Sally Kern Hasn’t Changed A Bit

Oklahoma State Rep. Sally KernOklahoma State Representative and LaBarbera Award winner Sally Kern still thinks that the homosexuals pose the greatest threat to America. She said so again last Thursday during a debate with her opponent Ron Marlett:

When asked about the biggest threat facing the United States, Marlett said it was dependence on foreign oil. Kern said it was homosexuality.

“While terrorism has killed more than 3,000 people, in the continental United States in the last 15 years, homosexual behavior has killed more than 100,000,” she said. “It’s a danger to life. It is a danger to health.”

“To compare certain members of our community to a cancer that might need to be removed is chilling to me,” Marlett said.

“Our county is united pretty much against terrorism, but homosexuality is being promoted in schools and by the government,” said Kern.

Kern first gained national ridicule last March when she said that homosexuality was “the biggest threat our nation has, even more so than terrorism or Islam.” At least she’s consistent.

Reading Kern’s ant-gay statements remind me of the stuff I read when Iran’s ayatolla’s spew their anti-gay diatribes.

Perhaps Sally Kern should move to Iran, where there are no homosexuals, and run for elected office there. Oh, wait. She’s a woman, I don’t think they would allow her “kind”, I.E. female, to run for public office. Lest she run the risk of being stoned to death.

I can only hope that she is defeated. Please, keep us posted.

Wow…

I’d feel empowered by her comments if they weren’t so dangerously ignorant. I mean, it’s not every day someone tells you that wanting to share health insurance with your same-sex partner is more of a threat than wanting to blow up an office building. In all seriousness, for an elected official to say something that stupid is profoundly disturbing.

Even more disturbing is the thought of her constituents that voted her into this office!!! What does THAT say about THEM!
