Same ol’, same ol’


Letters to the Editor

Douglas Mock, Joseph Thai and Tom Boyd
Two “new” bills filed with the state Legislature recently are dog-eared twin parcels of anti-science boilerplate based on model language from the creationist Discovery Institute (in Seattle). This is an annual rite of winter: Legislative sponsors proclaim laudable goals (“academic freedom” and “critical thinking”) with a wink and nod that fool no one except perhaps innocent schoolchildren. The goal is to promote the teaching of religion as science in public school science classrooms.

Down with science


CFN

Gazette staff
Science homework might be a little easier for Oklahoma students in the near future, depending on how you look at it. House Bill 1674 by Rep. Gus Blackwell, R-Laverne, would allow students to turn in schoolwork that challenges “controversial topics” such as “biological evolution, the chemical origins of life, global warming and human cloning” without adverse consequences, such as a pesky bad grade. It also will force teachers to come up with more creative ways of handling such subjects.

Consistent religious beliefs


Letters to the Editor

Nancy Roche
Isn’t it ironic that Hobby Lobby is using religious beliefs as an excuse to not participate in the health care mandate, but it doesn’t hesitate to import all that garbage they sell us from China, where women are still strongly encouraged to have abortions?

House party

Oklahoma Christian radio station The House FM celebrates 20 years on the air.


Features

Rachael Cervenka
In 1992, tax accountant Doyle Brewer was inspired to bring Christian radio to northern Oklahoma. He didn’t have a clue what he was doing, but he felt called to this mission. Despite modest beginnings, his vision transformed into something much bigger than he ever dreamed.

KKNG of kings

The transformation of KKNG to religious radio is just the latest gain for the Oklahoma Catholic Broadcasting Network.


Features

Jerry Bohnen
Larry Sousa had wanted to work in radio news since he was a child. Things didn’t work out that way for the 71-year-old — until now. Decades later, the Norman resident and devout Catholic isn’t just working in radio, but Catholic radio: Oklahoma City’s KKNG 97.3 FM.

It's a blessing

Oklahoma’s Episcopal Diocese provides materials allowing for the blessing of same-sex unions.


News

Greg Horton
The Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma last week published documents that allow for the blessing of same-sex unions in Oklahoma. Bishop Ed Konieczny said the materials — which include guidelines for clergy and an approved liturgy (order of service) — clearly state that the union is not a legally binding ceremony.

Crossing Obamacare

Hobby Lobby's legal battle against the Affordable Care Act has made it a darling of evangelical Christians nationwide.


News

Peter Wright
For supporters of Hobby Lobby, the fluorescent bulbs that light store aisles have perhaps become a beacon of righteousness. The Oklahoma City-based chain stepped into the political fray late last year with a controversial lawsuit against the Affordable Care Act (ACA), a case that has garnered praise from some of the most prominent evangelical figures in the country.
