OKLAHOMA CITY, April 1, 2008 ( – Representative Sally Kern, a devout Christian and Oklahoma legislator, has been targeted by some of the nation’s largest and most radical homosexual groups, she has received over 27,000 vulgar, hate filled e-mails, she has been verbally ambushed by homosexual radicals at public meetings, but she hasn’t backed down.  At noon tomorrow various pro-family and groups and individual Christians will join over 50 pastors at the State Capitol in Okalahoma City to rally in her support.

  Kern is represented by the Thomas More Law Center, a national Christian public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  She came under fire from radical homosexual groups on account of statements made at a Republican club meeting.  Rep. Kern expressed her concern that the homosexual agenda was destroying our nation, and that young school children were being indoctrinated into believing that the homosexual life style is normal.  Her comments were taped and appeared as a You Tube audio clip.

  Aside from the numerous local pastors supporting her, Concerned Women for America (CWA), American Family Association and the Eagle Forum of which Rep. Kern is a member, have come to her aid.

  Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Law Center, commented, “Radical homosexual groups have done all they could to intimidate her, yet she has not backed down.  She is truly a courageous Christian woman.  And it’s gratifying to see other Christian groups come to her aid.”

  CWA applauds 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. 

  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?’”
