OKLAHOMA (KFOR) – A threat was made by a state lawmaker, saying if he were not Christian he would light himself on fire.

The words came after a proposed bill that would give a raise to Supreme Court justices.

Representative Calvey says, if given the chance, he’d say it all over again.

He wanted to make it clear; his problem is with the Supreme Court justices who, he says, are not doing enough to prevent Oklahoma women from getting abortions.

“If I were not a Christian, and didn’t have a prohibition against suicide, I’d walk across the street and douse myself in gasoline and set myself on fire!” Rep. Kevin Calvey said during a heated debate at the Capitol.

He watched the video at the KFOR newsroom for the first time.

“To protest the evil that is going on over there, killing, giving the death penalty, to the will of the people and the will of this body and protecting the least among us,” Calvey continued during the debate.

The debate was sparked about SB 548 that would give a raise to supreme court justices.

When asked if he regretted those words, Calvey said “No, not one bit, I think that I’m hopeful to draw attention to this serious issue.”

“The problem is, our state Supreme Court has killed every law going before it that is designed to protect women and babies from the predatory abortion industry,” Calvey said.

      Abortion is nothing to laugh about. It is murder, pure and simple. If you two think that it is funny then you both are psychopaths.

      2 million children are terminated each year. Joking about the death of one human is of questionable morals. Making light of Abortion and a gentlemen conviction and statement is demonic.
      The United States allows religious freedoms. Not believing is one of those. Believing is another. You have a right to state your opinion of non-belief. And this person has his right to state his. However when you go mocking and using junior high humor you’ve lowered yourself to the sewer. you’re covered in it.
      God’s law doesn’t change just because Man’s does.
