Myopic, thy name is Kern

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 2-169Speaking last night at the Cleveland County Republican Club in Norman, Oklahoma, notorious Sooner State representative Sally Kern reportedly reinforced her self-assessment that she's a "cultural warrior for Judeo-Christian values." The AP quotes Kern as saying:

"I am not saying everyone has to be Christian; this is not a homogenous nation," ... "What you have to be is someone who believes in a Judeo-Christian ethic, in other words, in knowing there's a right and wrong.

"Not all lifestyles are equal; not all religions are equal," ..."Was I saying all people are not equal? Heavens no; we were all created equal."

No, no, Sally -- of course you're not saying people are unequal. You're just saying that if you love in a certain way or have views about Godly matters that don't jibe with a "Judeo-Christian ethic, then those certain parts of you are not equal. And in fact, you will even say that some people's love and sexual truths are actually "worse than terrorism." That's SO MUCH better, Sal!

[::Writer rolls eyes dramatically, unapologetically intending to send the signal that he thinks Sally's views on faith's role in both politics and society at large are in no way equal to the views of those who TRULY understand fairness, American freedom, and church-state separation::]

Kern is currently on the stump in hopes of being elected to a third term in elected government office. But if unsuccessful, it should comfort her to know that she can recycle her same speeches for a subsequent bid for Souther Baptist president.

Your thoughts

Citizens like Ms. Kern are the reason that The Founders of the USofA set up a government of checks and balances: Judiciary, Executive and Legislative. AND went further to recognize and mandate the separation of church and state.

All of this was embodied in a Democratic Republic government, not a democracy as most mistakenly call our form of governing. The main purpose of a DR is to protect the rights of minorities who will otherwise suffer at the hands of a mob rule democracy (think legal lynching).

Sally-dear raises the specter of Fascism arriving in the US, "wrapped in a flag, carrying a cross!"

""What you have to be is someone who believes in a Judeo-Christian ethic, in other words, in knowing there's a right and wrong."

Can you say "Ted Haggard", "Benny Hinn", "George W Bush", "Jim Bakker" and "Brent Rinehart"?

Most people I've known with a so-called "Judeo-Christian ethic" most certainly don't know the difference between right and right. For that matter, I'd say they're all borderline retarded.

"most certainly don't know the difference between right and wrong", I meant to say.

Damn coffee, hurry up and get me awake! LOL

Was she this crazy before her rant or did she decide to just let her crazy show now that it's out there in the open?

Christopher, I think she is of the opinion that explaining her comments makes her seem less batshit crazy. I doubt that it is working.

She got her tit caught in a wringer by using incendiary phrases and now feels the need to make up lame excuses for them . . . sounds pretty desperate to me.
