Oklahoma Rep. Sally Kern is blaming the country's economic crisis on the nation's immoral actions. KOCO reports
A Morality Proclamation introduced into the Oklahoma state legislature blames gays, porn and abortion for the nation's economic distress. Controversial and outspoken Sally Kern, Republican lawmaker from Oklahoma, is in the news again with a proposed Morality Proclamation for the state of Oklahoma. The document claims “abortion, pornography, same sex marriage, sex trafficking, divorce, illegitimate births, child abuse and many other forms of debauchery” is responsible for the country’s economic woes.
To rectify the problem, Kern's “Oklahoma Citizen’s Proclamation for Morality” suggests the following solution: “BE IT RESOLVED that we, the undersigned, humbly call upon Holy God, our Creator, Sustainer, and Redeemer, to have mercy on this nation, to stay His hand of judgment, and grant a national awakening of righteousness and Christian renewal as we repent of our great sin.”
Kern is no stranger to controversy. She is known for her anti-gay rhetoric and walking into the state capital with a semi-automatic handgun stashed in her purse. Kern is probably best known for her comparison of homosexuality to toe cancer, and her repeated claims that homosexuals are a greater threat to our nation than terrorism. Now she has ignited controversy once again with a document that blames America’s current economic crisis on “our greater national moral crisis.”
