Oklahoma City group wants state legislators to keep church, state matters separate

Measures that would grant “personhood” status to a human embryo, make it illegal for public money to go to Planned Parenthood and other abortion rights groups, and allow religion in public schools should be defeated or not even taken up, a group of concerned residents said Saturday.
“Our feeling is that the best way to maintain religious freedom for all persons is to maintain separation,” said John Loghry, chapter president. “A lot of this legislation introduces religious bias or otherwise imposes a specific religious viewpoint into our civil law.”
