With the Supreme Court set to debate gay marriage next week, we talk to Tanner Williams, a University of Oklahoma pole vaulter. This June, Tanner and his husband Scott celebrate their first anniversary. Tanner talks about how pole vaulting and his faith in God saved him in his homophobic town. His religion is important to him even as others use Christianity to keep gays down. We explore Tanner's story and the role of religion in the debate over gay rights.
If Sam Presti does not hire a coach that Kevin Durant is happy with, chances are Durant will leave Oklahoma City as an unrestricted free agent in July, 2016. That is a fact. Kevin Durant likes Kevin Ollie. That is a fact, too. And Kevin Ollie is Presti's No. 1 choice for the job. That fact was first reported by respected colleague Adam Zagoria, and it is 100 percent on the money.
So what to make of Ollie's statement today, tactfully written in the present tense, that he has "no plans" to leave UConn?
Well, put it this way. I have no plans to marry Taylor Swift. But if circumstances led to that being a possibility ...
As for the other two names that are out there, Billy Donovan and Fred Hoiberg, fans of the Thunder should ask themselves this: "Do either of those guys have a strong relationship with Durant?" Because you can be damn sure that Durant is going to have some input on who OKC's next coach will be. That is why my money is on Ollie -- even if it doesn't happen until the middle of the summer. I explain more in this interview on Erik Gee and Kelly Gregg on 107.7 The Franchise in Oklahoma City.
Our show is two fold tonight. Rachel Maddow states wtih sketchy pessimism that the US Supreme Court may overthrow the use of lethal injection, Oklahoma has a Plan B. They plan to use another lethal substance to eliminate inmates on death row.
The debate of marriage rights will even become more divisive in 2016 Presidential hopefuls.
Finally, how to find peace in your daily walk with God.
Coping is fairly easy if you don't have 20 mile commutes; if you open your Bible every a.m. and Read Psalms 31 or 91. Keep it peaceful and manage your life.

Oklahoma State Senator Joseph Silk has introduced a bill that would allow religious entities or businesses “operating consistently with sincerely held religious beliefs” to operate in accordance with those beliefs without facing legal consequences for doing so. In other words, if you are a wedding photographer or a bakery and you do not wish to provide your services for a same-sex wedding, based on religious objections, then there would be no legal consequences for refusing that business. Senator Silk has been facing a firestorm from LGBT activist since he gave an interview to the New York Times about the bill. The harsh push back has come as a result of the Times story taking a partial quote where he said that LGBT people “don’t have a right to be served in every single store,” He has responded to the Times quotes by posting a statement saying “Yes I did say that homosexuals do not have the right to be served in every store, just as I do not believe that I, my family, or anyone else have the right to be served in every private business. The right to provide services should be the decision of the business owners. We need to keep our country free and stop this radical, intolerant, movement.” We'll talk about the bill and the controversy.
Later we'll talk about some of the big stories from the past week. Don't forget about "Outrage of the Week" and "Headlines You May Have Missed".

With teams from two sports embarking on a journey to be champions, you're sure to get tons of asinine drama. Well both the NBA playoffs and the Stanley Cup playoffs are providing tons to keep Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti and George "the Howitzer" Gerbo busy.
Before we get to the postseason action, there's some drama stemming from a team already in the midst of their offseason. Scott Brooks has been fired by the Oklahoma City Thunder. Mike and George argue about the future of the Thunder franchise. Mike feels this organization is headed for disaster and isn't even an attractive job anymore. George is keeping the faith. Does this impact the futures of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook in OKC? Also, all signs point to Rajon Rondo and the Mavericks parting ways. Why did it get this bad? Can his antics actually be defended? Either way, it's surely fun and entertaining to watch Rondo act a fool.
Is the NBA's Eastern Conference Cleveland's to lose? Are the no star team ball concept Hawks the Cavs toughest test? What about the Wizards? How many teams are true contenders out west? Despite such a great season, will a lack of size eventually be the downfall of Golden State? Do the Clippers have what it takes for a deep playoff run? Has Houston found their best gameplan to win?
The Western Conference is wide open in the NBA, but is it down to only a couple of real threats in the NHL? Does any other west team have a shot at stopping a collision course of Anaheim and Chicago for a chance at the cup? Pavel Datsyuk is the Red Wings savior and the Caps are a bit different this year. Oh and, the Penguins problems go well beyond their play on the ice.
It's the Howitzer and Buzz-saw Show, conquering sports radio, one day, at a time....

Oklahoma has a history or racism. It is a fact that the worst race riot occured in Tulsa via " Greenwood" , Oklahoma . One of the first laws enacted in Oklahoma was one of segreatation. With the strong ties between the Klan and the Oil companies founded in Oklahoma. It is not surprising the recent events at Oklahoma University . The only way to impede free speech as I understand it - is to incite a riot or incite violence to a minority group. Let us have a discussion - you may be insulted on the program - be aware that oversensitivity as a form of abuse is not tolerated on this program.
All calls taken but I reserve the right to mute you . 646 716 7259
