Oklahoma City’s former Mayor and KFOR’s “Flashpoint” talk show co-host, Kirk Humphreys said on the program that, “if (homosexuality) is OK, then it’s OK for everybody and quite frankly it’s OK for men to sleep with little boys if it’s OK,” during a discussion about sexual assault allegations in Congress.
Wow. This is absolutely unacceptable.
Planned Parenthood Great Plains Votes is shocked that in 2017, someone with such backwards, bigoted views would be given a platform as prestigious as Flashpoint. This kind of hate speech should not be acceptable from anyone, but especially not from an authority figure.
Here’s what you can do.
PPGPV is joining coalition partners and Oklahomans across the state to demand that there be serious consequences for Mayor Humphreys’ actions.
Our friends at Freedom Oklahoma are asking you to follow this link and send a letter to KFOR asking that they force a formal apology from Humphrey or demand his resignation from the Flashpoint program. You can also direct your letter to Governor Mary Fallin and the University of Oklahoma’s Vice President for University Governance, Chris Purcell, asking that Mayor Humphreys resign from the OU Board of Regents.
Oklahomans celebrate diversity because we know it is what makes us strong. Kirk Humphreys needs to take a step back from public life and get reacquainted with actual Oklahoman values.
Planned Parenthood Great Plains Votes stands with the LGBTQ community. We see you and respect you - just the way you are.
