This is from an email sent out by OU Zoology professor Dr. Victor Hutchison of Oklahomans For Excellence in Science Education:
As expected, House Bill 2633, which contains Rep. Sally Kern’s “Religious Viewpoints Anti-discrimnation Act,” passed a House floor vote May 12 on a vote of 70 to 28 and will now go to the Governor. Please call or send a message to Governor Henry to veto this bill! If you have already sent an e-mail, then make a phone call, or if you called, please also send an e-mail. We need to be sure that Gov. Henry understands that there is strong opposition to this egregious bill.
This will be our last chance to kill this awful bill that would allow religion into public schools beyond that already allowed. A flood of messages opposing the bill might well convince the Governor of the problems such a bill would have in discouraging economic development in high tech/med tech industries. The bill would again portray Oklahoma as a backward state. Messages can be short – just express your strong opposition to the bill and ask for the Governor to exercise his veto for the good of the State!
