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.

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.
