(CNS News) – Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt (R) said one of his favorite bills was the “Save Women in Sports Act” because it prevented biological males from competing against real women in sports. The governor made his remarks at the Family Research Council’s Pray Vote Stand Summit in Atlanta, Ga., last week.
“It basically just says we’re not going to let boys compete against girls in girls’ sports,” said the governor. “We’re going to protect girls’ sports.”
He further explained: “The Washington Post, they interviewed me and they were like, ‘Gov., you signed this controversial piece of legislation.’ And I am like, ‘Well, first off, it’s not controversial in Oklahoma. Okay? We know the difference between a boy and a girl. And we’re simply going to protect girls’ sports.’”
“There is a difference,” said Stitt. “Men are biologically different then women. So how is it fair that a female track athlete or a swimmer or a golfer has been training their whole life to somehow lose a college scholarship? It’s not fair and we’re not going to let it happen in the state of Oklahoma.”
The Save Women’s Sports Coalition issued a paper that names every male who has competed in women’s sports as a “woman."
Their website shows the science of how men and women are different – outlining the difference through charts and other means, Save Women’s Sports backs up the comments that Stitt made.
The Pray Vote Stand Summit held is a rebrand from the Values Voter Summit that used to be held every year in D.C. Sam Brownback, George Barna, Mike Huckabee, and other key conservatives take the stage every year to inform and motivate conservative Christians, and to remind Americans that they still have a voice in this world and can make a difference.
On its website for the summit, the FRC states, “We will equip and encourage believers as we discuss current cultural issues impacting faith, family, and freedom and evaluate these through the lens of a biblical worldview.
“We will cover important topics like protecting the unborn, the importance of the nuclear family, domestic and international religious liberty, and our education system as well as ways we can act and influence these for the benefit of our families, churches, communities and nation.”
