Notable evolutionary biologist, author, and speaker Richard Dawkins was recently invited to speak on the campus of the University of Oklahoma as part of the school's celebration of Charles Darwin. However, Oklahoma lawmakers are working to silence Dawkins with the passage of House Bill 1015 (RTF), which reads in part: '... the University of Oklahoma ... has invited as a public speaker on campus, Richard Dawkins of Oxford University, whose published opinions, as represented in his 2006 book "The God Delusion," and public statements on the theory of evolution demonstrate an intolerance for cultural diversity and diversity of thinking and are views that are not shared and are not representative of the thinking of a majority of the citizens of Oklahoma ...

I'm not so much ignoring the OP as I am attempting to stop an argument before it starts. You have twice singled out Oklahomans for your vitriolic bile.
I'm certain I put you on ignore after dealing with the total lack of logic coupled with unmitigated hatred from your last Okie bashing thread. Forgive me if I don't respond further; hopefully the ignore button will "take" this time and I won't even know your continuing to have your conniption fit over the "fringe" that are my fellow Okies.
