Fasten your seat belts, Instincters. There is a lot to cover with this venomous lady. 1) Calling yourself a victim after you've demonized the LGBT community for years is like slapping someone in the face then crying because your hand hurts. 2) The only thing you have to fear from the gay community is a possible glitter bomb, verbal warfare and a cold shoulder. 3) LGBT people have to fear real things, like the effects of legislation you create against us based on lies, anti-gay rhetoric you preach that absorbs into our communities, and probably the most egregious crime you've committed in office...Find out what that is after the jump.
Wearing an olive green turtle neck paired with a quilted vest and a gold chain...in public! How could you?! All. Time. Low.
Moving on. Apparently Sally has had "death threats" that she wants to now talk about. Why, you ask? Because she has a new book out titled The Stoning of Sally Kern. That's why.
The woman who claimed that "the homosexual agenda is just destroying this nation... it's the biggest threat that our nation has..." also says that she received thousands of outraged emails, many of which she claimed contained death threats.
Kern recently did a radio interview about her new book and one of the hosts David Barton said, "If you touch homosexuality, be prepared to pay a price, not just attacks, it's gonna cost you economically, other things as well, may cost your life." Really? When was the last time a homophobe was tied to a face and left to die by gays?
"I have to be honest with you Rick, when I was sitting there in my car that day and when she told me that those emails were coming from homosexuals, honestly, fear gripped by whole body, because I was very aware of the homosexual lobbyists and the power that they have. And people say, 'oh you're so brave, so heroic,' but I'm not, I'm just a sinner saved by grace and I was gripped with fear that day. I just said, 'Lord, what have I done?'"
HuffPost Gay Voices Points out that "Though Kern said she received death threats after her speech in 2008, she then recanted her claim after The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation waded through the 7,000+ emails and found little evidence to back up her statement."
We certainly thought that the name of your new book was a joke, and while it should be considered as such, the title still remains. Which brings forth the question: what the hell is wrong with you? How dare you, by any measure, compare your situation to the life of an Iranian woman who was executed and whose story was told in The Stoning of Soraya M.
This isn't The Crusades, we aren't out to get you, we just wish you'd shut the hell up. Please.
