In Grant County (KY), Home of Ark Encounter, a School District May Be Sued for Promoting Religion

According to the Kentucky-based Tri-State Freethinkers, the Grant County Schools have a long history of promoting Christianity and it’s about time they put a stop to it. The group sent a long letter detailing the constitutional violations and they’re giving the District 30 days to respond before they file a formal lawsuit.

And if that county sounds familiar, it may be because Grant County is also the home to Ark Encounter, Creationist Ken Ham‘s $100 million Noah’s Ark theme park. So faith-based ignorance runs deep in these parts.
