Tulsa Falling. Oral.

Is Oklahoma ready to face the challenges and embrace the opportunities of the 21st century? This question can't be meaningfully addressed until its cosmopolitan center, Tulsa, successfully acknowledges the 20th century, or really any of the double-digit centuries:

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.”
Hallelujah! The city of Oral Roberts, Oral Roberts Ministries, and Oral Roberts University is notoriously a hotbed of non-recognizing the fact that god needs to be honored. After all, would people go around inserting the word "oral" into names in a city that recognizes the fact that god needs to be honored?

By dint of her understanding that no city government has ever solved a problem without first recognizing the fact that god needs to be honored, I expect this candidate to do well in Tulsa's next mayoral election, and if elected, to spread creationist bullshit to the zoo and beyond, orally and otherwise.
