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.



Her piece says things such as:

"This offense, this corruption is deliberate as the procession toward normalizing decadence marches on."

And:

"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.

Really.

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.






Others were less aghast at her inflammatory remarks and knew exactly what to say.







And you can always count on Twitter to find the funniest angles.






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.

Really.

Let me be real for a second.

Every time I listen to Bjork's "Unravel," my heart breaks a bit.

Have you ever listened to it?

It's on Homogenic, her third studio album, and it's incredible, passionate, smartly produced and a great showcase for her stupendous voice.

That song? An emotional rollercoaster, for sure.

There's tons of great music out there, though, and even more sad and gorgeous songs to discover.

Unfortunately, a friendship could really end at any point in life.

Friends grow apart, but also, sometimes, it's just necessary to say goodbye to your relationship with a friend.

Maybe they aren't the right type of friend for you anymore, or maybe something has happened in their lives to make them self-destructive and toxic.

The reasons are many, and they are all sad.

Certain personalities show up at almost every party like clockwork.

There's always that person who get's too drunk, someone awkwardly standing in the corner nursing a drink, the person who's not having a good time no matter what and the person babysitting the crowd they came with.

When there's alcohol—or any other substances—and the pressure of a social situation, all sorts of quirks will come out. We wanted to know what people thought their country would act like if they were a person attending a party.
