I sent this letter to (R) Sally Kern, District 84 of Oklahoma regarding this video conversation:
I know that this will never get to Ms. Kern, however, I still have to voice my opinion as a member of this country in which Ms. Kern's anti-gay rhetoric, along with her "jump on the bandwagon" tactics of the GOP are killing our youth today and tomorrow. As a supposed "Christian" there is nothing in the bible that backs up her mis-statements concerning hating gay people, nor do any polls across this country support her statements that we've "drifted away from the Constitution." Her hate-filled speeches and rantings are those of a bully in the eyes of a young adult who is struggling with gender identity (which almost every young person faces at some point in their young lives) and sets a very poor and misleading example for others that it is okay to bully, murder and hate someone because they are different than her beliefs. She has a responsibility as an elected official of the people in her district to be accountable for her words and actions and must be held to much higher standards than a member of the community. STOP THE HATE and try walking in the shoes of a young person who is being nullied in school. Find out for yourself how much it hurts and destroys their self-esteem. It's time to be held accountable for your actions!
