Group says it will lead a protest against Michael Sam on Sunday in Arlington.

Thousands of right wing Christians plan to demonstrate Sunday in Arlington to protest the Dallas Cowboys signing of Michael Sam to the practice squad.

“We had planned to protest in St. Louis on Sunday. Now we’ll rally in Dallas instead,” says Jack Burkman, who’s leading the group of like-minded Christians. “We cannot just stand idly by as Christian values and morals are trampled. We will do whatever we can to preserve family values in this country.”

Burkman is a D.C. top lobbyist who rallies for Conservative causes. He’s been on Capitol Hill pushing legislation that would ban openly gay athletes from playing in the NFL.

A massive protest was planned for St. Louis. But that changed when the Rams cut Sam from the team.

By releasing Sam, the Rams thwarted a boycott that could have cost the team tens of millions of dollars in lost revenue, Burkman says.

Burkman’s group boasts a membership roster of more than 3.62 million in 41 states.

Burkman says Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is responsible for the hiring of Sam and he will hold Jones accountable.

“Jerry Jones has betrayed American values, Christian values, and his own city’s values. The people of Dallas–and Christians all across this land–are about to make him pay a huge financial price. The Cowboys are no longer America’s team.”
