Here’s my response to the 1500-2000 who gathered at the state capitol to show their support for Rep. Sally Kern and her horrible hateful speech against homosexuals (see my previous post)

Homophobia lyrics

Up behind the Bus-stop in the toilets off the street
There are traces of a killing on the floor beneath your feet
Mixed up with the piss and beer are bloodstains on the floor
From the boy who got his head kicked in a night or two before

Homophobia
The worst disease
You can’t love who you want to love in times like these
In the pubs, clubs and burgerbars breeding pens for pigs
Alcohol, testosterons and ignorance and fist
Packs of hunting animals roam across the town
They find an easy victim and they punch him to the ground

Homophobia
The worst disease
You can’t love who you want to love in times like these
The siren of the ambulance the deadpan of the cops
Chalk to mark the outline where the boy first dropped
Beware the holy trinity – church and state and law
For every death the virus gets more deadly then before

Homophobia
The worst disease
You can’t love who you want to love in times like these

I’m thinking that it may be time to take the message of tolerance to Sally Kern’s church, maybe a protest outside on Sunday morning. I don’t have the time to organize such a protest but I’m throwing the idea out there in case someone else could organize it. I think the protest should happen there since Kern is claiming that it is God that is backing her whacked out viewpoints.
