Oklahoma State Representative Sally Kern has said it's hateful to deny gay people can change their sexuality, RightWingWatch.org reported.

The 64-year-old Kern, who is best known for saying gay folks are the “biggest threat our nation has” at a 2008 gathering of Republicans, joined American Family Association (AFA) President Tim Wildmon on American Family Radio to promote her recent book The Stoning of Sally Kern, in which she discusses the criticism she received for opposing gay rights.

When Wildmon playfully poked Kern, reminding her that as Christians they are called to have compassion, Kern responded: “To me what is hateful is when those people who say, 'You're born this way. There's no hope in change. You're stuck in this, deal with it,' that is hate. There's no hope in that.”

Later Kern, the wife of a Baptist minister, added that gay men and women were leading the movement to “tear down the moral fiber of America.”

“We're losing our freedom of conscience. And if the homosexuals get what they want, and as you said it's not just homosexuality, it's immorality or adultery, all of that, but in my opinion the homosexual movement is the tip of the spear. They're the ones who right now are beating down the door, have their foot in the door, trying to tear down the moral fiber of America. We have to stand up to that. The reason it's the tip of the spear you don't see 'Adulterers Victory Fund' out there trying to promote adultery. God's people got to stand up to this.”

Last year, Brittany Novotny, a transgender woman, attempted to unseat Kern.
