Maybe if Sally Kern were stoned, in the current sense of the word, she’d make more sense. She’s said things like gays are a bigger threat than Islam, and other racist and homophobic comments, the most recent of which is comparing gays to terrorists. Now she says if she is so hurt by hearing people disagree with her, and that by doing so you’re stoning God. And she can’ believe that people accuse her of being hateful:

…they accuse me of being hateful, and I never once said anything hateful. Such hate expressed against the Lord and against his word and then the way they, I mean these people, I believe these people, I believe scripture teaches this, they’re deceived and to me the real hate is from those people who say, ‘you’re born this way and you can’t change, deal with it…

As I sat reading the e-mails, each one hit me like a sharp stone, breaking my heart and filling my eyes with tears. I had never experienced such hate or seen such vulgarity in my life. The hurt seemed to cut right into my soul. It was not just that I was being hurt, but that the truth of God’s Word was being stoned and desecrated.
