She also thinks President Obama is not a true christian in that he's issued a GLBT Pride Proclamation for June, 2009 yet didn't make a big fuss over the National Day of Prayer back in early May, 2009. Only Sally Kern is the heavenly hostess.
The Kerns have two sons, one of whom (Nathan I think his name is) has followed the fundie biblical imperative to go forth, be fruitful and multiply by marrying a woman, lying with her, dispersing his seed, and begetting children.
The other son, Jesse, has merely gone forth to Iowa and kept his seed to himself, declaring himself in a Tulsa WORLD interview to be chaste for his god.
"First of all, no one's sexuality is anyone's business. It is not even my mother's business," he said. "I practice celibacy to give to my God," he said. (http://tinyurl.com/39kpsq)
It would seem that indeed, Jesse Kern IS keeping his sexuality to himself, not even his own mother knows for sure. But that worries me.
If, and this is a big IF, Sally Kern has a gay family member, and she truly loves her own progeny as she has said in public interviews, and she is truly practicing christian values, wouldn't you think she'd be a tad warmer and fuzzier than to say homosexuality should be "exposed and attacked"?
What if that target to be "exposed and attacked" turns out to be a birth certificate with her name on it as the mother of the child?
I have no beef with any grown man or woman who chooses to be very private about their sexual orientation, regardless of their last name and who has no public power or position.
But I do have a difference of opinion with a ranting, gnashing, and foaming parent with an elected, tax-payed position who chooses to advocate and reference with violent verbs actions against my civil rights as an equal citizen of America.
With every additional pronouncement from Sally Kern, who is always willing to talk about her discomfort with diversity, I think she's finally found the bottom of her soul, but apparently Kern's soul is infinitely deep.
