This is an update to my earlier post on Sally Kern’s hate speech against homosexuals
ANN ARBOR, MI — Representative Sally Kern has received over 27,000 vulgar, hate filled e-mails, her life has been threatened, her son falsely accused of being a homosexual, her financial supporters contacted and asked to no longer support her, and a leading homosexual activist entered her husband’s church last Sunday and took notes on her husband’s sermon. At times, as a precaution, a state trooper walks by her side when she enters the State Capitol.
. . . Said Thompson, “Representative Kern will not back down, regardless of the attempted hate-mongering intimidation by these national homosexual advocacy groups. Their actions are right out of a play-book developed by radical homosexual activists in the 1980s to manipulate and intimidate the majority of Americans into accepting the normalcy of the homosexual life style.”
Continued Thompson, “Radical homosexual groups are attempting to curtail Representative Kern’s constitutional rights to free speech, and use that speech as a platform to push for anti-Christian “hate crime” laws. In effect, their goal is to criminalize Christians and Christian beliefs.”
Thompson observed, “Her comments represent the view of a majority of Americans. All you need to do is look at all of the states that have overwhelmingly adopted constitutional amendments or statutes defending traditional marriages from the homosexual agenda. Christians believe that homosexual acts are acts of grave depravity, contrary to the natural law and under no circumstances can they be approved. However, Christians also believe one must love the sinner, but hate the sin.” . . .
I have several points in response…
1. When did it become “radical” to believe that all Americans deserve to be treated equally and with dignity under the law?
2. Not all Christians believe that “homosexual acts are acts of grave depravity, contrary to the natural law.”
3. I imagine that the vast majority of those 27,000 emails were sent by heterosexuals.
4. I would like to know how many of the 27,000 emails to Rep. Kern were actually “vulgar and hate-filled.” I know I left her a voice message and an email, and my messages were neither vulgar or hate-filled. They were pointed and angry, however.
