Terror Threat Level: Fabulous!

According to OK State Rep. Sally Kern, gays are a bigger threat to our nation than “terrorism or Islam.” They are here, taking over our public schools, and our government and trying to indoctrinate our children as young as 2 years old.

When asked to apologize for her statements, she said, “Hell no, I gots me some First Amendment rights, too, yo. You’re not the boss of me. You don’t know me. I can say what I wants to say. I’m a Christian, and Jesus said when it comes to gays you gots to hate the playa and the game, dawg.”

Ok, I paraphrased, but she did say she doesn’t need to apologize.

But does she? Not really.

I kind of want to thank her. People like her and Phelps (whose site I will not link to) only help to promote the idea that the anti-gay movement is just bat-shit crazy. Really, who wants to be associated with an ideology that thinks two guys holding hands is a greater threat to the world than Al Qaeda?

If I had ever heard their statements out of context, I would just assume it was brilliant Colbert-esque satire.

Rather than trying to argue my point, I’ll just give you a visual showing why her statements are more ridiculously hilarious than angering:

Al Qaeda:

 

Worse than Al Qaeda?

 

 

Yeah, that’s what she’s saying. If only more people would repeat this sentiment… the world would quickly become more tolerant.

  1. I hope you’re right, that outbursts like this just serve to emphasise the batshit-crazy nature of the argument. I’m often torn at first between enjoying how ridiculous something like this is, and worrying that there are people out there somewhere (however few) who are still capable of taking every word of such a tirade seriously.

    But then it’s usually not long before I see a collage like that one, and somehow the world seems like a pretty damn fine place again.

  2. Worse than Al-Qaeda? I think I seak for us all when I say: doubleyoo tee eff?

    Also – thanks for posting such a beautiful image, helps keep the blood pressure down after hearing a rant like that.

  3. Most Christians, I think you mean… I actually know personally a couple of counterexamples to that. Personally, I blame repressed latant homosexuality. Not being physically attracted to one woman would make two women together seem more icky, I think.

  4. Personally,

    I lived with a real bi-sexual for over a year, (and kicked her out for a girl who DIDN’T drag women home every Friday and Saturday. Whether I had to work the weekend or not…)

    Having that expirience, I don’t really buy into those photos (or most girl on girl porn) as pictures of girls who really want to be together.

    I buy them as, “lets’ do this as a easy way to turn all the guys on”. This is not the same as wanting a female. It just looks forced to me.

    It’s been over three years ago since that relationship mercifully ended but I still remember the girls. They NEVER had their buts out when they kissed.

    I’m just sayin’,

  5. The one word that jumped out at me in all of that was “infiltrating”. Like it’s some kind of guerilla movement. I mean, I have a couple of lesbian friends who joke about converting straight girls (you know, to get the free toaster), and one of them is pretty serious about it, but it’s just for her own entertainment value — she certainly isn’t bent on taking over government.

    Somebody needs to cut back on her caffeine …

  6. Waitaminnit– You mean if I can convert a girl to lesbianism, I can get a free toaster?

    Frell, yeah! I’ll bet my scintillating personality and odious personal habits could reform many a poor hetero lass!

    Where’s my fr*ggin’ toaster?!

  7. Having that expirience, I don’t really buy into those photos (or most girl on girl porn) as pictures of girls who really want to be together.

    So are you saying that the gays have successfully infiltrated because now it’s considered “cool” to be gay? The threat is real?

  8. Two things:

    1. Sally Kern is a moron, and has no business representing the interests of a toaster never mind the interests of actual human beings.

    2. It occurs to me that looking at the picture in the second row, second from the left, the silhouette created by kissing girls sticking out their butts vaguely resembles an hourglass, similar to the shape of a woman’s body. I wonder if that is significant on some primal brain kind of level.

    Sounds like a doctoral thesis in the making for some enterprising young PhD candidate…

  9. Hmm, interesting ideas folks. I think people were pretty much right, there’s a better contour and shape for the pictures. Only one way to be sure though…science, hurrah! I’m sure we’ll have no trouble finding some intrepid scientists willing to put every effort into discovering the reason. :)

  10. There is a totally excellent response to Sally Kern, by an 18 year old who lost his mother in the Oklahoma city bombing by terrorist and Christian Timothy McVeigh 13 years ago when he was 5 years old.

    http://scienceblogs.com/dispatches/2008/03/a_brilliant_reply_to_sally_ker.php

    According to him, someone who has had to live with the actual consequences of terrorism from a Christian, two gay people holding hands is not worse than hundreds of people being killed and maimed.

  11. Hey Elyse,

    Thank you for the response.

    I didn’t make myself very clear. I’m sorry for that.

    I have never been threatened by anybody (except Rush Limbagh, Ted Nugent, William Krystal and Grover Norquest, a few others that I can’t think of right now…)

    So naturally, I don’t think anybody’s sexual preference is a threat to anyone else.

    I merly mirrored my ex-girl friends observations, which I find valid. (In my own limited and admittedly flaude expirience).

    As I recall, my ex was VERY bored with girl on girl porn as well as I. (Again, girls that really want to kiss, in real life, have never stuck there buts out for me…but that could be just because it was me…)

    She claimed that most of that sort of porn seemed “forced” to her. Now that she mentioned it, it seemed that way to me too. It could be that I was just following along.

    I have to say that my current girlfriend (of three years) is, in fact, totally straight. So, I may have to apologize for being a bit out of touch with that sort of thing.

    Perhaps things have changed. But I know that, even these days, as a couple, we’re VERY boring.

    I have to admit, I like (love? Okay really, really like…) the lack of drama.

    I’m just sayin’,

  12. She claimed that most of that sort of porn seemed “forced” to her. Now that she mentioned it, it seemed that way to me too. It could be that I was just following along.

    Rodney, first (for the record) I was being facetious when I responded that the gays have successfully infiltrated.

    Second, most porn is “forced” and fake. I’ve never in my life called a plumber over asking him to euphemistically fix my pipes.

  13. Hey Elyse,

    That’s cool, and you sound really cool.

    Facetious or not, you’re okay in my book.

    I don’t mind getting my chops busted when I communicate poorly (which is all day).

    But on to my porn…

    I just need to “believe” that these people are really having “sex”.

    Most of the time, I don’t buy it (girl on girl, whatever).

    (A public service anouncement DON’T LOOK AT THE CAMERA!!! This has been a public service anouncement…)

    Oh, but when I do buy it…

    Those very few times…

    Stay cool,

    rod

    P.S.

    My plumber IS a woman, and I NEVER thought about it either…(though I would recommend her to anybody in the LA area as she rocks, as a plumber…I’m just sayin’…)

  14. Elyse,

    Second, most porn is “forced” and fake. I’ve never in my life called a plumber over asking him to euphemistically fix my pipes.

    Why? You got something against plumbers? How ’bout carpenters? They’re very good at nailing stuff.

    When you go on to a construction site, y’know how to tell the carpenters from the electrcians?

    The carpenters will nail anything, but the electricians will screw everything.

    :)

  15. Hey Janiebelle,

    I worked my way though my first year of college, as an Electrician. (Comes in handy with my house and all…)

    At the risk of getting bonked on the head by my girl friend, (who is wacthing me now so this is gonna hurt) yes, we WILL screw anything.

    BTW: However we really prefer to screw very, very, very, pretty, amazingly pretty, girls…

    I mean we’re talking fashion models here, really…

    I’m just sayin’,

  16. Call me a selfish homo, but the downfall of America is worth a lot of hot mansex.

    Okay, you’re a selfish homo, but let’s be realistic. The downfall, upfall, overfall, sidewaysfall, nofall, springsummerwinterfall of America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Oz, the enitre world, and any space stationed where people are is worth a lot of mansex, womansex, manwomansex, womanmansex, and animalsex.

    Am I the only the straight up horndog on this site?

  17. Sam,

    Unlikely in the extreme. Just so y’know.

    Of course.

    One cannot — no matter the circumstances — and should not ever over estimate the value of hot, world-shaking, teeth-chattering, jibberish-speaking, toe-curling, Olympic fucking.

    Gay, straight, bi, interracial, interspecies, or otherwise.

    Just saying.

  18. One cannot — no matter the circumstances — and should not ever over estimate the value of hot, world-shaking, teeth-chattering, jibberish-speaking, toe-curling, Olympic fucking.

    You left out “earsplitting.” It can be pretty loud if it’s done right.
