Rep. Sally Kern and Rep. James Lankford give us yet another example of their bigotry and paranoia.
Recently, Lankford and state Rep. Sally Kern, a fellow Republican from Bethany, were at one of the congressman’s town hall meetings. Kern asked Lankford if he could check into a conference that dealt with substance abuse and mental health issues.
Kern went on to claim the conference was actually a front for gays to push the homosexual agenda.
“They are going around the nation, they just did this here in Oklahoma, December 7th, and having conferences that are educational,” Kern said. “About 2 percent of the conference is dealing with substance abuse and mental health issues. Ninety-eight percent is doing indoctrination or pushing the homosexual agenda. This is what our president is doing. He has a federal agency doing it. Our state, the Oklahoma Mental Health and Substance Abuse Department, put this conference on and is indoctrinating our citizens who are totally against this. Is there any way you can look into this?”
Lankford replied: “Oh yes, sure. You know I can absolutely get a chance to take a look at it. We’ll start the process, try to see what we can do to identify it. Some of those things you have the power of humiliation where you can raise it and put in sunlight. They love functioning in the dark. You put some sunlight on it, that does help. But, we’ll see. I’m glad to take that on.”
