OK house tells gays their house isn't OK

by Jeremy Hooper

   By a vote of 60-33, Oklahoma Rep. Sally Kern's bill forcing local libraries to segregate gay-themed children's books (Heather Has Two Mommies, King and King, etc.) to special adults-only shelves or risk losing state funding, has received approval in the House.

The almost unbelievable measure now heads to the Senate, where those in the know say it could very well fail. If that happens, we hear Kern will simply try to have every children's book that doesn't have a gay theme placed on an actual moral pedestal, which will be positioned higher than the one on which the homo-themed tomes reside.
