Sally Kern to the defense of Ruben Diaz: ‘homosexuals mean for evil toward you’

Sally Kern

Sally Kern, an Oklahoma state legislator known for her outspoken stance against homosexuality, has come to the defense of New York state Sen. Ruben Diaz Sr. (D-Bronx), a Pentecostal minister and the lone Democrat to vote against marriage equality.

On Monday, Diaz said he wears “a badge of honor” and proudly touted the outpouring of support he has received from the Christian community for his ‘nay” vote on gay marriage, including this message from Kern:

“Sen. Diaz, you are in my prayers. Three years ago I was the target of the homosexuals because of statements I made regarding the dangers of the homosexual agenda. So I know what you are going through.

Continue to stand strong on God’s Word. What the homosexuals mean for evil toward you, God will use for His glory, your good, and the benefit of others. God bless you and your family.”

Kern, you might remember, made national headlines in March 2008 when she stated:

“Studies show that no society that has totally embraced homosexuality has lasted more than, you know, a few decades. So it’s the death knell of this country.

“I honestly think it’s the biggest threat our nation has, even more so than terrorism or Islam — which I think is a big threat, okay? Cause what’s happening now is they are going after, in schools, two-year olds… And this stuff is deadly, and it’s spreading, and it will destroy our young people, it will destroy this nation.”

In June 2009, Kern authored a “morality proclamation” blaming gay marriage and President Barack Obama’s acknowledgment of LGBT Pride month for the nation’s “economic crisis.”

  15. I won’t be inviting Sally and Ruben to my incredibly fabulous wedding reception. Did I tell you there will be an open bar? I don’t care how desperate those two are for a free drink. I’m printing their pics right now to give to security so they can make sure they don’t sneak in. It’s often people like them that think they’re good Christians, but really just hate spewers cuz they never get invited to the gay wedding receptions with the open bars.

  19. You should have mentioned that Kern is the same person who spoke out for an amendment to the Oklahoma constitution that would have outlawed affirmative action in ways that got her a public reprimand from her colleagues. On April 27, 2011, she claimed that black people (and presumably other people of color, though she apparently never stated them, probably because they don’t carry quite the same racist punch) just want the government to take care of them, so they don’t work or study hard in the first place. She also claimed that women don’t really want to work—or at least to work as hard as their male counterparts. (Naturally she failed to mention that women continue to get less pay for doing the same job as well as or better than men.)

    I think it’s useful to talk about the ways in which prejudice against us is often combined with prejudice against other communities. It all fits into the strategy of using minorities as scapegoats for all of society’s ills, dividing and conquering, etc. We must try to think of ourselves as being in solidarity with all of the other social justice movements.

  20. You should not be allowed to be in a public office if you cannot string together a grammatically correct sentence. “They mean for evil toward you”??? Someone didn’t go to English class.

  21. Let us hope for the best

  22. I’m still not sure what the “homosexual agenda” is. Did I miss the big gay meeting or something, when we all got together and came up with this “agenda”?

    Posted on Tuesday, July 12, 2011 at 12:04am
  23. I just had to go reread my post for grammatical correctness. It’s mostly okay and nothing like the the crap you just pointed out. Yes, who are these people that think they should be in the public offices and worse yet, who are the people who vote for them. Fortunately, I run with a less grammatically challenged crowd that gets invited to all the best parties that mostly have open bars too!

  30. when are these people going to realize that you can’t control who you love. it’s love, it’s an unexplainable mystery. why can’t they just accept that? we are all different. what would this world be if we were all the same?

    Posted on Tuesday, July 12, 2011 at 9:10am
  31. This latest interview, one that SHE requested with a liberal host, clearly shows how sex negative and ill-adjusted she is with modern life. She wants a perfect society supposedly based on her version of biblical “truth”. This is a selective view of her own invention.

    When she’s unhappy with something she wants it put away out of sight.

    If her idea of a perfect theocratic society were put into play, she wouldn’t be in public life–she would be doing housework and having as many serial babies as possible.

    But we know there’s nothing rational about Sally Kern.
