Oklahoma State Rep. Says People Who Disagree with Her are Stoning God

Sally Kern

In 2011, Oklahoma representative Sally Kern published her book modestly titled The Stoning of Sally Kern: The Liberal Attack on Christian Conservatism in which she recounts her harrowing experience of battling against the opinions of homosexuals while attempting to convince people that being criticized is the same as being martyred.

In 2008, Kern made a speech to a small group of like-minded bigots. The speech eventually went viral and more people found out that Kern had compared being gay with having cancer in one’s little toe. Naturally, there was a huge outcry against her comments and she decided to write a saga about it in her book.

While speaking on rationalist Peter LaBarbera’s radio show the same year, Kern continued pursuing her martyrdom as well as the almighty dollar, since she was still promoting her book.

“It’s more dangerous, and yes I think that it’s also more dangerous because it will tear down the moral fiber of this nation. We were founded as a nation upon the principles of religion and morality, if we take those out from under our society we will lose what has made us a great nation, we will no longer be a virtuous people, which we see happening already. And without virtue this nation will not survive,” she said.

Recently, Kern appeared on another radio show In the Market and tried to justify her inane rant of 2011. This time again, she chose to remind everyone how God believes exactly what she believes. She accused homosexuals of “stoning” her and in turn stoning God because they chose to disagree with what she had to say and criticized her instead.

“It just broke my heart because so often what they were doing, they weren’t just stoning me, they were stoning and desecrating the God that I love. There was just so much hate, they accuse me of being hateful, and I never once said anything hateful. Such hate expressed against the Lord and against his word and then the way they, I mean, these people, I believe these people, I believe scripture teaches this, they’re deceived and to me the real hate is from those people who say ‘you’re born this way and you can’t change, deal with it,” said Kern.
