WASHINGTON, April 2 /Christian Newswire/ -- Upwards of 3,000 people gathered today for the rally at the Oklahoma State Capitol in support of Rep. Sally Kern (R-Oklahoma City), 2,000 reportedly spilling over onto all levels of the Rotunda, with 1,000 more unable to enter the capitol building. Rep. Kern has stood firm in the face of harassment and threats over statements she made regarding the homosexual agenda. Concerned Women for America (CWA) joined with over 50 pastors who sponsored the event in support of Rep. Kern’s Biblical stand.
Matt Barber, CWA's Policy Director for Cultural Issues, said, "This astronomical show of support for Rep. Sally Kern today sends a strong message. People with traditional values who value God's design for human sexuality will not be intimidated and bullied into silence. Political correctness can never trump truth. Sally Kern stood for truth, and she was hated for it. She was persecuted for Christ, but the Body of Christ was there to lift her up. Sally was faithful to God, and He was faithful to her in return. This is a great day for all who love righteousness."
CWA of Oklahoma State Director Linda Caswell said, "This is an awesome experience. We had a fantastic turnout and a fantastic message. Rep. Kern and her husband spoke a message of forgiveness, redemption and hope through Jesus Christ. This is a historic moment for Oklahoma."
