In a rare interview given to Concerned Women for American's Matt Barber and posted on the CWA website, Oklahoma State Representative Sally Kern stands by her recently revealed anti-gay speech.

Sally Kern stands by her speech delivered to a group of about 50 Republicans in Oklahoma saying she would have delivered the same speech even if she had been aware she was being recorded.

Kern says of her much-publicized line - “I honestly think it's [homosexuality] the biggest threat our nation has, even more so than terrorism or Islam” - that she was simply using a metaphor.

“I was just using a metaphor, just trying to make a point so that my fellow Republican colleagues and especially the church would wake up and realize that they [gays] are a threat to the moral fiber of this nation.”

Matt Barber, CWA's Policy Director for Cultural Issues, is joined by Peter LaBarbera, President of Americans for Truth, in the interview. Concerned Women for America works for the advancement of Christian values in policy making, while Americans for Truth is a group devoted to “exposing and countering the homosexual activist agenda.”

Kern's speech was posted on the video sharing website YouTube on March 7th by The Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund, a gay advocacy group that works to elect openly GLBT people . In the speech, the Republican representative asserts that gays are dangerous to America, are indoctrinating young children to accept the homosexual lifestyle, and are infiltrating city councils. Kern was unaware that she was being recorded.

In the interview, Kern denies Internet stories that one of her two sons, Jesse, is gay. Barber asks, “If your son were homosexual, would you love him any less?” “Oh, listen, I would love my son, I'm proud of him,” she answers. Barber then asks, “Do you hate homosexuals?” “No sir, I do not. I disagree with them,” she responds.
