More on Sally Kern

March 16, 2008

It seems that Ellen Degeneres has learned about Oklahoma Representative Sally Kern’s homophobic tirade (from this blog, no doubt)…and she made a phone call.

And…get this…Kern has a son who is gay …and she and her Baptist preacher hubby have dis-owned him. And removed him from her web page. How is that for practicing Christian love?

Now various blogs and papers in Oklahoma have stories about this, some of which quote Jesse as denying to be sexual in anyway, and choosing to be celibate (can you not be celibate and still be gay?), instead being metaphysical (? OK, you got me there). Anyway, gay or not, he does have a record of being busted years ago in a way that makes me think of Larry Craig. Like a comment I read elsewhere said, I am sure his mother has made his life miserable, and she didn’t help him one bit by spreading her hatred around. Jesse, you can be whatever you are and it doesn’t bother me, just be careful spreading that metaphysicality around, especially indoctrinating the two year olds. And please, avoid your mother. You need better karma.

Evangelicals Changing Their Stripes

March 12, 2008

I made a statement a couple of days ago: Now if only they will recognize the truth about poverty, gays and lesbians, war and such. For this I am not holding my breath.

Well, even if I were holding my breath, I might take in a fresh breath of air. I read this today: New Evangelical Leaders Said Less Interested In Battling Gay Rights.

James Dobson is wondering “Who will defend the unborn child in the years to come? Who will plead for the Terri Schiavos of the world? Who’s going to fight for the institution of marriage, which is on the ropes today.”

Hey Dobson…Why don’t you fight for the born children who are living in poverty and without healthcare and education? You should have stayed out of Terry Shiavo’s business. And gays are the ones fighting for the institution of marriage, which you are trying to horde for the heteros.

People like Dobson and Sally Kern of Oklahoma are quickly learning that they are mis-representing the bible, and mis-stating the truth, mis-interpreting the will of the American people.

“Christian activists and other observers of the movement say that the next generation of leaders isn’t as interested in polarizing debates and wants to broaden the evangelical agenda beyond divisive issues like abortion and gay marriage.” Those aren’t Dobson’s words, those are out of this article.

Oh, and you can email Sally Kern about this at sallykern@okhouse.gov.
