Threat assessment

When last we heard from Rep. Sally Kern (R-OKC), she had come up with the dubious notion of creating a State Library Material Content Advisory Board, which would be tasked with making sure our precious little snowflakes didn’t have any encounters with Teh Ghey.

After that little outburst, I figured she’d fade into the shadows once more. I figured wrong. And after a couple hundred search-engine queries with her name in them, I decided to go see what she’d gotten herself into this time, and happened upon this:

Studies show, no society that has totally embraced homosexuality has lasted for more than, you know, a few decades…. I honestly think it’s the biggest threat our nation has, even more so than terrorism or Islam.

Really? The biggest threat? This seems a trifle, um, overstated. In this corner, we have your GLBT (add letters as needed) types. In the other corner, we have your standard Islamic terrorists. Let us contrast and compare:

Item the First: You’ve offended members of the group. How does the group respond?

  • GLBT: Denounces you and, if you’re an elected official, supports your opponent.
  • Islamists: Cuts off your head.

Item the Second: The group wishes to get the attention of the American public. What action taken by them is the most visible?

Item the Third: Summarize the changes in American law desired by the group.

  • GLBT: Extension of the rights and privileges of marriage to include them.
  • Islamists: Extension of the rules delineated in the Qu’ran to include everyone.

Bonus question: Where would you rather be on a Saturday night?

Thank you for playing.

    An odd sense of priorities.

    State Representative Sally Kern of Oklahoma, a strong proponent of making sure that OK remains a leading exporter of comic material to the blogosphere, seems to have a bit of trouble distinguishing the relative dangers posed by Al-Qaeda versus those po…

    I love how Americans are so ignorant of history. What “studies” does she cite? The Ottoman Empire – lasted for a few centuries, not a few decades, and generally accepted homosexuality for most of that time. (Only stopped really when it adopted Western Europe’s attitudes.)

    But when did a bigot let a little thing like facts cloud an issue?

    Which is More of a Threat to The USA, Gays or Terrorism?

    Well it seems that at least one Republican, Rep. Sally Kern (R-OKC), and I would bet good money that it is more than one, thinks gays are more of a threat. Right. First I have to say that I love it when people ignorant of history make stat…
