In the past, conservative radio host Linda Harvey has made quite a few outrageous, anti-gay claims: her belief that conversion therapy bans will increase the spread of HIV among youth and that Lady Gaga's anti-bullying foundation is really just a 'demonic perversion' among them.
So who better to write a book for teens looking for compassionate, fact-based answers to their questions about their own sexual orientation or gender identity? In her new book, Maybe He's Not Gay: Another View on Homosexuality, Harvey "helps" these struggling youth focus "on the bright future they can all have, regardless of the turmoil of adolescents, which for some may include same sex attractions or gender confusion."
From the book's description on Amazon:
"I'm gay." As more and more young people announce this is their identity, it's time to take a closer look. It's a profound declaration, a new civil right (they are told) and it's "who you are." But there's a problem. Are we sure this is the truth?
Does this identity bring the promised liberation and the key to a whole new life? Does it lift the burden of secrecy – or begin a different kind of struggle?
One cringes at the thought of any level-headed parent giving this book to their son or daughter…
