Jesus vs. Noah: The Great Tax Debate

leave a comment »

If Jesus stood for one thing, it was lower taxes. But not an end to pork barrel politics: he was the first guy to really pioneer creating hand-outs out of thin air. You’re really gonna tell me loaves and fish are different than corporate welfare? Puh-leez biblical sister friend.

So just as the Christian right freaked out and got the National Portrait Gallery to remove a video of Jesus covered in ants, it was revealed today that the Creationism Museum in Kentucky is planning on building a Noah’s Ark themed amusement park by using enormous tax break incentives.

When completed in 2014, the park will feature “a $24.5 million replica of Noah’s Ark built completely out of wood…a 14-acre walled city (and) a Tower of Babel.” Don’t we already have an amusement park with a fantastical made up cast of characters called Disneyland?

But the plan is not without controversy. The area’s airport is sorely in need of new funds, but local officials have defended the Amusement Park by saying “With every ark there is a rainbow and at the end of this rainbow is a pot of gold”. Wait Noah is a Lepruchan? How is that any less offensive than ant covered Jesus?

I really feel that the stupid thing here isn’t a Noah Ark Park, but rather the fickle nature of funding for religious art. If we’re gonna pay to stick a bunch of rednecks a wooden ship full of animal feces, I don’t know why we can’t also cover Jesus in animal feces. He was a shepard. He’s used to it.
