Oklahoma Republican’s Bill Would Give “Almighty God” Ownership of All Wildlife

Oklahoma State Sen. Nathan Dahm just filed a bill, SB 1457, that changes a law saying “All wildlife found in this state is the property of the state.”

That’s not right, he thinks. So his bill crosses off those last two words and replaces them with “Almighty God.”


All wildlife found in this state is the property of Almighty God. The people of the State of Oklahoma place the authority to manage all wildlife pursuant to the Oklahoma Legislature.

Passing this bill wouldn’t change a damn thing, practically speaking, but Dahm, a home-schooled missionary, would get to insert Christianity into the law and that makes Baby Jesus happy. The people of Oklahoma wouldn’t benefit in any way.

But I guess God would get first dibs on all the hunting.
