Crackpot watch

Posted By on Tue, Jun 30, 2009 at 9:09 PM

State Rep. Sally Kern, Arkansas's gift to Oklahoma, is at it again. The creationist homophobe who tried to pack heat into the Oklahoma capitol has a new crusade:

OKLAHOMA CITY — A state lawmaker is urging Oklahomans to sign a morality proclamation “to acknowledge the need for a national awakening of righteousness.”

Rep. Sally Kern, R-Oklahoma City, has called a press conference for noon Thursday on the first floor of the state Capitol to discuss the “Oklahoma Citizen’s Proclamation for Morality,” which may be sent to Gov. Brad Henry, President Barack Obama and the state’s congressional delegation.

“We believe our economic woes are consequences of our greater national moral crisis,” a draft of the proclamation states. “This nation has become a world leader in promoting abortion, pornography, same sex marriage, sex trafficking, divorce, illegitimate births, child abuse, and many other forms of debauchery.”
