Gay-bashing in Oklahoma

I just learned about this on Firedoglake:

Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett is eyeing the governor's mansion for the 2010 race, and he's busy making allies on far right. Among his backroom buddies: Steve Kern, pastor of the Olivet Baptist Church and husband of State representative Sally Kern.

According to
Gossipboy.com, in a bid to court conservatives, the duo seem to be teaming up to rid the state library system of all gay and lesbian materials, as well as those their church-based philosophies find objectionable.

Oh goodness. How depressing. Well, that's Oklahoma, for you. (Don't I know it; I live here.)
