Witch Linda Harvey’s empty threat to sue Truth Wins Out and their response

This was Harvey’s tweet in response to an article posted by Wayne Besen, the executive director of Truth Wins Out where he points out the witch supporting the ‘Kill The Gays Bill‘ of Uganda. I should mention, she is the President of Mission America. Do we see a pattern here?

Here is her exact words and deduce yourself whether she is advocating this shameful bill or not. Its worth noting that she is famous for her anti-gay views and I have recently posted about her urging parents not to let LGBT medical practitioners treat their kids as according to her, that might turn the kids gay.  You can read the details in this post.

“The fact they are re-criminalizing homosexuality is (a) their business, (b) it is patronizing for white Westerners to be telling these folks — they are seeing George Soros funded gay groups going into Uganda. They are all through the schools, lots of promotion to kids. Poor kids, poor kids are being offered money and favors and gifts to have sex. That’s exploitation. That’s sex trafficking. And it’s being done mostly homosexually. By Western homosexuals coming in and trying to get involved in Uganda.”

In response to the tweety threat, ‘We’d Be Delighted to Expose Her Bigotry in a Court of Law and the Court of Public Opinion,’ writes Wayne Besen   “Bring it on. We hope that such a case would be aired on television so we can expose Harvey’s vile words in a court of law and in the court of public opinion. It’s bizarre that Harvey is upset because we quoted her verbatim, which tells me that on some level she is ashamed of her own hateful rhetoric.”

Notable here, that although she didn’t say in so many words that she wants all gays killed, she did admit at a meeting in Michigan last year that she and Scott Lively worked on that anti-gay bill. We all know what the bill proposes to do if it gets approved. Put gays in prison or murdered by the state for “aggravated homosexuality” which means gays having sex on more than one occasion.

To me, that means she favours killing gays through capital punishment.

This Apple is not for this Adam

My moon sign being Libra, it’s not always easy for me to make up my mind. The mental scale tips back and forth forever before it comes to a balanced decision.

I was going through this usual process while trying to decide, when I upgrade my HTC phone, which one to get. The choice was obviously between iphone and Blackberry.

Blackberry is more sophisticated and business whereas iphone is more hip and funky. So needless to say my scale was tipping towards iphone.

And all of a sudden the decision making became so easy.

Apple approved an anti-gay app from Exodus International, which is an organisation which believes and preaches that homosexuality is reversible and can be cured through therapy.

I won’t ask why Apple did this? Why it didn’t think there was anything wrong with this app. Why it didn’t strike their brilliant mega minds that iphone being mostly a younger generation’s gadget, would play havoc in the minds of young gay or questioning youths or it might turn into a contributing factor to youth/teenage suicide among the LGBT community?

Coz if I ask, I will have to listen to their answers and they would be just a bunch of well rehearsed, politically correct bull shit. I can almost hear one of their justification already before they have even published it. ” We cater to the LGBT population and have Grindr. So its only fair we have a balance and cater to others too.” I will spare myself from that ordeal.

So instead, I will just go with Blackberry. And my list of boycotting companies are growing.

Walmart is on the top. I stopped shopping there when I first heard that Walmart is selling a book in the Kids section which talks about how being gay is a medical condition and can be cured.

And now http://www.lgbtqnation.com/2011/03/walmart-the-g-word-and-internet-activism/ this.

So thank you Apple, for making my life a little bit easier in the decision making part. Because this apple is rotten for sure.

Update:

Apple has taken the App down and its no longer available to consumers after a petition by Truth Wins Out was signed by over 146000 people.

Thank you Change.org  for creating the platform and to Truth Wins Out for taking the initiative.

But the point is, why did we have to sign a petition, two organizations had to go to this length to get the app out of the store? It means Apple doesn’t think there was anything wrong with the App, but removed it under pressure.

So are they really pro LGBT or are does their balance tilt whichever way the business is?
