“gives a platform to homophobia”
Have you noticed that anything the campus LGBT community doesn’t like is hate?

Student paper accuses Harvard Christian group of ‘homophobia’ and ‘hate’ for hosting ex-gay speaker
The editorial board of The Harvard Crimson has accused a campus Christian group of giving “a platform to homophobia, conversion therapy, and hate” after the group invited an ex-gay Christian woman to speak to their organization.
Harvard College Faith & Action, which identifies itself as “a gospel-centered community that welcomes students from all backgrounds,” invited Jackie Hill-Perry to speak at its weekly gathering tonight. On her website, Hill-Perry, a writer and public speaker, states that she was “saved from a lifestyle of homosexual sin and the like” and “has been compelled to share the light of the Gospel truth through poems.”
The editorial board of The Crimson writes that Hill-Perry is a practitioner of “conversion therapy,” a practice the board claims “drive participants to higher rates of depression, mental health problems, and STDs.”
“Though we recognize the organization’s right to host the talk with Hill-Perry,” the board states, “we strongly believe that in doing so HCFA gives a platform to homophobia, conversion therapy, and hate…Hill-Perry’s beliefs represent neither love nor kindness. Her talk extends a harmful narrative targeted at LGBTQ+ students that homosexuality is wrong. In fact, on her website, Hill-Perry claims that she was ‘saved from a lifestyle of homosexual sin’—hardly creating an inclusive environment for LGBTQ+ members of our campus.”
“To say the least, the promotion of this practice is not a productive use of First Amendment rights,” the editorial declares.
