Gov. Fallin on Ten Commandments Monument

Oklahoma's Ten Commandment Monument

Oklahoma’s Ten Commandment Monument

Governor Mary Fallin today released the following statement regarding Oklahoma’s Ten Commandments monument, which will remain at the Oklahoma State Capitol while legal appeals and potential legislative and constitutional changes are considered:

“The Ten Commandments monument was built to recognize and honor the historical significance of the Commandments in our state’s and nation’s systems of laws. The monument was built and maintained with private dollars. It is virtually identical to a monument on the grounds of the Texas State Capitol which the United States Supreme Court ruled to be permissible.  It is a privately funded tribute to historical events, not a taxpayer funded endorsement of any religion, as some have alleged.

Speak up and stop the lynch mob

Sir Tim Hunt

Sir Tim Hunt

Professor Sir Tim Hunt had won every honor in his field, from Fellowship of the Royal Society to the Nobel Prize. But last month, the pioneering biochemist was dismissed from his post at University College, London (UCL). Why? Because, speaking at a lunch to celebrate female scientists in Seoul, he had introduced his remarks with a clumsy joke about finding it hard to work with women in the laboratory because he fell in love with them and they cried.
