Americans United for Separation of Church & State,
Oklahoma City Chapter, Announces 2nd Annual Legislative Preview

(Oklahoma City) The Oklahoma City Chapter of Americans United for Separation of Church & State will hold its second annual Oklahoma Legislative Preview on Saturday, January 29, 2011 in the State Senate Chamber, Oklahoma Capitol Building, located in Oklahoma City.

Convening at 9:30 am, this event previews bills submitted by both Houses of the Oklahoma Legislature that involve the use of public tax money to advance religious viewpoints that could violate the state and federal Constitutional prohibitions against mixing religious doctrine with secular government. The event will conclude at 11:30 am.

The language and expenditures of these bills will be reviewed and discussed in an open meeting with all interested citizens invited to participate with questions and comments.

Sponsors of the selected bills will be invited to speak briefly about each topic with questions from the audience encouraged.

Please note that access to the Senate Chamber will be through the west security entrance of the State Capitol. Ample free parking and handicapped facilities are available.

  1. “Grassroots” informational meetings, that’s what these two events are about.

    Oklahoma politics has gone “off the deep end” with its mixing of religious dogma and government authority. It’s going to be hard work.

    We have to go back to the basics. We’re back to “one on one” reminding and re-teaching Oklahomans of the value of the “Separation of Church and State principle.”

    Hopefully, many Oklahomans will take advantage of these events. They are both worth the time and effort to attend and become better informed.

    The Chapter is to be commended for its efforts at promoting and defending the “separation” principle.
