Tulsa World: Sally Kern’s son denies reports he is gay

Quite a few folks (both in comments on this blog and on other websites -also here) have stated that Jesse Kern (Sally Kern’s son) is gay. In fairness I thought it was appropriate to post a link this story in which he tells his side of the story.

I also though thought it was interesting that Jesse, while denying the allegation that he was gay, made it pretty clear that he doesn’t agree with his mother on this issue…

Kern’s views differ from those of his mother, although he applauds her for standing up for what she believes, and thanks his parents for his good upbringing. His father is a Baptist minister in Oklahoma City.

He said the purpose of sex is reproduction, and it is the function of the animal body.

“But we are more than animals, and we can use sex for a tool of deep relationship with another person.”

Kern added that what is more important than whether it be a relationship with someone of the same sex, is that there “needs to be honor in any relationship whether it is a straight or gay relationship.”

I would have to agree with Jesse in that last sentence. That is the real issue for me too.
