Rep. Sally Kern, the Oklahoma lawmaker who claimed that homosexuality "is just destroying this nation" has been advised by Oklahoma Gov. Brad Henry to "cool the rhetoric."
Henry made his comments today, saying that his religious beliefs teach him to be tolerant of diverse lifestyles and viewpoints.
Meanwhile, the OSBI is investigating death threats against Kern, who has been roundly criticized for her tape recorded remarks that claimed homosexuality is a greater threat to the nation than terrorism.
"Think before you speak," Henry said. "Oklahomans have love and tolerance for all people.
"I don't think [her rhetoric] represents Oklahoma," the governor said.
For Oklahoma's sake, let's hope he's right.
