Sally Kern's Husband Is One Step Closer To Joining Her In The State Legislature
Yesterday, Oklahoma pastor Steve Kern, husband of famously anti-gay state legislator Sally Kern, advanced to a runoff primary in his own bid to take public office. He is hoping to join his wife in the Oklahoma legislature — she’s a state representative and he’s aiming for a spot representing Oklahoma City in the state senate.
Steve Kern seems to be an ideological ally of his wife, who gained national notoriety when she insisted that the “homosexual agenda” is a greater threat to America than terrorism and then writing a book called “The Stoning of Sally Kern” about the criticism she received.
Not only did Steve Kern defend his wife's comments, saying "they were true in the sense that the [gay] agenda was more stealthy than the terrorists' agenda," but he has a history of right-wing activism of his own.
Last year, Steve Kern led a rally of pastors to protest a biblical satire with “homosexual themes” being performed in Oklahoma City and prayed that God’s “mercy would withhold his justice” in punishing the city.
Kern also holds a David-Barton style view of the Constitution as an explicitly Christian document. In an August 2013 lecture, he explained that the founders were only tolerant of other religions in an effort to “try to win them to Jesus.”
He explained that this Christian-Nation ideology is “not asking for anything that isn’t already happening everywhere in the world,” perhaps unwisely comparing it to the system of Islamic law in Saudi Arabia. He added that same-sex marriage is “unconstitutional” because it “goes against the very worldview that we established our constitution on in the first place.”
Later in the presentation, Kern responded to a questioner who wondered if it would be treasonous to overthrow the government, to which Kern replied that it would not.
