(OKLAHOMA CITY) Not content with calling gay citizens terrorists and twice carrying a loaded handgun into the Oklahoma Capitol Building, GOPer Rep. Sally Kern has enlisted her husband, Steve Kern, into the family business of trying to maintain gays and lesbians as non-citizens.

Steve Kern is the pastor at Olivett Baptist Church in Oklahoma City, a position that gives him a bully pulpit to read all the dirty parts of his bible and blame gay people for making him do it.

It's important to remember that when Steve Kern, standing in for his wife, speaks of liberty and freedom (Oklahoma Gazette, July 22, ) he's not using these words looking for some lost American Garden of Eden. Those new to the Kern Kontroversy can read more here: .

Kern and his bullying colleagues are feeling threatened by, and are desperate to forestall, the encroaching loss of their ability to dominate, terrorize, and otherwise impose apartheid on this country's gay and lesbian citizens. As this verbal lynch mob continues to get high on their hot air of bible bluster and goes off the edge with their flat earth rhetoric, they are becoming more separated from the mainstream of Americans who know that gays and lesbians are integral threads in America's social and political fabric.

Gays and lesbians pay taxes, hold steady jobs, volunteer in the community, maintain families, get elected to public office, and serve in the Armed Forces. We bleed, live, and die just like everyone else. How is that a threat to anyone who takes the time to think about it?

How is diversity a threat to anyone unless they want to hide from what they don't understand?

It's remarkable how the most consciously self-righteous are blind to the facts right in front of their faces.

How revealing that the Kern Krowd uniform of choice is a black robe--setting themselves up to judge the rest of us?

You can read about the His and Her Kern Revolutionary Regiment here at the Oklahoma Gazette: .
