What: Free Speech Rally for State Representative Sally Kern
When: Wednesday, April 2; 12:00pm Noon
Where: Rotunda of the Oklahoma State Building; 2300 N. Lincoln Blvd., Oklahoma City Oklahoma
CWA applauds Rep. Kern for continuing to be steadfast and resolute in this fight against the homosexual agenda and for shedding light on the threat it poses to our nation. Rep. Kern has been quoted as saying that the homosexual agenda is dangerous "because it destroys the basic moral fiber of this nation, which is traditional marriage and the traditional family." She couldn't be more right.
Matt Barber, CWA's Policy Director for Cultural Issues, said, "There are certainly those who hate Rep. Kern. They've made that perfectly clear with vicious personal attacks and even death threats. But millions of Americans proudly stand alongside Sally Kern and say, 'Thank you. Thank you for boldly standing your ground and for unapologetically defending Biblical Truth.' They intended to make an example of her. They have, but not in the way they had hoped. She has set an example for millions of believers around the world. Her courage and refusal to deviate from God's unequivocal condemnation of sexual immorality is serving to galvanize and embolden others. People say, 'Well Sally Kern wasn't intimidated, why should I be?'"
CWA of Oklahoma State Director, Linda Caswell, said "Rep. Kern has exercised her right to free speech and has spoken boldly about the effects of homosexuality on our families and on our nation. We strongly encourage everyone to come to the rally and show your support for Rep. Kern. Let others know that we will not back down from taking a Biblical stand on the moral issues facing our state and our nation today."
Concerned Women for America is the nation's largest public policy women's organization.
