I doubt the Hindu elephant and the American Indian inscription was placed there because of their religious significance in the first place. Jesus Christ.

Welcome to Jesus-land, folks ! Travel back in time 300 years to a gentler, simpler age, when adultery was a hanging offence, and "Fair Trade for Africa" meant increasing the amount of rum you paid for a slave. Check your IQ at the turnstile...

You're right!! At the end of the article it says that the Hindu elephant was part of an exhibit showing cultural representations of the elephant worldwide -the Republican Party elephant was included in the same exhibit!!

But ooooooh no, that's discrimination against Christians! what an outrage! outrage my @ss. I wish these freaks would climb in a hole and go away.

Then I guess they'd better get an ass as well or Falcon84 will be calling them.

What the hell is going on over in the States?

Religion is fine ... but it seems to me, that too many people are taking too many things too literally. Which is fine and their right. But when they start forcing their views onto others .... it becomes a problem. W T H?

Well, would it fly if somebody suggested a depiction of the Darwinian account (i.e. the truth)? Sometimes I wish we could ship all the fundies off to their own remote Island somewhere, or at least quarantine them to the US - but then the rest of the sane population will have to deal with their rampant stupidity .....

Just a reminder:

"The new display will include a disclaimer that says it represents one view. City attorneys also advised it be placed alongside other cultures' views of creation."

You guys are seriously over-reacting.
ALL religion contains absurd teachings.
Why do you all get so worked-up about Christianity? Aren't you embarassed?

Because I am a Christian. Why should I be embarrassed? I'm not being a jackass over a statue of an elephant. Following their logic, they should now create exhibits representing all creation theories and all religions. Why the fuck do they have to cry about an elephant statue that is there for its historical/cultural significance. The exhibit isn't endorsing Hinduism.

Limit your problems to somewhere in your own country I suggest Sitka or Adak or somewhere else in the Aleutians chain. We have our own plans for Elsemere besides, think of what would happen to all the poor Musk Ox and Polar Bears up there if you dropped all those fundies in on them.

While I agree with the reasoning behind the vote, this is outright wrong:

Quote:

So, unless I have misinterpreted this, the zoo (run by the city and hence the state) can claim one of the cultural views displayed represents theirs? Regardless of where this occured in the USA, last I checked I wasn't christian, they cannot be representing me, can they?

Quote:
She expressed qualms about the zoo delving into theological debate.

"I'm afraid we are going in the wrong direction," she said.

I'm with the Tulsa Zoo exhibit curator Kathleen Buck-Miser on this, there should not have been ANY religious tag on these animals, people who visit zoo's do not want to learn anything as long as it threatens their most cherished cultural believes.

Quote:
"I do not like the idea of scripture at the zoo," she said

Well I am a hindu and I wonder why the hell did your board vote to included it in the first place?? Either all or nothing, end of debate.

Quote:
Zoo officials had argued that the zoo does not advocate religion

That's not what was quoted above, where there would be a display noting which culture represents 'all of us'  Yeah sure

Quote:
and that displays like the elephant statue are meant to show the animal's image among cultures. The same exhibit includes the Republican Party's elephant symbol.

Golly, I didn't know that Jesus-lovers use an elephant to signify a demigod or saint to represent their almighty, go figure. Well that settles it, those "two hours of public comment from a standing-room-only crowd" should be punished for being ignroant. Lord knows I am not the one to decide their fate.  Smile

Sadly, some think they can.
