Sally Kern, a member of the Oklahoma State House of Representatives came to National attention in early 2008 after clips from a speech given before a group of Republicans was posted on YouTube generated more than 2 million hits. This resulted in a surge of hate mail and media coverage.
“The Stoning of Sally Kern” is written in an effort to challenge the reader to recognize the principles that have made America great and to advance a Christian world view that motivates them to defend these principles.
The book includes the full text of:
• The Transcript of the January 10, 2008 speech • The Oklahoma Citizens’ Proclamation for Morality • A Pictorial review of some of the highlights of Kern’s activities • Relevant Thoughts and Quotes from America’s God and Country: Encyclopedia of Quotations, compiled by William J. Federer • A Resource List of Suggested Reading
Kern’s writing is compelling. She writes with a fervency of conviction. Her book will be welcomed by readers involved in the “battle” she describes, thought extreme by other firm believers, less vocal in their stance, and ridiculed by opponents of her cause. Kern’s experience is a reminder of the responsibility, impact and influence that go with being in the political arena. Misinformation leads to misunderstanding.
I received a complimentary review copy from the publisher. My review reflects my personal observations and opinions. As Reviewed for Midwest Book Review.
