Religionism is alive and well in Oklahoma, as I’ve blogged a few times already. In another sterling example of out-of-control religiosity, a Republican mayoral candidate in Tulsa wants to shove a creationism display into that city’s zoo (as reported in a Tulsa World editorial):

Sometimes a person simply has to make choice on a career path. In Anna Falling’s case it’s either be a politician or a minister.

Falling, the founder of several nonprofit Christian groups and a former city councilor, is running for mayor of Tulsa in the Sept. 8 Republican primary. Several issues are facing the city, not the least of which is a struggling economy.

But No. 1 on Falling’s priority list for the city is to place a Christian creationism display at the Tulsa Zoo.

“It’s first. 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,” she said.

But rest assured, this religiofascist isn’t going to stop there. No, she intends to do much more to advance the cause of Christianity, as Tulsa’s mayor:

Then, she wants to appoint people to boards, authorities and commissions who will “honor God.”

Note that this would, of course, violate the Constitution’s “no religious test” clause (found in Article VI section 3). But hey … one can’t let little things like Constitutionality get in the way of proselytizing! Doesn’t Jesus demand that a faithful believer violate the rule of law in order to carry his gospel to everyone and force them to accept it?
