Oklahoma State Rep. Sally Kern's Anti-Gay Rant

On March 7, 2008, a jawdroppingly vile screed against gays by Oklahoma House of Representatives member Sally Kern.

It was pointed out to me by peskydang of Delphiforums, who found it on Crooks and Liars, who found it at Pam's House Blend. Kossack jmbranum wrote it up yesterday, here -- it's still rec'able. Please bump it up. I'm going to post the video (really just the audio, but with a video someone added to it) below the fold.

The Phelps Phund -- Turning Back Hate and Fostering Progress

On January 22, 2008, Australian actor Heath Ledger died. On that very same day, the fanatical Westboro Baptist Church posted a news release chock-full of their hate-filled vitriol that announced their intention to picket the funeral.

The cult-like hate group, which claims that it is their love for all that inspires their actions (to save the souls of homosexuals), appears to have enormous resources. They often fly on short notice to picket funerals of homosexuals, trangendered people and -- most recently -- they have even added soldiers to their list of targets. They claim that events like 9/11, Hurrican Katrina and all the major catastrophes and wars impacting the US today are God's punishment to the nation.1

It's time to use their own fervor against them.
