Considering that Sally Kern made a name for herself by proclaiming that the homosexual agenda is the “biggest threat our nation has, even more so than terrorism or Islam” and then declaring herself “cultural warrior for Judeo-Christian values,” it doesn’t come as much of a surprise that she continued to spout inanities when she sat down for an interview with a student journalist from the University of Oklahoma:
Kern defined evolution to me as “the process of wanting to create something or have something be perfect. Get rid of that which is not healthy and strong.”
Kern told me she associates the acceptance of evolution with Adolf Hitler, despite the fact that, under the Nazis, libraries were specifically instructed not to stock works promoting “the false scientific enlightenment of primitive Darwinism.”
Whichever side of the issue you stand on, it’s clear Kern has no idea what she’s talking about.
In campaigning, Kern has made much of her Christian pedigree, even claiming that God directly instructed her to run for office and to become a “cultural warrior.”
