Apollo as god

In mythology, Apollo is one of the most important and many-sided of the Olympian deities. Apollo has been variously recognized as a god of light and the sun; truth and prophecy; archery; medicine and healing; music, poetry, and the arts. (from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apollo )

What if that target to be "exposed and attacked" turns out to be a birth certificate with her name as the mother of the child?

by James Nimmo

(OKLAHOMA CITY) Oklahoma State Representative Sally Kern, of gay terrorist and gun toting fame, as recently opined that "Homosexuality should be exposed and attacked". You can read more here http://tinyurl.com/luakva and here http://tinyurl.com/mhhxom .

She also thinks President Obama is not a true christian in that he's issued a GLBT Pride Proclamation for June, 2009 yet didn't make a big fuss over the National Day of Prayer back in early May, 2009. Only Sally Kern has the fax line to heavenly list.

The Kerns have two sons, one of whom (Nathan I think his name is) has followed the fundie biblical imperative to go forth, be fruitful and multiply by marrying a woman, lying with her, dispersing his seed, and begetting children.

The other son, Jesse, has merely gone forth to Iowa and kept his seed to himself, declaring himself in a Tulsa WORLD interview to be chaste for his god.
"First of all, no one's sexuality is anyone's business. It is not even my mother's business," he said. "I practice celibacy to give to my God," he said. ( http://tinyurl.com/39kpsq )
It would seem that indeed, Jesse Kern IS keeping his sexuality to himself, not even his own mother knows for sure. But that worries me.

If, and this is a big IF, Sally Kern has a gay family member, and she truly loves her own progeny as she has said in public interviews, and she is truly practicing christian values, wouldn't you think she'd be a tad warmer and fuzzier than to say homosexuality should be "exposed and attacked"?

What if that target to be "exposed and attacked" turns out to be a birth certificate with her name on it as the mother of the child?

I have no beef with any grown man or woman who chooses to be very private about their sexual orientation, regardless of their last name and who has no public power or position.

But I do have a difference of opinion with a ranting, gnashing, and foaming parent with an elected, tax-payed position who chooses to advocate and reference with violent verbs actions against my civil rights as an equal citizen of America.

With every additional pronouncement from Sally Kern, who is always willing to talk about her discomfort with diversity, I think she's finally found the bottom of her soul, but apparently Kern's soul is infinitely deep.

  1. From an Oklahoman atheist:

    Rep. Kern is an embarrassment to all of us in this state who take pride in being rational thinkers. I was appalled (though not surprised) to see that she trotted out the bogus quote attributed to James Madison about the Ten Commandments. That was exposed as untrue back in the nineties. Obviously, scholarship is not Rep. Kern's strong suit. Of course, fundamentalists like her can only see a blinkered view of the world, with her (godly) view standing in opposition to those (satanic) views of everyone else. Such simple folks react angrily toward those who advocate opinions that conflict with their black and white perception of things. That the alleged musings of a Bronze Age Sky God still dictate what millions of people think and do is a testimony to anti-intellectualis m that dominates much of American culture.

    As that sage philosopher Forrest Gump put it, "Stupid is as stupid does."
