Update: In less than 24-hours the Tri-State Freethinkers passed their first goal of $2,000 to erect their first billboard!
The Tri-State Freethinkers are raising money to erect billboards around Kentucky to counter the Ark Encounter as an immoral theme park that celebrates genocide and highly inappropriate for children.
The park, which is run by creationist Ken Ham’s Answers in Genesis recently won a court battle against the state of Kentucky, allowing the park to discriminate employees while receiving taxpayer dollars.
The group says:
Scheduled to open in Williamstown, Kentucky on July 7, 2016, the park celebrates a biblical parable of genocide and incest. While they have a legal right to celebrate their mythology, we find it immoral and highly inappropriate as family entertainment. Help us remind the surrounding community and potential patrons that the biblical story of Noah’s Ark is immoral and should not be encouraged as a family fun day.
I highly agree with the group and I have, since day one, called the park a genocidal theme park as it celebrates, albeit fictional, the death of millions, if not billions, of people and animals around the world.
The group is also offering a special deal for those who donate $500 or more. You get your picture on one of the billboard depicting you as one of the drowning heathens.
