CAIR: Oklahoma Governor Asked Not To Sign Anti-Muslim Bill

OKLAHOMA CITY, April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Oklahoma chapter of the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-OK) today called on Muslims and all other Americans who value civil liberties to contact Governor Mary Fallin to ask that she not sign a bill, the sponsors of which admit is designed to attack the religious principles of Islam.

CONTACT Governor Mary Fallin

EMAIL Governor Fallin:

The bill, HB 1060, is one of dozens of similar pieces of discriminatory and unconstitutional legislation that have been introduced in state legislatures nationwide. These legislative initiatives are promoted by those who seek to marginalize American Muslims and demonize Islam.

Bill Information for HB 1060

One of the primary sponsors of HB 1060, Rep. Sally Kern, has a history of making statements targeting minorities. In 2011, Kern was reprimanded by the Oklahoma House for disparaging women and ethnic minorities. As reported by the Oklahoman, "During a debate Wednesday night on the House of Representatives floor, Kern said minorities earn less than white people and women earn less than men because they don't work as hard and have less initiative."

Kern has expressed her view that all followers of Islam are a threat saying, "Gays are an even bigger threat than terrorism or Islam, which I think is a big threat."

Rep. Kern has argued that the bill does not single out Muslims or Islam. However, the bill's anti-Muslim genesis is clear.
