Which is More of a Threat to The USA, Gays or Terrorism?

dustbury.com: Threat assessment Well it seems that at least one Republican in Congress, Rep. Sally Kern (R-OKC), and I would bet good money that it is more than one, thinks gays are more of a threat. Right.

First I have to say that I love it when people ignorant of history make statements they consider to be fact.
Studies show, no society that has totally embraced homosexuality has lasted for more than, you know, a few decades.
Here's a clue about history: The Ottoman Empire lasted for several centuries. (From the late 13th Century to the early 20th Century) During most of that time, homosexuality was accepted as part of life. That didn't change until the early 19th Century when Turkey started to take on Western Europe's values. Now I think that is more than "a few decades." But then bigots like to ignore facts that disagree with their prejudice.

Go take a look at a slap-down.

With Republicans like this in Congress the party, I am more tempted every day to vote for some other party. [via Tam] Update... it seems they haven't sent her to Washington, but are keeping her in the state... my bad.
