Now this is a Woman I would NEVER vote for ….Posted: August 12, 2009
Coming of age in the 70s with Shirley Chisolm (my all time shero) Bela Abzug, and a lot of other women politicians to serve as role models, my first instinct as a new voter was to check off every female name on the ballot. That was until I heard of and listened to Phyliss Schafly. I happened across her smug smile on C Span last night accepting some reward and was reminded how there are women who are not the friends of other women. She’s the reason I always check for certain things whenever a vote for a woman. Phyliss Schalfy made a career and name for herself selling out other women.
This woman politician to pictured to the right appears not to be the friend of reality and probably is an Eagle Forum member. She’s running for the mayor of Tulsa, OK which is very close to where I was born. Frankly, I wouldn’t vote for her to be in charge of the Sanitation Department. There would be too much stuff to shovel.
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.”
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.”
“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 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.”
Falling’s campaign has been overtly Christian-themed. But she said she wants to embrace people of all religions, not alienate them.
Well, she’s certainly alienated me and probably any one that attends a mosque, a synagogue, a dharma center, or any other religious facility that’s not a church.
So, what’s a zoo got to do with proslyetizing creationism any way? At least it’s an equal opportunity zoo.
The zoo does have displayed an elephant-like sculpture said to depict the Hindu god Ganesha and an exhibit that deals with the creation of the earth from a scientific point of view.
Tulsa’s a pretty good size town. I’d like to know why she thinks this is the city’s foremost concern, also. This is the problem that comes with just voting for some one based on some specific trait. Some times, they package is not what you expect once you’ve opened it.
