Sally Kern's At It Again

You remember Sally Kern, right? She's a member of the state legislature in Oklahoma who caused a stir a few years ago when she asserted the Pittsburgh City Council was controlled by teh gayz.

She's at it again - but not about how Pittsburgh City Council's being controlled by teh gay agenda - but with this:
You know if you just look at it in practical terms, which has destroyed and ended the life of more people? Terrorism attack 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.
Ah, numbers. I love numbers.

But is the incessant Kern saying that because more people died of AIDS/HIV than terrorism that that means it's more of a threat to the US?

According to this paper, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, death by "sexual behavior" (and that's not just AIDS, by the way) barely makes it onto the list:

Perhaps the Kern would extend her analysis to its logical conclusion and declare that since more people are killed by death by firearms (or tobacco or alcohol or automobiles) that those things too, are more dangerous than terrorism.

Sally Kern - insanely scared of teh gay.

Hey, is it any surprise that she's associated with the American Legislative Exchange Council? The proof is found at her own website:
Sally’s memberships include Olivet Baptist Church, the Northwest Chamber of Commerce, Heart and Hand non-profit ministry, Eagle Forum, Frontier Country Republican Women’s Club, Advisory Board for the Master of Leadership Public Administration at Mid-America Christian University, Tri-Cities Republican Women’s Club, Oklahoma City Republican Women’s Club, and the American Legislative Exchange Council. She is, also, a board member of the Advisory Council for BOTT Radio, a member of the Board of Trustees of the Oklahoma School of Science and Mathematics, member of the Office of Personnel Management’s Employee Assistance Program Advisory Council, and member of the Advisory Board for HIRE (Help in Reaching Employment) at the Moore Norman Technology Center. Sally is also a member of the National Rifle Association (NRA).
Nope. Not a surprise at all.
