    A city councilwoman is asking homeowners in an Oklahoma college town to rename a street honoring a prominent former university professor and Ku Klux Klan member. Norman Councilwoman Breea Clark has posted an online petition asking residents to help change the name of DeBarr Avenue.

The bill would prohibit discriminatory abortions based on an unborn baby’s genetic abnormalities and hold abortion practitioners who violate the legislation liable.

    A proposal which would force women to get permission from their sexual partner to allow them to have an abortion has passed the first hurdle in Oklahoma. The bill would mean women needed written consent from a man for a doctor to carry out a termination. The bill's author, state legislator Justin Humphrey, who has described pregnant women as "hosts", said it would give the father a "say-so". Critics say it degrades women. The fact Oklahoma lawmakers decided to move the measure toward a full vote by the legislature comes at a time the anti-abortion movement is growing bolder under...

The man tried to run but Peek grabbed him and took him to the ground. “I was able to take...

The reaction of the OU administration was swift and draconian. The offending students were expelled without due process and the entire SAE house was immediately shuttered. Legal scholars, writing in the Washington Post and USA Today, described the university's actions as a violation of the student's First Amendment rights. As Eugene Volokh noted, "racist speech is constitutionally protected." Solely as a result of this incident, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE)...

Recently a student complained about a sermon that made him feel guilty and blamed the school for making students feel uncomfortable. This is not uncommon. Many universities now are so afraid of offending even one student, that political correctness has run amuck. However, this University is based on religion and so one would expect that discipline, good character and personal accountability would be a big part of the curriculum.

Maguire helped start Victims of Eminent Domain Fund, a non-profit dedicated to telling the stories of homeowners in that part of the county and stopping the turnpike from coming through. He says the owners of the home on S.E. 15th were told false things by the people acquiring the property...

That decision led to the monument’s removal from the Capitol grounds to the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs, a private agency. “We celebrate Christmas displays in towns like Chickasha and Yukon.
