Oklahoma House Representative Sally Kern is facing death threats due to the following statement:
“The very fact that I’m talking to you like this here today puts me in jeopardy,” she said in her speech. “So, so be it. I’m not anti, I’m not gay bashing, but according to God’s Word, that is not the right kind of lifestyle. It has deadly consequences for those people involved in it. They have more suicides … there’s more illness. Their life spans are shorter.”
“It’s not a lifestyle that is good for this nation. As a matter of fact, 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 for 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 has received 30,000 emails! Thirty thousand!!!!!!! Most of them were threatening…..many death threats.
So………this is what tolerance is all about?
I can tell that Ms Kern is tolerant in the true sense of the word.
Read what she has to say:
“I’m not going to apologize for exercising my First Amendment right,” she told The Oklahoman.
She was equally supportive of the rights of homosexual activists to protest her remarks at the state capital. “That’s great they came to the Capitol. This is a free country. They’re exercising their First Amendment right,” Kern told AP.
Where is the true tolerance?
