The Two Goofs of Sally Kern

Sally Kern is a state legislator from Oklahoma.   She is also the wife of a Baptist minister. sally-kern.jpg

Kern first gained national notoriety back in March  when her anti-homosexual rant  to a group of 50 Republican constituents  ended up on YouTube.   Here are some highlights:

“Studies show, no society that has totally embraced homosexuality has lasted for more than, you know, a few decades…”

“I honestly think it’s the biggest threat our nation has, even more so than terrorism or Islam…”

“They are going after our young children, as young as two years of age, to try to teach them that the homosexual lifestyle is an acceptable lifestyle…”

“One of my colleagues said, ‘We don’t have a gay problem in our community’…well, you know, that is so dumb. If you have cancer in your little toe, do you just say that I’m going to forget about it since the rest of you is fine? It spreads! This stuff is deadly and it is spreading. It will destroy our young people and it will destroy this nation.”

“The homosexual agenda is destroying this nation…. Not everybody’s lifestyle is equal, just like not everybody’s religion is equal and according to God’s word, it is not the right lifestyle.”

That was Goof #1, which took weeks to die down.   Now, Sally’s back in the news again.

Last Wednesday, Kern was stopped by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol trying to enter the state capitol building  with a loaded handgun in her bag.  She said she forgot to take the .380 caliber semi-automatic out of her purse after she stopped to talk to a colleague. “It was an honest mistake from being out of my routine, you know,” she said.


She tells one whopper after another and doesn’t bat an eyelash!

Really, what kind of lady doesn’t check her purse before leaving the house.   Yep, house keys, car keys, sunglasses, cell phone, makeup bag, breath mints, loaded semi-automatic….uh, make sure the safety’s on…ok, I’m off! beretta.jpg
