Oklahoma’s self-appointed leader of morality, Republican Sally Kern, received a reprimand from her Oklahoma House of Representatives colleagues today over racist remarks she made last week. Except for the reprimand, it’s the same old story. Kern uses the gravitas of her office to spew hateful and bigoted remarks to any who will listen.
Here’s a few of Sally’s greatest hits!
Kern refers to homosexuals as a greater threat than terrorism. “I honestly think it’s the biggest threat that our nation has, even more so than terrorism or Islam, which I think is a big threat.”
Sally says that women don’t want to work as hard as men. “Women usually don’t want to work as hard as a man. Women tend to think a little bit more about their family, wanting to be at home more time, wanting to have a little more leisure time.”
While debating an amendment to the state’s constitution that would end affirmative action Sally Kern stated “We have a high percentage of blacks in prison, and that’s tragic, but are they in prison just because they are black or because they don’t want to study as hard in school? “I’ve taught school,” she added, “and I saw a lot of people of color who didn’t study hard because they said the government would take care of them.”
Is it just me, or does anyone else find it ironic that this darling of the Oklahoma right is the proud author of the Oklahoma Proclamation of Morality?
Hey Sally! When you have a moment, close your mouth, take off your “robes of righteousness,” get off your high horse, and read the last paragraph of your proclamation–here, I’ll save you the time and write it out for you! If you’ll add, homophobia, sexism and racism to the last line, I might even sign it!
BE IT RESOLVED that we, the undersigned, humbly call upon Holy God, our Creator, Sustainer, and Redeemer, to have mercy on this nation, to stay His hand of judgment, and grant a national awakening of righteousness and Christian renewal as we repent of our great sin.
