  1. wtf. kentucky cant fix roads or pay teachers and they spend taxpayer money on a religions theme park:

    Americans United for Separation of Church and State today blasted officials in Kentucky for their decision to award more than $40 million in tax incentives to a theme park centered around Noah’s Ark.

    A fundamentalist Christian group sought the aid to erect a so-called “Ark Park” in Williamstown. Gov. Steve Beshear backed the scheme, saying it would bring jobs to the state.

    Americans United says that’s not a good enough reason for the state to promote a religious enterprise like the Ark Park, which is being constructed in conjunction with evangelist Ken Hamm’s Answers in Genesis ministry.

    “The state of Kentucky should not be promoting the spread of fundamentalist Christianity or any other religious viewpoint,” said the Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United. “Let these folks build their fundamentalist Disneyland without government help.”

    The controversial park will include a full-scale replica of Noah’s Ark and models of dinosaurs, which Hamm insists were carried on the famous biblical boat.

    I don't think Steve would ever go to Kentucky.
     
  8. no. as long as i can remember i had a problem with that one. i believed most of the jesus story until 50 but by then i had dismissed literal bible theology.
    you have to understand how the christian mind works. through a process called cognitive dissonance christians are able to simply not think about anything that interferes with their need to believe.

    So then by your own admission, the majority of your life you were brainwashed into believing in the bible. But now you think everyone who believes in the bible is "retarded" does that mean you spent the majority of your life as a "retard?"

    It would seem fairly hypocritical, in my point of view, to claim that you were brainwashed but everyone else is retarded. Unless of course you fancy yourself as some sort of Uber genius, who is simply smarter than everyone else.
     
  10. Another example of a little christian love to make you feel warm all over.
