Tulsa Rally To Push For OU Regent Kirk Humphreys' Resignation

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

Some Tulsans plan to hold a rally Tuesday calling for OU Board of Regents member Kirk Humphreys to resign.

Oklahomans for Equality is calling for Humphreys' resignation.  The group has also organized a rally to voice their concerns about what Humphreys said during a political talk show in OKC.

"Is homosexuality right or wrong - it's not relative," Humphreys said. "There's a right and wrong; you just said it. So it's either right or wrong, and if it's OK then it's OK from everyone.

"Quite frankly, it's OK for men to sleep with little boys if it's OK."

The group says its members are appalled by his remarks. Their protest rally starts at 5 p.m. on the southwest corner sidewalk at 41st and Yale. That is next to the OU-Tulsa campus.

Humphreys has issued an apology saying "I regret that my comments,  regarding homosexuality were not clear and led some people to believe that I was equating homosexuality with pedophilia. That was not my intention or desire."

OU President David Boren released a statement saying "Regent Humphreys was speaking as an individual and not on behalf of the university or me."
