Kern’s book relates a political battle



Rep. Sally Kern, who created a firestorm by describing the impact of the homosexual agenda in America, has chronicled her battle for decency in an about-to-be-released book.
The name of the book is The Stoning of Sally Kern.
“I didn’t choose that title,” Kern said. “The publishers came up with that title. It just relates my story of what happened to me and the things I found out and what I went through.”
This situation started a few years ago after Kern attended a Pro-Family Legislators’ Conference by David Barton (www.wallbuilders.com).
“At that conference, we learned about a group of wealthy homosexual individuals who had a very detailed plan to change the political climate of the entire United States by focusing on local and state races to help get homosexual or pro-homosexual candidates in office,” Kern said. “And that was the year when the race for Oklahoma Corporation commissioner had Dana Murphy running against an openly homosexual individual (Democrat Jim Roth).”
Kern returned from the conference and found that the wealthy homosexuals had contributed to the candidate in Oklahoma.
“They were supporting him and I mentioned this to a few folks,” Kern said. “And someone asked me to speak to a Republican club about this group and I accepted. I spoke in several places.”
During one of the meetings, she shared the news of this homosexual movement and their plans for the nation.
Someone secretly taped the session and the file was sent to the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund and several months later, it was posted on www.youtube.com and at the same time, a conference on homosexual issues was underway in Oklahoma City.
“It has had close to two million hits since that time,” Kern said. “And overnight, I became infamous. That’s what led to this whole situation.”
Kern was vilified in the national media for presenting the biblical view that homosexuality is a sin. Talk show host Ellen Degeneres, an avowed lesbian, attacked Kern on her show.
“The average American doesn’t understand the threat that homosexuality and the total acceptance of it into our society is to our nation,” Kern said. “We need to wake up to this threat.
“I am always being accused of hating homosexuals. I don’t hate anyone. This isn’t a matter of hating someone or trying to deny them their equal rights. All American citizens have equal rights under our Constitution. This is trying to get acceptance for a behavior that is specifically mentioned in God’s Word that is wrong.”
If the homosexuals get special status for same-sex marriage, what would stop them from seeking approval for group marriage or marriage to animals or children, Kern said.
“It just opens Pandora’s Box,” Kern said.
The book looks at the AIDS epidemic and points out that infection is much higher among homosexual men than any other group – even illegal drug addicts.
“I took a lot of heat when this all started because I said this is a lifestyle they choose,” said Kern. “And when I say choose, they don’t choose it in the sense of like going through a cafeteria line and looking at all the different types of lifestyles and saying, I’ll take that one because it looks exciting.
“No. Everybody knows it is not exciting. It has many harmful effects. They choose it in the sense that they succumb to the temptation to give into it. They are not born that way. God would not call something an abomination and make someone where they had no choice. They have the opportunity, they have the power to say no to that lifestyle.”
“None of us gets to choose the temptations we deal with. We are all tempted. We are all sinners. We can all say no to destructive temptations.”
Not only is there a battle against the homosexual movement but the so-called mainstream media is generally a partner against defense of biblical and traditional values.
The Tulsa World ran a sympathetic two-part front page story about a Bixby teenage boy who wants a sex-change. Its website showed a video of the boy kissing and embracing his “boyfriend.” The message in the newspaper was clear – God made a mistake by creating this boy as a boy rather than a girl.
“The media, Hollywood – all of them are in bed, trying to promote this ungodly, humanistic philosophy,” Kern said. “It’s really sad because if you are a Christian and you believe God’s Word, you have to believe in the sovereignty of God. You have to believe in the goodness of God. God makes no mistakes.
“What we have done is thrown out the concept of sin. And we are trying to make anything and everything legitimate. This book addresses that.”
Kern said Christians who defend biblical and traditional values are unfairly labeled as judgmental.
“I really talk about that in my book,” Kern said. “I address these attacks that say I am being mean spirited.
“We are all sinners. But we are to stand up for God’s principles. And doing that, in love, is not being judgmental. When we do that, we are actually saying to people, they can change and there is a better way.
“And if Christians cower down because we don’t want to be called homophobic or bigoted, then we are not being the salt and light that God wants us to be.
“We are letting the media and the popular culture fit us into their mold.”
The book will be available in bookstores (including Mardels) on July 5.
An interview on Tulsa Beacon Weekend on KDFO AM970 was used as the basis for this story.

Did God really say all that stuff about sin and abomination? Well, I guess it must be true then. I've never met the guy so I can't be sure. Has he got an email addy? What I'd like to know is why he talks to people like Sally Kern but not to people like me. Maybe Sally's got some kinda extra sensory perception or something... you know, like a password to the heavenly channel.

It's a good thing we have the Sallys of this world to keep us ignorant SOBs informed of what God is telling us, otherwise we'd never know.

Does anyone have a brown paper bag I can borrow?

I really believe that these remarks by her and her kind are the last, desperate attempts of people drowning in their own hatred, ignorance and stupidity. Thanks for posting this Justin! It shows quite clearly that we are on the correct side of this non-issue.

Her God is the official God of the United States. I wonder what she'd say to a heterosexual Buddhist who got married in town hall.
