Biggest Threat to America? Just Ask Rep. Kern

In your opinion, what is the single most important problem facing America today? The environment? Religious extremism? Poverty and the economy? There are many defensible choices and compelling arguments can be made for each. However, the usual litany of problems pales in comparison to one, at least it does if you were to ask Rep. Sally Kern (R-OK)

Recorded during a meeting without her knowledge, Rep. Kern stated,
I honestly think it’s [homosexuality] the biggest threat our nation has, even more so than terrorism or Islam.
That's right - forget the terror alerts and bring on the new color-coded warning system for "the gay." I can see it now, Homeland Security interrupting your favorite TV show to broadcast the latest code pink warning.

Homosexuality is worse than terrorism, huh? And why is that exactly? Is it the gay suicide bombings, the sabotage of government facilities, the biochemical weapons programs, what? Or maybe it is just because they would like the right to marry.
They want to get them into the government schools so they can indoctrinate them.

…They are going after our young children, as young as two years of age, to try to teach them that the homosexual lifestyle is an acceptable lifestyle.
Yep, the danger is tolerance. The real threat is that our children might learn that homosexuals are to be neither hated nor feared. And why would that be such a terrible thing? Other than signaling the collapse of America's Republican Party, I'm not sure what dire consequence is expected. And if the Republican Party cannot be sustained without hatred and religiously-inspired bigotry, then I say good riddance.
