Oklahoma State Rep. Sally KernAn Oklahoma City theater company is under attack because it will present a play by gay playwright Paul Rudnick in December.

State Rep. Dan Fisher belongs to a group called “Patriot Pastors.” As a result of his efforts, the theater company has already lost $5,000 in funding from the Oklahoma Arts Council.

Another member of the group is Steve Kern, husband of state Rep. Sally Kern, the notorious homophobe in the Oklahoma House who blamed this paper for “bashing” her.

Despite the loss of funding, the Oklahoma City Theatre Company plans to present The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told at the Civic Center. The Civic Center said it does not censor shows and will host the production.

And if you haven’t already had enough of Sally Kern in Oklahoma state government, her husband has announced that he is running for state Senate.
