The FAMiLY Leader’s Chuck Hurley is condemning Wartburg College for hosting a gala week to increase awareness for the LGBT community and inviting Zach Wahls, the 19 year old whose defense of his lesbian mothers has gone viral, to address the event. Speaking to a local NBC affiliate in Iowa, Hurley condemned the school for embracing “harmful” behavior. “Any community that embraces behavior that is ultimately personally harmful and societally harmful is doing a disservice to our civilization,” he said. The Leader — which is headed by Bob Vander Plaats — has previously compared homosexuality to second hand smoke.
