Guess What This RNC Delegate Thinks is a ‘Slap in the Face’ to Our Country’s Heritage?

“Personally I think it’s a slap in the face to our Christian heritage… our nation and… our state of Oklahoma,” she comments. “We are a conservative state, and I think that something like this is meant to be provocative, and it’s insulting to me.”

We don’t go to other countries or other places and demand that they be so accommodating. I don’t think that we should feel like we have to be,” she offers.

That’s Toni Calvey, a delegate to the RNC from Oklahoma.

Toni Calvey (right)

What’s she referring to that’s so offensive to her?

Did her state just mandate that churches have to marry gay couples on their premises? Did legislators just pass a law requiring churches to host worship services for other faiths?

Nope.

She’s mad because the Tulsa City Council is allowing atheist Dan Nerren to deliver an invocation at tonight’s meeting. Once. To ward off a lawsuit. And then they’ll go back to their routine of having invocation prayers recited by Christian after Christian.

Nerren’s presence is offensive to Calvey because she thinks the best form of government is one that’s of the Christians, by the Christians, and for the Christians. Atheists, Jews, and everyone else who doesn’t worship Jesus can go create their own country.
