Rep. Perryman Advocates For Anti-Catholicism Plank of Oklahoma’s Constitution

In the very liberal publication, The Oklahoma Observer formerly/http://okobserver.net/pay-no-attention-to-that-man-behind-the-curtain/; Rep. David Perryman(Democrat-Chickasha) presses for Oklahoma to retain the bigoted language in our constitution known as “The Blaine Amendment”.
In some of the darker days of Oklahoma’s history, there were many anti Roman Catholic sentiments. These were nothing more than ignorant fears residing in the predominantly Democrat political environment.
This Summer, Oklahomans suffered some of the vestiges of that era, because we ignored our past errors and hid them, rather than confront the bigotry we had tolerated and promoted.
As we wrote in July, the Blaine Amendment language failed to be adopted to the US constitution. It was a blatant attempt to project the anti Catholic bias of many Americans.
