Since writing last week’s article several have asked why OKWU is taking such a firm stand. Local radio and television stations have asked for interviews. RedState, the Tulsa World and several other blogs and media outlets have picked up my original op-ed. Many are curious. Why is this so important to Oklahoma Wesleyan University and the Wesleyan Church? Perhaps the best way for me to answer this question is to refer to the words of history rather than use my own.
