Mission America and AFA-Michigan: Don’t Hire Gays!

Linda Harvey, President and Founder of Mission:America recently interviewed Gary Glenn, President of the Michigan chapter of the SPLC Hatewatch Group AFA.  As I suspected, Harvey soon turned Glenn to her favorite topic, homosexuality.  However, today was a special twist.  Why companies should discriminate against hiring LGBT‘s in their workforce.  Essentially, they feed off each other trying to out do one another with their factless slandering comments which encourage the listener to believe them as if they’re re reading from the Gospel itself. See the quoted excerpt below.


Glenn: Herman Miller, which is a major employer and corporation in Holland [Michigan], a furniture company, supported this so-called gay rights ordinance on the claim that it allowed them to attract the best and brightest.

Harvey: Here we go, yeah we heard that before.

Glenn: What ridiculous folly to suggest that only those individuals who engage in homosexual behavior given all of its severe medical consequences constitute the best and the brightest. It’s not really bright to engage in behavior that puts you at dramatically higher risk of mental illness and substance abuse and AIDS and cancer and hepatitis, and according to various sources, premature death. So to suggest that engaging in that type of behavior defines someone as the best and brightest, which seems to be the line coming out of corporate America, is just ridiculous.

Harvey: You’re right. And higher rates of domestic violence and unstable relationships. I would not think of a homosexual person as a good employment risk, I just wouldn’t.

Linda and her founded organization have an entire webpage article with 9 points devoted to anti-gay assumptions and factless statements.  Even when they do state fact, it’s quite slanted, such as: There’s no biological cause for homosexual behavior.  She fails to mention there’s also no biological cause for heterosexual behavior.  She continues to go on and on, point after point, quoting such reputable sources on SPLC’s hatewatch as Exodus International and NARTH.

You can listen to all 24 minutes of misinformation and bigotry here.
