Kentucky....

Steve Beshear humiliates the state of Kentucky (VIDEO UPDATE)

(video of entire press conference coming soon!)

Move over Jim Gooch. There's a new sheriff (of humiliating our state) in town. And his name is Governor Steve Beshear.

I just got back from the press conference where Steve Beshear announced his enthusiastic support for a Creationist theme park ("Ark Encounter") that teaches children that not only did humans live with dinosaurs several thousand years ago, but they rode on "Noah's Ark" with them. And the tax breaks that Beshear supports giving them.

Be ashamed, Kentucky. Be very ashamed.

While Ken Ham of Answer's in Genesis (makers of the Intellectual Child Abuse Mecca, known also as "The Creation Museum") was sadly not in attendance, reps from AiG and "Ark Encounter, LLC" were there to speak of how wonderful the Governor and his office have been in supporting this project and it's pursuit of tax breaks from the state. Grant County Judge/Executive Darrell Link echoed this point, adding that he believes strongly in the evangelical mission of the Flintstones Park. Damon Thayer was behind me, and could be heard telling the AiG folks how excited he was to have this in the heart of his district.

The Governor's press release is below, where we learn that the project will cost $150 million to be built (opening Spring 2014), and they expect 1.6 million visitors in its first year. No word yet on if Dudley Webb is helping them build it.

Barefoot and Progressive

Annual budget of 'Answers in Genesis': 13 Million

'Support' menu on their website - items:

1. Donate
2. Pray

Creationists' priorities clearly defined...

Do you really find tax breaks to spur the creation of new business shocking? It's Kentucky, the **** hole will probably be a popular attraction.

You hate religion and you dream of fascism

Florida has a huge transplant of NE Left wingers waiting to die. So that would explain fail down there. But Kentucky, Alabama etc. PROFIT!

Good for them. They're planning on creating around 900 jobs. That's great for the state of Kentucky.

How could Noah's Ark have had dinosaurs on it? They didn't have electricity to power the fences needed to contain the ****ing Raptors!

Yep, this is exactly the kind of case the ACLU is there for. They'll be able to defend Ark Encounter, LLC and insure the business gets equal protection under the law and a fair shot at those tax breaks.

Well they've already defended the Westboro church "God hates fags" people so I guess if some tacky themepark wants to make money off of Jesus then they'll help those guys out too if there is a reason.
