms. Harvey is a bit nutty but she knows how to hit one out of the park. For example, consider Tuesday’s post titled: Let’s stop U.S. export of homosexual agenda. Oh, indeed. The quick-witted Harvey explains further:

Should U.S. embassies around the globe fly rainbow flags to celebrate homosexuality? Or hold receptions to honor “pride”?

Of course not. In fact, it’s such an in-your-face insult, it reminds me of something former President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton might devise.

The nutters seem to really love the word “celebrate” when it seems relevant to anti-LGBT opprobrium.

What Pride says is that the United States, like most of the industrialized world, is an advanced society. We have progressed past superstition masquerading as religious freedom. Those flags that Ms. Harvey does not approve of say something important about us as a nation.

I am reasonably sure that Saudis. the Taliban and Iranians would not approve of those flags. They have backward societies when it comes to sexuality. Their public policies are based upon religion. Ms. Harvey wants us to be just like the Taliban. Yet she thinks that she is a patriot.

A true patriot is some brave gay kid serving in the military and stationed in Afghanistan where he could get his ass shot off. He is a patriot and he is my hero.

What I would like to know from Ms. Harvey is when does Christian Supremacy cease in order to appreciate the cherished American ethos? When, in fact, does she stop judging people based on their sexuality? When does this annoying creature stop spying on our bedrooms? When does she accept the fact that we are not a theocracy? When does she mind her own goddamned business?

Harvey’s diatribe continues, in part:

In fact, it was under their leadership [Clinton’s and Obama’s] that numerous openly homosexual ambassadors were appointed and “gay” behavior began to be enthusiastically not just embraced but championed through America’s diplomatic corps, even in nations that still have laws against such immorality.

And it’s still going on. Why doesn’t Trump put a stop to this nonsense?

Now Ms. Cashew has gone from celebrated to embraced and then championed. Surely she realizes that even the anti-LGBT Trump appointed a gay ambassador to Germany. I happen to think that Richard Grenell is a schmuck and an incompetent ambassador but he is gay.

Harvey works herself into a frenzy with:

On Tuesday, July 31, 2018, a reception was held at the U.S. embassy in Jamaica to honor “pride” month.

The formal invitation bears the U.S. embassy seal and reads: “The Embassy of the United States of America Charges D’Affaires Eric Khant requests the pleasure of your company at the PRIDE JA Opening Reception 2018 on Tuesday, July 31, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.”

Apparently SEAL Team 6 is forcing Jamaicans to attend the reception. Seriously, if anyone is offended then they do not have to RSVP in the affirmative. American values embarrass Ms. Harvey. That is her problem.

Harvey’s tirade continues quite verbosely. She even claims that LGBT people disgrace our nation. It concludes with:

Our Creator must be terribly sad at America’s faithlessness. The precious gift of America must not be squandered. We serve as a beacon of freedom and true human rights to the whole world, and as a source of powerful Christian witnessing and mission support.

Let’s get our heads straight and our policies appropriate as we deal responsibly with the sin of homosexuality.

That “beacon of freedom” extends only to people that Ms. Harvey approves of. As for the last paragraph: Has this witch ever read the Constitution? Our policies are not supposed to recognize even the existence of religion. Some people think that it is a sin to eat pork. Others think that seeing a psychiatrist is a grave sin. Still others believe that the consumption of beef is the worst sin that one can commit.

While it is true that a majority of our country is Christian, we were established as a secular society so that a Jew or Muslim would have equal standing before the law. Harvey wants us to conform to literalist and fundamentalist Christian Supremacy and that goes against everything that America stands for. A vast majority of Americans are quite saner than Harvey.

Just to put a cherry on top of a mound of bullshit, Ms. Harvey is soliciting contributions for her little hate group as a federally tax-exempt entity. I think that she is lying. I have tried every possible combination including multiple address fragments, variations on the name and the term Harvey as the In Care Of. Nothing that I have tried produces a result to even hint that Mission America is a 501(c)3. Earlier today I asked a friend to send an email asking for the organization’s EIN (entity Identification number). No reply.
