Zoo to feature creationism display

Hrmmm. Apparently now they consider creationism to be a “religion”….
The Tulsa Park and Recreation Board voted 3-1 on Tuesday in favor of a display depicting God’s creation of the world in six days and his rest on the seventh, as told in Genesis, the first book of the Bible.
The vote came after more than two hours of public comment from a standing-room-only crowd.
Zoo employees, religious leaders and others spoke in opposition, saying religion shouldn’t be part of the taxpayer-funded scientific institution.
But those who favored the creationist exhibit, including Mayor Bill LaFortune, argued that the zoo already displayed religious items, including the statue of the Hindu god, Ganesh, outside the elephant exhibit and a marble globe inscribed with an American Indian saying: “The earth is our mother. The sky is our father.”
