Lions, Tigers, & Prayers, Oh My!

Tulsa mayoral candidate Anna Failing Falling thinks the zoo doesn't have enough Jesus, so she made a speech there, containing sound logic and no contradictions whatsoever:

"By rejecting the Creation exhibit at the zoo, God has been dishonored. By placing the images of other gods and creation stories, excluding the Biblical account of Creation, the city has challenged the 1st Amendment that states that Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof."

"We wonder why Tulsa has nearly twice the national average for violent crimes or the police have been called over 9,000 times in the last 4 years to the Tulsa Public Schools. Where God is not honored at any level, we see the results of these decisions.

Some may ask why this issue during a Mayoral campaign? And I say why not? Any leader seeking to be in any office – public or private – must humble themselves and call upon the Lord first. This is why this is the first stop on our public campaign. Our city must restore the foundation of faith necessary to rebuilding wholeness in Tulsa by choosing board members who will honor God, love His creation, and care about this community by restoring focus on faith and family. Specifically, I will look for board members who will not only prosper this zoo tremendously in attendance and improve this zoo’s condition and appearance, but we will also look for people who want to characterize the origins of both man and animals in a way that honors the Judeo-Christian science that proves God as creator."

...

"Now more than ever we must call upon our Heavenly creator and His Church to intervene in our city struggles ahead. The first way we can do this is by humbling asking the city to accept this beautiful rendering of the Creation story from our faith tradition as an act of thanks for the grand design God has had for you and I since the foundation of the earth. You were all created for such a time as this – will you stand for truth today? I choose this day to stand for Truth no matter the cost, my reputation, my life and my fortune – all $27.50 of it. We can no longer remain silent."



Video won't embed, so click here to see the news clip, with one hell of an idiot voter at the end.




And look, Palin Junior here even has a blog!

Wow! What a great turn-out for the Zoo Rally yesterday despite the heat. Thank you for coming; thank you for not being deterred to stand for Truth.

The zoo is just one example where God has been dishonored. We have all observed other areas in our city where He is dishonored as well. Why is it we have no problem allowing in anything and everything except God?"





"I want to thank my supporters for your willingness to speak and stand for what you believe in. I was humbled by your presence and look forward to a new day in Tulsa where we return to the roots of our nation and city’s foundation.

Without God, our great city will continue to experience nearly twice the national average in violent crime. We will continue to see police intervene in our schools to the tune of 9,000 incidents over the last 4 years. We have all witnessed what happens in our cities when God is rejected.

Unless God builds our house it will be in vain. No amount of street repair, police on the streets and bigger, fancier buildings will change the heart of the people. Unless we call upon God, our land will not be healed.

I stand firm on Seeking First God’s Kingdom and His Righteousness and then, all these things will be added . Our City and our Nation is at a crossroads. We must decide where our help will come from.

As the comments posted throughout the site today suggest, there are many view points on this issue. Yet we will not be deterred for putting God first in all things. And yes, that means before streets and crime and budgets; because if we don’t put God first, then nothing else matters. Without God, nothing will be “fixed.” .

Thank you again for your prayers as we proceed to bring God back to our seat of government. As George Washington stated on Feb. 22, 1732, “It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible”


Of course, there is no record of Washington ever having said anything like that...
