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
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.
