    Default Homosexuality Bigger Threat Than Terrorism

    OKLAHOMA CITY A YouTube audio clip of a state lawmaker's screed against homosexuality, which she called a bigger threat than terrorism, has outraged gay activists and brought death threats rolling in.

    http://jmbzine.com/2008/03/07/rep-sa...-the-internet/



    "The homosexual agenda is destroying this nation, OK, it's just a fact," Rep. Sally Kern said recently to a gathering of fellow Republicans outside the Capitol.

    "Studies show no society that has totally embraced homosexuality has lasted, you know, more than a few decades. So it's the death knell in this country.

    "I honestly think it's the biggest threat that our nation has, even more so than terrorism or Islam, which I think is a big threat," she said.

    The former school teacher has been a magnet for coast-to-coast condemnation, including a jab from comedian Ellen Degeneres, ever since someone posted her comments on the Internet last week. State police said they are investigating death threats against her.

    Back home in the Bible Belt, though, the response has been mixed. Kern has gotten support from her fellow Republicans.

    "I would submit to you that the vast majority of the folks in our caucus, particularly those who consider themselves conservative, stand with and support Sally," said state Rep. Randy Terrill.

    Democratic Gov. Brad Henry, however, said Kern's views are not representative of most Oklahomans. He said politicians should "think before you speak."

    "To have equated the gay community with terrorism ... and to have called us the biggest threat to America is to dehumanize gay people in the worst possible way," Denis Dison, spokesman for the Washington-based Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund, said Friday.

    That group's leaders fear remarks such as Kern's coming from an elected official could lead to violence against gays.

    Kern, who is finishing her second term, has tried unsuccessfully to pass bills to rid libraries' children's sections of books that have homosexual themes. She told the group that school children are being indoctrinated by gay activists.

    "We're not teaching facts and knowledge any more, folks," she said. "We're teaching indoctrination, OK, and they are going after our young children, as young as 2 years of age, to try to teach them a homosexual lifestyle is an acceptable lifestyle."

    In the same speech, she said gays are "infiltrating city councils" across the country.

    "It spreads, OK, and this stuff is deadly and it's spreading and it will destroy our young people," she said. "It will destroy this nation."

    Kern said she made these comments on about four different occasions to small groups of Republicans, and she thinks the recording was made at one of these meetings in January. Various recordings of it have generated more than a million hits on YouTube.

    Kern's office received more than 23,000 e-mails in less than a week, mostly condemning her views, and thousands more to her home computer, many of them "vulgar, vile and profane," she said.

    Kern said she has no regrets for her statements and denies she was gay-bashing. Her Christian faith teachers her to be loving to individuals, but not their lifestyle, she said.

    Some people, including Degeneres, did not take her remarks that way.

    "Hi, it's Ellen Degeneres, the gay one," the comedian said when she left a message in a call to Kern's office during her TV show this week.

    Degeneres said she wanted to talk to Kern about some "misinformation."

    "I'm trying to figure out which society has disappeared that I didn't know of," she said.

    Kern said she had no interest in talking to the entertainer. "That would be like throwing myself into the lion's den and I'm not going to do that," she said Thursday.

    Kern, the wife of a Baptist minister, said "everything is being played out of proportion."

    Most of Kern's colleagues have steered clear of commenting on her statements, but some say the state's image is taking a beating.

    "I think it is a shame those type of things tend to show that we are a people who seem not willing to look at the big picture of the world and recognize there are other people out there with other religions, other viewpoints. I think we are somewhat intolerant of that," said Rep. David Braddock, a Democrat.

    Last summer, more than two dozen Oklahoma House members refused complimentary copies of the Quran from an ethnic advisory council, offending Muslims. Republican Rex Duncan led the boycott, condemning Islam as a religion and saying most Oklahomans do not endorse "the idea of killing innocent women and children in the name of ideology."

    Like Kern, Duncan stood by his comments.

    Rabbi Russell Fox of Oklahoma City's Emanuel Synagogue said Oklahoma is becoming more exposed to different religions and cultures and some citizens and leaders "are having a hard time making an adjustment."

    Fox said he did not believe Oklahomans were necessarily less tolerant than people in other areas of the country, "but I think we have a political culture that plays upon and uses intolerance in some very unhealthy ways."

    "It's demagoguery, that's the old word for it," he said
    "Watch what people are cynical about, and one can often discover what they lack. -- Gen. George S. Patton

    What a stupid bigoted cunt.
    "Suck a fat one, faggot."
    -MikeL, showing off that sharp wit of his.

    "You may recognize some of these chemicals. Let's start with cyanide...The one the Aum Shinrikyo cult attempted to use to commit mass murder in a Tokyo subway in May 1995...The same cyanide produced routinely--1.4 million tons per year--for use in the production of plastics, adhesives, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and so on. It seems that those who put small amounts of cyanide in subways are terrorists. But those who produce it in mass quantities and contaminate broad reaches of soil, water, and air, killing countless living beings, are not terrorists, but rather capitalists, and are counted among the finest and most powerful people on the planet."

    -Derrick Jensen, "What We Leave Behind"

    "You know what's weird to me is Christians who are against the death penalty. After all, if it weren't for the death penalty, we wouldn't celebrate Easter!"

    "Kern said she had no interest in talking to the entertainer. "That would be like throwing myself into the lion's den and I'm not going to do that," she said Thursday."

    Right, because in the Bible, Daniel got thrown into the lion's den and was saved by God because of his righteousness. You don't want to take the same chance, obviously.

    We don't need fucking Islam to destroy us, we'll destroy ourselves with our own deep seeded divisions, that are getting deeper by the day. U.S.A. or Roman Empire, whats the difference?

    Islam isn't destroying anything. Christianity isn't destroying anything. Judiasm isn't destroying anything. The radical sects of these religions are destroying humanity.

    Just like those fucking pathetic racist clowns who circulated that chain letter about Barack Obama turning his back to the American flag. Give me a break.

    Sometimes I just wonder if people ever stop and think anymore. Logic anyone?

    I stoped and thought for while after hearing Obama's pastor and friend of 20 years spew his vile and racist hatred. Made me think I want Hillary to kick Obama's skinny little ass on her way to the White House!

    Let's see...there's the housing issue, the element of untoward violence in schools (not to mention illiteracy and the plight of our schools along with it's teachers), the cost of living, employment, the surrender of civil rights, the economy in general, racism, sexism, the environment, the total dissolution of the concepts of civility, compassion and dignity, war, terrorism...yup, I guess a few fags should be at the top of the list of true dangers afflicting the world, immediately followed by the biggest issue facing the planet it's uncompromising totality:

    The concept of complete and utter IGNORANCE.
