Flintstone Truthers Still Demanding KY Taxpayers Subsidize Discrimination

The surprise here is not that the creation museum assholes are violating the law - given that the Supreme Court has ruled that freakazoids are above the law, they'll probably get away with it - but that Kentucky officials are actually calling them on it.

Linda Blackford at the Herald:

A controversial plan to award $18 million in state tax incentives to a religious-themed amusement park in Grant County that plans to feature a life-size Noah's Ark could be in jeopardy because of potential hiring discrimination.

In a series of letters with Ark Encounter LLC, Kentucky's top tourism official said the preliminary tax credits are stalled because of language in the park's job application that requires "salvation testimony" and a "Creation belief statement."


The state was notified of the posting by Americans United for the Separation of Church and State.
And you should be giving money to Americans United right now, because they're the only ones keeping both eyes on the arkpark motherfuckers.
"The commonwealth does not provide incentives to any company that discriminates on the basis of religion, and we will not make any exception for Ark Encounter LLC," Stewart wrote.
The over-under on the number of Kentucky General Assembly candidates who will be condemning that policy in loud voices between now and November 4 is all of them.
