Lawmaker urges ‘proclamation for morality’
Religious leaders and elected officials are expected to gather at the state Capitol to sign an "Oklahoma Citizen’s Proclamation for Morality” next month. The group will read the proclamation and then sign the document at noon July 2 on the first floor of the Capitol. In a news release, Rep. Sally Kern, R-Oklahoma City, said the proclamation is a call to remember and return Oklahoma to biblical values.

It is unconstitutional.
It is a monstrous insult to those of us who have earned the self-confidence to exercise our own faculties of independent moral judgement - as every individual human being must do to survive as a human being.
Not to mention that it is fraudulent to claim that Christianity has any kind of monopoly on morality.
Listen, Sally: I've got my own mind. Keep your damn hands off!
