Sally Kern has issued a statement regarding the feedback she's gotten from her speech. (here)
And once again, I'm sending email. Not that I expect it to make any difference what-so-ever, but merely because it feels good to bark back:
Beliefs do change over time.
Take USURY for example: "Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him." - Ezekial 18:13
It's one of the few things that actually caused Jesus to fly into a violent rage, knocking over tables, kicking money lenders out of the temple. It's not only that they were in the wrong place... what they were doing was deemed a sin, period.
Only centuries later was usury re-defined as "loaning money and charging excessive interest". (A change that was no doubt dearly paid for by money lenders.)
So, how many of the constituents (you know, the ones you personally represented with your hate-speech) were left homeless because of the sub-prime mortgage crisis? How many have gone bankrupt, indebted to consumer lenders because of medical expenses that their insurers refused to cover?
The 'money lenders' have completely taken over our great country and are squeezing it dry.
And yet there you are... wasting time attempting to keep suppressed and invisible the most attacked and non-retaliatory minority in American. Way to go.
You want to get biblical on something? Go attack the people that are immorally extorting Americans with unfair lending practices.
Picking on gays is for cowards. Do something important with your life and attack the REAL sinners: the money lenders, the banks, the insurance agencies, the credit card companies, ...
Or have you chosen to represent them instead, because they helped you get elected?
If so, that makes your 'moral' position utterly empty and revoltingly hypocritical.
