Oklahoma's Sally Kern: 'Homosexuality is Not a Civil Right. It's a Human Wrong' — VIDEO

Kern

The author of Oklahoma's same-sex marriage ban and the state's most anti-gay lawmaker spoke out about a federal judge's ruling on Wednesday striking down the ban.

Said James Williamson:

"I was obviously disappointed, but not totally surprised. The federal courts have always taken a much more activist view of the constitution and so that was always a risk that they were going to see that."

Also speaking out is Sally "gays are worse than terrorists" Kern.

"Homosexuality is not a civil right. It's a human wrong...Homosexuals are saying this is who we are. This is how we're born. You tell a lie long enough, people begin to believe it."

Sally Kern's Husband Arranges Prayer Protest Of Gay-Themed Play in Oklahoma

Adam and Steve

The Oklahoma City Theatre Company will be releasing a production of "The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told" to run December 5-22, and some of the pastors in the area are taking offense. The play tells the story of Adam and Steve, who leave the Garden of Eden to encounter the Earth's first inhabitants, a pair of lesbians named Jane and Mabel. Reverend Steve Kern cannot abide what he is calling an "open display of intolerance, irreverence and disrespect for the faith of the majority of citizens of this city,” and has organized a prayer protest to take place on December 6 outside the theater.

Steve_kernRev. Kern, husband of the reprehensible Sally "Gays are worse than terrorists" Kern, insists that it will be a peaceful, quiet protest with no "yelling or screaming anything." What Kern is precisely protesting is uncertain, particularly since the nudity has been removed from this production, but the fact that the play has any sort of positive gay theme seems to be enough. Without a trace of irony or ounce of self-awarness, Kern said, “I just feel like we as Christians need to begin speaking out publicly about things like this. We've been silent for far too long.”

The theater company's artistic director Rachel Irick is unfazed by all the hoopla. In fact, she finds it all interesting as they've "never been protested to this extent." While the prayer vigil doesn't bother her in the slightest and will have no impact on the show proceeding as planned, she did have a rather insightful remark: “Have they considered Christ's words in Matthew 6:5? Christ never spoke against homosexuals, but he did condemn praying on street corners for the purpose of being seen.”


Sally Kern Weighs in as Oklahoma Tribe Hosts Third Gay Marriage: 'I Find It Kind of Sad' — VIDEO

Kern

The state of Oklahoma saw its third same-sex marriage on Thursday night on native American land when Darren Black Bear, a member of the Arapaho Cheyenne tribe, married his partner of 9 years, Jason Pickel. They were married by Darren's father, who marched in the civil rights marches with MLK Jr.

The ceremonies are sending the state's most well-known bigots into a tizzy.

Lawmaker Sally "gays are worse than terrorists" Kern resurfaced to weigh in:

"I find it kind of sad that this tribe is not willing to recognize what 75 percent of the voters of Oklahoma declared years ago, that marriage is a union between one man and one woman. Those of us who are Christians, who believe the Bible, are we going to have to give that up to satisfy the minority group that wants to redefine marriage...They can love whomever they want, there’s no laws right now that prevents two people of the same sex from living together.

Hundreds Of Anti-Gay Activists Pledge To Defy Any Supreme Court Ruling Favoring Marriage Equality

Screen Shot 2013-06-21 at 3.27.02 PM

Over two hundred Christian anti-gay activists and organizations have signed a letter threatening to ignore any upcoming Supreme Court ruling favoring gay marriage. The letter, filled with inflammatory rhetoric, has been signed by a "who's who" of anti-gay bigots including Dr. Ben Carson, Tony Perkins, Bill Donohue, Bishop Harry Jackson, James Dobson, and Oklahoma state Rep. Sally Kern. Additionally, Southern Poverty Law Center designated "hate groups" such as American Family Association and Family Research Council have also signed on.

From the letter:

"As Christian citizens united together, we will not stand by while the destruction of the institution of marriage unfolds in this nation we love. The Sacred Scriptures and unbroken teaching of the Church confirm that marriage is between one man and one woman. We stand together in solidarity to defend marriage and the family and society founded upon them. The effort to redefine marriage threatens the proper mediating role of the Church in society."

The letter goes on to say that "redefining marriage" is the "line we must not draw and one we cannot and will not cross." Considering the fact that Tony Perkins and others have predicted that any ruling in favor of gay marriage will lead to civil war or revolution, one has to wonder just how these anti-gay bigots intend to resists such a ruling.

Oklahoma Lawmaker Sally Kern Says Homosexuality a Daily Threat Worse Than Terrorism: VIDEO

Sally Kern sat down with Peter (Porno Pete) LaBarbera of 'Americans for Truth About Homosexuality' to promote her new book, The Stoning of Sally Kern, and returned to her favorite assertion that gays are worse for America than terrorists, Right Wing Watch reports.

Kern Said Kern:

You know if you just look at it in practical terms, which has destroyed and ended the life of more people? Terrorism attack here in America or HIV/AIDS? In the last twenty years, fifteen to twenty years, we’ve had maybe three terrorist attacks on our soil with a little over 5,000 people regrettably losing their lives. In the same time frame, there have been hundreds of thousands who have died because of having AIDS. So which one’s the biggest threat? And you know, every day our young people, adults too, but especially our young people, are bombarded at school, in movies, in music, on TV, in the mall, in magazines, they’re bombarded with ‘homosexuality is normal and natural.’ It’s something they have to deal with every day. Fortunately we don’t have to deal with a terrorist attack every day, and that’s what I mean.
