Oklahoma State Rep. Sally Kern insists homosexuality is more dangerous to America than terrorism, media watchdog 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 Americans for Truth About Homosexuality's Peter LaBarbera to promote her recent book The Stoning of Sally Kern, in which she discusses the criticism she received for opposing gay rights.

During the radio broadcast, Kern, the wife of a Baptist minister, attempted to explain her earlier remarks.

“You know if you just look at it in practical terms, which has destroyed and ended the life of more people? Terrorism attacks here in America or HIV/AIDS? In the last twenty years, fifteen to twenty years, we've had maybe three terrorist attacks on our soil with a little over 5,000 people regrettably losing their lives. In the same time frame, there have been hundreds of thousands who have died because of having AIDS. So which one's the biggest threat? And you know, every day our young people, adults too, but especially our young people, are bombarded at school, in movies, in music, on TV, in the mall, in magazines, they're bombarded with 'homosexuality is normal and natural.' It's something they have to deal with every day. Fortunately we don't have to deal with a terrorist attack every day, and that's what I mean,” Kern said.

Kern also reiterated previous remarks that homosexuality will “tear down the moral fiber of this nation.” (The audio is embedded in the right panel of this page.)
