Do gay employees deserve to be fired for lowering the “moral standards” of employers?
That’s the suggestion made by conservative Christian radio host Linda Harvey, who told listeners of her “Mission: America” radio program on Monday that employers should have the right to keep “open homosexuals or cross-dressers” from “modeling that lifestyle to kids.”
Harvey, who for years has warned Americans about the dangers of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender “lifestyle,” said she believes being gay is a choice, reports Right Wing Watch.
“The fact is that no one needs to be involved in homosexuality,” Harvey said on her radio show. “And all of the good qualities a person may have that might make that person otherwise an excellent employee don’t require a homosexual lifestyle.”
In an email to The Huffington Post, Harvey wrote that since “no one needs to be homosexual, those who choose to be very open and proud about their same-sex desires, which they could overcome if they decided to, may present problems in the workplace for an employer.”
