• Robert Lemon, Oklahoma City: “I'm 82 years old. I'm the father of five children: three straights and two gays. And I love the gay children just as much as I do the straight children, and that's the way it's been in our family. We have no internal strife between people of different sexual orientation.”

• Eric Rogers, Yukon: “This proposed law could be construed to help those that would look to animism, polygamy, transvestite ... or even later, if you want to get crazy, convicts, molesters, liars or any other behavior choice.”

• Tom Vineyard, pastor of Windsor Hills Baptist Church in Oklahoma City: “Many homosexuals openly admit that they are pedophiles because they cannot actually reproduce. They resort to recruiting children. ... Folks, you're making a decision that will bring down God's judgment on your city if you vote in favor of this.”

• Scott Hamilton, pastor of Church of the Open Arms in Oklahoma City and executive director of Cimarron Alliance: “To couch in Christian terms these so-called statistics, I'll call them what they are. They are lies.”
