Kern Longs For The Good Old Days When Homosexuality Was Illegal

Alan Colmes had Oklahoma Rep. Sally Kern on his radio program yesterday to discuss her “Oklahoma Citizen’s Proclamation for Morality” and her militant opposition to gays.

Needless to say, it did not go well. 

Kern insists that what gays really want is to destroy marriage so that they can legalize polygamy and pedophilia, saying that the push for gay marriage is just the beginning of the effort to “take away the Bible.” She claims that  the government is “being intolerant of those who hold Biblical views” and that what she merely wants is “laws that protect the most people in all situations” instead of passing laws that make legal “behavior that we know is harmful.” 

When Colmes asked her if she thinks that being gay ought to be illegal, Kern responds that “it used to be illegal” but insists that she doesn’t want to put gays in jail … but then insists that “we need to get back to our Judeo-Christian values where we have a sense of things that are right and wrong and we should not have a government that’s out there promoting behaviors that we know are harmful.”

Obviously, her insistence that “we need to get back to our Judeo-Christian values” harkens back to a time when gays were thrown in jail, so Colmes asked her again if she thinks that those who engage in gay sex should be arrested, to which she responds “no, unless they are doing that in some way that is illegal, like maybe trying to entice children.” 

Of course, trying to entice children is already illegal and will forever remain illegal, regardless of what happens on the issue of full equality for gays – but Kern is so obsessed with the notion that all gays are pedophiles that she just can’t understand that obvious point.
