A Bible-thumper's "Proclamation for Morality"

Sally Kern, the godbot Republican Oklahoma representative who's already known as a remorseless homophobic bigot and an overall pearl-clutching religious zealot, has released a "Proclamation for Morality" which basically blames all of America's problems on abortion, porn, gays, divorce and an overall lack of religiosity:

WHEREAS, the people of Oklahoma have a strong tradition of reliance upon the Creator of the Universe; and

WHEREAS, we believe our economic woes are consequences of our greater national moral crisis; and

WHEREAS, this nation has become a world leader in promoting abortion, pornography, same sex marriage, sex trafficking, divorce, illegitimate births, child abuse, and many other forms of debauchery; and

WHEREAS, alarmed that the Government of the United States of America is forsaking the rich Christian heritage upon which this nation was built; and

WHEREAS, grieved that the Office of the president of these United States has refused to uphold the long held tradition of past presidents in giving recognition to our National Day of Prayer; and

WHEREAS, deeply disturbed that the Office of the president of these United States disregards the biblical admonitions to live clean and pure lives by proclaiming an entire month to an immoral behavior;

NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that we the undersigned elected officials of the people of Oklahoma, religious leaders and citizens of the State of Oklahoma, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world, solemnly declare that the HOPE of the great State of Oklahoma and of these United States, rests upon the Principles of Religion and Morality as put forth in the HOLY BIBLE

Note that her grand solutions for fixing it all are, as usual, praying and adhering to the moral codes from the Bible. Perhaps all of the US's problems would be fixed if we stuck closer to Deuteronomy? Just sayin' ...
