Oklahoma State Rep. Sally Kern told a talk show host that homosexuality is a bigger threat to the United States than terrorism.
She's also written a book criticizing the efforts of people like you and me to speak out against right-wing hate.
Now it's time to speak up again. Tell Oklahoma's governor and top legislative leaders to denounce Kern's remarks right away. We have to hold Kern accountable for her hate speech.

Recently, your colleague, Rep. Sally Kern, told a talk show host that homosexuality is a bigger threat to the United States than terrorism. She also blamed the AIDS epidemic on the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community.
What our elected officials say matters. Rep. Kern's private feelings towards homosexuality are one thing, but public statements that could potentially incite people to violence are completely over the line. Kern's comparison of homosexuality to terrorism is as offensive as it is dangerous.
I urge you to publicly denounce Rep. Kern's comments without delay.
