God bless, Oklahoma State Representative Sally Kern. I learned about her from reading Janet Folger's article on WorldNetDaily. Rep. Kern made a speach that has led to an onslaught of hate e-mails and other shows of tolerance. Here are some quotes from it.
What they're trying to do is send a message of intimidation to those people who are taking a stand for traditional marriage and against the homosexual lifestyle. They want to silence us, is what they want to do. And it's happening all over the state. You know, the very fact that I'm talking to you like this, here today, puts me in jeopardy. OK, and so, so be it.
This is one of the more polite responses Rep. Kern received from homosexual activists. (She received about 30,000.)
I heard what you said and you should be killed you stupid c---- b----! along with George W. Bush! Christianity is the cancer in our society and should be eliminated!
It seems to me that the homosexual community is proving Rep. Kern right. Just speaking her mind has at least caused her to receive death threats.
Here is another quote from her speech.
Because what's happening now, they're going after, in schools, 2-year-olds. You know what, they're trying to get early childhood education. They want to get our young children into the government schools so they can indoctrinate them. I taught school for close to 20 years and we're not teaching facts and knowledge any more, folks; we're teaching indoctrination.
This is affirmed (though they would never call it indoctrination) by the video "It's Elementary: Talking About Gay Issues in School"
Co-producer Debra Chasnoff stated: "What's clear in the film is that the younger the kids, the more open they were. If we could start doing this kind of education in kindergarten, first grade, second grade, we'd have a better education."
We are talking about my 5-year-old being indoctrinated with "having two daddies is great" when in reality children are designed by the Creator to need a mother and a father. The insidiousness of this makes me sad and frustrated and outraged. Once again, a great reason to homeschool. What your children learn, they will think. What they think, will change their behavior. Government schools cannot have my children.
So, like I said, God bless Rep. Kern. It takes courage to take a stand. May she embolden others. If you would like to e-mail her with some love-mail, here is the link to her site.
