Sally Kern Calls for Anti-Gay 'Great Awakening'

The Oklahoma Gazette reports on the "Clouds Over America" conference of the John Birch Society in Oklahoma, at which gun-toting Oklahoma legislator and homophobe Sally Kern "called for a new 'Great Awakening,' referring to a period of religious revivals from the 18th century considered precursor to the American Revolution."

Kern_2Kern laid out various points of a "homosexual agenda" in which gays would ultimately triumph by convincing the world that homosexuality is a "superior lifestyle."

Said Kern to choruses of "amens": "You know, I've done a lot of reading on this. I wish I could describe to you their behavior. I will not because I would be redder than this suit. It's their behavior that we oppose. The theme of equality and freedom is the approach that the homosexuals are using today — totally perverting the true intention of what our Constitution meant. The homosexuals get it — it's a struggle between our religious freedoms and their right to do what they want to do...The solution is another Great Awakening, folks. We need a spiritual revival, and that will only come if God’s people, especially you pastors, will stand in your pulpits and vocally preach the word of God and thus declare the Lord this sin, and preach it in love, only then does our nation have a chance of overcoming the scourge of AIDS, HIV and the devastating destruction that the homosexual lifestyle is bringing on your children and our grandchildren."

God help us all.

  1. I've just added Sally's name, along with Fred Phelps, to my 'eat shit and die' list.

  2. False history. The idea that the first Great Awakening was some sort of "precursor" to the American Revolution is pure propaganda. Voltaire and Diderot, Deism, anti-clericalism, revolt against the "Divine Right of Kings"--the revolutionary age was secular and rather anti-religious, in fact.


    At long last, we have a full-fledged fascist movement in the US. It's time to stop pretending that we don't. The Sally Kerns of the world shouldn't be mocked or made fun of any longer, because they're dangerous. They need to be politically destroyed.

  3. Someone needs to silence that bitch.

  4. I think Kern is fringe, but I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss the reach xenophobic talk. Remember the McCain-Palin rallies... xenophobic talk just agitates those crazy neocon religious zealots who think liberals and progressives are trying to pervert them and "their America."

    The economy's in terrible shape. Middle America is really hurting. Religious zealotry is up and more political than ever. Our right have already been stripped/denied in many states.

    If CA taught us one thing, it was not to get caught sleeping. The Christian coalition is using our backs as a big step ladder.

  6. "God help us all."

    God, you may have noticed, will not do a damned thing for us that we are not prepared to do for ourselves.

  7. She's read BOOKS? Is reading a book the same thing as getting it from the horses mouth (ie actually finding a gay person and having a civil conversation with them?)

    This person is a zealot and (thank god) pretty extreme for this day and age.

    I can't help but wonder how many people in this church have been forced to stay in the closet because of their (parent's) church's bigoted ideology??!!

  8. She's mentally unstable, for sure.

  10. what a cuntbag!
    has she turned on the tv lately to see what horrible things heterosexuals are doing???
    Prisons are full on heterosexuals?!
    divorce courts are full of heterosexuals?!
    the news is full of heterosexuals doing terrible things?!
    sexual orientation has nothing to do with ALL THAT?!

  11. Kirk and Madsen, folks. It's what the wackos rely on when they talk about the "gay agenda."

    And in fact, that assimilationist agenda finds eerie echoes here every time somebody complains about transgender folks or drag or leather or anything that doesn't work with a white picket fence.

  12. Creepy lady is creepy.

    Some people are just so strange - also sad, demented, horrifying...
    Thank goodness ancient is on that list too !
    Mother Nature ; I could kiss you - if you were just, you know, a guy.

  13. Sportin’ Life is correct.
    It was great men like Founding Father Thomas Paine, who was a deist that inspired our forefathers to sacrifice their lives in the American Revolution. You can find more info here: .
    I am also a deist and Ms Kern will have to put a bullet in my head before I would ever pray to her hateful false god.

  14. What's funny is that the last Great Awakening in the United States called for equality of ALL PEOPLE under the eyes of God regardless of race, gender, class, etc. It was a huge determining factor in the abolitionist movement, the women's suffrage movement, and galvanized a lot of African Americans to believe that they were more than just the cursed "Children of Ham". Ignorant Christians are the best!

  15. One of these days, some LGBT person who has lost a child, home, spouse, pension, and/or job to federal inequality will put a bullet through the heads of people like Sally Kern, Mike Huckabee, Rick Warren, etc,. and others who are obsessed with EXCLUDING our families from U.S. law. ALL of the above horrors have already happened to many due to marriage inequality alone. Why isn't this HATE against our family seen as the VIOLENCE that it really is? Cause and Effect. Laws have consequences. So does hate. THE AGE OF THE SISSY IS OVER. Haters will need to take responsibility for the suffering THEY create. [equality tax revolt]

  16. Don't anyone here dismiss Ms. Kern outright. She might seem passe, but I tell you she has MILLIONS of fans out there. Those people who got all excited about Sarah Palin are the same people who would, and do, listen to Sally Kern--with righteous anger and religious fervor in their hearts. Wing-nut talk radio (Rush, Sean, Laura, Glenn and others) has given her nothing but praise, for Chrissake! I think we all need a reality check. The biggest threat in the minds of these people isn't terrorism, the stock market, losing their jobs, or a natural catastrophe like Hurricane Katrina. No, their biggest fear is that gays and lesbians will be accepted as equal participants in American civil society. They will kill to prevent this from happening.

  17. Take a look at her picture.... Those eyes say "insane brain inside"! She eyes look more crazed than Charles Manson's fer Pete's sake!

  18. Isn't her Brother Gay? Bitch.

  19. It's a filthy, crude job dealing with this trash. It's not fun and requires no imagination or intellect to send these memes packing and disprove these lies. Beat these people back into their trailers...back to their cheap booze, meth and domestic violence.

  20. Some people rant about and vehemently condemn the very thing they are hiding or struggle with. Would be interesting to delve into her past or be a fly on her wall in those quiet moments.

  21. Why is this news?

    Posted by: Scott | Feb 5, 2009 3:27:10 PM

  22. Fuck this crazy ass bitch! People like her is why I legally carry a concealed gun.

  23. "....their behavior...."

    Apparently she doesn't know many heterosexuals.

    They are by far THE WORST.

    One that immediately comes to mind is the senseless beating and murder of one's own child.

    Don't know about you, but I don't know of ANY gay person that has beaten or murdered their own child.

    Posted by: mwf | Feb 5, 2009 3:49:51 PM

  24. Someone should just murder her.

    Posted by: Ty | Feb 5, 2009 4:11:46 PM

  25. "it's a struggle between our religious freedoms and their right to do what they want to do"

    She is right; in that, it is her religious right to believe in a mythical magical man in the sky and our right to FREEDOM!

    Also, why has she "done a lot of reading on [homosexuality]"? I don't think everyone that is a homophobe is a closet case... just those who are obsessed with it (especialy gun-toting dykes with Indigo Girls hair from Oklahoma).
