THE fun never ends! Tulsa World , the daily newspaper for Tulsa, Oklahoma, and the second-most widely circulated newspaper in the state, has this story: Falling says putting Christian creationism display in the Tulsa Zoo is top priority . Here are some excerpts, with bold added by us:
Republican mayoral candidate Anna Falling said Tuesday that putting a Christian creationism display in the Tulsa Zoo is No. 1 in importance among city issues that include violent crime, budget woes and bumpy streets.
“It’s first,” she said to calls of “hallelujah” at a rally outside the zoo. “If we can’t come to the foundation of faith in this community, those other answers will never come. We need to first of all recognize the fact that God needs to be honored in this city.”
Makes sense to us. First, set up a creationist display in the zoo. After that, all the other problems will be solved. Let’s read on:
Falling, who has founded several Christian nonprofits and is a former city councilor, also said the next mayor needs to appoint people to city boards, authorities and commissions who will “honor God.”
Inspired policy. We continue:
When asked whether she meant she would recruit Christians to serve the city, Falling said she was talking about “people committed to their churches,” and when asked whether she meant Christian churches, she said, “churches, yes.”
This is a campaign that should be worth watching. Hey, there are comments at the end of the article. A couple of them say this woman is the greatest. All the others think she should be locked away. But who knows? She may be just what Tulsa needs.
