Apparently, gays can’t celebrate Thanksgiving because they’re ‘naturally ungrateful’

The founder of a “pro-family” organisation in the US has said that gay people can’t celebrate Thanksgiving because “ingratitude forms a core ingredient of the ‘LGBT’ community”.

Linda Harvey, who founded Christian group Mission: America, wrote a piece for Christian website LifeSiteNews, in which she insisted that LGBT+ people are naturally ungracious.

“It’s that time of year when being grateful rises to the top of our priority list – for most of us, that is. Sadly, some people are simply ungrateful, and proudly so,” Harvey said, according to the Hill Reporter.

In the now-deleted article, Harvey went on: “[I]ngratitude forms a core ingredient of the ‘LGBT’ community, the pro-abortion movement, and the left in general.”

“The internet is replete with homosexual/transgender hostility toward parents, those who lovingly provided a home, allowance, support, and often college tuition, not to mention the child’s genetic heritage — and receive derision and scorn in return from sexually sinful or gender-deviant children,” Harvey said.

In her Thanksgiving piece, she added that LGBT+ people being honest and open about being gay is a form of ingratitude in itself.

“The tears of these parents could fill a cathedral,” she said.

“Among homosexuals and the gender-rebellious, parents and genetic heritage are often held in contempt. Heterosexuals are nicknamed ‘breeders’ among these enlightened sexual rebels. It doesn’t end there. In a bigger sense, there’s a ready dismissiveness of American exceptionalism, Western civilisation, and the peaceful affluence — a rarity in history — we enjoy here in the USA,” Harvey added.

Mission: America is designated an active anti-LGBT+ group by the Southern Poverty Law Centre, which monitors hate groups in the US. According to its website, Mission: America offers Christian commentary on “the culture”.

Though the article has been deleted from LifeSiteNews, it now appears on the American Family Association’s website. The Southern Poverty Law Centre also designates that organisation as a hate group.

Harvey has written two books, one of which is called Maybe He’s Not Gay: Another View on Homosexuality.
