Kern recently went on a verbal rampage against gays and lesbians in which she argued that "homosexuality" is a "bigger threat" to the nation than "terrorism." Now, Kern has expanded her moralistic net by introducing a proclamation in the Oklahoma legislature that links the slumping economy with acts of debauchery, which include "abortion, pornography, same sex marriage, sex trafficking, divorce, illegitimate births, [and] child abuse."
Remaining true to her anti-gay roots, Kern is particularly upset that Obama recognized Gay Pride month. The draft proclamation states that the legislature is "deeply disturbed that the Office of the president of these United States disregards the biblical admonitions to live clean and pure lives by proclaiming an entire month to an immoral behavior. . . ."
Kern's proclamation echoes intriguing comments that Newt Gingrich recently made, which link contemporary America with paganism: "I think this is one of the most critical moments in American history. . .We are living in a period where we are surrounded by paganism." At the same event, Mike Huckabee stated that: "I am not a citizen of the world . . . I am a citizen of the United States because only in the United States does citizenship start with our creator."
The draft proclamation concludes with a series of resolutions that urge citizens of Oklahoma and the United States to "repent" and adhere to the Bible. Another passage pleads with God to go easy on the United States for its sins:
NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that we the undersigned elected officials of the people of Oklahoma, religious leaders and citizens of the State of Oklahoma, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world, solemnly declare that the HOPE of the great State of Oklahoma and of these United States, rests upon the Principles of Religion and Morality as put forth in the HOLY BIBLE; andVery interesting -- o.k. -- I mean "scary." I believe I saw some fire and brimstone flare up outside just from reading this stuff!
BE IT RESOLVED that we, the undersigned, believers in the One True God and His only Son, call upon all to join with us in recognizing that “Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord,” and humbly implore all who love Truth and Virtue to live above reproach in the sight of God and man with a firm reliance on the leadership and protection of Almighty God; and
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.
Just for fun, I have posted Kern's recorded warning about the destructive nature of "homosexuality." Enjoy.
