Right wing and Christian activist Linda Harvey announced on her radio show that the best way to stop the spread of HIV is to close down gay bars.
Harvey, who is a regular columnist for World Net Daily and hosts a local show in Columbus, Ohio, showed no signs of accepting any sort of same-sex interaction.
“So what could we do to make a serious dent in the HIV and syphilis disease track?” she asked. “One obvious approach is to stop promoting homosexual behavior to kids and falsely calling it an identity like race. We could also close down homosexual bars and bathhouses, that would be a start. God never created people to engage in these unnatural acts. ”
This isn’t the first time that Harvey has been critical of the gay community. The religious host also slammed the “It Gets Better” project as “evil“, and warned companies against hiring gay men and lesbians.
