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 also 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."
Falling, who has founded several Christian nonprofit groups and is a former city councilor, also said the next mayor needs to appoint people to boards, authorities and commissions who will "honor God."
"We will also look for people who want to characterize the origins of both man and animals in a way that honors Judeo-Christian science that proves God as the creator," she said.
When asked whether she meant that she would recruit Christians to serve the city, Falling said she was talking about "people committed to their churches." When asked whether she meant Christian churches, she said, "churches, yes."
Can you say scary? Her number 1 priority would be to put a creationism display at the zoo? Above violent crime, budget woes and bumpy streets?
All I can say is if the city of Tulsa puts her into office, they will get exactly what they deserve and in honor of Ms Falling and her priorities I thought I'd post a neat little chart that displays one of creationism's latest attempt to shoe horn their worldview into science that might be showing up in a zoo near you.
I guess if you believe in creationism, you have to fit all those variations of human evolution somewhere into the story...and apparently into Tulsa politics.
