OK State Rep. Sally Kern Files 3 BillsTo Destroy LGBT Lives. Why Aren’t We Trying To Destroy Sally Kern?

Oklahoma

 

Republican Oklahoma State Rep. Sally Kern, the who in 2008 said that the “homosexual agenda” posed a greater threat to the nation than terrorism, filed three anti-gay measures with the state legislature this week that would literally destroy the rights of LGBT Oklahoman s

“No employee of this state and no employee of any local governmental entity shall officially recognize, grant or enforce a same-sex marriage license and continue to receive a salary, pension or other employee benefit at the expense of taxpayers of this state,” reads House Bill 1599 titled the “Preservation and Sovereignty of Marriage Act.”

Kern’s second anti-LGBT bill, titled the “Freedom to Obtain Conversion Therapy Act,” allows parents to pursue discredited reparative or conversion therapy to attempt to change a gay child’s sexual orientation without interference from the state.

“The people of this state have the right to seek and obtain counseling or conversion therapy from a mental health provider in order to control or end any unwanted sexual attraction, and no state agency shall infringe upon that right,” reads House Bill 1598. “Parents may obtain such counseling or therapy for their children under eighteen (18) years of age without interference by the state.”

The third bill would allow business to refuse service to anyone lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender on religious grounds. It is similar to the bill vetoed in Arizona by former Governor Jan Brewer.

.“”Studies show that no society that has totally embraced homosexuality has lasted more than, you know, a few decades. So it’s the death knell of this country. I honestly think it’s the biggest threat our nation has, even more so than terrorism or Islam – which I think is a big threat, okay? ‘Cause what’s happening now is they are going after, in schools, two-year olds…And this stuff is deadly, and it’s spreading, and it will destroy our young people, it will destroy this nation” – Sally Kern – 2008

The question is why do we let this continue.  Surely with all the money in the LGBT community something could be dug up on Kerns.  There is no way that such an evil despicable person does not have some serious dirt hiding somewhere that can be used against her.

Why do we allow this to happen? Has playing noce really helped us? Obviously that old “let them keep talking they’ll hang themselves” tactic we’ve been using for decades just  isn’t working.

Maybe it is time to get our hands dirty,

Because truthfully if anything will “destroy the nation” it will be right wing extremist fascist like Sally Kern.
