Oklahoma Homophobe Sally Kern Takes On Heterosexual Divorce

Christian warrior and Oklahoma lawmaker Sally Kern, who once declared gays more of a threat to America than terrorists, has set her sights on outlawing some forms of heterosexual divorce:

Kern Scheduled for introduction in the 2010 legislative session by state Rep. Sally Kern, R-Oklahoma City, House Bill 2279 would restrict the "use of incompatibility as a ground for divorce" in Oklahoma.

The bill would not allow for divorce on the basis of incompatibility if:

  • There are living minor children of the marriage
  • The parties have been married 10 years or longer
  • Either party files a written objection to the granting of a divorce

If passed, the act would become effective on Nov. 1.

  1. Actually I am for this. I am for anything that actually protects the sanctity of marriage. Let's make divorce near impossible.

    If the sanctity of marriage, the breeding and raising of children, god and all that what what is the reason why gays are being excluded from marriage. Then we should be darn sure we hold the hetrosexuals to their desire for the sanctity of marriage.

  2. Never thought I'd say this in a million fucking years, but: nice work, Sally Kern!

  3. Finally a little consistency. I'll be interesting to see how those save-the-family Pharasees react to a little restriction on their own lives. I predict she'll be shot down quickly.

  4. Her husband will lobby against it.

  5. She's truly unintelligent and indoctrinated. Also, this is great.

  6. Sally-whatever happened to the Republican doctine of limited government involvement-
    oh that's right- that's everyplace outside of the bedroom- a room you and your hubby obviously haven't shared since dinosaurs and men walked the earth together.
    It must be wonderful to be that sanctimonious. I am glad we have you to act as the moral compass of Umerica.

  7. I wonder if her husband wants a divorce. Wouldn't it be interesting to have something like that revealed?

  8. It's like a pro-equality person's dream. Awesome.

  10. I so hope this passes. We should have bills like this in every state so straight people can see how fucked up it is to legislate what they can do in their relationships

  11. At the very least, maybe her constituents will get fed up with her and she'll lose a lot of favor...

  12. Actually this is really a terrible thing, in terms of the erosion of civil liberties. We can't demand equality for ourselves and celebrate when others have their rights encroached upon.

    If we weaken divorce laws based on a minority opinion of what is "moral", it threatens everyone's right to end a dysfunctional relationship.

    Come on folks. We're better than this.

  13. Does this bill have even a remote chance of passing?

    Posted by: SmartVac | Jan 5, 2010 10:14:38 AM

  14. ahh Kurt....screw that shit...being nice to these assholes aint wrking....not until they see THEIR RIGHTS being taken away/or curtailed..will they "maybe" see the inJustice of it all ???

  15. Hey, there's a survey at the newstory link!

    Do you think the state should be able to tell some married couples they cannot get divorced?

    Vote: YES!!!! Many times!

  16. I agree with Kurt on this one. It really pisses me off when politicians don't actually represent the people they were elected to and just keep attempting to push forward laws that fall into their own indoctrinated belief system.

  18. This is what you would call a "fierce" advocate.

  19. Finally! Now maybe some of these “holier than thou” types will get a clue now that their own rights to do as they please are in jeopardy. I’m not for the erosion of ANYONE’S civil rights, but sometimes it takes a knock in the head like this to get people to see the error of their ways.

  20. Its nice to see that the people against us are absolutely batsh-- crazy. Makes our logic-based platform look even better.

  23. EXACTLY why our founding fathers..who were puritanical religious men by the way...wished to seperate Church from cannot legislate morality upon a state/country...not all constituents are of the same faith/morality, etc. That is why prohibition didnt work, government lost revenue from taxes, and crime (especially organized crime) became rampant...the abolishinists were proved to have made things worse than cannot legislate a single religious doctrine on the won't last in long run despite how popular it starts out....

  24. Just another after thought..."Fundamentalist" (and can someone explain to me exactly what is "fundamental" in these peoples belief system) Christians have no memory of history or are they just ignorant of history? First, of all...we as a country RANT against countries elsewhere that are ruled by thier clergy "Muslims, etc" because they are too "radical" and are just plain "wrong" about everything...What makes the our "Fundamentalist" right-wing Christian zealots in this country any different? Anybody care to discuss the Crusades and the Inquisition and how horrible attrocities were committed in the name of the Christian God and in Jesus' name? These folks probably would cheer them on back then and would have joined in the torture of Jews...Watch out what you wish for Fundamentalists...history and the masses may come back to bite you in the backsides...and you would deserve it!

  25. You have no idea how many times I have fantasized about the death of this fanatic hag. She's beyond ignorant - her entire world view is based on Biblical bigotry, and the only time you hear about her is when she's proposing some whacked out religious law. You can't argue with idiots like this.
    On the other hand, I'd be all for outlawing divorce under any circumstances in states with an antigay constitutional amendment. And capital punishment for teen pregnancy. And stoning for adultery. Should I go on?
