State Rep. Sally Kern defended her position against what she called the “homosexual agenda” during a debate with opponent Ron Marlett in Bethany Thursday night.
“It’s a moral decay that’s going to destroy our nation from within,” she said.
Marlett said he entered the race because of Kern’s comments about gays.
“Certain statements over the last few months have been less than kind,” he said.
When asked about the biggest threat facing the United States, Marlett said it was dependence on foreign oil. Kern said it was homosexuality.
“While terrorism has killed more than 3,000 people, in the continental United States in the last 15 years, homosexual behavior has killed more than 100,000,” she said. “It’s a danger to life. It is a danger to health.”
“To compare certain members of our community to a cancer that might need to be removed is chilling to me,” Marlett said.
“Our county is united pretty much against terrorism, but homosexuality is being promoted in schools and by the government,” said Kern.
