Locusts Discovery Institute Descends on Oklahoma

Discovery's John West tells the Baptist Press, “we have a model academic freedom bill that we support that protects the rights of teachers and students to discuss scientific criticisms of evolution.”

The bill has been introduced in Alabama and Oklahoma.

"Last year," says West, "it passed the Oklahoma House of Representatives by an overwhelming [and bipartisan] margin, but the Democrat-controlled Senate denied it a vote.”

The Oklahoma Senate is now going to be tied between Republicans and Democrats, news reports indicate, so West said it’s possible that the academic freedom bill will be reintroduced and get a vote in both chambers.
