Sally Kern: No difference between gays and terrorists

Sally Kern: No difference between gays and terrorists No apology is coming from shamed Oklahoma House representative Sally Kern (Rep.) for comparing gay people to terrorists. The latest scandal could hurt the chances of the Republican presidential candidate (most likely John McCain) to the White House in this year's elections, after outraged gay and lesbian communities country-wide received no apology from Republican Oklahoma House representative Sally Kern for her comments. Sally Kern was speaking to a group of Republicans who had invited her to express her views about homosexuality and a leaked video was made public by the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund (watch the video below).

 During her speech, Sally Kern had no remorse comparing the gays and lesbians to terrorists, telling fellow Republicans that the "gay agenda" is destroying the country and that "according to God's word, that is not the right kind of lifestyle. It has deadly consequences for those people involved in it." According to Kern, homosexuals trying to "indoctrinate" children as young as 2-years-old through tolerance education and gay-straight alliances, adding that homosexuality will destroy this nation.

 Outrage it sparked, but no apology will be coming out of Sally Kern. "What I'm saying, I believe in. There are indisputable facts that show its a deadly lifestyle. What is wrong with me, as an American, exercising my free speech rights?" the Republican representative was quoted saying later. "I do not have to agree with it [the homosexual movement] and speaking against it is not hate speech," she continued.

 The fact that the scandalous speech was held by a Republican in front of other Republicans will indeed turn into a big blow to any Republican presidential candidate. The online odds maker BodogLife is already lengthening the odds on John McCain to become the next U.S. President, down to 7/4.
