Yukon, OK - In an effort to connect in a micro regional way with their fanbase like their parent club Rayo Vallecano, Rayo OKC will focus on espousing the values and viewpoints of their regional neighborhood of Yukon, Oklahoma.
The club announced that it will be for defining marriage as the union between a man and a woman, for the death penalty, for gun ownership rights and for a limited government with no social assistance.
"The viewpoints of some living in the Yukon area may be antithetical to our own belief system in Vallecano, but we must service those residents of Yukon and Canadian County," stated owner Raúl Martín Presa. "The demographics in Yukon are 87% white and 67% Republican. As such, we are having a defense of marriage day in May 2016 where Rayo Oklahoma City will have a 'marriage for Men and Women only' booth as well as inviting televangelist Kenneth Copeland from Lubbock to minister to our players and fans. Over 1 million people in Oklahoma voted in 2004 to define marriage as existing only between a man and a woman. Even if that was invalidated in 2014, we must reflect the values of our areas. After all, recent polling still puts the issue about 66% against legal same sex marriage in Oklahoma."
Rayo OKC has also announced a "Jesus is God" camp with players and fans ministering to the hopeless and the destitute in Canadian County.
"We hope that our efforts to integrate ourselves into the neighborhood will be appreciated," stated Sean Jones, co-owner of Rayo OKC. "While we may not always agree with our constituents, it is important that their viewpoint feel appreciated. Just like in Vallecano where they are anti-facist, and have messages of solidarity, here in Yukon we will have messages of solidarity with our local high school football team and will be strictly anti-carpet bagging big city liberals from Oklahoma City moving here."
