I'm lead to believe that the raving lunatic who is clearly behind this is this woman (pictured) Sally Kern. Who, reportedly said this"
Kern does what a lot of the more self-righteous theists do by throwing a lot of crazy ideas (that make most conspiracy theories look plausible by comparison), tossing them into a big pot and stirring it up until anyone equipped to respond is so baffled they don't know where to begin.
How did someone like Kern get into power? Who's voting for these types of people? What type of person is Kern?
Kern is a moral entrepreneur. She takes the opportunity to recast America's ever-evolving culture as fear. It's people like Kern standing in the doorway and blocking up the halls of social progress, but there's more to her "Good Reason" than just her convictions. The malicious ulterior motive is certainly her hunt for votes and her own success by the means that have made her successful throughout life — fear mongering and moral panic.
The harm done by Kern and others who profit off fear is abundant. Her approach is McCarthyesque and is bound to lead to more restrictions, more state and church integration, encourage more hate crimes, control thoughts and diminish minds.
