Yep.  : )     Unless the creationism display fulfills the same
purpose as the Hindu or Am. Indian items, it doesn't belong
in the zoo:
       
       "Zoo officials had argued that the zoo does not advocate
        religion 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."

Heck, as one can read, the cultural symbols of elephants
aren't even all religious, so I think it's silly for this Dan Hicks
guy to take religious offense!

I wonder why it was considered more important to the Zoo to keep the Hindu
God Ganesh and the American Indian spiritual text on display than it was to
avoid adding a display on Creationism. 

If they can do that, it's time to haul the 10 commandments back into the
courthouse! <G>.

Now the Buddhists, Shinto, Wikka and all the other groups can demand equal
space. (Animals? We don't have room for no stinkin' animals!)

Bizarre use of a zoo!  I think the purpose of a zoo is getting a bit skewed
here?
