Oklahoma House Rep. Sally Kern stands by the statements she made in an audio clip posted online last week by the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund. Supposedly, as she states in the beginning, she isn't "anti or gay-bashing," then she launches into a lengthy anti-gay tirade. The oddest thing, being that she is college-educated (I checked), is this statement: "Studies show that no society that has totally embraced homosexuality has lasted more than a few decades." Um, what? Is she talking about ROME? Sodom and Gomorrah? A few decades? Are there studies on this? Very. Perplexed.
At first I wondered why this woman wasn't being run out of office, but then I remembered that I live in a state that elected Jim DeMint (R-SC) after his statement that "openly gay individuals and single mothers should not teach in public," among other things.
Watch the video here and tell them that you're listening too.
