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.

You know, I've seen countless "no texting while driving campaigns" and I agree with the premise. I think it is dangerous not to have your eyes on the road. That's how accidents happen. With that said, don't car manufacturers think it's counterintuitive to include touchscreens instead of knobs or dials in new cars these days? You have to take your eyes off the road to adjust anything. I think it's hazardous, especially if you happen to be driving in inclement weather.

After Redditor TheTenthDimension asked the online community, "What's your best example of 'Whoever designed this must not use their own product'?" people shared some suggestions.

If only all the things we excelled at were also the very things we loved to do most. But sadly, that is not the way it goes.

Instead, some horrible force of the universe made you way better at, say, sewing the holes of pants than playing guitar. The universe can be a spiteful, fickle jerk.

In a perfect world, family has your back harder than anyone else.

In the real world, it can sometimes be your family that cuts deeper than anyone else. Intentional or not, the people closest to you have the ability to seriously super suck.

No, you're not the only one who has dealt with a mom who just, for the life of themselves, can't NOT be critical. Or a dad who just always seemed chronically underwhelmed by you.

Society is an odd conundrum when you attempt to wrap your head around it. This phenomena typically occurs whenever you witness a new trend or share experience and everyone seems to go along with it. Only much later, when you think about it with a bit of critical thinking, do you notice something might be off.

Going against society can be strained, difficult, like pulling back a sticker that's been on way too long, however sometimes it's necessary to get rid of what we probably shouldn't be so welcoming of.
