What you're about to hear is a portion of a jaw-dropping speech delivered by Oklahoma State Representative Sally Kern at a gathering in her district.
A few choice quotes from Representative Kern: Studies show, no society that has totally embraced homosexuality has lasted for more than, you know, a few decades . . . They are going after our young children, as young as two years of age, to try to teach them that the homosexual lifestyle is an acceptable lifestyle . . . One of my colleagues said We don't have a gay problem in our community ... well you know what, that is so dumb. If you have cancer in your little toe, do you just say that I'm going to forget about it since the rest of you is fine? It spreads! This stuff is deadly and it is spreading. It will destroy our young people and it will destroy this nation.
This is what they say when they think we're not listening.
This isn't Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, Fred Phelps, or John Hagee. This isn't Rod Parsley, Osama Bin Laden, Adolf Hitler, or Fox News - this is an elected official. One whose influence is felt and held by a constituency, one who is active in the politics old hysteria and division.
Note: And you all will be horrified to learn the person sits on the Education Committee in the Oklahoma legislature (Edit) AND we are further dismayed to report this person used to be a teacher!!! Imagine having THAT person who was harboring those ignorant and hateful thoughts teaching your child (or to you and your sisters and brothers for that matter). Ick, just ick.
Please visit www.victoryfund.org/listening and add your name to the growing list of people who are listening to this noxious propaganda, but are not buying it. Currently there are only 2100+ 166,681 people numbered, and that number needs to go up - WAY up.
Also even if you are not in her district (or her state or even country) you may wish e-mail Representative Kern (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone her office at (405) 557-7348 and (in a polite and civilized fashion please) her know how you feel about hate speech.
X-Posted here & there - please pass it on.
This is a UK-wide billboard campaign! Here is a link to the site for more information.
I THINK... that given the absolute wreck of an MP that is Sally Kern, this poster campaign should be spread to the USA, don't you agree? Don't you just want to play a part in spreading this campaign globally so it isn't limited to the UK? Why not print off a bunch of posters, stick them all over town and then X-POST THIS SUGGESTION AND THE LINK to any community/site that might be interested?
