More than 1,000 supporters of state Rep. Sally Kern cheered on the outspoken critic of homosexuality Wednesday at the state Capitol.
Kern said she stands by her remarks, noting that God loves all people, regardless of their sins. She said the problem is when sinners do not strive to change, although she did not directly refer to homosexuals.
"Let me tell you why I will not and cannot apologize for my comments," said Kern. "First, I believe God's word. When God calls something a sin, then that tells us it's a sin."
Really? I have to wonder then whether Representative Kern eats shellfish or wears clothing made of mixed fabrics. Surely not, since she's such an obeisant, fawning slave to god's words, right?
Of course, the Bible never once says that homosexuality is a sin, so the point is really moot.
