It's 2018 folks.
Yet somehow, we still have an evangelical radio host making homophobic comments comparing homosexuality to disease.
The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade telecast this year included a performance from the Broadway musical The Prom, which ended with a same-sex kiss.
You can see the kiss at the end of the performance below:YouTube

Linda Harvey, an Evangelical Christian fundamentalist and radio host, wrote an opinion piece about the performance.
She complained that "the incessant homosexual agenda was thrust into America’s face" during the Thanksgiving Day pa… https://t.co/qrhW8GjpCp— PinkNews (@PinkNews)1542997810.0
Her piece says things such as:
"This offense, this corruption is deliberate as the procession toward normalizing decadence marches on."
"This agenda is like an airborne infection that's suddenly everywhere."
This is in response to a performance from The Prom, a musical about a student who wants to take her girlfriend to the prom, but a PTA would rather cancel the event than let her. Despite decades of Broadway shows featuring heterosexual relationships and even heterosexual sex as the centerpoint, one musical about a lesbian teen's struggle for acceptance is "flaunting" and "pushing the gay agenda" in Evangelical Christians' faces.
Harvey's opinion piece scoffs at the notion there isn't a malicious intent behind the performance. The article incites strong emotion with this kind of rhetoric.
People couldn't believe someone would take the time to write this kind of tripe.

This isn't the first time Harvey has made strange accusations of the supposed "gay agenda".
Back in March at a 'Pro-Life' convention, she tried to claim that God makes people gay as punishment for all the abortions in the world.
And in January, she expressed a desire to 're-horrify' people about homosexuality.
