AG Ready To Defend Chapel Threat

Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter has asked the president of East Central University in Ada to refer all questions regarding architectural features of its campus chapel to his office. This after the University received a letter from the group Americans United for Separation of Church and State asking the University to remove crosses and bibles from the chapel. Hunter says the letter is an implicit threat to take legal action and should be directed to his office as he is the state's chief legal officer. He says the United States Constitution does not require Oklahoma's public universities to remove items simply because they are connected to religious expression or heritage. "I will not allow guile and intimidation to dictate how Oklahoma's public universities meet their legal obligations," he said.
