Yeah, well it was only a matter of time before her true colours came shinin' through. So much for her meeting with P-FLAG.
One question: Why are the most visible, vocal representatives at CWA men? I'm just askin' . From PageOneQ:
Pastors and members of Concerned Women for America are heading an upcoming "Free Speech Rally for Sally" in the continuing media battle over a State House representative's controversial anti-gay speech.
"Recently," a press release states, "Rep. Kern has been under attack from radical homosexual activists and their followers over remarks she made regarding the homosexual agenda. Rep. Kern took a Biblical stand against homosexual activism and has refused to back down from her statements despite receiving death threats."
The educator turned public representative has received thousands of phone calls and e-mails, but none has been verified as a legitimate threat.
Statements in the speech, originally given to a private group of Republicans and secretly recorded, include expressing the belief that the "gay agenda," as a "death knell," poses a larger threat to the United States than terrorism, and that such an agenda needed to be treated like a cancer. Rep. Kern also spoke out against pro-gay philanthropists' participation in the political process.
"CWA," the press release continues, "applauds Rep. Kern for continuing to be steadfast and resolute in this fight against the homosexual agenda and for shedding light on the threat it poses to our nation."
"There are certainly those who hate Rep. Kern," says CWA's Policy Director for Cultural Issues Matt Barber. "They've made that perfectly clear with vicious personal attacks and even death threats. But millions of Americans proudly stand alongside Sally Kern and say, 'Thank you. Thank you for boldly standing your ground and for unapologetically defending Biblical Truth.'"
Kern has continued to defend her stances and her First Amendment rights, most recently at a March 27th meeting with a local chapter of Parents, Family and Friends of Lesbians and Gays in her state capitol office. The lawmaker has retained legal counsel.
The rally is scheduled for Wednesday, April 2, at 12pm CDT, in the rotunda of the Oklahoma State Building.
And so the craziness goes.
