Audio: Terrorism = bad, gays = worse

by Jeremy Hooper

Remember on Friday when we showed you that good Christian man who was suggesting that gays and lesbians should be encouraged to engage in activities that would render them extinct? Yea, well, the Victory Fund has uncovered yet another instance of a "pro-family" person letting her true thoughts fly while thinking she was speaking only to an audience of her homo-hostile peers. And what makes this instance even worse than the other one? Well, it's from a full-fledged state lawmaker!

 Good As You Images Kern-With-Flags-1Here is Oklahoma State Rep. Sally Kern (who was previously in the news for seeking a ban/restriction on children's books that encourage gay acceptance) letting her disturbing flag disturbingly fly:

But remember, everyone: She did say she's "not anti" and she's "not gay bashing." So all's forgiven, right?

Oh wait, what's that? No, that line of logic is just the typical verbal salve that our biggest foes use to justify the discriminatory, hateful rhetoric they disseminate? It's simply meant to make them feel better about themselves? The justification is completely hollow?

Oh. Well in that case: Maybe we should all contact Ms. Kern and ask her what sort of superiority complex gives her the right to demean our lives and loves in such odious ways. You can do that at either sallykern@okhouse.gov, or this phone number: 405-557-7348.

Regarding the Oklahoma audio… [Victory Fund]

**UPDATE2: Kern: Eschews apology, manages to further offend [G-A-Y]

Your thoughts

Oh wow, did you see Ellen talking about this yesterday! This video has really gotten around fast!

I went back to the "I'm listening" webpage, and now there's an open letter from Victory Fund to Sally Kern. I think everyone should sign it: http://www.victoryfund.org/files/listening.html

I IMPLORE ALL OF YOU TO CONTACT THE HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE AND OR THE WAYS AND MEANS COMMITTEE TO OUST REPRESENTATIVE KERNS. SHE NEEDS TO BE STOPPED IMMEDIATELY.
I HAVE SENT THE FBI INFORMATION ABOUT HER AND OTHER RIGHT WING GROUPS. THEY ARE NOW INFORMED AND WILL CONDUCT A CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION ON HER.
