Kentucky: Ark Encounter's dodgy land deal reversed

Kentucky: Ark Encounter's dodgy land deal reversed July 25, 2017

The story so far … Ken Ham’s ludicrous Ark Encounter, unhappy with having to pay a proposed safety tax, decides to get itself tax exempted by selling the land it sits on to a non-profit associate for $10.00.
State tourism authorities in Kentucky smartly retaliate by withdrawing the biblical theme park’s $18-million tax incentive.
Ark Encounter says “ouch, we all shot ourselves in the foot”, and the land, we learn today, has been transferred back to the for-profit Ark Encounter – for $10.00.

Next chapter in this sorry tale: Ken Ham, standing in the ashes of his burned-out ark, tells arson investigators:

A big boy did it, then ran away. He was waving a rainbow flag.

"So, basically, the people complaining about the ad are admitting that they are bigots/racists/homophobes/etc., and ..."

    Where are the good old days, when you sold a bad investment for one Dollar?

    $10.00! They screwed themselves. How appropriate. The snake charmer bitten by his own snake. I hope the albatross drives him into bancruptcy.

    They should float it on the Stoke Exchange.

    Surely someone in authority will take note if this and ask if this us Fraud with a big F?

  • Robster

    Any lingering trust this god besotted fool and his like minded ilk may have enjoyed has been further eroded. As if overt fraud, institutionalised child rape, silly dogma and rituals aren’t enough to expose these people for the twits they are, Ham’s recent attempts at subterfuge are reinforcing what we already know.

    Mr Ham is caught between two gods – the money god and the fairy god – it’s a ‘Ham’ sandwich ! Sorry….

    @1859: No, I think you’ll find that it’s a jam sandwich.
    There was a sad bigot called Ham,
    Who got himself into a jam;
    He tried to save tax,
    But was screwed to the max,
    And said, “What have I done now – oh, damn!”

    It’s not often one sees “smart” and “Kentucky” in the same sentence. It certainly makes a refreshing change.
