Satanic Temple Claims Religious Exemption… in Support of Medically Accurate Information About Abortion

In light of the Hobby Lobby ruling, religious groups everywhere are jumping at the chance to deny women fundamental health care on the basis of the owners’ religious beliefs.

The Satanic Temple is using the same principle to do just the opposite.

In case you’re not familiar with them, The Satanic Temple is an organization whose mission is to “encourage benevolence and empathy among all people, reject tyrannical authority, advocate practical common sense and justice, and be directed by the human conscience to undertake noble pursuits guided by the individual will.” In their next pro-human move, the group has just announced that it will assert a religious exemption from state-mandated “informed consent” abortion laws, and they say the Supreme Court’s decision strengthens their case.

Noah’s Ark Theme Park Could Receive More Than $18,000,000 in Tax Breaks from Kentucky Tourism Board

It was based on the assumption that the park would break ground within three years and cost around $173,000,000 in total.

But none of that ever happened. Despite Ken Ham‘s debate against Bill Nye, they couldn’t raise enough money for the park to break ground. Now, they’re going back to the Tourism board to request tax breaks just on the first phase of building. It’s $100,000,000 less than the previous estimate and could still lead to more than $18,000,000 in tax incentives:

Why is the “King of Homeschooling” Trying to Block a Treaty Regarding the Rights of the Disabled?
